Follow Friday (6)

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted at Parajunkee & Alison Can Read , used to meet new friends from the blogging world!


Q: Have you ever looked at book's cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.

Oh! That happened to me recently, with Geek Girl by Cindy C. Benett. The cover is not particularly bad-looking, but I thought it would be boring and drag out, so I was really surprised to see that it was actually a really nice read.

Here is the cover. It's not so bad, but I didn't expect to like the book so much :)

I've probably done that more times than should be fair to a book because of the whole "don't judge a book by its cover" thing LOL! x) Like with the Hunger Games -- from the dark and simple cover and strange synopsis, I didn't think it would be my kind of book but it ended up being one of my all-time faves! Now I know better than to do that (most of the time)! ;)

Awesome answer, Sophie! If you liked Geek Girl much more than you thought you would've, then I think I might have to add it to my TBR pile. I hope you have an amazing weekend! :) ♥

I really like the art style of the cover, but I don't think it's really great as a book cover. I'll have to check the book out!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! ;)

I've actually had similar experiences, where there's nothing noticeably wrong with the cover, but it reminds me of another book that I didn't enjoy, and so I avoid it. New follower.
Here’s my FF!

So glad that you love the book, Sophie! I agree that it's not really bad looking, but it's not really striking either. Great choice1 :)

Alison Can Read said...

Hopping through. It is a rather boring looking cover. Glad it was good though.

I wouldn't pick up this book if I saw that cover in a book store. I'm glad that "bad" covers don't always have to equal "bad" content
