Follow Friday #39

Thanks to Parajunkee and Alison Can Read for hosting Follow Friday every week!

This weeks question:

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.

A: I have to be honest.... it was The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I thought the cover was dull and boring and figured the book would be about the same. Course, now that I've read the book the cover makes total sense.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I am, unfortunately, a cover snob. But I am totally glad that I finally broke down and bought this book.

Can't wait to see your answers!


  1. Oh man! Luckily you read the book if not you will be the most unfortunate human ever! Actually the thing that attracts me to this book is the hologram at the cover! Hahah

  7. Just saw this same choice on another blog. I totally agree, I still haven't read it yet, but now I want to because the MOVIE makes it look great! Anyway, new follower, here's mine

  8. I agree that the cover doesn't really tell you much about the story. But now that I have read it I like it. Following through GFC, Linky, and facebook.

  10. I, too have seen the cover on many many posts this Friday haha. Don't like it either. Then again, I'm probably the only person on the whole wide world that doesn't want to read The Hunger Games.

  13. You see Hungenr Games doesn't bother me because at least it's clean looking. It's not one of the mopey face girl covers. But I do see your point.
