Feature and Follow #6

Q: Worst cover? What is the worst cover of a book that you’ve read and loved?

A:  I hate to diss on anybody or anything, but, if I have to say what cover I really thought was ugly, it would have to be the Stephanie Plum series covers.   I truly love the books, but could do without the colorful jackets.   Course, since I own every book in the series and I love them all, the jackets are acceptable by associated love for the books.   Sorry Janet...nothing personal.   Strange I know, because I truly am a color junkie.   Go figure.

Sabina said...

They are colourful. I have the first 2 books in the series (yet to read them) and must admit if they weren't recommended to me I wouldn't have picked them up. I'm such a cover lover and definitely pick me books by the covers. =/

Thanks for stopping by my FF and I'm following you too. =)

I can definitely agree with that. It's actually part of the reason I haven't read the series, I think. Thanks for stopping by and following. Will follow you back.
And P.S. you definitely weren't rude, that cover was hideous. lol
