Feature & Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read. It’s a great way to find new blogs to follow and allow others to find your blog! Find out how to participate here!
Here’s this week’s question:
Q: Have you ever looked at a book’s cover and thought, This is going to be horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.
Well, I didn’t really think it was a bad cover, or that the book was going to be horrible, but I wasn’t so sure about Finder by Terri-Lynne DeFino when it was chosen by one of the girls in my book club for us to read last year. I mean, it’s not a bad cover at all, but it was so different than what I was used to that I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy it. But I ended up LOVING the book! It was exciting and had plenty of the twists and turns that I love, with some great complex characters! If you enjoy fantasy, you should totally check it out!
TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads, where bloggers can recap their week and answer a blogging/bookish question.
Here’s this weeks question:
Promote An Author: Is there a particular author you wish got more recognition? Pick one author & tell us why we should read their work.
Hmm, this one is a hard one. I’d probably say Scott Westerfeld. I know he’s not an unknown author by any means, but it seems like a lot of people have read Uglies and then didn’t like the second book in the series, Pretties, as well, and they stopped reading the series right there. I loved the whole series, but Pretties was probably my least favorite. I just went out on Tuesday and bought the Uglies manga, Shay’s Story, and I’m really excited to read it! I also want to read all the other books he has written. If you like Sci-Fi you should definitely check out Uglies, and although I haven’t yet read Leviathan, I’ve heard it’s a great one for fans of Steampunk.
