I haven't done this meme in a long time, so I thought I'd give it a whirl!
Today's question is:
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.
Although I do have a physical copy of this book, I ended up listening to it on audio, which is a great equalizer when it comes to book covers. You can't hear a bad cover on audio! And I ended up really liking Grave Sight, which features the very un-Sookie like Harper Connelly. It felt more like a real mystery and less like a paranormal soap opera- not that I'm against paranormal soap operas, I am Team Eric after all.
Anyway, I get the whole picture frame tie in, but the colors are pastel-ish, and the title of the book is way to sloppy and hard to see with that horrible pink wallpaper behind it. I just don't dig it. I think maybe all the beautiful YA covers of the last few years have turned me into a cover snob. I hope not! Because there are plenty of pretty books that contain horrible stories inside. But that, my friends, is a Feature and Follow topic for another day.
So, what's your Ugly Duckling cover/Beautiful Swan story pick?
And if you follow me, be sure to let me know so I can return the favor!
