It's been almost 3 weeks that I've been MIA from blogging, but I finally got a new computer so I'm back and just in time for another Follow Friday! This meme, hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee, features two blogs and a book related question to promote/expand blogs. This week's question is...
Have you ever looked at a book's cover and thought, this is going to be horrible? But instead was pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.
Ok, so I have a feeling I might be crucified for this, but at first glance I wasn't too thrilled by The Hunger Games cover. I didn't outright think it was going to be horrible, but I wasn't expecting the love I now have for the series. Now, before I'm attacked, I read the book when it first came out and there wasn't any hype surrounding it so I had no idea what to expect. With that said, the cover just seemed a little boring. You only have the title and mockingjay pin so there isn't really enough detail to draw you in.
However, after reading the book, and learning the significance of the pin, the simplicity of the cover fits so well. There is so much political upheaval, death, violence, loss of innocence and struggle for survival that a busy cover would just detract from the story.
What was your answer for this FF? Leave a comment with a link and I'll come check it out!
