Follow Friday

Follow Friday time! Follow Friday is hosted by the lovely ladies at Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. The meme promotes new blog followings along with featuring a book related question. This week's question is:

Worst cover? What is the worst cover of a book you've read and loved?

I received Kevin's Point of View from the author, Del Shannon, back when I first started Lost Amongst the Shelves. It was actually my first physical book I received for review. I was a little skeptical at first, especially with the cartoon doodles on the cover (I mean, there's a kid with no neck and a naked butt)...but this book is HILARIOUS! The two main characters reminded me a lot of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid and the trouble they get into is laugh out loud worthy. Such a fun and enjoyable read across all age groups that the cover just doesn't do it justice.

Leave me a comment below with links to your FF and I'll be sure to return the favor!


  1. Great choice. The combo of the lack of neck (odd looking body) and the nakedness that combines to make it extra awful. Awkward. Just the kind of book I wouldn't want to keep seeing on my table, shelves, etc.

  2. I think the naked butt alone would make me wanna pick it up.

  4. Oh good. I'm kind of glad that is a butt because I was worried that it was a face that looked like a butt LOL!

    Have a good weekend!

    My FF!

  6. new follower through GFC as lucyatmax(no pic). Please visit/follow me at: bethartfromtheheart.blogspot.com . My response was....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.
    Have a great weekend Kristan!

  7. I'm pretty sure my kids could have drawn a better pic!! LOL!!

  8. With the butt showing like that, I would be a bit embarrassed to pick this up. Still, it seems like a nice read. New Follower.

  9. Oh, that really is a horrible cover haha I'd have to say that the worst cover I've seen is that of THE ANCILLARY'S MARK. Great book...hideous text-book like cover :)
