Follow Friday


Do we really need a preface? Anyway, Feature and Follow is by Paranjunkee and Alison Can Read and is all about blog love.

Q: Best Cover? What is the best cover of a book that you’ve read and didn’t like?

A: Oh, easy peasy. Masque of Red Death by Bethany Griffin. I loved the cover, but I didn't like the book. I couldn't connect with any of the characters, and finally just abandoned it somewhere near the end. I don't even want to know how it ended, or if there is a new book in the series. It wasn't sucky writing or a sucky plot, it just completely failed to make any kind of impact on me.
What are your picks? Leave your links, let's share some follower love :)

  2. Hadn't heard of this one either but the title is also the title of a Edgar Allen Poe story. Any correlation? I like the cover too. New Follower via GFC. My FFs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Friday! :D

  4. I love the cover of this one - the UK paperback one isn't so good though! It's a shame you didn't like it, I've heard loads of mixed reviews on this one!

  8. Too bad you didn't like it. My biggest problem was with the characters. There was a lot of emotion disconnect. New Follower.

  9. Almost all of the books people have chosen are books that I have tried to read over and over and never gotten past the first couple of chapters. Including this book, "Masque". Maybe that's a sign for me- that if an author just can't capture my attention and make me want to read the book from the beginning- that there's no way I'm going to like the book. And I should just stop and officially mark these "DNF".

    1. I was thinking of a DNF blog button, there really are so many these days! I can't stick with a book for long, either. Just an awesome ending won't do it for me. Thanks for the follow!
