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 :)


  1. Never read this book but I love the cover. New GFC follower!

    Here's my Feature and Follow

  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

  3. I haven't seen this book before, but I love the cover... especially that red umbrella!

    I'm one of your newest followers :)

  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!

  5. I love the cover, but it just didn't appeal to me. I've heard a lot of mixed things for this one.

  7. I've been wanting to read this but I saw different reviews about it (including yours).
    Thanks for stoppin by my FF and following!

  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".

  21. This is a great cover. I'm sorry that you couldn't get into the book. I liked it, despite the main character not being very easy to root for.
