Feature and Follow Friday

Thursday, August 23, 2012

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read

Here is this week's question:

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

Amber I. is more into covers than Amber R. is. So when we started talking about this, Amber I. had all the ideas. But we came to a mutual, albeit hard decision. Succubus Revealed by Richelle Mead was a cover that we didn't really enjoy. The series was friggen amazing, of course. But the cover just didn't cut it. Georgina is supposed to be HOT, like smoking! And the cover just wasn't cutting it. Not too mention she didn't even look like the girl that was on the other covers. It was just really underwhelming and not what we pictured Georgina as at all. 

So since we are this weeks featured blogger we did a little interview and here it is.  

When did you start blogging?
Amber I Started the blog in January 2011 and Amber R. jumped on in May 2011.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
Meeting all the other bloggers and talking to authors. We love having a group of people that love reading as much as we do. Plus getting to recommend books to other people and having them fall in love with a book just based on our recommendation is amazingly awesome!

What is your favorite book(s)?
This is a toughy, we love so many books. How much time do you have? lol okay okay if we have to pick just a few we'd say anything from Keri Arthur (can't just pick one of her series) Chicagoland Vampire series, Night Huntress series, Morganville Vampire series, Darkest London series, Otherworld series, Highlander series by KMM, Okay we must stop now or else we will just keep going.

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
There have been a lot of amazing things that have happened due to blogging, but we must say the best thing ever is meeting Rachel Caine and having a few drinks with her. We got to sit there and talk to her and she knew who we were by our blog and it was surreal. If you know us then you know we talk about this moment often. We are still stunned that it happened and will continue talking about it forever!

Thanks so much for stopping by! We always follow back and comment back (But not if you have captcha.) Captcha is so annoying. So yes we will totally move on if you have it. Sorry but its useless and annoying. I promise I am not a robot! :) 

See who else is hopping and make some new friends!


  1. Ya I can see what you mean. The cover is not super impressive. I'm still having trouble thinking of covers I don't like because I buy books because I like their covers a lot of times.

    1. I do the same but this was the last book in the series so of coarse I was buying it. I just do not at all like it.

  2. I've heard great things about Rachel Mead's books (haven't read them yet), but yeah, the covers are underwhelming, that one more than most of them. I am a sucker for a good cover.

    Congrats on the feature! Old follower :-)

    Here's my FF!

  3. Congratulations on being a featured blog. I'm following you via GFC. I'm not a big fan of the cover- although I liked the series.

  4. Congrats on being featured!! You guys are right, that is a pretty bad cover. I probably wouldn't look twice at it.

    Here is mine

  5. Congrats on being featured this week! We chose the cover of Bloodlines for our FF. Richelle Mead's books are amazing, but the covers for some of her books really don't convey that.

    Old follower. Our FF

  6. Congrats on being featured this week. I chose The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse.

  11. Congrats on being featured. New Follower. =] I get what you mean. This cover has no life to it. It is just a not so beautiful women with too much makeup on just standing there with a moon and a building behind her. I don't get it lol. Here is My FF

    Michael @ The Bookshelf Review

  12. Congrats Ladies! It is so exciting that you got featured! Do you feel like celebrities? lol Well I have to agree that out the last Georgina Kincaid book was the best and the cover was a let down.

  13. Congrats on being featured, Ladies! I know what you mean about the Georgina Kincaid series, love the books! The covers? Not so much!
    Thanks for stopping by! =D

  14. Congratulations on being this weeks feature :)

    I'd have to agree with you on that cover but this series is amazing.

  15. Congrats on being featured! It's funny that you picked this cover because I kind of think the same thing about Mead's Vampire Academy series! X)

  16. Congrats on the feature ladies!! Woooot *happy dances for the both of you* Now the world will be hit with AWESOMESAUCE! lol.

    Oh snaaap. I <3'd the Georgina Kincaid series ^_^ and I can't believe I forgot all about that damned cover.. *sigh* I think I need to go back and change my answers lmbo... The cover's weren't that bad. But when you pick up a series that scream SUCCUBUS you better damned well hope the covers are leaking with SEZZY!! The first four covers are okay, but the last two? Not so much. But I didn't really think the first two really went with what I picture for Georgina either. >.< Anywho, great answer!

  17. Great interview girls!! I agree with you about this series, it is awesome and I loved it. But if I hadn't read Richelle Meads VA series first I probably wouldn't have read it.

    Have a good weekend!

  22. Congrats on being featured! :)

    I have to admit that, that cover is kind of odd and not very appealing. >.<

  23. Old follower /congrats on being featured. 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. Visit/follow me at bethartfromtheheart.blogspot.com

  24. I just seen the above comment, and agree with the Stephanie Plum covers, they are a little colorful, and boring, I also hate the Vegas Vampire's covers, but didn't really care for the books much either, so didn't pick them.

  25. Congrats on being featured! I forgot about these coves! I wasn't too impressed with them either, but oh how I LOVE these books!

  26. The Vampire Academy covers aren't all that great either, but the books themselves are amazing. Goes to show you can't judge Richelle Mead's books by their covers!

    Sophie @ The Dreaming Reader

  27. Congrats on being featured! That's awesome :) And I actually agree, that cover did not do Georgie justice!

    I'm an old follower :) Here's my FF post so you can find out what I think about covers as well.

  35. That cover doesn't do anything for me. new follower. My friday http://jennreneeread.blogspot.com/2012/08/follow-friday-30-and-tgif-15.html

  36. It's hard to put a face on the cover, especially if it doesn't match the previous volumes. I can't count the number of times I've read a fantasy novel where I couldn't identify ANYONE from the artwork on the cover. :)

  45. Congratulations on being featured! I'm an old follower just stopping by ^^ I can understand that you don't like the cover.. It's not really attractive.


  46. I'm so happy that you were featured-- awesome! That cover is pretty horrific. You know, it's funny, that Georgina kind of reminds me of the one from Gossip Girl.

  48. Congrats on being featured. We picked the same book. I love this series, but the cover of Succubus Revealed didn't fit my image of Georgina Kincaid at all.

  51. Congrats on the feature! I have to say I hate it, too, when the characters in novels don't even resemble the models on the front. LOL

  52. Congrats on the feature! I see what you mean. Not as easy on the eyes but as long as it's a worthwhile read :) New follower!

  53. Congratulations on being the feature!! I don't think it's that bad, but there isn't really anything special going on :/ And I know...it always feels a bit negative when the cover model doesn't fit your imaginary standards for a character...

  57. Congratulations on being featured! I've heard great things about Richelle Mead's novels, especially her Vampire Academy novels. That cover is weird... her lips look overly red!
