FF (60) & TGIF (43)

Follow Friday is an opportunity to discover and follow other book related blogs! Want to join? Check it out at Parajunkee.

This week's question feature is from
Hesperia Loves Books!

Q: Have you ever looked at book’s cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.

My Answer: 'I Am Number Four' by Pittacus Lore. I absolutely love this book, the story is fab etc, but the cover just doesn't grab me, it's quite plain and well boring really.

This Friday's Question: 
Promote An Author: Is there a particular author you wish got more recognition? 
Pick one author & tell us why we should read their work.

My Answer: Y S Lee

Y.S Lee is the author of 'The Agency' series, a Victorian Detective series. 


I love this series, it's so good and well written, the descriptions and imagery are fantastic, it really captures the world/era. Not many people seem to know about them, certainly not round my area. They deserve to be read more, they should be read more. 

Why not give them a go? :D

Also visit Y.S Lee's website here 


Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!

I haven't read anything by her so thanks for the recommendation :-) And I had the same thought about the cover for I AM Number 4 - a bit bland for such an exciting book.

Oh I agree. I hate that cover. I much prefer the movie tie in edition, with gorgeous Alex Pettyfer front and center :D

I Am Number Four is boring!!! They could have put a little more effort into that one.

I agree with you on that I Am Number Four cover! The one with Alex Pettyfer is WAY more encouraging!! Lol :) Nice choice though.
