Follow Friday | 07

Follow Friday, or Feature & Follow, is a meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The premise is for bloggers to get to know more about other bloggers, and to keep in touch with each other while also discovering new blogs. This week's question:



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


Hmmm....this is a hard one. Often, if I read a book I love that is either on my Kindle or checked out from the library, then I have to buy a physical copy for myself. When that happens, I usually look online for the version with the best cover. This is harder for good books that have nothing but ugly covers. 

But one really ugly cover that immediately comes to mind is the cover for my copy of Intensity by Dean Koontz:


Doesn't that cover make you feel like having an epileptic seizure? I mean, sure, the cover fits the name, but why?! I love this book - it's probably the scariest, most thrilling story I've ever read, but I just hate seeing that cover on my shelf.

How about you?
