TGIF - Feature & Follow Friday

Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that is designed to provide some much-appreciated exposure to the bloggers participating, and to expand their following. Hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, each of whom feature a chosen blog for the week, it's an interesting way to get to know one another.

Question of the Week: Activity! Dream cast your current read.

I just finished reading Strindberg's Star, and since it reminded me so much of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,  I couldn't help but see a mix of two movie adaptions, with Daniel Craig in the lead role (from the American remake) and Noomi Rapace in the supporting role (from the original).

Parajunkee also hosts a Social Hop for Facebook and Twitter, which I've taken part in the past two weeks. So, if you're one of those people who aren't on Blogger, or who just don't like Google Friend Connect, it's a great way to keep in touch and follow one another.

TGIF is another blog hop designed to provide much-appreciated exposure to the bloggers participating, and to expand their following. Hosted by GReads, it's an interesting way to recap the week, pose a question, and find some exposure with a different audience.


Question of the Week: 
Show Me Your Cover - What are some of the worst book covers, but hold some of the best stories inside? Don't be embarrassed, show us your cover!

I can't think of any recent reads that had absolutely horrible covers, but I've always thought Dean Koontz could definitely benefit from a bit more thought and attention in creating shelf appeal:

  1. I agree. Dean Koontz covers are really bland especially in light of the contents of the books.

    Here's my Follow Friday. Stop by if you get a chance.

  2. I LOVE Koontz but sadly have to agree with you - his covers are usually very generic, and do nothing to show that there is a vibrant story waiting in the pages.

  6. those coverss are pretty boring. i like when an author has a generally uniform feel to their book covers, even if the books are not at all related. ~dixie

  8. Horror covers are often really awful--just huge text and some sort of door or cobweb on the front!
