Feature and Follow Friday (10)


Feature and Follow Friday is hosted over at Parajunkee and Allison Can Read. This week's question:


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



I... do not know who made this decision. The hardcover copy of Leviathan has such a beautiful cover but they removed it for the paperback so that the first could match the models on the second and third books. If you ask me, the second and third should have been more like the first.
I also have no idea where Alek got a pilot's cap/goggles; I'm pretty sure he's not wearing anything like it in any of the book's illustrations. Go figure.
For reference, here was the original cover:

  3. Both are appropriately steampunk-y so yeah, why change the cover? I hate cover changes in the middle of a trilogy/series.

    Have a good weekend!

  5. new follower through GFC as lucyatmax...no pic. Please visit/follow me at bethartfromtheheart.blogspot.com . My answer to the ? 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.
    Hugs and have a great weekend!

  9. Umm, for someone who hasn't read this book, I daresay that the covers aren't all that bad.

  14. I like the original cover much better as well! You can definitely tell that it's steampunk by the original cover. I should really check this series out, I absolutely loved Uglies & Pretties! I have yet to read Specials & Extras. Scott Westerfeld is absolutely awesome. :)
