Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison can read. Each week participants are given a prompt. This week's is:
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.
The first book that came to mind when I read that question was Lord of the Fading Lands by C.L. Wilson.
It might just be me, but to my eyes that cover looks so darn corny! Purple and misty and sparkly... It's one of the worst cases of 'inspired' cover art that I've ever come across. I have no idea why I bought the book... I think I looked past the cover art when people kept insisting that it was a really romantic fantasy. Well, obviously, my cover art bias didn't go away entirely as I went into the book fully expecting to give it 1 star... but in the end I gave it 3, so I suppose this book counts as one I enjoyed a lot more than I'd expected to based solely on the cover.
Have a great weekend and happy hopping!
