There's two different questions this week. I stuck with the one I liked the cover, but not the book.


Q: 
Best cover? What is the best cover of a book that you've read and didn't like?





I like some of Holly Black's other books and I really wanted to like Tithe, but the story just wasn't holding my interest. I remember sticking it out to something like page 150 and finally giving up.

  1. Hi, Cherie! Newest follower here :)
    I love Holly Black, when she's not writing about Faerie. Curse Workers was a favorite of mine. This, not so much. My FF is here http://fictionflaire.blogspot.in/2012/08/follow-friday.html

  5. Haven't read this book, but I do like the cover. The butterfly is gorgeous and the title font gives me a creepy feel. Too bad the story wasn't up to par.

    1. It was the font for the title and butterfly that made my pick up this book.

  7. This is not my favorite Holly Black series either. I liked the follow-ups better than the first.
