Follow Friday - Worst Cover


Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
Q: Worst cover? What is the worst cover of a book that you've read and loved?
Does anyone else feel like the same books always come up in their follow friday answers?  I suppose because it's often best and worst, plus covers have been mentioned more than once. This is literally the third time that I've chosen this book (that should say something about how strongly I feel about it).  But once again, I must go with The Raging Quiet (read my review here).  It's not my typical read, more romantic than what I choose, but came highly recommended from trusted friends.  The book did not disappoint.  I believe it is sadly out of print (though looking at Amazon you can buy it used or even new if you're willing to shell out some BIG bucks).


The Raging Quiet is a wonderful book, built on believable characters that you really root for. It's about friendship that becomes love and understanding those who are different than you.  Honestly I cannot recommend this book enough.  The cover is hideously juvenile and does not do the book justice.

That cover certainly doesn't do that title justice.

Hey thanks for coming by :) When I blogged more, I did find that I had a couple of repeats for my answers. Mainly when there were like "best" questions and I'd be all like "NARNIA OF COURSE!"

OH MY GOSH! I remember picking this book up when it was available at my library like...10 years ago! Now that it's out of print, I'm sad I never finished it. :(
