Follow Friday #40


Happy Friday everyone!
Yes, it’s that time of week again where bloggers unite to participate in the Follow Friday venture. The idea behind #FF is to promote traffic to your own blog, make new friends with other like-minded bloggers and discuss new and interesting topics each week.
Participating is simple. First you need to follow my blog because I’m totally awesome, then you can follow me on Twitter @kristyberridge (actually you don’t have to do this, it’s wishful thinking), but do follow my blog or assassins will get you …
Then you must follow our illustrious hosts Rachel of http://www.parajunkee.com/ and Alison of http://www.alisoncanread.com/ If you want more details on how to enter your own blog in the follow and hop, all directions are on their webpages
Now, once you’ve followed, check out my answer to this week’s questions and don’t forget to leave a comment so I can do the right thing and follow you back!

This week's question: Worst cover? What is the worst cover of a book that you've read and loved?

My answer: This is easy - The bloody Twilight saga. I mean seriously, what the hell does a hand holding an apple have to do with Twilight (despite one fleeting moment where Edward kicks the crap out of one by the salad bar in the movie)? And for New Moon's book cover - a droopy flower? Then we have a cheap ass ribbon for Eclipse and chess pieces for Breaking Dawn.
I still shake my head at those covers - talk about a lazy graphic designer.

Anyway, since you're all over here nodding your heads in agreement, why don't you check out the competition I have running at the moment? Follow this link (click here) and it will take you to my "Damned good Giveaway". If you're not keen on the whole entering via photography, that is fine, you can still enter via raffle-copter and be in the chance to win, it's easy as!

Happy Friday!

  2. They looked like one of those common stock images. I was hesitant to pick Twilight up because of it (before it became popular). New Follower.

  3. I completely agree! I hated those covers, I remember seeing those books in the store before it was a movie and thinking how ugly and unappealing they were lol. Old follower :)
