Feature & Follow Friday #3

First things first…what is the Feature & Follow Blog Hop? Well, it’s a weekly meme hosted by Rachel @ Parajunkee and Alison @ Alison Can Read. The meme helps to launch new book bloggers and also makes it easy for quite a few already established (and new!) bloggers to get together once a week and go on a commenting-frenzy. Make new friends, get in touch with old ones…it’s a win/win for everyone!

  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
  3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say “hi” in your comments and that they are now following you.
  5. If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
  6. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don’t just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don’t say “HI”
  7. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love…and the followers
This week’s features are:  Alyssa @ Hesperia Loves Books & Britta @ Novel Days
The question is:

Have you ever looked at a book’s cover and thought, This is going to be horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.

Hrm. I think….
Book Cover of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte Yes, definitely Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. I don’t think any of the covers for this book are very lovely.  In fact, most of them are very “blah”.  The story, though, is fantastic and I think it’s one everyone should read.  So go get it! :)

    New follower thanks to FF :)

    • Welcome to Literary Obsession, Jenni! :) Thanks for stopping by, and I’ve hopped over to your place as well to return the follow. Have a great weekend.

  2. Hopping through. I agree that Jane Eyre – and most classic – book covers are very bland.

  3. Don’t like the cover either although I’ve never read anything by Jane Eyre. Following Linky, goodreads, and facebook.

  4. I don’t care for the cover, but I would probably never touch it because I’m not a fan of classics. Old follower :)

    • Good to see you here again, Jessi! I popped over to your place to leave a comment for you. Happy weekend and all that good stuff.

      Just as an FYI – Jane Eyre is epic and awesome. It doesn’t really read like a classic…in that it’s not all stuffy and boring. It’s just a lovely romantic tale. I think you should give it a try!

  5. This really is an awful cover for this book not good at all, new follower, here’s mine

  6. I really don’t like this cover either. I always find I have general dislike when it comes to covers for classics, actually; the only classic cover that I’ve liked is one for The Little Princess.

  7. My copy of Jane Eyre doesn’t have a very nice cover either but it’s definitely one of my favorite stories. Happy Friday!

  10. I just wanted to say hi! I found your blog through BBPOC. I agree with the Jane Eyre covers – they’re normally not that wonderful. But the book is great! I’m looking forward to reading more from you! New Follower!

    • Hi there, Andrea! Thanks for stopping by :)

      Jane Eyre is definitely great – not so much its various covers, though. Fortunately, I learned not to judge a book by its cover a long time ago. ;)

      Unfortunately, I do have a weakness for pretty covers. I’m drawn to them, and disappointed if the story inside isn’t as beautiful.
