Good Books /
Bad Covers is a new feature/weekly meme here at Bookish Wanderess. The idea
behind it is to say "Hey, I know this book has a really bad cover, but the
book itself is really good. You should read it!" So every monday I
will be choosing one book or book series that I read and really liked, but it
has a really bad cover, and I will talk about why that book deserves a chance
even if the cover is so bad that I wouldn't pick the book up in a bookstore
even if it was free. Everyone is welcome to join this meme, I just ask that you
link back to me in your post.
Hey Guys! It's monday again and of course
that means there is a new Good Books / Bad Covers post. This week I want to
talk about a book series that I started to read this year (2016), I have read
the first 3 books in this series and I really enjoyed them. It'sThe Fever seriesby Karen Marie Moning. It's an urban
fantasy series about faries that takes place in Irland, and I started to read
it because Riley talks about it in her booktube channel (RileyMarie1196) all
the time! Nonetheless, If I didn't know what this books are about, I would have
never looked at them in a bookstore. The old covers were ugly, and the
covers of the first and second book were not only ulgy, but also boring and they
said nothing about the story.
On the other hand, the new covers are
better, at least they are less ugly. Don't get me wrong, I still would pretty
much walk pass them in a bookstore, but if someone saw me reading this series I
would not feel embarrased about the covers (well, I wouldn't feel too
I can understand why someone, especialy if
the see the old covers, would not want to pick up this series, buthere are some reason to
ignore the covers and read the books:
- I don't know if it's because I love
slow-burn romances, but I'm obsessed with the romance in this story (which is
almost non-existent), because is the slowest slow-burn romance in history!
A.K.A it's fabulous! There's so much tension between the characters.
- I also love that the romance is not the
driving force of this book. It's quite different from what I expected but it's
- Mystery is a big component of this book
and that adds a lot to the story.
-It's completely addictive, you just can't
put it down.
- One thing that makes this series so
interesting is the setting: Irland. Getting to explore it through this books is
- The writting is really easy to get into
and goes really well with the story.
And that's it! If you haven't read these books because of
their covers, please do it!
I hope you enjoyed this post. If you make
a Good Books/ Bad Covers post, please let me know in the comments, I would love
to check it out!
