Follow Friday

Feature and Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer! This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. This weeks question is:

Q: Worst cover? What is the worst cover of a book that you've read and loved?.

This is really hard.  There have been a lot of so so covers, but I think the one that I felt least portrayed the book is Gone by Michael Grant.  The US/Canadian covers don't give any real hint of what is going on inside the book, nor do any of the sequels.  I absolutely love the series, and the covers have constantly disappointed me.  Especially when the UK covers are so stark and have such a WoW factor - although they don't convey what the books are about either, come to think of it.  What do you think? Which do you prefer, UK on left - US on right?
