Follow Me Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Check out their blogs and join in the weekly meme fun!



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




My first impression of the book.

Childish.

Truthfully, I was hesitant to read the book because of the cover, and the obviously-very-kiddish title. I remembered my last 'kiddish' book was Captain Underpants before I moved on to Teenager's Dreamland. Back to the cover, it looked something cut straight out of a fourth grader storybook, despite how thick it was. However, I should have known not to judge a book by it's cover, ever.

I was pleasantly surprised at how funny the story was, and how carefree and vibrant the characters were! I initially planned to just read  a few pages into the story, before I knew it, I was in too deep. I had the best laugh and best cries, until today I still remembered how the book had got me excited.

I.Love.It.

  4. The cover looks very bland and childlike, I wouldn't have thought it would be as good as you described.
