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.


Yes, recently I read a book called "Pretty Flamingo" by Perry Martin.  Here is the cover of that novel.

When I looked at the cover, I didn't exactly think its horrible.  But,  I thought it might not be interesting enough for me.  When I finished this book, I was greatly surprised, that I mailed the author separately and told how I felt about this book. 

This novel is a romance novel..and it caused such pain, loss and hope, that I felt mad.  It was about a beautiful love shared between two teens..they lose everything when they think they are the two happiest souls in the world.   It was heart-wrenching..the loss those kids had.  I never thought that I would list these type of romances as my favorites..but here I am, doing that.

So, you have any such book?

Follow me and comment below, so that I can follow you back!  Thanks for stopping by and happy weekend to everyone!


  1. Sounds like a very heart-wrenching read. The cover isn't bad, like you said, but it does lack something. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and for following my blog/dropping by! I'm a new follower :)

  2. Hopping through. Glad this was a good book. Anything with a flamingo on the cover would make me laugh.

  3. Oh man, that cover is terrible. I would definitely not even consider reading that book if the decision was based solely on the cover. Lol.

    Check out my Follow Friday.

  4. Horrible! LOL I'm following through GFC, Linky, google+ and facebook.

  5. Wow. Perhaps not completely horrible, but definitely thrown together haphazardly! I've not heard of this one, I may have to check it out. Happy Friday :)

  6. I agree with you that the cover just misses that special something that insists that I'll love the book even before I crack it open. It sounds like a really lovely tale. I'm not sure I'm in the mood for heartache right now, but one day when I am, I'll remember this book. Thanks!

  7. Hi there,

    Yes this is an interesting cover with a flamingo, hmmm. Glad you enjoyed the book, this is what is important.

    New follower:D


  8. Hi there :) just hopping through, old follower.
    Well the title might have "pretty" in it but the cover is anything but!

    Here is my choice...

  9. yeah, that cover looks like a bad case of photoshopping:) Romance covers can be a little dicey sometimes I think:) Glad you enjoyed the book though! Thanks for dropping by earlier, new follower!

  10. That cover is kind of weird. It sounds painful, so it's probably not for me, but I'm glad you loved it.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF. Following you via Linky.
    Happy Friday!

  11. I'm now wondering what the flamingo has to do with heart wrenching romance. Interesting.

    Happy hopping and thanks for stopping by.

  12. Wow, that's such an interesting cover. I'd probably be drawn to it, for that reason alone, whether or not it had anything to do with the story the book was telling. Plus, I love these kind of romance stories, where there's more than just romance. So, fantastic pick. I'm definitely adding this to my tbr list. :)

  13. Well, huh. I'm partial to flamingos but wow. I see what they were going for but can't say I'm loving it either. I don't think I'd ever pick it up just going from the cover!

    Thanks for dropping by earlier!

    I'm a new follower :)

  14. That cover is really unique in my experience, because it has lots of individual elements that could work, but they're totally jumbled together. Thanks for stopping by my post; new follower!

  15. I agree, I saw this cover and wasn't really the biggest fan of it.

    New follower!
    Stop by my blog sometime! :)

  16. Hi, that cover is pretty unusual! New follower. Here's my FF link:

  17. I probably would have picked up this book because of the flamingo on it. You don't see them very often. Thanks for stopping by my FF. Following back. Happy Reading!

  18. Yeah, I definitely don't think I would have picked up that book. At least you really enjoyed it! I love it when a book does that. When it surprises you!

  19. I'm always sad when I judge a book by its cover, but really, it's the first thing that catches my attention. I'm glad you read it and liked it!

    Following you back <3
