Friday Five (3) and Weekly Recap

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Welcome to Friday Five! This new meme is run by the writers at Paper Hangover. Each week they give us a blogging prompt where we make a list about five things related to books and/or writing.

This week's topic is "FIVE book covers you're currently lusting over."

I first saw this over at Ruby's Reads and I think it is so amazing. I love the little shot of purple and the way the center image seems to float above the black background. GORGEOUS.

The squeeeeequel! Otherwise known as GIMMEGIMMEGIMMEGIMME.

I don't know or even care what this book is about. I seriously love this image so much I want to frame it and hang it on my wall.

I have a soft spot for underwater photography. I love the weightlessness of it - it's so haunting and feels like you've captured this slow motion moment in time. Love. It.

The simplicity here wins. I love the deathly pallor to the model's skin and the huge sugar-crusted lips, perfectly complemented by the funky font. Full of win!

What covers are you lusting over?

My weekly recap is inspired by the phenomenally talented, kind and generous Small Review. If you are not already following her, you are really missing out. Also, have I mentioned how much I love Cool Text? They're the folks that allow me to make these cool (and simple) text buttons - for FREE!

If you're a first time visitor, or just didn't get the chance to stop by this week, here's what you missed:

Pretty much! I actually did an out loud "Yeah!! *fist pump*" last night while reading one of the scenes (hint for when you read it: EARS) Gabi is so totally awesome!

I'm not really even all that into reading The Carrier of the Mark, but I want to because of that cover. It's the smokey blue tendril things. They're so pretty!
