So, this week's topic on Paper Hangover's Friday Fives is:
FIVE book covers you're currently lusting over.
I tend to go more on recommendations rather than the cover image. That being said, it took me about 45 seconds to find some books I am currently lusting over.
#1. Invincible summer. Because, let's face it: we all want what we can't have, and I am never, ever, going to have that bikini body. When my hair was straight I wanted it curly, when it got curly I wanted it straight.
I try to use this as an Oprah-like life lesson on being happy with what you have. Sometimes with success.
I hear the book is not necessarily what the cover might make you think... and I'll know soon because I'll be picking it up this WEEKEND from the Barnes and Noble where I ordered it. Then I hope to share it with one of you... so keep tuned.
# 2. Saltwater Vampires by Kirsty Eagar, because Nomes recommended it, and she has NEVER steered me wrong. Also because this cover is scary. I am fighting off a chill as I type. That's effective marketing.
3. Loser Queen, by Jodi Lynn Anderson because it just cracks me up. I want those little knit bunnies. I want to hold them. I want to squeeze them. I want them to love me back, and I want to know what they're doing here. It's cute, quirky, and kinda funny.
4. Lauren Oliver's Delirum. Honestly, I'd read her next book if the cover was ugly and boring. Thankfully it's this funky fresh graphical stunner of a cover. I love the robin's egg blue color, I love the font, and I am intrigued by the back image shining through. Win. Win. Win.
5. Ten miles past normal by Frances O'Roark Dowell.
You say: what an impractical spot for an electric guitar lesson.
I say: I want to know more about this character, and what makes her tick.
What covers are you lusting over?
