Cover Obsession #10 As Was Expected

Image
Cover Obsession is a feature here on BookPics. -I really don't know if anyone else does it as I do but I'm not trying to steal any other ideas out there- In which I tell you what new book covers I'm completely in love with, pinning for, drooling over, tearing-up over, going all OH CLOUD! on and all the other AMAZING-FANTASTIC-AWESOME-BOOKPIC-LY verbs and adjectives and adverbs you can think of that just simply aren't enough to describe how I feel towards said covers so,  I just go ahead and OBSESS over them :D -----------------------------------------------------------
Instead of rambling about the 2 covers I'm about to post here... I'll just repeat the tittle of the post... As Was Expected... These covers... ~sighs~ I'm BEYOND Obsessed.

I can't remember everything I did with the picture only that I overlaid it with a black-kind of border.
I love this quote, that's why I tried to adapt the picture to it, rather than the other way around. I wanted it to look like from the character's-quote- POV.

What books will be stalking YOUR shelves this week?

BookPics is Curious- What's your take?

I'm a really cover-lover kind of person.

If your book has an out-of-this-world kind of amazing cover, it is 99.9% true that somehow, someway, the book will end up in my shelves. -Remembering what my favorite genres are... always-

I also am picky in a very special way.
No, it doesn't mean that if the cover isn't good in the eyes I won't buy it. But it means that if I see similar covers repeatedly in a lot of different books by different authors I most likely be wary and then maybe, just maybe, just because of that... the possibilities of me buying the book will definitely be reduced... say like on a 60%... meaning... there's a 40% or less of a probability of me even trying to buy the book...

DON'T take this the wrong way... I've read some AMAZING out-of-this-world, kind of books with really sad covers, sad meaning not good looking or attractive at all... So I'm NOT saying that if a book cover isn't good you don't have to buy that... I AM NOT SAYIN…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This past saturday we held a father's day dinner at home... and my cousin got to see all my pretty books!! While showing her some I remember I saw Sarah Dessen's books and also remember having my little sister's headphones sitting right beside my laptop and I knew right there and then that I wanted to take a picture of them both! Meaning the book and the headphones.
Anyway... this is what came up with,

This week I'm obsessing with/over


Tell me a thing I wouldn't like about this cover??? Other than the fact that the font's color is a bit pale?? I still love it though, because it goes with the cover as a whole! I LOVE Kelley's YA books! LOVE THEM TO DEATH and their covers as well! It's amazing how beautiful and intriguing they can be and this one didn't fail... I…

Oh, you guys... I'm starting to get worried about certain packages that I'm still waiting to get in the mail :'( I really really hope they get here soon!!!
On other news, I'm making this post just after a HUGE dinner went down on my house... my sister's and I decided to throw a celebration here at home for all the dads on our most close family members... T_T my sis is almost a chef :'( so you can imagine what type of plates and desserts she wanted to AND made :D ~sigh~ My point is, that it was FUN! But tiresome, therefore there was NO way I was going to be able to make a vlog while I was looking like a tornado went and did it's thing with my hair : /  ANYWAYS...
This week I went to the bookstore and even though I ended up buying a couple of books I don't think I'll be going there anytime soon... T____…

-reread thoughts- If I Die by Rachel Vincent

Image
Argh.
Writing reviews and thoughts and stuff about my feelings for books while reading them is turning harder and harder...

But I can't help and repeat once again, how amazing this book was/is.

I've read this book more times than I care to admit.
And still...
My heart was broken earlier in the series BUT this book right here is the turning point for, let's just say. EVERYTHING.

I can't believe how in the world author Rachel Vincent came up with a story so extraordinarily original. This book kept me guessing and guessing. I had such a hard time trying not to read the finishing lines... I won the battle. Barely.

When I thought nothing worse could happen to Kay, it happened. When I thought her heart couldn't be any more broken, it was. When I thought the person who had sworn her-things-would keep-his/her-word, the person didn't.

I thought and thought and thought about so many bad things happening but never in my wildest imaginations would I have guessed what this…

time." Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead -VA #3-
I can't remember when I took the picture. But it was a trip I had to make because I was my grams and mom's driver :D  We went to this tourist place... they had a statue of some virgin there, but that's NOT what caught my attention. At all. What did completely amaze me, were ALL this plaques. At first I thought they were from gravestones …

-review- Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown

Image
-"I want you to play with her. Be nice. Show her things. Let her have a good time. Keep her out past dinner."-
Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown is one of those books that you pick up being all wary about them but...when read... You take a minute and wonder how in the clouds you ever doubted of reading it in the first place.

When I started reading the book I had only vaguely read the description, as I'm not such a fan of that. But there HAD to be a reason for me to request it on NG right?
Anyway.

Calder White was all kinds of creepy, scary but managing to be vulnerable and cocky. I loved his character! Every interaction he had with his sisters gave me the creeps. And talking about his sisters...
Why is it that every single time you let your guard down, is the one time that the enemy decides to strike? I've always wondered that. Maris was the one and only sister who managed to scare the pants out of me while also making me agree with her, even if she was sick and o…

Without my usual rambling, I present you->


Is there something not to obsess over?? ~I think this is also a cover reveal!~
I remember at the beginning I was actually a bit mad that they looked so much like the Fallen books covers...but now...along with a blogger whose review of book #1 has me pinning for it in a really unhealthy way... I say this are some of my favorite book covers of the…

MRP progress & status: -I read!! Even though I didn't make a HUGE advance on my reading, since I went off the pile yet again. I did finish reading Dark Awakening and even reviewed it! Thanks to Kristina for recommending moving the book higher on MRP.
I'm currently reading Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown. This is a review book, and I'm so very very glad that I'm liking it!!! I know now that I'll have the review up on monday! And if you want to get it, remember the book releases June 12 ~winkwink~
