Top Ten Covers I Wish I Could Redesign

toptentuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s topic is Top Ten Covers I Wish I Could Redesign;  there are so many book covers that I really love but there are also ones that seem off for me.

redesign

  1. Bloodlines (Bloodlines #1) by Richelle Mead – I’ve been seeing this in most of the posts, and I agree. I just don’t understand the cover at all, there’s no art, they are just two people, doing nothing. LOL!
  2. The Dark Divine (The Dark Divine #1 by Bree Despain – I think those feet don’t match the story of the book, right?
  3. Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful #1) by Jamie McGuire – This cover confuses me a lot and I keep on staring at it for a long time. I don’t get it at all. I think the original cover, the butterfly inside a jar is much better.
  4. The Host (The Host #1) by Stephenie Meyer – The eye says it all. But the angle and the color of the face are definitely off. I think a full face would do, with a different one eye.
  5. The Madman’s Daughter (The Madman’s Daughter #1) by Megan Shepherd – I really do want to read this one but the cover scares me, it is creepy for me. The sepia effect should be changed, I guess.
  6. The Madness Underneath (Shades of London #2) by Maureen Johnson – This one is also included in those list of redesigned book covers after the first book.
  7. Requiem (Delirium #3) by Lauren Oliver – The covers of the Delirium series are gorgeous but I prefer the original cover of the first book, the one with the title only in a bluish green background. In this set, that cover is really creepy, the girl seems angry or something.
  8. Return to Paradise (Leaving Paradise #2) by Simone Elkeles – Definitely not a good edited cover. The girl and the boy are a bit graphic, they look like painted ones.
  9. Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) by Tahereh Mafi – I love the book and this cover is a good representation of Juliette. But of course, the new cover design that contains the eye is more creative.
  10. This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers – this is one of those covers that I don’t understand. LOL! I mean, what is the connection of the hair with the zombies??

Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far In 2013

toptentuesday2Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This is my first time to participate so I’m excited to share this list! I’ve read 67 books so far so it was hard for me to pick only ten books. LOL! Anyway, here’s my list:

toptenbooks

  1. Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer – I love Wolf and Scarlet! They are awesome characters!  I admire how the author created a perfect twist to the series and combined some of the fairy tale characters. This is my best book of the year so far! 🙂
  2. The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2) by Julie Kagawa  – Julie Kagawa is one of the exceptional writers and she really did a good job with this one, a fast-paced and action-packed sequel of the Blood of Eden, a dystopian-paranormal series! I love Zeke!
  3. Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare – This is my most anticipated book this year and it didn’t fail me. As you already know, I’m hopelessly in love with Jem, so my heart was breaking while reading it, but I’ve enjoyed every part of it. A perfect ending to the series!
  4.  The Iron Queen (The Iron Fey #3) by Julie Kagawa – I know I’m a bit late reading this series because I was hesitant after reading the first one, but this series grew on me and I’ve learned to love it. This third book is my most favorite so far.
  5. Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder – This is the very book I’ve read in verse and I loved it! It was very emotional, I cried a lot and I love how it was able to capture my heart.
  6. Faking It (Losing It #2) by Cora Carmack – I don’t have to explain much, but Cade is the perfect boyfriend!!! I promise that his own happy ever after is way so much better than the first book. 🙂
  7. Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin #2) by R.L. LaFevers – Beautifully written and superb plot, this one is definitely darker and bolder than Grave Mercy.
  8. Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley – This book has a special spot in my heart. I love it because of it’s complete package – funny characters, cool arts and inspiring poems. 🙂
  9. Spark (Elemental #2) by Brigid Kemmerer – I’ve been addicted to the Elemental series, it involves the power of elements and Gabriel’s story is my most favorite He controls fire and he’s literally hot! LOL!
  10. Because of Low (Sea Breeze #2) by Abbi Glines – I think this is the only book from the Sea Breeze series that I really like and that’s because of Marcus! I love him, maybe because he’s a true gentleman and definitely a good boy, and his story is the most wholesome. LOL! 🙂

 

That’s all!

How about you? What are your top reads so far this year?

Link me up so I can also stop by!

Waiting on Wednesday #1

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It features each blogger’s most anticipated books. This week, my pick is The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver.

“When Liza’s younger brother Patrick’s soul is stolen by the evil Spindlers, spider-like creatures who live underground, she knows she must set out on a heroic quest to the world Below to rescue it.”

Why I Can’t Wait:

Yeah, I’m definitely one of Lauren Oliver’s huge fan! And I love all her books! I saw her post about this new book coming in October and I’m really excited about it! I liked her first middle-aged book Liesl and Po, and I’m sure this new book of hers will capture again my young heart. ♥

Expected publication:

October 2nd 2012 by HarperCollins
