This week my favourite cover is:

Silver Moon by Rebecca A. Rogers
For seventeen-year-old Candra Lowell, senior year is supposed to be the time of her life. It’s not supposed to include being shipped off to her aunt and uncle’s house for ‘her own good’. Whatever that means. There’s only bad news from this experience—when she learns she’ll go from human to werewolf in a few months. Complete with an inherited unique power.

At her aunt and uncle’s house, Candra is plagued with nightmares of a whispering forest and glowing eyes, and a shadowy figure, who issues a warning—she needs to leave town. Candra tries to dismiss the haunting images, but when the shadowy figure appears outside of her home, Candra realizes she should’ve obeyed.

Candra learns the meaning of the stalker’s warnings when she discovers she’s the new favorite target of a rival pack. She isn’t just a werewolf—she’s a werewolf in the middle of a feud that makes the Montagues and Capulets look like best friends. She’s also made a mess of things by falling for her sworn enemy. Worse, the rival pack wants the power Candra will receive on her eighteenth birthday. To protect her family and friends, Candra can’t run or hide; she must face her foes, even if it means death.

I like forests. I think they’re pretty, interesting and peaceful.

This forest looks a little scary but at the same time I just love the look of it. The light that shines through the trees is eerily cool.

Oh my god those eye lashes! They’re so long!

I like this cover because it is another pretty cover. The girls make up looks cool, her hair is dead straight which is hard to get if your hair isn’t naturally straight and the rose is a nice touch.

The reason I was drawn to this cover was purely because I thought it was pretty. And I want those eyelashes.

This week my favourite cover is:

One Pink Line by Dina Silver
Can the love of a lifetime be forever changed by one pink line? Dina Silver’s tender, absorbing novel, One Pink Line, is the warmhearted, wry story of love, loss and family, as seen through the prism of one singular, spirited young couple who find themselves in a predicament that changes the course of their lives, and those closest to them. With heart, humor and compassion, this debut work of women’s fiction is certain to stir anyone who relishes a good laugh, can stand a good cry, and, above all believes in the redemptive power of love.

This unique, contemporary story gives readers a dual perspective. Sydney Shephard, a sweet-tempered, strong-natured college senior is young, in love with an exceptional man, and unexpectedly pregnant. Faced with a child she never planned for, she is forced to relay this news to her neurotic mother, relinquish her youth, and risk losing the love of her life. Then there’s Grace, a daughter, who believed she was a product of this great love, grows to realize her existence is not what she assumed, and is left with profound and puzzling questions about who she really is.

Spanning generations and every imaginable emotion, One Pink Line reveals how two points of view can be dramatically at odds, and perhaps ultimately reconciled. Simultaneously deeply felt and lighthearted, One Pink Line deftly mines how the choices we make are able to alter so many lives, and how doing the right thing and living honestly can bring unexpected, hard-won happiness. It’s a must-read for anyone who relishes a great love story, absorbing characters, and plenty of laughs along the way.

I’m not that big a fan of pink. But all this pink draws me to this cover. It makes my girl-y side come out I believe.

The ball of yarn or string shaped into a heart is super cute (Super cute? I have never said super cute before…) but it is.

The font of the title does look a little blocky and boring, but it actually suits the cover well therefore making it look un-boring.

This cover is just cute and girly and cool and I like it like that.

This week my favourite cover is:

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she’ll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters’ laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything – including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?

This cover is eerily pretty.

The model looks kind of creepy with her purple grey hair and amber, yellow eyes. But I think I find it so creepy because of the flowers, they just add that touch. The red looks like blood and whatever flower it is just gives off this dark feeling. I could be making that up, but I see it.

I like the glittery make-up on the girl, it is rather pretty. The font blends in well and is pretty.

So for some reason I just think this cover is really pretty. Creepy, but pretty.

This week my favourite cover is:

Becoming by Raine Thomas
Every three years, Amber Hopkins explodes. Okay, not a blown-to-smithereens explosion, but whatever it is always hurts like hell and leaves her life a shambles. She’s already worked her way through five foster placements, and she’s doing whatever she can to avoid getting blasted into a sixth.

As her eighteenth birthday approaches and she feels the strange and powerful energy building, disaster looms. When the inevitable explosion occurs, her life gets its biggest shakeup yet. She’ll not only learn how her fellow foster and best friend, Gabriel, really feels about her, but she’ll discover that she isn’t really without family.

To top it all off, she’ll finally find out why she’s having the power surges: she isn’t entirely human.

Amber must Become, transitioning to another plane of existence and risking the loss of the most important relationship she’s ever had. Her choice will impact the future of an entire race of beings, and will pit her against an enemy that will prey upon her doubt to try and take her very life.

Kind of makes the explosions now seem like a cakewalk.

Something about this cover grabs my attention.

I like the amber coloured eye and the blue flame on the girl.
The girl is pretty.
Her hair looks cute in the curls.

There’s something that makes me like this cover yet at the same time it is a rather plain cover. It could be because it is plain and that is why I like it. Although the font is blocky and boring and the black just looks weird.

Still the actual plot sounds pretty cool!

This week my favourite cover is:

Hush Money by Susan Bischoff
They call their abilities Talents, and that’s what they call themselves as well. Talents are people born with supernatural powers, feared by the population at large. Possession of an “unregistered ability” has become illegal, and those who are discovered are forcibly removed to government-run research facilities. For Talents, keeping their secret is the most important thing in their lives. For some, that need for secrecy begins to define who they are.

That’s how it is for Joss, a high school girl who does everything in her power to go unnoticed. She’s incredibly bright, but strives to maintain grades that are good yet not too good. She doesn’t participate in school activities, keeps quiet in class, eats by herself. Despite her longtime crush on Dylan, she wouldn’t even think about trying to talk to him. Joss doesn’t make friends of any kind, because friends can draw attention, friends can make you slip up, friends can make things complicated.

When new girl, Kat, steps in to rescue Joss from an uncomfortable situation with Marco, the class jerk, she doesn’t realize what she’s getting into, and it blows up in her face. Joss finds herself torn between a desire to do the right thing, to find some way to help a girl who was kind to her; and her need to mind her own business and fade into. For the first time, Joss begins to question the way she operates, and starts to long for connections with other people–especially a connection with Dylan, who’s finally starting to talk to her.

But what’s up with Dylan’s sudden interest? As Marco’s best friend, can he be trusted at all?

It’s bad enough when a girl’s got to worry about friends, boys, over-protective dads, and shoes that pinch, but when you throw in blackmail, government agents with guns, and really annoying little sisters…that’s just about too much to handle, even for a girl with an ass-kicking superpower.

 —————————————————————————————————————
What a long summary. But I love the sound of this story so it was worth reading it!

The reason I love this cover so much I think is a mixture of the right colours, the pretty model, the pretty font and the pretty decorative finishing touches.

I think I just said everything that I love about this cover. Except for the models eyes. That’s what caught my attention. Then I noticed all the little bits and pieces after.

The title seems weird though. The summary doesn’t quite fit it. Perhaps once I read the story I will find out what it means.

Ember by Madison Daniel
Love never dies…but it can kill.

Ember is the story of Max Valentine, a teenager with secret abilities and many inner demons. His life revolves around music and his love for it. When his father dies he seeks answers with his last living relative, his fathers brother Frank. Frank lives on the island of Maui and eagerly takes Max in as his own. Max soon learns that healing his past will be more difficult than he could have ever believed. Two major complications will tempt and torment him as he tries to make sense of his abilities.

The first temptation comes in the form of a mysterious island girl. Asia Lyn Michaels is rich, spoiled, angry and beautiful. Her path crosses with Max on the beach one afternoon, forever changing both of their lives. Max saves her life and she discovers his secret. From that moment on they are connected, no matter how much they fight it.

The second temptation will test Max’s very soul. Samantha Ann Summers is sweet, artistic, smart and confident. She will help Max find his smile again and maybe even heal his past mistakes. She is possibly his soul mate and Max will fight that with every fiber of his being.

Max’s temper and indecision with the girls will send in motion events that will cost him dearly. He will test the limits of his powers and the new relationship with his protective uncle. He will gain a powerful love and lose another.

The cover! Wow. I love it! What beautiful art. I just think this is so well done. The fire looks like it’s breathing the hands. I can’t stop staring at it. It’s captivated me.

Hmm the summary does sound intriguing, I’m not sure if this type of storyline is really my thing but perhaps I’ll give this a go?

This week my favourite cover is:

Awakening by Karice Bolton
Alone in snowy, remote Whistler village, Ana tries to build a new life since losing her parents. With a cozy condo, a sweet-faced bulldog and an evening job to leave the days free for the slopes, life slips into a great routine. If only she could shake the guilt for not remembering anything about her parents and banish the night terrors that haunt her every dream.

On a whim, Ana goes out with Athen, a guy she’s just met in the Grizzly Pub… The only problem is that she feels like she already knows him.

Within 48 hours of meeting Athen and his family, Ana’s world implodes. She falls for Athen quickly and before she knows it, a past life begins to resurface. As thrilling as the revelations appear at first, she fights against the chilling information that Athen is from the underworld. Soon she begins to struggle as her own supernatural gifts are slowly unveiled, and she realizes that the nightmares she’s been having might be premonitions and not dreams at all.

It is up to Ana to decipher between fact and fiction before it is too late, and her new love, Athen, follows in her same fate – one that is lost between two worlds.

I find this cover just beautiful. It’s probably all the white. And the pretty wings. Oh and the pretty dress! Like I’ve said before I’m a sucker for pretty.

I don’t like the font though, it looks weird, or maybe amateurish is what I mean? Which is fine. It’s not going to be a deal breaker for someone that wants to read this book. Unless they judge the book purely by it’s cover and don’t like the font… Which is what I’m doing right now. But I’m not judging the content by the cover!

The story does sound interesting but not one that makes me want to read it straight away.
