I've decided to participate in this sweet little cover meme ^_^ My link is hosted by Kayla @ Kismet Kayla
It's been awhile since I've done some cover appreciation. And I also can't help but include an opposition cover...one that I don't love so much...
Sever by Lauren DeStefano (Chemical Garden #3) Goodreads
Thank you, Giselle, for bringing this into my interest through Facebook ^^:
This HAS to be my favourite cover in the entire series!!! Don't get me wrong; I think the first 2 covers were okay, and I really love the circle-y and rectangle-y and geometrical-y design of them all. But this one...I don't know...it seems to hold a different kind of beauty. Like, I feel like there is hope (I haven't read the second book yet, by the way.) in the storyline, while the other two covers were beautiful, but gives off a-a-a wilted sort of feeling (which I don't respond well too -blush). Anyhow, the colours of it, the model, and the props in the background all come together awfully nicely *-* -admires-
By the way, the topic of covers has put an unpleasant cover into my head. I shall get it out once and for all, if you all don't mind... Has any of you seen this cover?
The curious incident of the dog in the night-time by Mark Haddon Goodreads
Grade 9 Vivi hated this cover. Just finished Grade 11 Vivi also hates this cover. Isn't it funny how all (well, almost all) the books they make you read in school are quite well written, but you can never truly bring yourself to enjoy it?! All the time wasted scribbling out that massively long title on numerous assignments and essay write-ups.
Besides the plainness and the colour (it's even worse in real life, trust me.), it's the dog. Yes, the upside down dog. Mind you, that dog isn't a 2D dog printed on the cover. No, it's a cut-out on the cover itself. Meaning even though the books were brand new at the beginning of the school year, by the end, all of the copies had such destroyed upside-down-dogs, you couldn't even make out the distorted shape.
I take special pride into caring well for my books. I suffered because even though I was SO careful with my copy, at the end of the year, my upside-down-dog also lost its paper tail and one of its ridiculously-skinny legs. And every time I took this book (carefully) out of my backpack, I had to turn it around and around for at least 3 full 360° turns because the upside-down-dog was just SO DARN CONFUSING for the orientation.
.. that's it for me today ^_^ I'm sorry for not being around. I've been SO busy studying for my G1 test; my bombing skills are lame, aren't they. If the book-blogging community ever had a book-review-bombing tournament, I wouldn't even make it past the preliminary round.
P.S. Canada Day weekend is coming up! Happy Canada Day to you all~ ❤
