Friday Fun (5)

Posted August 31, 2012 in Uncategorized / 8 Comments

Just a heads up, I won’t be posting next weekend probably at all.  I am going on a much needed vacation with my boyfriend to Rehoboth Beach, since he has a rare Friday off!

There are actually 2 different questions this week, a snafu over there I believe, but more fun for us!:

Best Cover?  What is the best cover of a book you’ve read and loved?

The Iron Fey series covers are the most gorgeous covers.  I really love them soooooo much.  They are just perfection in my opinion.  Everything you want in a cover: bright colors, pretty font, swirly things, pretty girl, hot guys. Seeeeeeee:


Absolutely. Beautiful.
Best Cover?  What is the best cover of a book you’ve read and didn’t like?

The Mortal Instruments series.  I’m not a huge TMI fan.  I’ve read all the books because, well, once I start a series I usually continue on, no matter if I like it or not.  But I do love the covers of these books.  I think they’re really cool looking.  Especially City of Lost Souls.  That cover is gorgeous.  The insides,  not so much.

 The Friday 56 (5)

 The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice.  The rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you.
*Post it.

Then hop over to her page and link up!

 This week’s book is:

Matched (Matched, #1)Matched
Series: Matched, #1
Author: Ally Condie


The quote:
“‘I talked with Patrick and Aida Markham,’ he said.  ‘ I though you’d want to know.  The boy is an orphan.  He’s from the Outer Provinces.’
‘He is?’  My mother’s voice held a note of concern.  The Outer Provinces are on the geographic fringe of the Society where life is harder and wilder.”

The first book in the Matched series.  Everyone seems to be enjoying and so far I am too.  I absolutely LOVE dystopian novels.  I think I can say, for certain, that dystopian is officially my favorite genre.  There’s just something about them.  I think it’s that I can usually imagine what happens in them, actually happening.  Like this book, or Delirium.

TGIF (6)
TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger @ GReads! Every week she asks a fun question to answer and you can recap what you’ve been up to the past week!
NOTE:  Ginger has announced that this will be the last TGIF until further notice.  You can read more here: Announcement 
I’m really sad because I love this meme!  But I understand wanting to focus on school.  I should be doing that myself.

This week’s question is:

Choose Your Next Read: How do you go about choosing
what you read next? Do you have a schedule you follow, or do you read whatever makes you happy at the moment?

Lately, I’ve been following my TBR list.  I have a bunch of books checked out from the library, so I’m going by due date on those, and I have a lot of review copies from NetGalley I need to get to, so those will be next.  Then, I’m taking a break from the library and NetGalley (unless something really good pops up like when The Lost Prince appeared), and read the book on my IRL TBR shelves on my bookshelf.  There are two of them!  It’s crazy.  And I just bought more.  But otherwise I don’t usually have a set way of picking.  Just whatever calls to me in the moment.  Or what book an author has given me to review.

Until Next Time

  1. Hahaha this is the opposite for me =) I wasn’t a huge fan of the Iron Fey series (I only read the first book) but adore the Mortal Instruments series. Jace completely sucked me in!

  2. I love the Iron Fey books. I’ve actually only read the first one! I believe that a boxed set is coming out soon so hopefully I’ll just buy that! 😀 I can’t wait to read more with Meghan and Ash.
