Judge a book by its cover #1

by - Saturday, October 20, 2012


Wow, has it really been two months? To all of my blogger friends, I'm glad to say that it's good to be back! I have been disconnected from the book world for an agonizing period of time but it's nice to finally pick up a book without having to stress about what's coming out for test tomorrow. I missed the time when reading means escaping ~

Although life has stopped me from spending so much time blogging and reading, there are times where I yearned to sneak off and fulfill my passion! Today is one of the days.

I am not trying to create my own meme or thread, I just wanted to share several books that piqued my interest at first sight when I was browsing through my local bookstore today!

Today's theme : Coming of Age Teens 

Title :         Burn for Burn
Author :     Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian 
Published : September 18th 2012 




Lillia has never had any problems dealing with boys who like her. Not until this summer, when one went too far. No way will she let the same thing happen to her little sister.

Kat is tired of the rumours, the insults, the cruel jokes. It all goes back to one person– her ex-best friend– and she's ready to make her pay.

Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she's not the same girl anymore. And she's ready to prove it to him.

Three very different girls who want the same thing: sweet, sweet revenge. And they won't stop until they each had a taste.

Judge & Jury : Love the book cover, love the authors, love the blurb. I can't wait to get my hands on this book! Being a big fan of Jenny Han (you have to read her The Summer I Turned Pretty Series) and Siobhan Vivian's Not that Kind of Girl, I have great prospects for the story. Pleads Guilty!

Title :          This Is Not A Test
Author :      Courtney Summers
Published :  June 19th 2012 


It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up. As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, the motivations for survival change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life—and death—inside. When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?

Judge & Jury : It was love at first sight, the cover sings to me and filled my attention. Hauntingly beautiful and mysteriously attractive, it was one book cover that I could not resist. Courtney Summers has been known to leave a huge mental impact on the readers mind, with Some Girls Are and Fall For Anything, I doubt This Is Not A Test would be anything just. It's more than just a browse through book for sure!

Title : Whisper
Author : Chrissie Keighery 
Published : July 2012 


I'm always trying to figure out what's really going on. Always having to fill in the gaps, but never getting all the details. It's like trying to do a jigsaw when I don't even know what the picture is, and I'm missing one of the vital middle pieces.

How do you know if your friends are talking about you behind your back or if a boy likes you? They could act innocent, but you'd know from the rumours. You'd hear the whispers. But what if you couldn't hear those whispers anymore? What if everything you took for granted was gone? Being a teenager is hard enough.

But being a deaf teenager?

Whisper is a coming-of-age tale, about discovering who you are and where you fit in life. About friendships and first love and, most of all, learning to love the person you are.

Judge & Jury : Maybe it's just me? I normally aim for these kind of covers whenever I browse through book stands, I absolutely adore the color and the model! I love reading books about how teenagers cope with their disabilities and face the harsh world of reality, so I am quite looking forward to read this book myself, seemingly it has a good rating too! I have a feeling that I will not come out of this book in one piece. 

So it seems that I have to save more money for my second trip back to the bookstore, I definitely could not wait to grab those books and read them for the first time. I hope you enjoyed my random post for today and hopefully I will be back for more the next time I stop by a bookstore. 

Have a great day and keep reading!
