Judge a Book by It's cover #2Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Another random post!
I'm just full of excitement today because I took another trip to the bookstore and got myself a copy of Insurgent *doing the happy dance*, and I have also been inspired to create another Judge a Book by It's Cover post just because I saw some really gothic-ly alluring ones and I could wait to share them.
Today's Theme : Romancing the Undead
Title : Dearly Departed (Gone with the Respiration #1)
Author : Lia Habel
Published Date : September 29th 2011
Love can never die.
Love conquers all, so they say. But can Cupid’s arrow pierce the hearts of the living and the dead—or rather, the undead? Can a proper young Victorian lady find true love in the arms of a dashing zombie?
In Dearly, Departed, romance meets walking-dead thriller, spawning a madly imaginative novel of rip-roaring adventure, spine-tingling suspense, and macabre comedy that forever redefines the concept of undying love.
Judge & Jury : A cliche cover that somehow hypnotized me to read the blurb. I guess there's just something about zombies in suits.
Title : The Farm (The Farm #1)
Author : Emily McKay
Published Date : December 4th 2012
Life was different in the Before: before vampires began devouring humans in a swarm across America; before the surviving young people were rounded up and quarantined. These days, we know what those quarantines are—holding pens where human blood is turned into more food for the undead monsters, known as Ticks. Surrounded by electrical fences, most kids try to survive the Farms by turning on each other…
And when trust is a thing of the past, escape is nearly impossible.
Lily and her twin sister Mel have a plan. Though Mel can barely communicate, her autism helps her notice things no one else notices—like the portion of electrical fence that gets turned off every night. Getting across won’t be easy, but as Lily gathers what they need to escape, a familiar face appears out of nowhere, offering to help…
Carter was a schoolmate of Lily’s in the Before. Managing to evade capture until now, he has valuable knowledge of the outside world. But like everyone on the Farm, Carter has his own agenda, and he knows that behind the Ticks is an even more dangerous threat to the human race...
Judge & Jury : I just love the hauntingly depressing aura that the cover emanates, seeming to be a promising read! The blurb is just unique and creative, and this is a story that I would love to delve into.
It seems the undead has gained quite a popularity these days!
