Lusting for Covers (20)


Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers.

Here's what you do:

1- Take the graphic (left) to use on your post. Remember to give credit to the original host (TBQ).

2- Choose your own book cover that you've fallen in "lust" with in the past week. It can be new, old, a reprint, or even a book that is not yet out-- it's all up to you! If you find a cover that catches your eye, then showcase it on your blog, and let others see the pretty covers out there.

3- Copy the direct link to your own L4C post into the comment section on my post (when in doubt, use this link and then scroll down to find the post), and allow others to come and see what you picked!
(OPTIONAL):

4- Besides posting the picture of the book cover you chose, it's nice to provide the book summary, title, author, or a website link for the book. It's not required, but it can help you readers' to add more books to their own list! A brief "Why I choose this cover" is also appreciated, but not required.


NOTE: PLEASE link back to my blog (http://tbqspersonalbookpalace.blogspot.com) somewhere in your post, letting viewers know that it is my meme, not something you are trying to call your own. Failing to do so, with the intent of actually calling this your own work, will result in trouble! I hate threatening, but really, is it so hard to post a link that says "This meme is hosted by TBQ."? Link love is great, and actually quite easy-- please use it!

Here's my candidate for the week:

Lady Isabella's Scandalous Marriage
Author: Jennifer Ashley
Publisher/Publication Date: Berkley (July 6, 2010) 
Summary (Amazon):
Lady Isabella Scranton scandalized London by leaving her husband, notorious artist Lord Mac Mackenzie, after only three turbulent years of marriage. But Mac has a few tricks to get the Lady back in his life, and more importantly, back into his bed.
Why?
First off, I just finished the first book in this series, The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie, today and I have only one word for it--- AMAZING (5 stars)! Now, while I am anxious to read the sequel (LISM), I do have to point out that I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this very book (courtesy of Night Owl Reviews, thanks again!) and it is currently sitting on my desk, waiting to be picked up. I plan on starting it today, and I hope it is as spectactular, if not more so, than TMLIM! So while I do not have to wait until July to read it like the rest of you (and for that, I am sorry!), I do still look forward to this book-- and if it's as good as I think it will be, I'll probably buy a final copy in July anyway!

Oh, and as for the cover-- it's beautiful, I especially love the deep blue color of her dress!


What cover are you currently lusting for? Tell me, I want to know! Follow the directions above on how to post your own Lusting for Covers, and leave a comment telling me what you think of cover.







I was going to start back up with more posts by the end of this next week, since most of my classes are now winding down for the year.

However, due to an expected, and devestating, loss in my immediate family only a few weeks ago, it may be a bit longer before you see TBQ back on the blog-o-sphere for good. Times are a bit... rough right now, to say the least.

Know that I WILL return full force, but, unfortunately, I do not yet have a date that I can promise you. I hope that everyone is doing fine, and reading plenty of great books--write 'em down, and save them until I'm back, because I'm sadly behind on new and upcoming books.

Enjoy!






Until Next Time,
