Lusting for Covers (26)


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:

The Mammoth Book of Scottish Romance




Author: Multiple Authors
Publisher/Publication Date: Running Press (January 4, 2011)
Summary (Amazon):
 This collection of 20-plus romance stories will traverse the rolling hills of Scotland, including both contemporary and historical settings, time travel, ghosts, and plenty of fantastic and paranormal elements.

Why?
Obvious answer: It's a book of nothing. but. Scottish. Romances. As if that wasn't enough of a temptation, really an obsession to get the book, add in the fact that the authors involved are all extremely talented. Oh, and almost forgot-- the cover is SPECTACULAR! Sexy, vibrant, eye  catching... I could look at those embracing lovers for hours and not get tired-- there is so much to look at, details to take in. It looks so life like, just on the computer screen--- I drool to think of it in real life!

The downside? The release date-- January of next year! NOOOOO! This is one book I'd kill to get an ARC of before then... preferably with this beautiful cover, not a plain paper one. :-D


Any other Scottish romance hussies ready to join me in a bit of a journey, Operation MBOSR Retrieval? I'd be willing to do anything for this...lie, cheat, steal... kill. Hmm...




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 the The Mammoth Book of Scottish Romance's cover.






Enjoy!






Until Next Time,

  3. Oooo!! I am so glad you chose the Mammoth Book of Scottish Book Romance as one of your hot cover picks! My short story, After the Gloaming, will be included in the anthology and I am thrilled with the cover too!! I could be biased, but I think it is one of the hottest and most beautiful covers...

    Love your blog!

  4. EH,

    I've got the Mammother book of Irish Romance in my TBR pile, but I've yet to read it. Love the cover on that one as well... :)

    Mistress of the Dark,
    I'd love to have a copy of your L4C as well. I can't remember, is that one already out or not?

    Leah,
    Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by, I'm glad you're enjoying it so far. :D I'm anxious to read this one, I always love anthologies, since it not only allows me to read short stories from authors I already know, but to also find new ones as well! And don't worry, I don't think it's being biased-- this is one smokin' cover, and quiet possibly one of the best I've seen!

    Hmm, maybe at the end of the year we'll do a contest for the Best L4C canidate... :)

    Thanks for stopping by!
    Enjoy,
    TBQ

  5. Yes! Oui! Please do run an end of the year contest for best cover!

    Again, my bias is showing here, but Elle Jasper's new book, Afterlight, has a pretty awesome cover too! (She's a dear pal, but she has not paid or compensated me in any way for making this statement :)
