Lusting for Covers (1)

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!


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 ( 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 quiet easy-- please use it!

Here is my own "Lusting for Covers" candidate for the week:

Title: Velvet Haven

Author: Sophie Renwick
Extras: Click HERE for excerpts, summary, and pre-order links!


Is it any wonder that after highlighting this amazing cover on my sidebar for months, it would be the first L4C? Come on--- look at it! Sexy man on the cover? Check. Leather pants? Check. Eye catching tattoo? Check! Really, what more could you want? Except for the guy on the cover, of course! *Wink*

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 Velvet Haven's cover.

As you can see, my graphic that I came up with for Lusting for Covers is very... basic. Kind of boring. Unless you'd rather stick with this one (doubtful), I'm going to try and change it soon. But, for now, this will be the graphic.

Thanks for participating in my new meme, and please help to spread the word!


Until Next Time,

I found your site from one of your meme participants. I'm the website coordinator for the Cover Cafe website. We sponsor an annual Romance Cover Contest every year and we are always looking for outstanding covers for our contest. The public can nominate covers and then our committee of 25 reduces the nominees to ten finalists in several categories. We also nominate covers to the contest and your meme will be another resource for "lust worthy" covers.

Great idea for a meme. Since I'm domestically challenged, I always have trouble with the decorating or cooking memes. :>)
