Lusting for Covers (17)

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 quite easy-- please use it!

Here's my candidate for the week:
Sin Undone (The Demonica Series)

Title: Sin Undone
Author: Larissa Ione
Publisher/Publication Date:  Grand Central Publishing (August 24, 2010)
Summary (Amazon):

As the only female Seminus demon ever born, master assassin Sinead Donnelly is used to being treated like an outcast. She spent decades enslaved, and now vows she'll die before she'll relinquish her freedom again. Then Sin's innate ability to kill her enemies goes awry: She creates a lethal new werewolf virus that sparks a firestorm of panic and violence.


Half-werewolf, half-vampire Conall Dearghul is charged with bringing in Sin to face punishment for the plague. And she's no stranger: He's bound to her by blood, and the one sexual encounter they shared has left him hungering for her raw sensuality. Worse, Sin is the underworld's most wanted and Con soon learns he's the only one who can help her . . . and that saving her life might mean sacrificing his own.
Easy--- Ione's "Demonica Series" = Amazing! Handsdown, it's one of my favorite paranormal series out there, and I love all the yummy, tortured heroes she covers. Besides that, the cover for Sin Undone is great--- the simple colors of mostly black/gray and white is just enough to make the book stand out. Now, the only thing that could make it better would be a full frontal view of the sexy cover model-- without the woman. Shirtless would be optional, but preferred. Of course, fully naked is by no means required, but always appreciated! *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 Sin Undone's cover.


I'm so sorry that I've been missing for so long-- my college classes have really taken up all my time, and even my reading, which you know I love dearly, has suffered greatly from it. I hope to be back and posting often by the beginning of May or so, when most of my classes end, but I can't make any set-in-stone promises right now. :)

I hope everyone understands, and please know that if I have not yet reviewed the many books I received a few months ago, it's not because I am ignoring them, I simply have not had the time to read much outside of the textbooks and required readings for class, though I wish it were otherwise. I am going to work through those as soon as I possibly can!

Also, if I've been falling behind on comments, visiting your blogs, (especially for those of you that participate in L4C), I appologize-- I do not mean to do so. I try to keep up with most of them, but lately I've been falling farther and farther behind. Last week, I almost didn't even get the Sunday L4C posted last week. In fact, the only reason I've been able to keep up (sort of) with the L4C's every week is due to the life saving "scheduled post" option.

Know that I will be back--- with more reviews, posts, and even a few contests--- as soon as I can. I miss the blog, and reading for pleasure (textbooks = boring, FYI), but until my classes end for the semester, this is the way it will have to be.


Until Next Time,
