Lusting for Covers (35)

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:
Witch & Wizard: The Gift (Witch and Wizard)

Author: James Patterson
Publisher/Publication Date: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers (December 13, 2010)
Summary (Amazon):
When Whit & Wisty were imprisoned by the wicked forces of the totalitarian regime known as the New Order, they were barely able to escape with their lives. Now part of a hidden community of teens like themselves, Whit and Wisty have established themselves as leaders of the Resistance, willing to sacrifice anything to save kids kidnapped and brutally imprisoned by the New Order.

But the One has other plans in store for them: He needs Wisty, for she is "The One Who Has the Gift." While trying to figure out what that means, Whit and Wisty's suspenseful adventures through Overworld and Shadowland lead to a jaw-dropping climax and conclusion: the highly-anticipated fulfillment of the heart-pounding opening prologue of book one

It's a simple enough cover, yet my attention is still drawn to-- and held-- by the stunning blue on black image. :D Plus, Patterson's various works have always intrigued me, and I usually end up reading all of them after they come out. This one will be no exception! 

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.

Don't forget to enter my contest for a copy of The Eternal Ones! Contest ends Aug. 29th, at 10 pm*. See the post for full rules, entry options, et cetera. Help to spread the word, and you could earn a few extra entries!
*However, if I don't get more entries by then, I will extend the contest another week-- come on you guys, I can't hold future contests if I don't get very many people interested in a free book! :D 


Until Next Time,

That is a great cover, very simple but beautiful. I'll be back with my cover later today.
