Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted byBreaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
A few days ago we made a post gently mocking the cover of Jennifer L Armentrout’s Obsidian. When I saw Princess Bookie’s Recreate a Cover Contest I decided to try my own hand at re-imagining this cover. I am not the best with photoshop, but I tried.
For my image I used a picture from the UK Glamour photoshoot of Nikki Reed and Kellan Lutz. The building in the background is Olgebay Hall at West Virginia University, I got the image via Bawwomick.
Paranormal romance isn’t always my speed, but I have blogged about this book so much I am probably going to go out and get it.
The National Book Festival was last weekend. We had to be there to meet some of today’s most popular YA authors.
B&S is taking part in the In My Mailbox meme started by The Story Siren. Each week bloggers post books that have arrived in their mailbox, picked up from the bookstore or purchased. Here are some books I’m getting ready to read.
I picked both of these up fromMcKay’s Used Bookstore.
City Of Glass by Cassandra Clare
I’m making my way through The Mortal Instruments series. This is the third in the six book series.
Into The Woods By Tana French
I passed by this book so many times in the college bookstore. I don’t know much about it but have heard that it is a Mystery/Thriller.

In just a few weeks Tally will be there. . . But Tally’s new friend Shay isn’t sure she wants to be pretty. . . When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world — and it isn’t very pretty.
Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies is the first in a series of novels that asks the question; What is the cost of beauty? This dystopian novel takes place in a world were everyone is made to believe they are “ugly” until their sixteenth birthday, when the are tuned pretty via extensive plastic surgery.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Release Date : January 10, 2012
I have recently become a fan of John Green after reading several of his books and I am so excited forThe Fault in Our Stars to come out. The novel is somewhat inspired by Esther Earl–an amazing fan of his who died at age 16 of thyroid cancer.
Green is hand signing all of the first printing and I already pre-ordered mine off Amazon and I can’t wait ! I’m anxious to know what the cover art will look like. Until then, I will have to look at this Tumblr of fan made covers.
