Cover Crazy #5

My cover pick this week is Ironskin (Ironskin, #1) by Tina Connolly.
I seriously don't have words to describe just how gorgeous this cover is. It's just so...gothic.

What do you think of Ironskin's cover?

Waiting on Wednesday #2

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week is The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater.

“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”

It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

Cover Crazy #4

My cover pick this week is What a Boy Needs by Nyrae Dawn.
It's Jaden! :D I am so excited for this book because I'll finally get to read more about Jaden. The cover just makes me giddy with the pierced eyebrow and the hottie, it's just too much!

Cover Crazy #3

Cover Crazy was created by The Bookworms but is now hosted at Turning the Pages.

My cover pick this week is A Confusion of Princes by Garth Nix.
Obviously there is a possible Book Boyfriend on the cover so that's a nice thing. I also love the rays in the background and everything about it is just beautiful. I'm ashamed to say that I've never read a Garth Nix book but I hope to read this one sometime soon.
