In Love with Covers (#11)

In Love with Covers is a feature here on Book Geek Central and will take place every Sunday. The first thing that I look at when looking for books is the cover. The cover is the primary reason that I pick up a book. This feature highlights gorgeous covers of books I've seen either around the blogosphere or at the bookshop.

How can you not love this cover?!

Book Blogger Hop (#9) & Follow Friday (#9)

Book Blogger Hop

Time for Blogger Hop from Crazy for Books

I've only done Book blogger hop a couple and I like it! I love following other peoples book blogs and looking what they think about new and older releases. It's a great way to get out there and meet new people who share the same interests as you.

This weeks question: "What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011? Why are you anticipating that book?"

My answer:
There are so many books that i am looking forward to this year but at this very moment if i had to pick one book it would have to be Across the Universe by Beth Revis.

Hooked
Catherine Greenman
Goodreads

Goodreads summary:

Thea Galehouse has always known how to take care of herself. With a flighty club-owner mom and a standoffish, recovering-alcoholic dad, Thea has made her own way in her hometown of New York, attending the prestigious and competitive Stuyvesant High School. But one chat with Will, a handsome and witty senior, and she's a goner—completely hooked on him and unable to concentrate on anything else.
Always worried that she loves Will more than he loves her, Thea is pleasantly surprised when their romance weathers his move to college and Will goes out of his way to involve her in his life. But then, Thea misses a period. And that starts Thea and Will on a wild ride that neither of them could have possibly prepared for. When they decide to keep the baby, their concerned parents chip in what they can to keep Will in school and give both teenagers a comfortable place to raise their child. But when a freak accident leaves Thea shaken and threatens to upend their little family altogether, Thea is forced to turn to the last place she would have chosen for comfort: her stiff, uncompromising father.
This smart, touching first novel brims with realistic, beautifully drawn characters, and reminds us that love is never as easy or predictable as we might like it to be.

Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna Dressed in Blood, #1)
Kendare Blake
Goodreads

Goodreads summary:

Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl-kills-people story. . .

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.

So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.

When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn't expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, but now stained red and dripping blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.

And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.

This weeks question: Who do you cheer for?

My answer:
In not really that much of a sports person except for when the rugby and the Six Nations Rugby is on and then it's Wales all the way when the Six Nations are on(with me being a Welsh girl and all) but with just normal rugby it has to be even the Scarlets or the Cardiff Blues.

quick note!!!!

Hey guys,
I just wanted to say sorry for not having many new posts up, but i'm in a show of Jack and the beanstawk at the moment and from last Friday until next Saturday i'm doing shows every night! So I haven't had any time at all to do any reading and I haven't had any time to update the blog. The only reason that i've had time to write this up is because i'm doing my homework at the same time.
But every thing will hopefully be back to normal by Sunday! (It will I promise!)

Sorry again guys and I will try to do some updates, promise!
Love you all and thanks for still sticking with me,
April x

Waiting on Wednesday (#6)



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

Siren's Storm
Lisa Papademetriou
August 9th 2011



Goodreads summary:

Nothing has been the same for Will ever since what happened last summer. One day, on an ordinary sailing trip with his brother, there is a strange accident. When Will wakes up, he learns his brother has disappeared, presumed drowned. Worst of all, Will can't remember what happened—his family finds him unconscious, with no memory of the accident.

Now Will and his best friend and neighbor, Gretchen, are starting a new summer. Gretchen seems troubled—her sleepwalking habit is getting worse, and she keeps waking up closer and closer to the water. Will is drawn to Asia, the exotic new girl in town. Nobody knows where she's from—all Will knows is that her beauty and her mesmerizing voice have a powerful effect on people.

Then there is another mysterious drowning, and Will and Gretchen begin to wonder: Is Asia just another beautiful, wealthy summer resident? Or is she something entirely more sinister . . . and inhuman?
