"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Friday Covers

This is a new feature, where I talk about & show some of my favorite book covers.

I am definitely a sucker for awesome cover art.  This is what usually captures my attention the most.
Lately I've had a thing with silhouettes.

Each of these overs share the aspect of silhouettes, and in many, the same colors.I love how simple and how complicated they are.  Each really evokes a feeling, be adventure, wonder, danger, or intrigue. 
I want to read each of these books just because of the covers, especially The Cabinet of Wonders and Deadly.  Both just capture me.  

The Cabinet of Wonders is just that, wonder.  The mix of the purples and yellows exude magic, and the addition of the cog pieces along with the lightning bolt hint at a little danger.  And this doesn't even have a cabinet on it, which I like because I kinda hate literal book covers.

Deadly has that yellow color which reflects disease.  Then the the outlines of the bugs in yellow just reinforce this feeling of sickness.  Juxtaposed with the girl in the elaborate dress it is very intriguing.

Comment and let me know what covers are making you happy this week!
