"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

Top 5 (Last Week's)


Hosted by Larissa over at Larissa's Life

I have such weird feelings about covers.  Sometimes I like them right away, sometimes I hate them right away, and sometimes they grow on me (I think it helps if I like the book).  So here are my 5 picks!




I like all of these for a couple of reasons.  

One: the simplicity of design.  I love how clean each book cover is; my eye isn't overwhelmed. 

Two: each also has an amazing pop of color.  Color always attracts me to a book first.

Three: I think each cover shows a part of the plot/character in the story.  This is an important aspect because I feel this is the point of a book cover.

Overall, book covers are so important!  If they weren't we wouldn't use them.  So next time you pick up a book, really give the cover a once over.  

Do you like or not, and why?
