"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 (06)

Friday Covers is a weekly meme inspired by Cover Crazy, which is hosted by Tawni at The Book Worms.  The point of this meme is to admire the art and beauty of a book’s design.  In my interpretation, I'm not only admiring covers, but criticizing them as well.

This week I'm just showing off some covers.

First up are the Bulgarian covers of Shiver and Linger
(The Wolves of Mercy Falls series) by Maggie Stiefvater

 Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous!  I really love love love these and kinda wish they were the ones we had in the U.S.  I do like that they kept the color schemes to each book, and I'm looking forward to seeing Forever in this edition.

Next is the U.K. edition of The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.

While I really love the starkness of the U.S. edition, there is just something so awesome about this cover.  I think because it looks like a letter or a note that Charlie wrote.  Just great!


Finally, this is the Serbian (this is a huge guess based on a translator)
of Looking for Alaska by John Green:

I love the bright use of color.  yellow is such an eye-catching shade.  Also, I really like that it is a picture of sneakers because that demonstrates the journey within the book.

Let me know what covers have been on your mind and if you agree with my opinions here.
