"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 (10)

In this addition of Friday Covers I am gushing over some awesome covers!

Each of these covers has an eerie, "other" sense to them.  I mean how creepy are some of them (This is Not a Test and The Name of the Star for instance).
I love the color palettes, the reds, blues, greens, and blacks (yes there are other shades of black).  All of these colors swirl together beautifully, and really pull me in visually.

On top of the colors, there are all these fantastic photographs.  I personally love photographs as opposed to illustrations, especially when they are done well like these.

What I especially love is that you can't see the eyes of any of the girls.  I believe in the whole "eyes to the soul" thing, and this allows me to really imprint the characters on these girls.

Love them all, and all the books sound awesome as well!  I really think that the covers ad a real layer to the experience of these stories, which is the real point of cover art.

Let me know what you think in the comments!
