Book Blogger Hop


The Book Blogger Hop is a great meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.  Each week Jennifer asks a question.  You answer it on your blog and then make sure you put your link on Jennifer's page, and go blog hopping!

This weeks question is:

"What is your favourite book cover?"


There are lots of book covers out there at the moment that I adore and it was hard to choose just one.  I whittled down my list and just couldn't decide between these two:




Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

I am reading this at the moment and loving it!  The cover just fits the theme of the story perfectly - Christmas in NY, the signpost, the cute little heart on the crossing and snow!  One thing I've noticed about this cover whilst visiting other blogs is that it really jumps off the page and slaps you in the face.  It always seems to be the very first book I notice, even in a photo with many other books.





The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

This is on my bookshelf at the moment waiting to be read.  I've had it about 3 weeks and must have picked it up off the shelf 50 times since it arrived, just to look at the cover.  I love it!  Dark, mysterious, scary!  The Victorian pram would actually be so pretty if it wasn't so damn scary.








Hope you enjoyed visiting my little corner of the interweb.  Happy Blog Hopping!

Hi! I'm blog hopping today and am delighted to have found your blog. As an avaricious reader it is always a pleasure to meet others who share the same passion. I'm your latest follower and am off to explore your blog....There are quite a few books on your sidebar that I fancy reading. (I've chomped my waythrough some others I have spotted their too.) By the way your blog title is excellent.

Oooh, I like The Replacement cover - very dark and creepy, yet elegant at the same time.

Good picks! I really love the cover for The Replacement. Actually, that cover is what first got me to want to read the book. I think it also fits the book really well.

Yes, The Replacement is an awesome cover! I had it in my hand to buy at the bookstore today and actually put it back! (Shame on me right!?!?) Thanks for stopping by today!

Uniquely Moi Books said...

Yeah, I know, but in my defense, I only had a coupon for one book, so I went with Black Swan Rising!(I ended up with a better deal that way)

Uniquely Moi Books said...

This week's Book Blogger Hop question WAS a tough one! It took me two solid minutes to come up with an answer!

Which book cover did I pick? I invite you to hop over to my blog and see for yourself.
