follow friday (10) & cover lust (1)


This week's question courtesy of Parajunkee's Follow Friday is:


Q: What do I do when I are not reading?
At the moment I work tons, but come the end of next month school starts for me and then it will be the opposite: I will be reading only when I am not in school and doing schoolwork, sadly! However since studying human rights and political science can be intense I look forward to having a fantastic read to break things up. Other than reading I listen to a ton of music (my favorites are DMB and サカナクション) and attend too many concerts. I go cycling and run and write. I play with my kitties and catch up on all of your fabulous posts.

The lovely Melissa at i swim for oceans has created a weekly meme for gorgeous book covers and I just have to join in on this one, too! I was going to highlight Tahereh Mafi's Shatter Me as well, but I'll pick a different one!


Title: Between Two Ends
Author: David Ward
Publisher: Amulet Books
Genre: Middle Grade/YA
Fun Fact: The illustrations were done by Onoda Yuta and I'd encourage you to check out his other work as he is immensely talented!
Why I Have Cover Lust:
When I first looked at this cover I loved it because of the colors (I love color blocking especially when it works to great effect like it does here), typography and amazing illustrative work, and I thought Yeats was standing on sand. And he is - but after you read this book the cover art takes on a whole other layer of cleverness which is just the beginning of what I love about this book!

That is SUCH a cool cover! I don't see nearly enough artistic covers like that these days. I love me some pretty photos, but that's just awesome :)

Thanks for joining in!
