Cover Love #1

Property of Bookshelvers Anonymous
I've decided to add on another meme! Readers, let me introduce you to Cover Love, if you haven't heard of it already. Every other Thursday (I will not be able to do it every week!) I'll be talking about a book that has a cover I like. That's basically it. I can gush, squeal, or just explain why I picked that exact cover. All thanks to Shelver at Bookshelvers Anonymous, I have this chance! 

Don’t Sweat.  Don’t Laugh.  Don’t draw attention to yourself.  And most of all, whatever you do, do not fall in love with one of them.

Gene is different from everyone else around him.  He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood.  Gene is a human, and he knows the rules.  Keep the truth a secret.  It’s the only way to stay alive in a world of night—a world where humans are considered a delicacy and hunted for their blood.

When he’s chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity to hunt the last remaining humans, Gene’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble around him.  He’s thrust into the path of a girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible—and into a ruthless pack of hunters whose suspicions about his true nature are growing. Now that Gene has finally found something worth fighting for, his need to survive is stronger than ever—but is it worth the cost of his humanity?

I was searching for books and then BANG--this smacked me in the head. I felt as if it pulled me through the screen. Just look at it. Personally, I love it. 

You see two different kind of worlds. You see the lighter side with two teens. But then outside of it, there's a darker, harsher world. It's as if it's being ripped. People are running. They're panicking and it looks like the world is ending. With the cover and the description, you know people are trying to survive. Although dark, I like the darker "world" the best. It's so creepy and even sad. I do love the contrast though with the bright yellow in the center. 

I'm not a huge fan of guy POVs, but I'm getting more and more used to them. This is one I'll probably pick up just because of that very cool cover. 

What do you think? What cover are you intrigued by? 


  1. I like this cover...I picked it up because of that, but then couldn't get into the book! Gah!

    New sort-of GFC is messed up, so I've added you to my reader for now. Will be back!


    1. Oh no! Man, that's disappointing.

      Yay! Thank you!

  2. i do like how this conveys two worlds very nicely! i like all the little details and how it gives you a glimpse of another world. great pick!
