Follow Friday+ The Book Blog Hop (7)



Well, it's Friday once again and this week I'm not so much sick of school as battling a turkey hangover.  I hope everyone reading from the US had a great Thanksgiving, and has an equally awesome Black Friday. (Which here means snagging a lot of deals, since peaceful and non-hectic is too much to ask for. :) )  Granted, I'm not braving the crowds myself-- I'm far too fond of sleeping in. 
Anyway, I'd like to welcome anyone stopping by my blog via the Book Blog Hop (hosted by Crazy-for-Books) or following via FF (hosted over at Parajunkee's View).  Leave a comment so I can hop by your blog as well. :) 

The blog hop question is "What is your favorite book cover?" 
My answer: Oh no... how can I possibly pick just one.  I confess to sometimes judging a book by its cover. :) Okay... lately I am particularly enamored of the cover for Luminous by Dawn Metcalf.  It's absolutely gorgeous... *dreamy sigh*.  But as far as among my favorite books, I really love the US covers for Scott Westerfeld's Uglies Trilogy, which all feature Tally-wa's face... you have to read the series to know why her looks change so drastically. 
The Pretties cover is my favorite-- who are these models?  They really do look just as beautiful as the pretties in the books must be. Alright, that's enough fawning over covers. :)

A very quick re-cap of what's been going on around A Myriad of Books this week:

--It's the last week to enter my giveaway to win a copy of Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton, along with a beautiful necklace provided by Kersten herself.  I don't have so many entries that the odds of winning are that scarce, so please just throw your name into the (virtual) hat. :)
-- I signed up for the 2011 Debut Author Reading Challenge and picked out some debut novels that look fantastic.

And finally, this blog is almost to 100 followers!!  I never thought the day would come, especially not so soon.  Thanks guys, for checking out and following my little blog.  I hope you all have an awesome weekend!

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.

Happy Thanksgiving Day Weekend!
