I usually say what I think about the covers, but that would just be gushing, gushing, and more gushing.
And you are perfectly capable of gushing over the covers yourself!
So... Which one is your favorite?

Waiting on Wednesday: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where you talk about whatever book you are IMPATIENTLY WAITING for!
This week I am waiting for...


Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)
Goodreads Description:

Darkness never dies.

Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.

The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.



I know that this comes out next week, but I am seriously anticipating it! Shadow and Bone was AMAZING!!!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten YA Cover Trends

Hosted each week by The Broke and the Bookish, it's a meme for listing the top ten for everything bookish.

So, it's been awhile since I've done a Top Ten (or anything on this "blog" to be honest), but school is FINALLY out-of-session! This means that I actually have time to do this stuff.

Today my Top Ten will be "YA Cover Trends"
These are the type of covers that you will most likely always see in the YA section.
