Shatter me by Tahereh Mafi
Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases a…

This week I've chosen: Torn by Amanda Hocking. 
When Wendy Everly first discovers the truth about herself--that she's a changeling switched at birth--she knows her life will never be the same. Now she's about to learn that there's more to the story... She shares a closer connection to her Vittra rivals than she ever imagined--and they'll stop at nothing to lure her to their side. 

With the threat of war looming, her only hope of saving the Trylle is to marry a powerful royal. But that means walking away from Finn, her handsome bodyguard who's strictly off limits...and Loki, a Vittra prince with whom she shares a growing attraction. 
Torn between her heart and her people, between love and duty, Wendy must decide her fate. If she makes the wrong choice, she could lose everything, and everybody, she's ever wanted...in both worlds. 
As the fi…

My teasers: 
"Adrian," I whispered, catching his sleeve. "You want to tell the truth Do it in there. Do not embellish or make up crazy claims that you were a district attorney."

This week I've chosen: Nightshade by Andrea Cremer. 
This cover is beautiful! There's not much to really say about it other than it's gorgeous with the coloring and the flowers. I love her eyes and the shimmer around them.

My teasers:
"Being charming is my hobby," said Adrian obstinately. "I'm the life of a party- even without drinking. I wasn't meant to be alone."

Cover crazy #2

This week I decided to go with a cover that I have always loved!
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. 
I love this cover! Big Ben in the background, the glowing marks on "Will", the wheel kind of things that you can just make out on the top. The cover of the book has a old fashioned style about it which goes well with it - because the story takes place in the 1800's.   Yes, some part of my lovin' for this is because of the hunk on the cover. Everything about him, the clothes, the hat, posture. 
Look at the way he tilts that hat!

My teasers!
So, I'm still reading Switched and I'll post another teaser from that, but from the part that I have not read, yet. 

Finn made a noise in his throat, and both Elora and Willa glared at him, but neither of them said anything.

Well, since I'm reading Switched by Amanda Hocking I decided to start with that since I absolutely love the cover!
Switched by Amanda Hocking. (TrylleTrilogy #1) 
When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn't until eleven years later that Wendy finds out her mother might've been telling the truth. With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself in a world she never knew existed - and it's one she's not sure if she wants to be a part of.
This book actually has three covers, but I myself own the one above and just love it. (I'll feature the others at the end). I love the black and white, very simple and then there's the butterflies in orange to give a little color, also if you have the book you can see that there's like little beads to give that extra sparkle to it.
