Blog Hop Friday


It is Friday!! And time for another HOP! Visit Crazy-For-Books and link up your response to the question, then blog about it on your site, then visit some phenomenal bloggers!

This week's question comes from Sarah who blogs at Writer, Reader, Dreamer:

"What is your favorite book cover?"




One of my favorite book covers is Oh!: A mystery of 'mono no aware' by Todd Shimoda. I really do not think the beauty of this book can be translated to the eye without holding it in your hands. The inside is equally as beautiful with high quality paper and lovely illustrations by the author's wife.


I reviewed this book here (the cover looks more the way it looks in real life on my review page).








Another book cover that I love is What I Loved by Suri Hustvedt. It reminds me of a Dali painting that I also find enchanting.
I reviewed this book here. It was one of my favorites this year.
I am trying desperately to get everything I have read over the last few months reviewed.
Please hop around and see how I am coming along! And I plan to visit as many people on the list because it has been a while since I have participated.

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!
