Top 5 Wednesday - Terrible Covers

Hi to all you booklovers out there.  I hope you're having a great day.

Today I'm going to do my first Top 5 Wednesday video.  This series was created by the lovely Lainey at GINGERREADSLAINEY and I'll include a link to the Goodreads group if you would also like to participate {here}

This week we are looking at our Top 5 Terrible covers.  To me, a terrible cover is one that is not only unattractive - or dare I say, ugly - but also total inappropriate for the content matter. Sort of like putting a tank on a Harry Potter cover and expecting someone to know it was a children’s fantasy.

So without further ado, here are my top 5 terrible covers...

Fell off the wagon and ordered more books

Hi to all you booklovers.  Just thought that I'd post a quick update as I've just been an idiot and ordered some more books!  It's a sickness, I know, but I just can't seem to help myself when I see all those gorgeous covers.  

Anyway, I just ordered the following books that will hopefully be in the post tomorrow ;-D

Unbreakable by Kami Garcia
Wayfinder by C.E. Murphy
Replica by Jenna Black
The City's Son by Tom Pollock (signed hardcover)
A Cook in Time by Joanne Pence ($1!!), and finally
Vanished in the Night by Eileen Carr (also only $1!!)

I don't feel too bad as I only spent just over $30 ($30.96 to be precise) and I'd spend more than that on just two books at my local bookshop.  Still I really should be saving money for Christmas - and the big discounts at the end of year sales!

Oh, and earlier today the courier knocked on my door with 2 parcels for me.  I'm actually amazed at how quickly Book Depository sent the books this time.  I filmed the unboxing, but have yet to get around to editing it ;-D  Hopefully I'll get something up soon.

Tomorrow I will be posting my next Top 5 Wednesday list, hope to see you then.

Until then,
