Find a shiny book – Chicks Kick Butt by Rachel Caine and various authors
Under the right light this book is unbelievably shiny! The title is shiny, the weapon the girl is holding is shiny and the starry background is shiny as well.
I’ve read it and I liked the stories.
Some of the stories were very good and only 3 out of 13 were giving me trouble reading trough them. This collection gave me few new authors to explore and I really liked the general girl power kick it gave me.
Find a book with multiple PoVs – Game of Thrones (Song of Ice and Fire book 1 ) by George R.R.Martin
This is Croatian edition of Game of Thrones (Song of Ice and Fire book 1). This book has reached a status of national pride since the TV series is being filmed in Croatia. The series has been first published in the late 1990-ties and this jacket has been added when the TV series came out. I bought first season collection and I got the first book AND a T-shirt as a present.
Here’s the T-shirt
This is what the cover under the jacket looks like
Find the longest book you own – The Great Book of Amber by Roger Zelazny
This was more difficult than I imagined it would be. I have given much thought to my many other book series while weighing which book to pick for this part. There are quite a few chubby books on my shelves – and by chubby I mean books with 1000+ pages.
In the end I choose this one since I’ve never made a post on it before (it’s technically belongs to my boyfriend but it resides on my shelf!). This particular edition is a collection of 10 books in the Amber Chronicles series.
I’ve never read it but heard good things about it.
Find a non YA book – Playing Easy To Get by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Jaid Black & Kresly Cole
So basically this is NOT YA book but erotic collection. The cover says it is romance but the commentary and promo on the back of the book is dripping with cheese!
From the back cover:
“New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon and rising stars Jaid Black and Kresley Cole unlock the pleasures and perils of embracing the boldest and most powerful of lovers — 100% alpha males — in three sensually erotic tales. Discover the physical rapture of his muscular arms…. Become a prisoner of passion, swept away by an encounter with his primal side…. And get lost in the all-consuming thrill of white-hot pursuit by a relentless stranger who may be your most dangerous foe, the best lover you’ve ever had — or both.”
I’ve bought it because of one of the three stories it contains: Warlord Wants Forever by Kresley Cole.
That particular story is a part of Immortals After Dark book series – one I’m a proud owner of. This story is sort of a prequel to the whole series. It is urban fantasy with erotic elements.
Beside this one I’ve got thirteen books from the series and I’m waiting for the book fourteen – Dark Skye – to come out in April this year.
The other two stories are:
Turn up the Heat by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Hunter’s Oath by Jaid Black
I have read only Warlord Wants Forever and I’ve read it more than once!
Find a book with stars on it – A Touch of Dead (Short stories from Sookie Stackhouse series) by Charlaine Harris
So, Yes! the stars here are kinda little dots.
But it is a sky, and there is a moon, and the little dots are the stars. There is even a bit of glitter on the moon and the stars but it is not noticeable since the photo is not of that good quality.
As you can see I’m not happy with the choice I made here. It was surprisingly hard to find a book with stars on the cover on my shelves!
This is a short story collection from the Sookie Stackhouse series as it says on the cover. The book series was originally named Southern Vampire Mysteries. I don’t know why that changed for this book. Probably has something to do with the TV show that was in full blast when this collection came out.
There were few other options but they did not make the cut (yes there were worse options than little dots as stars…)
Find a teal/turquoise colored book – Slayer’s Handbook (Buffy the Vampire Slayer RPG Guide) by Eden Studios
This is one of my Pen n’ Paper role playing game books for Buffy the Vampire Slayer setting. For some reason I got this teal blue hardcover edition. The rest of the books are graced with TV show characters.
This is what the other edition of it look like:
I was a fanatic for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and still am!
Find a hardcover book without a jacket – Angel: The End by Bill Willingham and all.
Strangely this hardcover did not come with a jacket. It is quite the chubby one at that! Most of hardcover edition from some of my favorite Croatian publishers come out without jackets. I was surprised to see it on my shelf that most of my hardcover books in English do have jackets!
What I like about this is cool cover art and Bill Willingham as an author!
This is hardcover collection of Angel”s final three volumes: Immortality for Dummies, The Crown Prince Syndrom, and The Worf, The Ram, and The Heart includes Angel Yearbook.
Last month I have read all Angel graphic novel editions that chronologically precede this edition so I’m all set to start reading it.
