Question 01: What is your favorite cover that has been revealed this summer and why? Post a link or picture of the cover if you want.

Of course, I have an opinion on book covers - whether they're pretty, okay, or could've been better, but I don't think I have a "favorite". If I had to choose one, I think it would have to be:
It's so different than the pretty pictures out there. It's very graphic, awesome, and a bit reminiscent of HP, isn't it?

Question 02: Do you rely on the cover to help you choose whether you want to read a book or not?

Haha, sometimes. I'm so guilty. I love pretty book covers. That's not saying that I won't read it because the cover is bad. No, I will read it... eventually. It's just that if it came down to choosing between two books who's premise both sound very good, I'd probably like something with the pretty cover over the fugly book cover one. Hmm, I'm a bit of a book cover snob, aren't I? I can't help but like purdy things!

Books I'm planning on reading*:
Team Human by Justine Larbalestier & Sarah Rees Brennan
Lonely Alpha by Ranae Rose
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols
The Thing about the Truth by Lauren Barnholdt 

* Books are subject to change... depending on my mood :0)

Wow! it looks like you're making great progress on your reading pile. :]

And great cover choice, Seraphina is pretty. I had it on my WoW post I think last week.

Good luck meeting your goals and happy reading!

I love the cover for Seraphina. I think it fits the old worldishness of the book perfectly! Great pick!
