Lusting for Covers is a meme found on TBQ so come and join in on this fun meme!!!
1- Take the graphic (left) to use on your post. Remember to give credit to the original host (TBQ).
2- Choose your own book cover that you’ve fallen in “lust” with in the past week. It can be new, old, a reprint, or even a book that is not yet out– it’s all up to you! If you find a cover that catches your eye, then showcase it on your blog, and let others see the pretty covers out there.
3- Copy the direct link to your own L4C post into the comment section on my post (when in doubt, use this link and then scroll down to find the post), and allow others to come and see what you picked!
(OPTIONAL): 4- Besides posting the picture of the book cover you chose, it’s nice to provide the book summary, title, author, or a website link for the book. It’s not required, but it can help you readers’ to add more books to their own list! A brief “Why I choose this cover” is also appreciated, but not required
My thirty-third for this fun meme is:
Kiss of Steel (London Steampunk #1) by Bec McMaster
Synopsis: When Nowhere Is Safe
Most people avoid the dreaded Whitechapel district. For Honoria Todd, it’s the last safe haven. But at what price?
Blade is known as the master of the rookeries—no one dares cross him. It’s been said he faced down the Echelon’s army single-handedly, that ever since being infected by the blood-craving he’s been quicker, stronger, and almost immortal.
When Honoria shows up at his door, his tenuous control comes close to snapping. She’s so…innocent. He doesn’t see her backbone of steel—or that she could be the very salvation he’s been seeking.
Usually for the LoC entries I have chosen books that have not yet been published, but I have run out of those upcoming releases at present, so I decided to go into my Goodreads Read List and find one of my favorites. This book I actually bought solely because the cover grabbed my attention. I got the paperback and when I walked past it on the self I kept coming back to it. The red is vibrant and the composition was very pleasing to my eye. I had never read Steampunk before and it did take me several months to actually pick up and read it, but once I did, I couldn’t put it or the series down! I loved the book and became a Steampunk fan (so much so that I dressed up as a steam punk Victorian woman for Halloween this year). This author only has this series out so far, but she paints a story and a setting beautifully. Her characters (especially the male lead in the first one-Blade, is deliciously entertaining with his cockney accent. Loved it! If you are interested in branching off into something different or you already enjoy Steampunk, this series is an absolute must!!
