Judging by the Cover Tuesday

Judging by the Cover Tuesday (4/19)

Judging by the Cover Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Hello Beautiful Book Blog.

Anyone can play along, just do the following:

  1. Search the web for the cutest cover you come across, ideally an unreleased book
  2. Don’t read the synopsis
  3. Try to guess what the book is about
  4. Read the synopsis and see how close you came
  5. Make sure to link Hello Beautiful Book Blog as your host!♥

Post in the comments the link to your own Judging by the Cover Tuesday post or share your cover in the comments below if you do not have a blog. Thanks! 🙂

♥♥♥Judging by the Cover Tuesday, where I score the web for the cutest cover I can find and try to guess what the story is going to be about before reading the blurb. All books are only judged by the cover and are not yet released.


I have two more books this week, one by J.J. McAvoy, a bestselling author with plenty of books under her belt. She is young and has so many books it’s crazy! This one drops in just a couple of days and caught my eye as soon as I saw it. The other book is Heir to the Sky by Amanda Sun who is also no stranger to novels. She has a series called Paper Gods. This one obviously caught my eye as well.


On to the fun part, That Thing Between Eli and Gwen caught my eye I think because the people are sideways. It just stood out from the others and made me want to click on it.

First Impressions: This is definitely going to be a romance and “that thing” has brought them together, whatever “that thing” may be. It could be anything, but it will be something mutual they share I’m sure. I feel angst bleeding out of this one with his hand up to his head and the look on his face. This boy seems like he will be put through the wringer. Anyways, romantic angst.

Check out the blurb below.


That Thing Between Eli & Gwen by J.J. McAvoy

Release date: April 21, 2016

Eli Davenport thinks he’s found the perfect woman to be his wife. She’s a doctor, like he is. She’s brilliant, like he is. And she’s wealthy, like he is.

Guinevere ‘Gwen’ Poe thinks her fiancée is the perfect man. He’s handsome, successful and he was her first…

But when Eli’s bride runs off with Gwen’s fiancée on his wedding day, they are left to pick up the broken pieces of each other…


Ah, yes. “That thing” looks like it is going to be one hell of a ride. Eli and Gwen share a mutual thing that sounds super agnsty – and… I love it. This sounds awesome. This little gem will be going on my TBR!

I feel I deserve about 3/5 hearts on this one! ♥ ♥ ♥





Aaaand up next we have a girl falling out of the sky. Apparently that is just my favorite thing to pick. I think this is my third. They just catch my eye like nothing else. It intrigues me.

First Impressions: As the title suggests, she is an heir. An heir to what though? The sky people? The first thing I think is spaceship. People living on a space station and she is set to take over as leader.

Check out the blurb below.


Heir to the Sky by Amanda Sun

Release date: April 26, 2016

As heir to a kingdom of floating continents, Kali has spent her life bound by limits: by her duties as a member of the royal family, by a forced betrothal to the son of a nobleman, and by the edge of the only world she’s ever known—a small island hovering above a monster-ridden earth, long since uninhabited by humans. She is the Eternal Flame of Hope for what’s left of mankind, the wick and the wax burning in service for her people, and for their revered Phoenix, whose magic keeps them aloft. 

When Kali falls off the edge of her kingdom and miraculously survives, she is shocked to discover there are still humans on the earth. Determined to get home, Kali entrusts a rugged monster-hunter named Griffin to guide her across a world overrun by chimera, storm dragons, basilisks and other terrifying creatures. But the more time she spends on earth, the more dark truths she begins to uncover about her home in the sky, and the more resolute she is to start burning for herself.


Eh, I didn’t quite grasp all of that. This reminds me of The 100 and although I haven’t read those books, I adore the show. Sounds very intriguing just as the cover suggests.

2/5 hearts for me! ♥ ♥
