  5. I really like the cover of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea but I'm having trouble getting into the book, I'm not too fond of the writing style.

    1. OMG I really hope you continue reading it! The writing style is very unique, and not for everyone, I suppose.

    1. Seriously though! And Penguin didn't change the cover (like they do so often), which made me happy.

      WOOT! I'm glad you did! Hopefully, Where Silence Gathers is amazing!

    1. It really is! Probably because it is a sequel novel. Sanctum is the first book.

  18. I never paid much attention to the cover of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea before.It looks as if the font takes up a large part of the cover,but now when I see it carefully I have to admit that it's a great cover.
    Great picks Alyssa.And thanks for stopping by.

  20. I love Taken. I had it on my list and then took it off. I love the spine even more. It's so pretty. But I agree with you, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is pretty awesome. I haven't read the book yet but the cover is awesome. It's pretty simple but sometimes that's all you need!
