Name That Book Again!

Let's give you a behind-the-scenes peek of how Krispy and I assiduously plan our blog posts, crafting them with the utmost attention to care and detail.  It normally goes like this:

Krispy: Alz, it's 11 pm and we have to blog for tomorrow.

Alz: CRAP.  What are we blogging?

Krispy: I don't know!  It's late and I need to sleep soon!

Alz: I will come up with something!

And that's why you get harebrained poorly-lit and badly-photographed posts like today, where we have for you today another round of Name That Book--this time with photographs!  Brought to you courtesy of the crappy iPad camera, the Lorax, and other random props grabbed from around the house by your friendly neighborhood Alz.

1. Krispy really loved this YA fantasy, and I liked it all right.
The heroine is a special snowflake and a killer bamf.
(Ignore the fact that it says Excalibur on the sword.)

2. This supposedly sci-fi/fantasy story (that I hated) had
an interesting concept concerning reincarnation.

3. One of the first YA dystopians that Krispy and I read, and actually liked!
The final book in the trilogy is coming out next year.
(Psst, the Lorax is suppsoed to be wearing a green dress.)

4. A YA fantasy with an interesting concept about being the Chosen One.
Also the protagonist was obese.
Also I hated this book too.

5. I bet nobody will guess what cover this is.

Go ahead, have a gander and a guess!  Yes, I really do have a gray tie and I have indeed worn it--prior to the release of a certain book.  You can't really see but the great thing about it is that it's a young boy's zip-up tie, no actual tying necessary!

Answers will be posted Friday.  Also, HEY, it's Krispy's birthday on Thursday.  Wish her a happy dappy time and nag her to write more because her NaNoWriMo wordcount is profoundly sad and not even her birthday is going to make me let up on her.

Oh man I love your book covers!! AWESOME.

1. Graceling - never finished this one because it got boring and I wasn't fond of the characters
2. Incarnate - also never finished this one. Read the sample and it just wasn't for me. I guess it's a good thing I gave up, if you hated it. :P
3. Matched - hmm, didn't like this one much either. (Gah, this list is making me seem like such a book hater!)
4. Girl of Fire and Thorns - never read this one but heard good things. More wary since you didn't like it.
5. LOL Fifty Shades of Grey - I actually tried to read some of it and it was SO AWFUL in terms of quality!

Also, happy birthday Krispy! :D I'm sure you'll have an awesome celebration!

This is a really neat meme. My first time coming across it.
I hope you will do more in the future and I better not miss it.
