Happy 4th of July + Book Cover

Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying yourself this Independence Day. Even the overseas peeps, I hope you are having a great day! :)

Right now there is a nasty storm. So that means no fireworks today.

Oh, and I want to explain my little absence from the blog. For awhile my laptop's charger has been stubborn. I've been having to wiggle the charging cord and if that didn't work I'd have to move my laptop somewhere else in the house and see if the charger would work elsewhere. One day it was working better than it had in weeks. So later that day I go to charge my laptop again and it just doesn't work at all. I can honestly say that now I have a new appreciation for laptop chargers. It was really tough for me because I had papers to write and tests to take on a computer. Thankfully, my boyfriend has the same computer as me so whenever he came over to see me he'd bring his charger. But because I couldn't keep my boyfriend around all the time or borrow his charger I was having to get on my laptop strictly for writ ting papers and working on a project for school. Of course I had my mom's and sister's laptops as an option but Windows 7 frustrates me because its so different, everything was backwards, from my laptop. This Friday my dad came over the house with a new charger. On a happy note I now can use my laptop whenever I want to.

Another tid bit: Since getting my new charger I'm happy to finally be playing the new Nancy Drew game, The Captive Curse. I got it the day it came out; even though my laptop was practically dead at the time.

With all that out of the way I wanted to share with you all this beautiful book cover I found while browsing Barnes and
Cover Image

What do you guys think of this cover? I think its pretty and makes me interested in the book. Also, it reminds me of Becca Fitzpatrick's books covers, Hush, Hush and Crescendo.

Want to know more about this book? Take a look at the synopsis:

The year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies – nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors – it’s just harmless fun.

That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back to the future.

Desperate to somehow return to 2009 to save Holly but unable to return to his rightful year, Jackson settles into 2007 and learns what he can about his abilities.

But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit this powerful young time-traveler. Recruit… or kill him.

Piecing together the clues about his father, the Enemies of Time, and himself, Jackson must decide how far he’s willing to go to save Holly… and possibly the entire world.

I absolutely love this cover. The text and color scheme is kind of iffy, but the photo is so interesting that the other stuff doesn't really seem to matter. Also, yay for your new charger and Happy Fourth! :)

Thank your dad for buying you a new laptop charger! Now you can use your laptop all day long without the fear of battery going empty. I know how it feels to be a parasite, borrowing chargers, using your sister’s laptop; it’s not easy at all! I hope your charger will last this time around!
