Book cover guessing challenge

Hello buddies!  I’m here with a book challenge that I have seen on YouTube and being done by bloggers but never got the chance to do myself until Tasha tagged me. Thanks sweety!
Check out her blog,  it’s amazing.
So for this challenge what you do is you pick a few books (typically well known) that you know little or nothing about and guess what they are about based on the cover and title. Then, you compare it with the actual blurb on Goodreads and see how you fare.
Let’s get this started shall we?

1. I’ll tell you I love you but then I’d have to kill you

image

by Ally Carter

So based on the cover, I think it’s set in High school with a female protagonist who is undercover or something.  She’s spying on some student and then maybe falls in love with him..

Goodreads blurb :
The Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses but it’s really a school for spies.Cammie Morgan may be an elite spy-in-training, but in her sophomore year, she’s on her most dangerous mission-falling in love. 

Okay so I was right about spying and school and love! Good going. 🙂

2. You by Caroline K

Some huge stalker shit! Obsession believed to be love.  Ends up in bloodshed or murder. And there’s this paper on the cover that tells me a letter or something is involved.

Goodreads blurb:
When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card. As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder. 

Damn! This is like a superpower or something. I guessed this one perfectly. I love this challenge.

3. A madness so discreet by Mindy McGinnis

image

Maybe this has something related with ghosts of the past or real ghosts. Maybe dead people coming alive.  I think it has a historical setting. An old house in the forest. A girl who has some mental problems and hides alone or is being locked up somewhere.  I’m making a lot of guesses on this one.

Goodreads blurb:

Grace Mae knows madness.She keeps it locked away, along with her voice, trapped deep inside a brilliant mind that cannot forget horrific family secrets. Those secrets, along with the bulge in her belly, land her in a Boston insane asylum. When her voice returns in a burst of violence, Grace is banished to the dark cellars, where her mind is discovered by a visiting doctor who dabbles in the new study of criminal psychology. With her keen eyes and sharp memory, Grace will make the perfect assistant at crime scenes. Escaping from Boston to the safety of an ethical Ohio asylum, Grace finds friendship and hope, hints of a life she should have had. But gruesome nights bring Grace and the doctor into the circle of a killer who stalks young women. Grace, continuing to operate under the cloak of madness, must hunt a murderer while she confronts the demons in her own past.

4. Joyride by Anna Banks

Two people out on a long drive. Contemporary romance. Why do I have a feeling something goes wrong? Um..  Maybe they’re not supposed to be together. Maybe someone finds out.

Goodreads blurb :
A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—

5. Damage done by Amanda Panitch

image

A murder mystery. Someone killed the protagonist’s close friend or family but the murderer was never caught and now there’s a new lead. She wants to find out who is the killer but thinks if it would even matter or should she just move on?

Goodreads blurb:
Before: Julia had a twin brother, a boyfriend, and a best friend.
After: She has a new identity, a new hometown, and memories of those twenty-two minutes that refuse to come into focus. At least, that’s what she tells the police.
Now that she’s Lucy Black, she’s able to begin again. She’s even getting used to the empty bedroom where her brother should be. And her fresh start has attracted the attention of one of the hottest guys in school, a boy who will do anything to protect her. But when someone much more dangerous also takes notice, Lucy’s forced to confront the dark secrets she thought were safely left behind.One thing is clear: The damage done can never be erased. It’s only just beginning. . 

6. Tonight the street are ours by Leila Sales

image

Two artists or friend who wander off the streets having fun. They want to be recognized or leave a mark so they do something big. I’m also thinking one of them does graffiti.

Goodreads blurb:
Seventeen-year-old Arden Huntley is recklessly loyal. Taking care of her loved ones is what gives Arden purpose in her life and makes her feel like she matters. But she’s tired of being loyal to people who don’t appreciate her—including her needy best friend and her absent mom. Arden finds comfort in a blog she stumbles upon called “Tonight the Streets Are Ours,” the musings of a young New York City writer named Peter. When Peter is dumped by the girlfriend he blogs about, Arden decides to take a road trip to see him. During one crazy night out in NYC filled with parties, dancing, and music—the type of night when anything can happen, and nearly everything does—Arden discovers that Peter isn’t exactly who she thought he was. And maybe she isn’t exactly who she thought she was, either.

Turns out I am not as good at this as I thought.

7. Everything I never told you by Celeste NG

image

A couple of hidden letters or notes. It’s full of secrets or things never told.  Maybe love letters.

Goodreads blurb:
Lydia is dead. But they don’t know this yet . . . So begins this debut novel about a mixed-race family living in 1970s Ohio and the tragedy that will either be their undoing or their salvation. Lydia is the favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee; their middle daughter, a girl who inherited her mother’s bright blue eyes and her father’s jet-black hair. Her parents are determined that Lydia will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue—in Marilyn’s case that her daughter become a doctor rather than a homemaker, in James’s case that Lydia be popular at school, a girl with a busy social life and the center of every party.
When Lydia’s body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together tumbles into chaos, forcing them to confront the long-kept secrets that have been slowly pulling them apart.

Phew! Done.
