Shoot That Book: Hallowed

Shoot That Book combines my passion for books and my tendency to become trigger happy with a camera. My lack of photography skills is compensated by my enthusiasm. Basically, I like taking pictures of books.

I did a Shoot That Book nail polish post for Unearthly a few months ago so I thought it would be a good idea to do the same thing for its sequel, Hallowed. Once again, thanks to my friend Celina for letting me borrow her copy.

It’s not an exact match but I think the dark blue of the nail polish goes well with the color scheme of the Hallowed cover. I’ve finished reading this and I don’t think I’ll write a review for it because I’ll probably just end up saying the same things that I mentioned in my Unearthly review – it was easy to fall into but I didn’t really love it. I’m glad people warned me that the love triangle is more obvious in this installment so I was prepared for that.

Still not sure if I’ll read the last book in the trilogy but maybe I will just to find out how everything ends. And also so I can feature it again on a Shoot That Book post. I wonder what color the cover for Boundless will be?

  1. Love love hard bounds! πŸ™‚ A friend has been encouraging me to read paranormal YA by letting me borrow some of her books. So I am currently under some sort of paranormal YA exploration, up until my friend’s supply lasts that is. And I don’t think I can stay away from fantasy that long you know. πŸ˜€

    • Tin, hope you enjoy your paranormal YA exploration! I kind of feel like most paranormal YA books are similar to each other so I rarely give it a try nowadays, only when a title comes highly recommended. And yep, I agree, hardcovers are great. I try to only grab hardcovers for books that I really want to read because they’re still more expensive than paperbacks.

  2. Ah, I have this hover zoom extension implemented on Google Chrome so I got to see your nails up close and personal and I lovelovelove that color and how metallic it looks. Also, it looks like you are in some sort of beautiful garden with a pond and waterfall in the first shot? Cute!

    • It’s a great color, isn’t it? I want to have my own bottle of this nail polish, I only got a manicure done in a nail salon near our house. That’s the pond in our house, it’s small but it has koi. πŸ˜€

Comments are like chocolate. :) Maraming salamat / thank you!
