Shelf Candy Saturday is hosted by A Night's Dream of Books
It has been almost three months since I've posted a Shelf Candy Saturday and boy does time fly! I'm going to try to get back into the swing of things and start posting 2 each month...or more if the mood strikes me :)
Stung (Stung #1) by Bethany Wiggins
There is no cure for being stung.
Fiona doesn't remember going to sleep. But when she opens her eyes, she discovers her entire world has been altered - her house is abandoned and broken, and the entire neighborhood is barren and dead. Even stranger is the tattoo on her right hand - a black oval with five marks on either side - that she doesn't remember getting but somehow knows she must cover at any cost. She's right.
Those bearing the tattoo have turned into mindless, violent beasts that roam the streets and sewers, preying upon the unbranded while a select few live protected inside a fortress-like wall, their lives devoted to rebuilding society and killing all who bear the mark.
Now Fiona has awakened branded, along - and on the wrong side of the wall.

Cured (Stung #2)
I only heard about Stung because the kindle book just happened to have been on a sale list I was looking at and I'm glad it was because it sounds like a very good book. I'm an admitted cover whore so I also love all of these covers! One of the things that stands out to me is the detail of the bee on the Stung cover to the right. It took me a while to realize that it's actually a syringe within the body of the bee. These covers just have an overall ominous feel which of course calls to me and my love of creepy books.
