GoodRead - Book Cover Excitement (Intrinsical)

Hello again, reader of this humble HappyBlog (yes, I have decided to call my blog a HappyBlog).

Now, some of you would know, I like blogging about book covers that look lovely. And I have two blogs of book covers I want to blog today.

The first is a book called "Intrinsical" by Lani Woodland. Now, for those who want to know more about this book, this is the info from the author's website:

Sixteen-year-old Yara Silva has always known that ghosts walk alongside the living. Her grandma, like the other females in her family, is a Waker, someone who can see and communicate with ghosts. Yara grew up watching her grandmother taunted and scorned for this unusual ability and doesn’t want that to be her future. She has been dreading the day when she too would see ghosts, and is relieved that the usually dominant Waker gene seems to have skipped her, letting her live a normal teenage life. However, all that changes for Yara on her first day at her elite boarding school when she discovers the gene was only lying dormant. She witnesses a dark mist attack Brent, a handsome fellow student, and rushes to his rescue. Her act of heroism draws the mist’s attention, and the dark spirit begins stalking her. Yara finds herself entrenched in a sixty-year-old curse that haunts the school, threatening not only her life, but the lives of her closest friends as well. Yara soon realizes that the past she was trying to put behind her isn’t going to go quietly.

Ooooh! Ghost stories. One of my new things I like to read (as well as fallen angels, of course). Now to show you the cover...

Isn't it pretty?! I love it. It's very underwater and, if you read the book, you get way this image was used... The author, Lani Woodland, helped create the cover to her own book (me? Jealous? Never!) and she blogs about what happened and how the cover was created. Click here if you want to read it.

Anyway, what do you think about this cover? I have NO IDEA if this book will ever make it to UK bookshelves. And I keep seeing/wanting it. Maybe it's time for a bit of online shopping...
