Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2017

Gah, you all know how much I love book covers, so I literally look forward to this post all year. I didn't go quite as crazy as I did last year, but I suppose I went crazy enough. But hey, it's the end of the year! And covers are pretty to look at! And people worked hard to make these! So the more, the merrier, I say. But, though I love all of these, I did pick ten to discuss and managed to...
 

Cover Characteristics: Black, White, & Orange Book Covers

I love covers that are black and white with just one true color because it really makes that one color POP. And even though these covers can be enjoyed year-round, what better to time to share some awesome black, white, and orange book covers than October? No better time, I think. So here some great, orange-filled book...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Impeccably Dressed Characters

You know what I learned about myself while making this post? I apparently have a thing for layers. I also have a thing for corsets, but I already knew that. Oddly enough though, I never dress anything like the way the characters on these covers dress. Seriously, basic Kristen style is solid colored shorts, a solid colored tank top, t-shirt, or long sleeved shirt, and a scarf through my belt...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Clocks

Clocks turned out to be a pretty good topic for book covers! There's something kinda pretty about clocks too. Actually, speaking of clocks, I happen to have this really awesome one that I love (the picture is an Amazon affiliate link in case anyone else also wants to own the same awesome...
 

Bookish Musings: Consistency in Series Book Covers

I love book series. I also love book covers. Therefore it stands to reason that I would love the covers for series. And I do... when they're consistent. But there are a lot of little (and sometimes big) things that irk me when it comes to the covers on different books in a series, so I thought, why not make it a...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Birds (2)

I did birds as a topic once before, but I've decided to do it again! (Hence the number two in the title.) What can I say, it was just a great topic, and there are so many book covers out there with birds on them that I wanted to share some more of them! By the way, fun fact since most of these cover seem to have crows, did you know crows remember human faces? In other words, don't mess with...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Spaceships/UFOs

Technically the topic this week is UFOs, but really whether something is a UFO or not is relative, right? I mean, to the aliens in the UFO, it's actually just a spaceship. Or it could be humans flying around in a ship, or something that's not even a ship, but if someone happens to see it and doesn't know what it is, voila! It becomes a UFO. Yes? This was all just a really long way of saying I'm...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring New York City

When I was a kid, I always wanted to go to New York. I don't know if I'd ever actually want to live there, but I finally got to go there when I was 16 or so, for two days on a family vacation, and yes, I loved it just as much as I thought I would. Unfortunately that's the only time I've ever been. Anyway, New York, it turns out, is an awesome topic for book covers! And, because I'm a...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Elephants

A lot of the covers I found this week aren't my usual type of covers, and I'm pretty sure quite a few of them aren't sci-fi/fantasy, but elephants is just an awesome topic! So I wanted to join in anyway. You know, I always say I have a story for everything, but it turns out I do not have any stories about elephants. I mean, I've read some interesting/funny/awesome things involving elephants in...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Cards

You know what's great about the topic playing cards? They're all red and black, my favorite colors! However, I didn't end up sticking to just playing cards. I couldn't quite tell what some of the cards on covers were and just using playing card covers was limiting, so tarot cards, baseball cards---really any palm-sized cards---I also deemed appropriate. Speaking of cards though, it has been a...
