Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring TVs

Since I completely failed at this weeks Cover Characteristics, I will make up for it by once again regaling you with a related fun fact. You know that TB test you get every so often as a kid to make sure you don't have tuberculosis? Well no one actually explained to me what it was. So, when I was little, I thought it was a TV test that tested if you were watching too much TV. Luckily I always...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Airplanes

Airplanes was a hard topic for me to find covers for. There are a lot of war, historical, adventure, rescue mission type cover, but those aren't my kinda books, so I wanted something different. I ended up with a really colorful bunch somehow, and they're all actually pretty diverse. So airplanes ended up being a fun topic for this week in the...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Cover featuring Suitcases

Isn't it funny how certain objects and topics are more common in certain genres? It seems that most book covers with suitcases and purses are chick lit and contemporary. Occasionally they're hopeful, inspiring, touching stories about a man's life and/or marriage going down the drain and how he changes as he picks himself back up in a genre that I'm not sure of (seriously, this describes two of my...
 

Book Review: The One (The Selection Book 3) by Kiera Cass

Competition is getting fiercer than ever for Maxon's hand, and rebel attacks are getting more dangerous and more frequent. With pressure building, America struggles not only to make her final decision about whether she wants to spend her life with Aspen or Maxon but also to do what's right for herself, her loved ones, and her...
 

Book Review: The Elite (The Selection Book 2) by Kiera Cass

The competition is down to only six girls, the Elite, and America is still one of them, but she's still not sure she wants the crown or Maxon himself, and, as their relationship gets rockier, she's not even sure he wants her. But with Aspen still on her mind and in her heart, she knows she's going to have a big choice to make...
 

Book Review: The Selection (The Selection Book 1) by Kiera Cass

When America, a Five in her world where castes are everything and her caste often struggles to stay out of poverty, gets chosen for a chance to win the prince's hand in marriage, she's not just surprised, she's miserable because she already has her future planned out. But, with treason being her only other option, she leaves behind the guy she loves to compete with 34 other girls for a chance...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Water

So this week's topic is water. Water? WATER? WATER??? Do you even know what this topic did to me?! There are even more book covers with water than there are with keys! There are covers with boats and mermaids and beaches and storms and my poor indecision-addled mind couldn't take it! Then I got all perfectionist about how cool it was that they were almost all blue, but the shades of blue didn't...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Keys

Guys, I think I have a problem. I think I'm just going to officially up my Cover Characteristics book choices to ten because choosing five? I can't do it, I tell you, I can't do it! Every single time I think to myself, I'm never even going to be able to find five covers, and then I end up with like thirty tabs of possible covers open at once plus five more of books I found when I inevitably got...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Chess Pieces

I've never played chess in my life, but I think I'm well on my way to learning thanks to this week's topic! Yeah right, I don't even like checkers. And don't get me started on Chinese checkers. Anyway, back to the topic of the post. I kind of, might've, possibly ended up choosing ten covers again. If you're reading my blog you're gonna find out sooner or later that I'm horribly indecisive, and...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Toys

Ok, so, the meme guidelines suggest five books, and, when I first started looking, I didn't even think I was going to be able to find that many. It's a lot harder to find book covers with toys than you would think. Seriously, I had a book saved with a hedge maze on the cover because I was desperate and mazes are like toys, right? Right?! But then I searched "dolls" in the kindle store, and I kind...
