Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Hearts

This week's topic is hearts! And if you thought I was really crazy enough to base my post on actual, realistic-looking hearts rather than the cutesy heart shape... you would be correct ;-) Ten points to your Hogwarts House. And also ten points to Ravenclaw because this is my blog and I say so. Anyway, I did use some with cutesy heart shapes, but I also used some with realistic-type hearts...
 

Cover Characteristics: Black, White, and Yellow Book Covers

Ahhhhh this post was so hard. It's been sitting in my drafts forever because I just could not find ten covers I loved that had only black, white, and yellow. I guess yellow on its own is a hard color to work with since there aren't a whole lot of usable shades, and it can be hard to see yellow against a white background. It's also very bright and could end up hurting people's eyes if not used...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Mermaids/Mermen

When I was a kid, there were only two things I constantly pretended to be, and one of them was a mermaid. I used to spread my parents' blue comforter out on their floor and drag myself around on it, pretend it was the ocean. In our little pool, and even in my grandparents' hot tub, I'd pretend I was, well, essentially a mermaid veterinarian, helping all the injured sea creatures. I don't really...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Ships

Fun fact about me: I hate boats. And ships. And canoes. Ok, to be fair, I've never actually been in a canoe, but I'm 99.9% sure I would hate them. I have been on some cruises, and I didn't hate those, but cruises are a special exception because they're basically floating towns with neverending food. Anyway, unless there's ever a zombie apocalypse and the zombies can't swim, I will choose land...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Disability

I've been wanting to do this post for a while since I talk a lot about disability in books on my blog and have the list of sci-fi/fantasy books with disability and everything, but let me tell you, there are NOT a lot of book covers out there that show any sort of visible disability on them. Especially sci-fi/fantasy books, which is what I like to focus on. A lot of disabilities are invisible, and...
 

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...
