“NO IDEAS BUT IN THINGS”
A BOOK COVER THAT PERFECTLY EXPRESSES THE NOVEL INSIDE IT

Emergency Contact is basically about two people texting each other and not communicating face-to-face, so the cover is pretty fitting.

“SUGARY SWEET”
A CUTE COVER THAT IS SO FLUFFY YOU WANT TO GIVE IT A HUG

It has to be Running With Lions by Julian Winters. Look at this team. Look at what good friends they are. I want to hug all of them. It’s possible that I’m very emotional right now, but oh my god. Look at them.

“THE SIMPLE AESTHETIC”
A BOOK COVER THAT STUNS WITH THE MOST MINIMALISTIC OF DESIGN

I don’t know if I’d really call the cover of We Are the Ants “the most minimalistic,” but there’s definitely not a ton going on here and I really love it.

“COVER ENVY”
A BOOK COVER YOU WISH YOU HAD ON YOUR SHELVES, BUT DON’T YET

It will surprise literally nobody in the blogging universe that I’m choosing What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera. I have been shouting about this book for months. I want to frame its cover and hang it on my wall. I haven’t even read it and I love it so much already.

“TRAVELING ABROAD”
A BOOK COVER FEATURING A COUNTRY OUTSIDE OF YOUR OWN

I don’t know what it is about the cover for Darius the Great Is Not Okay but I love it so much.

“THE COLOR WHEEL”
A COVER THAT SHOWCASES ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE COLORS

Not only is The Kiss Quotient one of my favorite books of 2018, it’s also my favorite color. ❤

“SWITCHING GEARS”
A COVER CHANGE YOU ABSOLUTELY ADORE

There’s nothing necessarily wrong with the original cover for Throne of Glass, but I feel like the redesigned cover is much more fitting for Celaena’s personality. By the way, I still need to read the second book and all of the other books in the series before Kingdom of Ash comes out this fall.

“AND THE WINNER IS…”
WHICH BOOK COVER MENTIONED ABOVE IS YOUR FAVORITE?

WHAT IF IT’S US. Like I said, I want to frame it and hang it up in my house.

Top Ten Tuesday: Nonfiction books I want to read

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s theme is a back-to-school freebie, and I decided to go with ten non-fiction books I want to read. I was not the biggest fan of non-fiction when I was in college. I’d slog through these huge linguistics texts which were really interesting but also really dense (and of course I always had to take like two lit classes as electives every semester just to make things difficult for myself) and sometimes I’d have to slog through a big non-fiction book written in Spanish, which was just even better. I learned a lot, I got my degree, I hated it. I have a bigger appreciation for non-fiction now that I read it voluntarily.

So. Anyway. Here are ten non-fiction books that I really want to read!

  • On Tyranny by Timothy Snyder | a recommendation from Adam @ Roof Beam Reader!
  • The Romanovs by Simon Sebag Montefiore | even though it’ll take me six years to read it
  • Russian Roulette by Michael Isikoff & David Corn | I can honestly never read enough books about this topic
  • The Brave Athlete by Simon Marshall & Lesley Paterson | I am not an athlete in any way, shape, or form, but someone needs to tell me how to calm the fuck down, so it might as well be this book
  • The Radium Girls by Kate Moore | I’ve heard so much about this book and I really want to read it!
  • Enlightenment Now by Steven Pinker | I want to read this book, but I’m also a little scared because the last Steven Pinker book I read took me forever to get through
