We've all talked before about how important it is not to judge a book by it's cover ... and yet we go ahead and do it anyway. Those bold beautiful covers that make them stand out of a shelf and encourage us to investigate a bit closer.
What fictional places have you always longed to go to? Teenage me loved all these places and I still can't wait to go. Send me my letter, let a monster attack me, let me become a spy. I'll even die a honourable death to get myself into Valhalla.
I was hesitant about doing this topic today. I wasn't sure where to even begin.
But my parents always taught me to start at the beginning and work your way forward.
A new month, means a new topic and this month's topic is entirely inspired by Viper by Bex Hogan. I own the book, but I haven't read it yet. I think I started when I bought it but I need to read it. All the posts this month might inspire me to pick it up again.
This week's topic is places in books I'd like to live. I suffer from some severe wanderlust at times and I love to travel but I also have dreams of living in one city for a few years before moving on to the next one and traveling round the world slowly and absorbing in all the sights and sounds of the world, so you can imagine that this topic fits right up my street.
I hope that you've all had a good week. Things have been a bit up and down this week so when I remembered that this week's #SixForSunday post was blue and green books I decided to go with just the blue but to include some books (or blurbs of books) that really make me smile.
I've been thinking about this post a lot and I've been brainstorming it, trying to get it right so I hope that I've got a good list here and that you find these book titles at least amusing.
I love to travel!
I am constantly dreaming of all the places I'll go to and book help me make that list ever longer. Here are a few of my travel books.
I don't generally do a TBR and though I did do a mini one in my February wrap up I don't want to jinx myself too much by doing another one so I'm doing a want to read eventually list of all the latest releases that I haven't had chance to read yet.
I don't know why I always find it so brilliant when I read books set in the UK, but I suppose it must be because I'm so used to reading books that are set in America that when I open a book that I didn't expect to be set in the uk and it is, I am almost bowled other. I am so excited to see how the author has represented my country.
