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.
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.
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'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 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.
A lot of the time I wish I had any job but the one I have. Does anyone else do that? Well, when I'm in a wishing mood I turn to literature. I escape into fantasy and I dream of the jobs that my characters have.
Each week we have a different topic and this week's topic is books that make me laugh out loud. I love to laugh at my books and my family always give me weird looks when I do.
I was a bit unsure how to approach this post. I would say that Green Yellow and Purple are some of the the colours that I would say are the most unusual to find on books. It took a lot of shelf hunting to find ten books that had those colours predominantly on the covers.
I was right on Sunday, Valentines day is well and truly on its way. This week Jana, from the brilliant That Artsy Reader Girl, has set us the topic this week of Valentines Day / Love Freebie.
I didn't realise that I had read so many new authors and I could barely get the list down to fifteen, never mind ten, so this week's list will be a bit longer.
