Random Thoughts: Awesome Book Covers-- Fairytales

How rotten would I be if I didn't do this again? =) I think this will be my new weekly Sunday post. (You're welcome.)

I'm finding it strangely theraputic to look through Pinterest for pictures that might make great book covers. Of course, it's also making me covet these beautiful dresses!

I thought these pictures really capture the essence of fairytales. And of course, my over active imagination is spinning away thinking about the would-be story behind each of them.

The Frog Prince:

12 Dancing Princesses:

  1. The last three are "Fairer-Than-a-Fairy" (can be found at this link if you are unfamiliar with it: http://www.mythfolklore.net/andrewlang/029.htm), "The Impossible Enchantment" (http://www.mythfolklore.net/andrewlang/219.htm) and "The Snow Queen."

    Lovely pictures ... and I can see most of them being cover art for the Fairy Tales you chose, although the "12 Dancing Princesses" one could probably work for "Sleeping Beauty" as well.

  2. Oh! I just thought of a better Fairy Tale for the first of the last three pictures: The Evil Enchanter! (Link here, although it has a different title ... I like the title that it had in the book I fist found it in over this title: http://www.mythfolklore.net/andrewlang/362.htm)

Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America. In an attempt to find a way to exhibit Cassandra’s work at the 1883 World’s Fair, they break into the Inventors Guild—and…

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.
