If book covers had a run at Fashion Week

The internet is abuzz with images from the various Fashion Weeks right now. I cannot even get on Pinterest without seeing rolled jeans and fancy shoes, or outfits so outlandish no sane person would dare wear. (Although I am liking Carrie Underwood's new yoga line, Calia. That's MY kind of style.)

Fashion comes and goes for me. Some trends I embrace, many others I just wrinkle my nose at. I live in Florida; leather anything will never happen. But what I do love is a pretty book cover. I can't help it. If I walk by a window display of books, my eye is instantly drawn to the colors and textures. Add some sparkle and I'm steaming up the window as I stare.

So what if book covers had a run at Fashion Week? What might we see sauntering down the cat walk?


Some of the hot trends of today have already been all over books covers. All white attire? We've got that covered...

The One (The Selection, #3)   A Wounded Name




All black? Been there and done that too.










      Passion (Fallen, #3) Some Boys   




Even the winter florals are not new to us. 

Some Quiet Place (Some Quiet Place, #1)




We even made CAPES a thing before Paris. 


The Pledge (The Pledge, #1)  Gathering Darkness (Falling Kingdoms, #3)




Leather and fur? Old news. 


Ice  Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow  Shadow Sight (Ivy Granger, #1)




So maybe the designers and trend setters have just been stalking the shelves for inspiration all this time?

  3. That Some Quiet Place cover is eerie and gorgeous at the same time! Love it! Great post! Fashion is pretty much everywhere even in books that don't have featured clothing on the covers! ;D

  5. I recommend Ice. It isn't my favorite by Sarah Beth Durst, but she did a great job with it.

My 13 reasons why you should avoid Netflix's 13 Reasons Why

If you subscribe to Netflix, you should know about the book to film adaptation of Jay Asher's novel, Thirteen Reasons Why. I remember reading the book years ago on a recommendation, and fell in love with the story. It took me through so many emotions as I read Hannah's story. You can see my thoughts on the novel here, because this post isn't about the novel per se.

This post is about what bothered me about Netflix's attempt at capturing this story. So here goes, my 13 reasons why I shouldn't have watched "Thirteen Reasons Why" on Netflix.

1. The language. My goodness, the language. I understand that teenagers curse worse than sailors in many situations, but if you aren't bothered by the ridiculous use of the f bomb as both an adjective, verb, and general space filler-- there is a problem. I stopped counting in one episode its use because I reached 20 before the half way point. Twenty! I don't think they even bothered to come up with other words. …

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. 

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book


Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…
