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.

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. 

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
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.
