TTT: Book Covers I Would Frame


This week's TTT topic: Book Covers I Would Frame as Pieces of Art

I have actually thought of this a lot. It would be a way to show love for favorite books, and I'm always looking for ways to decorate my bedroom walls. I've never actually done anything beyond think about it of course, but here are some covers I would love to see hanging up in my house.



 Of course. It wouldn't be a list of mine if theses weren't on it. But come on, they are GORGEOUS. Not only is Megan Whalen Turner the best writer there is right now, but she gets amazing covers to go with her writing.

I can stare at the cover of this book for HOURS. It is beautiful. The colors, the detail, how it captures the fairy tale aspect.

 I love the vibrancy in the colors in all the Above World books, but I also love their simplicity and how much they capture of the books in that simplicity.

I love all of the new DWJ covers that have been released in the UK, but those two are probably my favorites. 

I think by my choices you can tell what I don't like on my covers, but is currently the trend.

What about you? Have you ever wanted to frame a book cover as art?

Yes, the new DWJ covers! And I like how we both have Kinuko Craft covers on our lists. :)

I would do a whole wall in Kinuko Craft fairy tale covers. They are all gorgeous.

I love all of these covers! (though I haven't read the Jenn Reese books yet). The covers I actually have on my wall are a Snow White picture book cover that my mother framed in wood shop and a photo of a girl posing as Tinkerbell from a Borders edition of Peter Pan... I wish I had the Dragonsinger prints I remember my parents having in their bedroom when I was young!

Yisssssss MWT yisssssssss! I think the ONLY tiny complain I have about the covers is that Gen doesn't look properly Mediterranean as I picture him. But they're still so, so pretty. Every time I look at my phone case, I sigh happily.

Future Favorite Friday: June 2018

I take the 2nd Friday of every month to highlight some upcoming releases I am looking forward to that I hope are Future Favorites. Feel free to do your own post, just please link back to my blog and tell me about your post in the comments.

Two Naomis was one of my favorite reads of 2016 so I was understandably excited it's getting a sequel. 

In this sequel to Two Naomis, now that Naomi Marie’s mom and Naomi E.’s dad are married, the girls have learned to do a lot of things together, like All-Family Sunday dinners, sixth-grade homework, navigating the subway system by themselves, and visiting their favorite bakeries. Until sixth grade in a new school presents a whole new set of surprises and challenges.

Trusting her gut has worked for Naomi E. all her life, and she figures that it will be an asset to her role as a Peer Mediator—until she realizes how much of the job requires the Art of Compromise, which she’s only just starting to get used to at home.

Naomi Marie is excited about maki…

Lovely War

When I first heard about Lovely War by Julie Berry, I remember thinking, "Whoa, that's ambitious." And it is. The scope and depth of this story with all of its intricacies and thematic elements is massive. Berry manages to hold it all together beautifully. She managed it so beautifully that it is so far my favorite YA read of 2019.

The ecstasies and the wounds of love were Aphrodite's work. Forging passions was what she was born to do. She, too, was a welder, a mistress of fire of a different sort, working in materials more powerful and resistant than carbon and iron. And what did that toil do to her?

In 1942 New York City while men are partying on the eve of shipping off to war, a stunning couple arrives at a hotel in the midst of the revelry and departs for their room followed by an overly enthusiastic bellboy. But none of these figures are as they appear. The couple is Aphrodite and Ares on a secret assignation that turns out to be not so secret as the bellboy is Ap…

Here are my auto-buy authors and their most recent or coming soon release. Also, I got stuck on twelve and couldn't cut it down any further. So it's really Top Twelve Tuesday today. Or Thirteen rather as I sort of combined Emma and Genevieve. (I auto-buy all their individual projects too.)








Who are some authors whose books you buy no matter what?

(I don't know what it says about me that there is only one male author on this list, but I don't dislike whatever it is.)
