Top Ten Tuesday: Characters on Covers Interacting with Titles

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Typographic Book Covers.” I wasn’t sure what to do with this topic. I was going to go with favorite title fonts or covers with prominent titles, but wasn’t really feeling either of those. Then it occurred to me, one of my favorite things to see on book covers is characters interacting with the title of a book. I feel like it subtly prepares the reader for an immersive and fun experience. What I didn’t realize is there aren’t quite as many as I thought there were, so I had to interpret “interacting” loosely for this topic to work and also had to include a couple of TBR books. Covers linked to Goodreads.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Witchful Thinking by Celestine Martin

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa @ Wishful Endings where bloggers share which upcoming releases they’re most looking forward to. Join us every Wednesday and watch your TBR list multiply.

I was on the look out for some new romance novels to add to my TBR recently and came across a lot of really tempting novels. I have a full roster of reading material the next month and a half, but I am contemplating a fantasy/romance centered November. One book that really stood out on my search was Celestine Martin’s upcoming release, Witchful Thinking, which I could not resist adding to my TBR. It sounds like it has just the right blend of magic and romance. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

      “Love is the trickiest spell of all.
      Lucinda Caraway loves living in Freya Grove, the mystic seaside town where charms, hexes, and magical beings of all kinds are the norm. She spends her days teaching high school history and her nights reading tea leaves and tending to her conjure garden. It’s a good life . . . but she can’t stop wishing for more.
      Until one night, that wish turns into a spell, and suddenly Lucy can’t say no. Not to a public karaoke performance. Not to running a 10K. And, most alarmingly, not to her high school crush, Alexander Dwyer, who needs her help unjinxing his new house—which just happens to be right across the street from hers.
      Alex has spent the last ten years traveling the world on adventures Lucy has only ever dreamed of, and he’s planning to leave again as soon as his house is safe to sell. But until Lucy can unhex herself, she and Alex are stuck together. And with so much magic in the air, maybe the next spell Lucy casts will be the one that convinces him to stay.”
