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.

Top Ten Tuesday: Fall 2022 Releases I’m Excited For

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 “Books On My Fall 2022 To-Read List.” Fall is always packed with book releases and this year is no different. I am pretty booked (no pun intended) when it comes to reading for the next couple of months, so I probably won’t get to many of these. But I am still really excited for them and am hoping I can at least get to a few before the year is out. Covers linked to Goodreads.
