Cover Comparisons: Flower Featured

I’ve done similar posts in the past that list similar covers based around a theme.  I don’t remember which blog was hosting that and haven’t seen it recently, so I thought I’d share a spring-related theme.  Covers that feature a flower or flowers.  So not just covers that have flowers on them, but the ones that are primarily covered in a flower or flowers.  This has been so much fun to search for, and I loved to see some of your flower covers in genres I haven’t covered or might have missed 🙂

Book Haul: February 4-10, 2018

This last week was a good week for books!  So many trades came in, a small order from Book Outlet (most of it was for my new Secret Sister this round!), and a couple new ones from work.  And I’m still super behind on my TBR.  Go figure 🙂

The books on the left are from Book Outlet.  The ones on the right are from a trade.  These covers just drew me in.

Here’s the new books that I picked up at work.  Dreadful Young Ladies is a soon-to-be-released anthology full of great authors.  And Sarah Beth Durst’s new December 2018 release promises to be amazing.  And then there’s a final copy of The Rogue Queen.

And here’s the last of the trades I received this week.  I’m extremely excited for Clean Sweep!  It will probably be my next listen at work when I finish up Godsgrave, which I’m loving.

Have you read any of these yet?  What am I in for?

Top Ten Tuesday: Go To Recommendations

After realizing I hadn’t made a Top Ten list in some time, I decided to make one featuring my 10 favorite go-to recommendations for books/series/authors.  You’ll see why I couldn’t just settle on one category once you read the list, but these seem to be my favorite recommendation pile for whenever a friend, family member, or random internet person asks for cool new stuff to read.  It does change over time as new books and authors get released and I read backlog titles, but I tend to shout about these the most right now.
