Below is a quick round up of the books I’ve read during January displayed in covers. My month in review will follow shortly. This month again has been busy and I’ve managed to read ten books. So to my January covers:
I love how you placed the two warmest-colored covers in the middle and in a bigger size than the others: they *do* catch one’s eye, indeed! 🙂
Yeah, I actually went and changes the order specially because I thought those two would look good together. Normally I just collect them and hope for the best! Slapdash – me!!
Ten books is a fantastic number for a busy month! I’m really looking forward to reading Dusk or Dark or Dawn or Day soon, and I’m practically giddy to hear your thoughts on the next Toby Daye novel. 😄
I loved the Toby Daye book and will be starting the next in a week! Loving it.
All of these covers look so good! I like Caraval though quite a bit. Great post! ❤️
Thanks you – the covers are all pretty similar in many respects – some great books amongst them.
Midnight, Dusk, Dawn…lots of “times of the day” in your covers this month 🙂
And a couple dark shades. Gray and Black.
It surprises me every month how the colours of my covers almost seem to be co-ordinated!
I know – sometimes it feels like all the publishers get together and plan these things!
Was Dawn Study worth it? I am have had such a problem getting back into Maria V. Snyder’s stuff after Opal’s little interlude.
My favourites, tbh, were the first three. I wasn’t as keen on the glass study books, they’re entertaining but I think I was just hooked on the characters of Valek and Yelena by then and wanted more. This final three – you could probably read without the Opal interlude – it’s Yelena and Valek so I enjoyed it for that reason and it does bring everything to a good conclusion. I’ve found this to be an entertaining series overall but, yeah, the first three books were my favourite aspects of the series.
I picked up Night Study and had trouble getting into it because Opal and her husband are around. I really despise that relationship. I’m not a big fan of the reformed abuser angle.
What a lovely visual roundup, Lynn:).
I find it unusual each month that the covers tend to almost have similar colour themes – it’s quite bizarre in a way.
And that’s the advantage of giving your cover-based roundup – you can see these trends. And it certainly looks lovely!
Except for the two large covers in the middle, they are mainly dark covers perhaps you’ve been unconsciously matching our dark. cold weather 😛
That must be what it is!
