Last time I participated in a Top Ten Tuesday book cover freebie, I focused on favourite cover illustrations/artists, primarily of english-language editions. This time I’d like to share a few of my favourite illustrated covers from translated editions!
This week on Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl): The Ten Most Recent Additions to My Bookshelf. Nine of these ten are from my very generous Christmas gift card haul.
This week on Top Ten Tuesday: Books I loved with fewer than 2000 ratings on Goodreads. I rated all of these 4 or 5 stars at the time of reading.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is The Ten Most Recent Additions to My To-Read List, which should have been a simple topic… except that my TBR is currently a rat’s nest spread across Goodreads, several spreadsheets for brainstorming/tracking this year’s reading challenges, Libby’s tag/hold system, and physical shelves.
It’s been a while, but this week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt (now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is favourite book quotes, and I couldn’t resist. Here are a few of my all-time favourites!
Dill has had to wrestle with vipers his whole life at home, as the only son of a Pentecostal minister who urges him to handle poisonous rattlesnakes, and at school, where he faces down bullies who target him for his father’s extreme faith and very public fall from grace.
Beautiful as Aphrodite, strong as Hercules, wise as Athena, and swift as Mercury, Wonder Woman is the most popular female comic book hero of all time.
This week’s prompt is cover theme freebie – anything about covers. I’m a sucker for beautiful cover art, so I’ll be taking this opportunity to show off ten of my favourite book cover illustrations (plus two comic covers), with links to their respective artists’ websites so you can check out more of their gorgeous work!
Another Top Ten Tuesday prompt from The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s prompt is the flip side of last week’s: Top Ten Things That Will Make Me Instantly Not Want To Read A Book.
Not much progress to report on the reading front; we had beautiful almost-spring weather this week, so I emerged like a bear from a long hibernation and stumbled around outside while it lasted, doing very little reading but quite a lot of yard work.
