Chat About Covers: Eleanor (The Books of the Five)

Chat About Covers: Eleanor (The Books of the Five)

We judge the style, the color and font choices, and just the overall look. That might not keep us from reading the book, but we do still judge. Here we go with more floating shapes. I typically don’t like random floating objects, especially faces, but here it kind of works in a way (just not enough). They are arranged along the circle and kind of do sell the whole elements vibe…. Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Favorite Gifts to Characters in Books

  Let’s chat about the gifts our book characters have given to another  Julie: It is pretty awesome when characters give each other gifts, and doesn’t it make you wish you could have that gift too? Here are a couple of awesome gifts in the Harry Potter world. The Invisibility Cloak. Want! The best gift ever, right? Makes you realize Harry will be something special if Dumbledore himself gives him the most unique gift ever. What about the Firebolt? Thanks Uncle Sirius for the best flying broom. Want a full list? I found this post that lists the good and silly/evil… Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Why has reviewing gotten so hard?

Chat Between Chapters: Why has reviewing gotten so hard?

  Why has reviewing books gotten so hard?  Julie: It feels like the longer we are book bloggers, the harder it is to write reviews.

I don’t want to give stuff away from the plot, but that’s really what is different, and what… Read more »
