Chat About Covers: the Twelfth Keeper

Chat About Covers: the Twelfth Keeper

  We’re starting a new feature here on Chapter Break called Chat About Covers. ‘Cause you know we all judge books by covers, whether we admit it or not. 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.   I quite like this cover. I love the magical feel of the blue-green coloring. The underwater, or is it in the sky, feel to it is lovely. The billowing dress, always a fan. I also like the fonts. The title font is… Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Favorite/Least Favorite Books of 2016

Chat Between Chapters: Favorite/Least Favorite Books of 2016

Let’s chat about our 2016 best or worst lists. What books were your favorite? Which were… not so much?  Julie: Thanks to Audible, I have read over 60 books this year! These are the books that are on my top reads list for 2016. I love the whole Charley Davidson series, and the audio narrator is fantastic! I enjoyed White Raven and that it was a slightly different take on the paranormal genre. I enjoy books with unque “creatures”. I’m actually quite addicted to the whole series.

Chat Between Chapters: Special Snowflakes

Chat Between Chapters: Special Snowflakes

 Special Snowflakes – we see this trope a lot in books. Let’s give them a chat day.  Julie: From Wiktionary: The conviction that one is, in some way, special and should therefore be treated differently than others. Usually I’m not a fan of special snowflakes, because why? Why does that one specific person have to be so special? Why that person? I’ve griped about this in my wishlist of features in a new series post, because when characters don’t know what they are for forever in a book I get so irritated. And when they find out, and deny it. Because… Read more »

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.   I’m quite a bit mixed up about this cover. I see it a lot because it is constantly coming up as a free book.  But the cover? Well let’s have a go at it. The top half of the cover is actually… Read more »
