Chat About Covers: Spinning Time

Chat About Covers: Spinning Time

  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’ve got an overlay of a girl walking on water?  Some weird building thingy. Things that look like clockwork.  A planet? Ayaiyai! Ok, I do like the font. It like the gold, and the curvy… Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Books that should have had a sequel

 Let’s chat about those books that should have had a sequel, but for some reason did not.  Julie: I tend to read a lot of series, or very tied up standalone books that really can’t call for a sequel anyway.

There’s a ton more that can be done in this world following Izzy and I’d certainly read some more by this author. Also, Eleanor and Park could really use some closure.     Lynn:… Read more »
