For this prompt, I decided to go with Landline by Rainbow Rowell where Georgie McCool is a TV writer. I don’t think I would want to write for Georgie’s TV show specifically, but I think it would be cool to write for TV.

Starting tomorrow, I, Lauren, will be your host. So please, join the party and join the Goodreads group. The September themes have been posted in the Goodreads.
But this week’s theme is a book by your favorite author. I personally think I am more inclined to have favorite books than I am to have favorite authors, so I am going to go with Audrey Niffenegger’s Her Fearful Symmetry.
This is a book I recommend to everyone, I am eagerly awaiting the author’s next project, and I cannot wait to show you guys the covers.

Book Traveling Thursdays // A Book That’s Worth the Hype

Book Traveling Thursdays - A Hyped Book That Was Totally Worth ItBook Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world.

This week’s theme is “a book that was worth the hype” and for me, that was definitely Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley.  It may be because I am a dog person, but I think this book is very heartfelt.

You don’t need to be a dog lover to like this book, it’s really just a great story, and if you haven’t checked it out I highly recommend it.

Book Traveling Thursdays // Any Book You Want

Book Traveling Thursdays - Blogger's Choice

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world.

This week’s theme is “any book you want,” and I chose We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson. This was a book I originally read in college when I was working on my thesis about female friendships in Gothic Literature.

Book Traveling Thursdays // A Book Every Book Lover Should Read

Book Traveling Thursdays - A Book Every Book Lover Should Read

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world.

This week’s theme is “a book that every book lover should read.” For this prompt, I chose Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. I remember reading this book in late middle school or early high school and it made a lasting impression on me, and I think all age groups can get a lot out of it.

I think my key takeaway, both then and as an adult looking back on the book, is to embrace what makes us different and to not let anyone squash that part of us because it’s strange and makes them uncomfortable.

Now, onto the covers.

Book Traveling Thursdays // First Book in a Series You Hope to Start Soon

Book Traveling Thursdays - First Book In a Series

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world.

This week’s theme is “the first book in a series you hope to start soon.”

I chose Annihilation by Jeff VenderMeer. It’s the first novel in the Southern Reach trilogy, about the twelfth expedition into Area X. The group, composed of four women are tasked with mapping the terrain and recording all their observations of themselves and one another.

It sounds like a promising first book in this series that has a bit of a sci-fi take to it, and I feel like it might be right up my alley. So, I am hoping to actually move this to the top of my TBR list next month.

Now, onto the covers!

Book Traveling Thursdays // A Victim of a Too Big TBR Pile

Book Traveling Thursdays - A Victim of Your Huge TBR Pile

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world.

This weeks theme is a book that you still want to read this year that has fallen victim to your too-big to-be-read pile.

For this prompt I chose Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. I had the best intentions when I went on vacation last October to finally read this. The problem was there was lots of wind and the paperback pages kept flying around so I opted for my e-reader and digital galleys instead.

But, I still want to read this book, so…onto the covers!

Book Traveling Thursdays // Throwback Edition

Book Traveling Thursdays - Throwback Thursday

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world.

This weeks theme is #ThrowbackThursday. We’re revisiting books we read years ago, and taking a look at their covers.

For this prompt, I chose The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly. I read this book back in 2010, I think, after it had been sitting on my shelf for a while. At the time, I was in college, working in a bakery on vacation, and I had no idea what the big deal was about a new iPhone.

When I picked up The Book of Lost Things, I knew that it was a fantasy story, about a boy who falls into a world like his own during World War II, that’s populated by monsters and heroes as he goes on a quest to save his half-brother.

I remember really liking the book and thinking it was a very original concept, and you have to remember, this was before Once Upon a Time became a thing.

Now, onto the covers.
