Friday Finds (4)


Because I Am Furniture by: Thalia Chaltas

This cover is amazing. I tend to not like covers that feature real people because I like to be able to picture them myself without any image influence, so I love how they just used a silhouette. I also really like the title since the book is about abuse.



Once was Lost by: Sara Zarr

This is the second book by Sara Zarr on my Friday Finds list. I just really love her covers, the are so simple and yet so elegant and original. The storyline also looks very appealing.




Divorced, Beheaded, Died... by: Kevin Flude

I LOVE non-fiction (being a history major made this happen) and I love European history, so a non-fiction book about the monarchs of Britain is a perfect fit.
Plus? The cover features the same crown as my header ;)
Downside? I have to wait until September 17th :(


Did you find anything interesting this week?

Whoo, I agree, those first two covers are gold. And how neat that the third book features "your" crown!

Yeah when you search for basic images of crowns online there are only like 3 different ones ;)

avisannschild said...

I must admit, though, that I didn't notice the tweaking you've done to your site!

avisannschild said...

I meant to add, it's beautiful either way!

♔ jessica.marie said...

lol, Thanks!

I was actually just trying to tweak it a little bit, but not enough that it would be a HUGE difference. I made the background myself this time, so I wouldn't be using someone else's work and I wanted it to basically look the same :D

I never thought about how using a silhouette for a cover could be an advantage like that. :)
