U.S. vs. U.K. Book Covers

Hello lovelies! How are you? Today’s blog post is all about U.S. and U.K. book covers. I love books covers. Book covers are what initially draws you to that book; to pick it up and read the synopsis. Today I will be comparing U.S. book covers to U.K. book covers to see which one I like better and which one best represents the story better. Please leave me a comment down below letting me know if you typically like U.S. or U.K. covers better. Hope you have a great day. 

Vicious

I would have to pick the U.S. Edition. I just love the bright red background, the silhouette of the man and the bones. It’s so striking. Plus it represents the story more. 

A Long Way To A Small Angry Planet 

I would have to pick the U.S. cover. I love the galaxy sky in the background.    The U.K. cover just looks plain to me. Nothing exciting. 

Release

I 1000% love the U.K. cover more in this one. I love the colours and that the outline of the river makes up two silhouettes. 

On The Come up 

I absolutely love the cover of the U.S. book. I love the artwork. The cover matches the book. The U.K. cover just has a girl on the cover. 

Waking Gods 

The U.S. cover is by far my favourite. I love the galaxy design and the yellows. The U.K. cover just has a face on it. 

I am the Messenger

For this book I prefer the U.K. cover to the U.S. one. I love how on the cover of the U.K. one it has a playing card on it which is an essential part of the story. I also like the typography more on it as well. 

Big Little Lies

I love the striking image of the lollipop on the U.S. cover. The colours and the typography all tie up this cover for me. 

Under Rose Tainted Skies 

The U.S. cover is absolutely gorgeous. I love the water colours. 

The Queen of the Tearling

The U.K. cover of the Queen of the Tearling is my favourite. I love how the crown is a trap and that it is on a pillow ready to bed presented. I feel like the U.S. cover is boring. It just has a photograph of a castle on it. 

The Serpent King 

I love the cover of the U.S. book. I don’t normally like people on book cover, however I think this one does it really well. I am also like the typography. I love how it looks like snake skin and how it is falling off.

All About Reading Books Tag

Hello lovelies! How are you? Today’s blog post. Is all about the All About Reading Books Tag. This tag was originally created by Lines and Life blog. Please leave me a comment down below letting me know what your answers are for this tag. Hope you have a great day. 

1. What do you look for most when you pick up a book?

A) A beautiful writing style

B) A character driven story

C) A plot driven story

I would chose A) A beautifully writing style because I fall in love with the writing first before anything else. 

2. What are your pet peeves in books?

My pet peeves in books are deckled pages and when books have a cover change before the series is completed and cheating in books. 

3. If you could print one quote on your wall, which one would it be?

IMG_3068

If I could print one quote on my wall it would be “ I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.” This quotes is from Little Women. I just love this quote and it’s meaning. 

4. Which genre would you like to explore more?

The genre that I would like to explore the most is non-fiction because I don’t really read a lot of it but I’m fascinated by it at the dame time. 

5. Was there ever a movie adaptation you liked better than the book?

img_2991

Yes there has been a movie adaption that I liked better than the book and that is Stand by Me. The movie Stand by Me was adapted from the short story The Body by Stephen King. The movie just adds much amazing context that the short story doesn’t give. 

6. If one of your favorite books would be adapted or get a new adaptation, which book would it be and which role would you like to play?

img_2978

If one of my favourite books would get a new adaptation it would be Anne of Green Gables. The role I would play is Anne because I love her, I aspire to be her and I also love Gilbert. 

7. A hyped book you wouldn’t recommend at all?

A hyped book that I wouldn’t recommend that all is Throne of Glass. I have so many problems with that book series. 

8. A book that highly influenced your life and way of thinking?

img_2986

A book that highly influenced my life and way of thinking is I am The Messenger. This book restored my faith in humanity. 

9. Are you a fan of re-reading books, do you do it often?

I am a fan of re-reading books and I feel like I do it occasionally. Not as often as I would like to. 

10. Which book title could easily be the title of your life?

IMG_3222

A book title that could easily be the title of my life is My Plain Jane because I don’t live an extraordinary life. 

11. Which book should be required reading for everyone?

IMG_3149

A bool that should be requited reading to everyone is The Perks of Being a Wallflower. This is the type of book that I believe everyone would get something out of and feel connected to the main character in some way.

February Bullet Journal Flip Through and March Set Up

Hello lovelies! How are you. Today’s blog post is all about a look through of my February and march spread of my bullet journal. Please leave mea comment down below letting me know if any of you do a bullet journal and if so is is for books or something else? Hope you have a great day. 

IMG_3192

The first pages that I am going to show you are my February title page and my February TBR page. For my February title page I decided to do hearts because it’s the month of love. I also did a bunch of circles around the word February because I didn’t want it to be just hearts. The next page is my TBR page. So every single month I write down five books that I want to make a priority to read this month. As you can see I didn’t really do well with sticking to my TBR. I read 2 out of the 5 books. 

IMG_3193

The next set of pages are my Haul and Read pages. The haul page is where I list all of the books that I bought in that month and the read page is where I sit all of the books that I read in that month. 

IMG_3194

Pages Read and my March title page are the next set of pages. Pages Read is where I mark down the number of pages I read on the given day. I love the visual appeal of this page. I couldn’t decide on the theme of the title page for March, so I googled Bullet journal theme title page and it showed this paint splatter design and I instantly fell in love with it. I loved how it turned out. 

IMG_3195

The next pages are my TBR page and my haul page. These five books on my TBR page are my main priority this month. Im excited to get to these books. The Haul page is where I will write down the books that I bought this month. 

IMG_3196

The final two pages are my pages read and read page. Pages read page is where I graph the number of pages I read each day. I love to look at my progress at the end of each month. I find it so satisfying. The last page is my read page. This page is where I will write down all of the books that I read this month.
