Ten types of common thriller book covers! Also, #aesthetics

Screen Shot 2017-09-19 at 7.41.29 PM

Recently I came across a few book covers that looked so similar that I ended up getting confused about which book was which! Inspired by my lovely friend Cait from PaperFury, who recently wrote a post on different types of YA covers, I decided to run with her idea and categorize some popular trends I see with thriller/mystery book covers!

Confession time: book series I liked…but never finished

Screen Shot 2017-07-07 at 3.55.22 PM

Before I get started, let me just say that just under two weeks ago, I spent more than an hour writing this post. I was about to go on vacation, so I wrote the post and set it to publish while I was gone, which it did…however I just realized that it posed a completely blank blog post! WHYYYYY?! I’m so sorry that I just realized that the previous post was blank THE ENTIRE TIME, but I’m going to attempt to re-write the post (ahh) for you today!

That all aside, I am notoriously bad at finishing series of books, even when I like the first books! I attribute it to three things. First, I sometimes worry that the final book in a series will be a letdown, as has happened to me so many times! Second, I tend to get distracted with other books, so I’ll move to something else with the intention of going back to the series, and then I just never do. Third, I read a series that isn’t finished, and by the time the next book in the series has been published, I forgot a lot of what happened in the first books and need to re-read them before I can continue the series, and it just never happens. I swear I have great intentions of finishing all of the series listed below, but we’ll see what happens!

Mini Reviews – quick reviews on 8 books!

Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 12.00.47 PM

Occasionally Cait over at Paper Fury posts mini-reviews on her blog, and I’ve always loved the idea. Every now and then, I don’t feel like writing a full review on a book, so I’ll post some quick thoughts on Goodreads.

Lately, I’ve had a string of “meh” books that I didn’t love but didn’t hate, but I just couldn’t muster up the effort of writing full reviews on them. Instead, I’m going to take a page from Cait’s book and share some mini reviews on 8 different books I’ve read recently!
