Top Ten Tuesday: Cover Redesigns I Loved or Hated

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is:

Cover Redesigns I Loved or Hated

Loved

Penny Reid’s Knitting in the City Series:









I don’t like how everyone is changing to cartoon covers, but I do feel these ones represent the series and books better.

I Like Both

Elle Kennedy’s Off-Campus Series




I like the original abs cover, but the new ones are cute too!

Claire Contreras’s Darkness Series

The new cover is okay, but I definitely prefer the original with the girl on the cover.

Hated

I Can Be A Better You / Bad Mommy

I get the title change, but I really liked the old cover and title.

Staci Hart’s Tonic Series


Staci Hart’s




I like the real people covers so much more.

This week I read Kissing Galileo (Dear Professor, #2), The Ones Who Got Away (The Ones Who Got Away, #1), The One You Can’t Forget (The Ones Who Got Away, #2), and The One You Fight For (The Ones Who Got Away, #3). I would have kept on with that series, but I didn’t realize the fourth book wasn’t already out.

Currently Reading

After reading the emotional The Ones Who Got Away series, I felt like I needed to read something lighter, so I am reading Southern Gentleman (Charleston Heat, #3). I haven’t read any of the other books in this series, but this one is fun so far.

Reading Next

I’m not sure what I am going to read next. I probably won’t get much reading done this upcoming week because my daughter has a soccer tournament this weekend.

Top Ten Tuesday: Settings I’d Like to See More Of (Or At All)

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is:

Settings I’d Like to See More Of (Or At All)


1. Meghan Quinn’s Binghampton

I wouldn’t mind if Meghan Quinn took us back to Binghampton. I miss those characters that place.

2. Jay McLean’s More Than This world

I know Jay McLean has taken us back in the form of the Preston Brothers series, but I would really like to have a Heidi book. I know we’re not getting one, but I can still wish.

3. Emma Mills’ This Adventure Ends world

Only because I need more Frank Sanger. It’s really his world and the other characters just live in it.

4. Tarryn Fisher’s Bad Mommy / I Can Be A Better You world

I need to know what came next…

5. Tijan’s Fallen Crest High world

Nate’s book is coming, but I would take a book about any and all side characters just to stay in this world.

6. Kim Holden’s Bright Side world

I hold these characters so dear that I would take books about any of the side characters just to know how they’re doing now. Keller, especially.

7. Max Monroe’s The Billionaire Bad Boys world

I love this group of friends so much that they could write book after book about them and I would read it.

8. Bowen & Kennedy’s Top Secret world

I just need Annika’s book please. Or for them to write any other book together!

9. Elle Kennedy’s Briar University world

I need Elle Kennedy to write spin off after spin off after spin off for the Off-Campus/ Briar U series.

10. Katie McGarry’s Thunder Road world

There just aren’t enough books in this series. I miss the characters and their world.
