TT: The Golden Compass

This week’s Throwback Thursday: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman I’m a day late on this! Oops! What I Love about This Cover:  This cover is abstract and yet intriguing.

TT: Purple Rain

This week’s Throwback Thursday: Purple Rain I know I usually do books, but today seemed fitting to do a Throwback Thursday on Purple Rain. Music is such a large part of my identity that I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the passing of Prince. 2016 is just kicking our asses. Way too many …

Throwback Thursday: Batman

This week’s Throwback Thursday: Batman The Killing Joke What I Love about This Cover:  Women are constantly told to smile. As if we owe it to the world to smile at all times and on command. It was creepy on this cover and in this context, and even creepier after the new Jessica Jones series …

Throwback Thursday: Greywalker

This week’s Throwback Thursday: Greywalker by Kat Richardson What I Love about This Cover:  This cover has a similar grit to it that I’ve seen in Neil Gaiman’s covers. That’s what drew me into the book when I saw it. Also, while she shows a bit of belly, the main character on the cover isn’t …

Throwback Thursday: Passage

This week’s Throwback Thursday: Passage by Connie Willis What I Love about This Cover:  There have been many newer covers of this book made, but this one is still my favorite. This cover gives a very serious clue on it, and you probably won’t see it until you reach the end. Connie’s a sneaky writer …

Throwback Thursday: Daughter of the Empire

This week’s Throwback Thursday: Daughter of the Empire by Raymond E. Feist & Janny Wurts What I Love about This Cover:  This cover isn’t the new one.

Throwback Thursday: Powers That Be

This week’s Throwback Thursday: Powers That Be by my favorite Irish dweller, Anne McCaffrey, and her co-author, the wonderful Elizabeth Anne Scarborough. What I Love about This Cover:  She’s not scantily clad! Yes, I realize this is a cold looking world on the cover (and it is!), but I’ve still seen female characters in chain-mail …

Throwback Thursday: The Wind Singer

This week’s Throwback Thursday: The Wind Singer by William Nicholson. What I Love about This Cover:  This cover is young adult in style, yet artistic enough to draw in adult readers like myself. I love the coloration and how the imagery draws me in. It makes me curious. What I Don’t Love about This Cover: …

Throwback Thursday: American Gods

This week’s Throwback Thursday: American Gods by Neil Gaiman. What I Love about This Cover:  This cover always reminded me of the Lost Highway soundtrack, which came out a few years before this book and had some amazing music on it by David Bowie, Nine Inch Nails/Trent Reznor, Marilyn Manson, and one of my favorite songs …
