Book Review, Monthly Roundup

October Round Up.

Well another month is over and it’s time for me to do my October round up. I managed to read 4 books and reviewed 6 books with 2 more reviews to write. 

Again this month I have added a couple of new features, that I hope you will also enjoy reading. I came up with them while I have slowly been compiling my book data for the years end round up and thought why wait till the New Year to start my new additions.

So what are these new additions? The new additions are my favourite book covers out of four categories of books that I download each month.

  1. Book Blitz Covers
  2. Book Blitz Cover Reveals
  3. NetGalley ARC Covers & lastly
  4. BookBud Free Book Covers

Book covers are really important to me as I’m also sure they are to you. If I don’t like the look of the books cover I really tend not to read the book. Once I decide I like the book cover I will then go on to read the synopsis which then helps me decide if I’d like to read the book or not.

This Months Favourite Book Covers:

October’s Favourite Book Blitz Cover
When Love Simply Is
October’s Favourite NetGalley Cover
Christmas at Rachel’s Pudding Pantry
October’s Favourite Cover Reveal
The Kingdom of Crowns & Glory
October’s Favourite BookBud Cover
Shanghai Story

 

So the reasons for this months favourite book covers for the four different categories are:

When Love Simply Is: I just love this cover as it reminds me of the old b&w films like Casablanca with Humphrey Bogart & Ingrid Bergman (1942). It just portrays that old romantic feel.

The kingdom of Crowns & Glory: I like this cover as it portrays a fantasy world and it reminds me of the girl in the Ivory Tower from the film The Never Ending Story (1984), which I loved when I was a child.

Christmas at Rachel’s Pudding Pantry: Well I didn’t have much of a choice in book covers from NetGalley this month as this is the only book I was offered in October. Never the less it’s quite a quirky cover.

Shanghai Story: This cover again makes me think of older films too and I don’t know if its the name of the book or if it is the cover its self but it also reminds me of Shanghai Surprise with Madonna and Sean Penn (1986)
