friday fast 5: cover love

IMG_20170725_144617_707I’m really feeling TGIF this week. I’ve been so sick and I finally started feeling better yesterday. I was blogged ahead for almost 2 weeks but that went to shit real fast lol

I did have this little cutie poking his nose in and checking up on me at regular intervals – and then getting irritated that I was taking too long to get better instead of playing…


So anyhoo----back to Friday Fast 5! This week I’m featuring 5 covers that caught my eye. let me know your thoughts in the comments!

    1. It's nice to see covers that aren't so trendy. They are so similar these days that they all blur together after awhile.

    1. That is SO rare for me. I'm a pantser - drafting my post the day before.

      Ironically, it happened when I decided to take a week off from blogging. All of a sudden I wanted to write ALL the posts lol

  14. I love the cover for Children of Blood and Bone -- it's gorgeous! And I think the cover for Strange Practice is great too, especially since it reflects some of the cheeky humour in the story.

  15. Oh those look interesting.

    LOVE a cute pup nose. I painted a picture of my sheltie's nose since she often checked up on me in the same way. Aw I miss her. Hope you are feeling a lot better!

  16. Definitely going with STRANGE PRACTICE as my eye catcher pick of these...though I can certainly see the appeal of the others as well. Thanks for the share and I hope you're feeling better!
