Thursday's Discussion: Cover Changes


Cover Changes


Yay or Nay? 

Cover Changes are something that we are used to by now. They happen, even when we hate it. We may not like the new covers or we may love them. What really gets us though is the mismatching covers. I hate when my covers don't match. It drives me insane and even if I love the series, I will hide that book in my closet with the books that I don't like as much. 


Now let's jump into the new Ember in the Ashes covers. I know a lot of people just don't like them because they think that they look cartoonish or that people on the cover is so overdone. They love the original covers and are now upset that it won't match. 


I actually like the new covers and I know the reason they changed them was to give more POC book colors. Representation. Which is a good thing for people who want to see people like them on book covers. I personally love the new covers and my God, Laia is stunning! Also her hair is just goals. I want long flowing hair like that. 

But putting aside the fact that I do in fact love these new covers. They won't be printed in hardcover and I really don't like paperbacks as they aren't as durable. Also I sold my signed copy of a Torch Against the Night just so I could have matching covers. This also means I will be late reading A Reaper at the Gates because my book format must match. I will now have them all in paperback. 

So I get why people hate cover changes. Some are just horrible. Like for the Lux series, I hated those cover changes. Just ugh. What were they thinking with those? 

Then there are the ones like An Ember in the Ashes and I love those cover changes. It just sucks to have to go out and buy the books (again) for matching covers. 

So my question is this: do you care about matching covers? What do you think of the new An Ember in the Ashes covers?

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end in the face of pressure and threats from the CEO and her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions,

Short Update + The Stand-In Book Review

I've been lurking around your blogs for a few hours today and trying to catch up but I doubt I will. I've just missed so much! Sorry!  Today, I'm feeling a little bit better so I thought I would update you guys, since I've not blogged any in two weeks. The posts you've seen since then are just ones that I had scheduled for a while. I'm on the hunt for an anxiety medicine and had a really bad reaction to one my doctor put me on. I'm currently on steroids for a week to help that reaction.  Also, my grandma passed away recently and I've been trying to deal with that and help my family. They are really having it rough right now and it's been killing me trying to help them.  Then there's stuff with my kiddo. So yeah, I've been gone for a bit and dealing with things. I'm really hoping to get straightened out and get back to normal because this has been a sucky time.  Onto something bookish! I did manage to finish a book before everything kinda
