Oh wow. It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? I’m back, at least for this week, and I just wanted to spread some more Eleanor & Park love. As if I didn’t spread enough of it back in August of last year, right? If you’ve posted about E&P on Twitter and I haven’t gone all YAAAAY … Continue reading »


St. Louis is a beauty, no? I wasn’t quite sure where to put this post, to be honest. I normally talk cover art here at TCG, my Tumblr isn’t meant for holding more than 100 words, and I sure wasn’t going to start another new personal blog. So I decided to post here. Feel free … Continue reading »


I love finding parents for YA cover babies. It’s like the fun version of genealogy, y’all! Except without trying to figure out which people were the crazy aunts and uncles. For example, if Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84 & Carrie Harris’ Bad Taste in Boys had a cryonically frozen teenage daughter, she’d look just like this!


This post’s a short one but a good one, I promise. I’m trying my best not to use all capital letters in this post, so I’m going to go ahead and cut to the chase.

In order to get to know my readership a little bit better, I’ve created the little poll below. If you’ve got .36 seconds to spare, … Continue reading »

Hello there, fellow cover-lovin’ friends. It’s been a bit quiet here lately, and for various personal reasons, but I haven’t forgotten about you. And I certainly haven’t forgotten about this blog that I love so much. I actually have been writing, except it’s been elsewhere, actually. I’ve managed to trick convince two people that I actually … Continue reading »


I haven’t done many cover reveals on the blog. To date, I’ve only done one, actually. So I was a little more than excited to do my second one! I know what you’re thinking. It’s another cover with not one, not two, but three faces. And faces on covers are certainly not my thing, right? … Continue reading »

I’ve got my big headings, loud colors and template already picked out for my cover! Now I just need to write a book, obviously.


Don’t you just love it when a book’s outsides are a positive little reflection of how awesome its insides are? Let’s just call this little post what it is — a PSA/book jacket porn post dedicated to a few good books I’ve read in the past few months: Wonder by RJ Palacio and Me and Earl and … Continue reading »
