Day 19 – Favourite book cover (bonus points for posting an image!)
Oh, so many to choose from! Just a few that spring to mind:
by Tansy Rayner Roberts from Twelfth Planet Press
The covers for the JD Robb In Death series that we got here in Australia until the last couple of books (nasty publisher, by the way, to discontinue those!)
And I really love the covers for King Rolen’s Kin (which are similar to the Brett Weeks books, which I also loved the covers for!).
And lots more – I WILL pick up a book and look at it based on its cover, so they are important! I might not buy it, but I will look closer if the cover pops!
Day 18 – Favourite beginning scene in a book
Oh, totally naked boys falling out the sky! Tansy Rayner Roberts’ Power and Majesty. You haven’t read it yet? *looks sternly* GO! 🙂
Day 17 – Favourite story or collection of stories (short stories, novellas, novelettes, etc.)
If I’m being biased, I’d have to say all the books I’ve worked on, because I think they’re all awesome and I’m very proud of them all. But, that’s probably not the done thing 🙂
If I’m being unbiased, then it’s Starry Rift, edited by Jonathan Strahan. Such a pretty book and a great collection of stories!
Day 16 – Favorite poem or collection of poetry
"The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. I just love the life lessons this poem has.
On the homeward trek…
Day 15 – Your “comfort” book
Ooh, tough one. It probably has to be something like the Anita Blake series by Laurell K Hamilton, or the In Death series from JD Robb. Those books tend to migrate to the top of my TBR pile/s and are the books I turn too when I’m overloaded on a particular genre (even when that genre is paranormal romance!!). I can read them anywhere, anytime.
