Tomorrow is the "Love It or Hate It" book cover challenge!


  1. AAHHH You meant an actual book shelf!!! DOH! I did my Kindle Book Shelf and posted the cover photo's since I couldn't line spines up.

    Great book choices Vonnie!

    1. That's fine. I'm going to go on over to check it out!

  2. LOVE your rainbow!! The colors are so bright and pretty :D

    This was such a fun challenge :)

    1. Glad you had fun!

      I lucked out with my book covers. I was really happy that the books chosen were bright and dominantly that color.

  3. Hey, Vonnie!!

    You know, I'm having SO much fun with these mini-challenges!! They're GREAT! And I LOVE your rainbow!! It's beautiful! You have chosen your books well, too. I think I have "The Fiery Cross", but haven't read it yet. As for the others, they're all new to me. I'm especially interested in "Dreams of Joy" and "Dragon Slippers". Lovely covers!

    Congrats on your progress! I stayed up until 4:00 AM last night, reading "The Christmas Town". That book is fascinating!

    Toodles for now!! : )

    1. Dreams of Joy is a sequel to Shanghai Girls. I highly recommend them.

      I tried staying up longer than 1:00 am but failed. I'm supposed to go to a Quincenera tonight so we'll see how much reading I'll get done.

    2. Hey, thanks for recommending these books! I will definitely add them to my TBR!!

      Oh, a "Quince" party! Wow, I haven't heard of one of those in a while.....that's because I don't know any Hmm, I'm commenting back at 11:30, my time. You must have already gone and come back. I hope you had fun!
