Admiring book covers and bookmarks, shared by you!

Welcome to INSIDE AND OUT. This feature includes two of my absolute favorite book-related things: bookmarks (inside) and book covers (out)! I’ve invited guest posters to share their favorite book covers and bookmarks here on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. Sign-ups are always open (see bottom of post)! Check out past posts here.

Tell me a little about yourself: I am always so bad at this! Um, I’m a mid 30 year old YA reading gal and proud of it. I hail from the fabulous city of Boston, MA and I’m a HUGE Patriots, Red Sox and Bruins fan. I’m a shopaholic and proud. And yes I have a strong Boston accent. Oh and I’m a huge pusher of Anna and the French Kiss (Lauren will tell you! It was the first thing I made her do. <–truth)

Talk about your blog (what you blog about/kinds of books, features, etc.): My blog is my baby. It consists of YA books for the most part. I review fantasy, contemporary, Sci-fi, dystopian, romance. I also have a weekly feature called The ABCs where a guest poster selects an accessory, book and clothing item they are lusting after and tells my readers why they want each.

Favorite genre: I love a lot of different kind of books but I have to go with contemporary. I love a good love story with real life issues and circumstances in the background.

Three books you recommend most often and why:

  • Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – It just has the potential to make you feel book about yourself and love and life
  • Loop by Karen Akins – I was/am obsessed with this story. Bree and Finn are awesome as is the time travel and writing.
  • Really anything I think you will like once I get to know you. I love suggesting books to people I know when I think they will love something. Sometimes I succeed sometimes not so much, but I still do it.

Anything else to share? Personal plug for something coming up? Only thing is if you are interested in signing up for The ABCs, you can do so here.

What book do we have here?  When We Collided by Emery Lord (out 2016)

Have you read it yet? If so, how was it?  I was asked to read it when it was just a manuscript so I have not read the ARC or final version, but it was amazing! Emery Lord did a fantastic job dealing with the effect of mental illness and majorly tugged on my heart strings. It is a powerful must read.

What makes this cover a favorite? Having read the book before seeing a cover I love it because it fits the story. It is quiet and chaotic and bright and beautiful, but also all over the place.

What kind/style of covers do you usually pine over (script fonts, bright colors, realistic, etc.)? I’m a huge fan of white covers. I know they aren’t huge in the publishing world but I love the look of them. Speechless by Hannah Harrington is one of my favorites actually because of its simplicity.

the bookmark2

What bookmark did you chose?  My blog button bookmark.

What makes this one special to you? I actually had this custom made for me. I created the blog button myself and sent it to a company on Etsy and they made it into their style but with my work. I love it.

Where’s it from?  Craftedvan

What kind of bookmarks do you prefer (paper, magnetic, quotes, etc.)?  I’m a magnetic person. I find them easy to use when you are commuting to work. It’s easy to clip on to the book and not have to hold on to it.

Thanks so much for joining Inside & Out, Andi! And more importantly, thank you for introducing me to Anna and the French Kiss 😉
I absolutely can’t wait for this book and I LOVE Craftedvan bookmarks!

Join in the fun!

Important: Sign-ups are always open and currently scheduled through September.
