INK RIPPLES BOOK COVERS

Quote for the week: Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend. Albert Camus




#InkRipples is a meme created by Katie L. Carroll, Mary Waibel, and Kai Strand. They post on the first Monday of every month with a new topic. I post, but not always the first Monday. It's a lot of fun, and you can post too, any day that fits your schedule. Be sure to link back to Katie, Mary, and Kai.

January's topic is Book Covers. What about a cover attracts you? A lovely scene, mountains, rivers, animals, and characters get my attention. Here are some of my favorites, not all by any means.


You're not surprised? Of course, I like cats.
 
 
This is so inspiring and the colors are warm and lovely.
 
 
The cover tells the story.
 
What are your favorite covers?
 
Happy Reading!

    1. Well, naturally, Pat. Look at that adorable kitty face, like he's so sweet and innocent. Haha.

  4. I love all of my publisher's covers...cartoony is always fun! I even liked the chick lit era, where all the covers were cartoony. In general, though, I just like looking at all types of covers. They're like artwork.

    1. Your covers are awesome, too, Stephanie. I could have posted tons of covers that I adore. Me, too. Covers show great talent and a huge variety of styles.

  5. I love the Chicken Soup title. Aren't all cats both good and bad?

    1. They sure are, Diane. One minute a cat is purring and all cuddly; the next minute he/she is meowing and scratching you because you did something they didn't like. You gotta love their independence. :)

  6. How did I not do the InkRipples post this month? Well, I have an excuse, but I won't bore you with it. Thanks for keeping the meme going. I'll catch up.

    1. It couldn't be that you're very busy, lee. I have notes everywhere reminding me what to do. Sometimes, I still forget. :)

  7. Lovely covers. The Chicken Soup one is cute. I, too, love cats. :) I once heard not to put sunrises/sunsets in a book cover, but I have no idea why. I think it can make a stunning cover, like the second cover.

    1. I know, Chrys. Anything with kitties I like. I think it's a personal thing that attracts readers to certain covers, at least it is for me.

  8. Those are perfect covers to give the reader the right idea about what the book's about and the tone and style/genre inside the covers. Love that last one!

    1. I agree, Lexa. The last one is so true to the story of the relationship of man and his son. It's adorable.

  9. I like those covers, too, Beverly, especially the way the seems to shine right off the cover of the last two.

    1. Thanks, Katie. I like covers that give a hint to what the book is about. Both of those do.

    1. Yes, some colors are more appealing to me than others are, Kelly.

  11. I love to see the different styles of book covers. I can appreciate any book cover that makes me curious about what's inside. :)

    1. Me, too, Jess. Some book covers just beg a person to look inside.

  12. Aw, Stone's Heart is lovely, isn't it? Something about a man and a child that tugs at the heart strings.

  13. You're right, Kai. And this is such a sweet story about the man and his son. Brought tears to my eyes.
