August 2nd: Book Covers You’d Live In
— We all love a good cover but what are some covers you’d like to be transported into?

 

I was so excited when I read this topic, because I thought it would be sooo easy. I was wrong. Very, very wrong. There are plenty of gorgeous covers out there, but it took a lot of work for me to come up with 5 that made me think, “Oh yeah, I want to be in there!” if I took the story out of the equation. Anyway, here’s what I finally settled on, in no particular order…

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll– Either the Puffin Chalk edition, or the gorgeous Camille Rose Garcia edition.

Jane Eyre cover; links to goodreads

 

 

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë– The Penguin Deluxe Classics edition, which I’ve been lusting after for a couple of years now but still don’t have 😥 I think all the books in the Deluxe Classics line are drool-worthy (or at least all the ones I’ve seen), but this one makes me want to go explore that house.

Through the Woods by Emily Carroll– This is one of my favorite book covers, and I’m definitely intrigued enough to want to explore those woods.

The Seafarer’s Kiss cover; links to goodreads

 

The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember– Icy (or snowy?) looking landscape with a mermaid? Yes, please! (I hate summer, ok, and it took conscious effort to not make this list with all winter landscape covers :/ )

Chamber of Secrets cover; links to goodreads

 

 

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Illustrated edition) by J.K. Rowling and illustrated by Jim Kay– I had to include a Harry Potter book on this list, but choosing just one was so hard! I finally decided to use this one.

Harry Potter Moment of the Week: May 18th

This weekly meme was created by Uncorked Thoughts and is now hosted by Lunar Rainbows.

 

The topic this week is: Favorite Dobby Moment?

 


Dobby was one of my favorite characters, and to be honest, I still tear up reading/watching the last scenes with him. I had to think a little to come up with a favorite moment, and it’s hard to really choose just one. But I’m going to go with this one…

I loved this moment in the books and the movies, but I think I like the book version better, because Lucius went tumbling down the stairs in it, if I’m not mistaken.

But in both versions, Dobby is finally free, probably holding a grudge against the Malfoys, already protective of Harry, and then Lucius tries to attack Harry? Huh uh, Dobby’s not having any of that.


What was your favorite Dobby moment?
