Kieron Thanks Satsuma. The idea is to read a book with something on the cover that matches the challenge and I haven't got round to reading any of the Harry Potter books yet.

Satsuma | 2 comments Your welcome. I have already read that book.

My 4th Robin Hobb book and although a little slow paced at times, very high quality with great characterization and worldbuilding. She certainly puts her characters through some uncomfortable situations.

She does at that. Awkward lol

You're cruising through these.


message 19: by Kieron (new)

Kieron They are all just falling into place as I read them at the moment. There is going to be a point in the near future though when I will have to read books just to make them fit. Book with a pink cover! 😢

I think you have to find one with some pink or you'll never finish. The Obelisk Gate

The Obelisk Gate (The Broken Earth, #2) by N.K. Jemisin

This is my book I'm going to use and to me it's pink enough. :)


message 21: by Kieron (new)

Kieron Ha Ha. Does that mean I have to start another series just to get a book with a pink cover. 🙄


message 22: by Tammie (last edited Jul 12, 2017 09:31AM) (new)

Tammie | 3842 comments Good job Kieron.

I think that's plenty pink enough Scott. I'm wondering what I'm going to use for a metallic cover, especially since I read a lot on my Kindle. I can't really tell if they are shiny and metallic looking.

Thanks Tammie. We are all trailing behind you. I was thinking gold, silver or bronze for metallic.

I guess it doesn't really need to be shiny then? I've got a gold colored one I could use then. I don't know why I was thinking it had to be shiny.

Like you I've been lucky enough to just be reading stuff that fit into the categories so far.

I used Fall of Light

Fall of Light (The Kharkanas Trilogy, #2) by Steven Erikson

which was easy since it is a bronze statue.


message 28: by Kieron (new)

Kieron Don't think I will be reading that anytime soon Scott. I am only up to House Of Chains in the Malazan world.

No doubt. I was just using it as an example.

Fantastic progress Kieron! I'm using Malice as my metallic cover. I reckon it could be white or metallic, but figured metallic would be harder to tick off for me.

House of Chains is taking me forever Kieron, though it's finally looking like I will finish it this week!


message 33: by Kieron (new)

Kieron I am avoiding starting House Of Chains for that very reason Angela. Will have to bite the bullet and commit to it soon though.


message 34: by Angela, I'm Silverfox lost (new)

Angela | 3517 comments Mod
Hope you do start soon Kieron, it's still a good read. Just finding it a bit more of a slog than the first 3.

Ha Ha Ha. Was going to use it for my white/brown/red/grey/pink/purple/blue/yellow/ cover.


message 42: by Angela, I'm Silverfox lost (new)

Angela | 3517 comments Mod
Haha you guys. Funny. Kieron, I'm using the same book for my biggest font.


message 43: by Kieron (new)

Kieron We are both about half way through and. to be honest I think I am going to start struggling,. because I look at my bookshelf and I don't have any of these covers there.


message 44: by Angela, I'm Silverfox lost (new)

Angela | 3517 comments Mod
Same here. There's 4 more I think I can do fairly easily in the next couple of months and another 4 I'm going to struggle.

But the birds constitute such a small percentage of the cover. :)
