That is so good to hear! I now wish I hadn't bailed haha.


message 9: by Ahdam (new)

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments Yeah it is a slow start but once you push through and get comfortable with the story and writing you should be good to go (the ending is brilliant IMO)

Great to hear Ahdam. I finally have it from the library, so hoping to try it out in July.

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments Completed Cover with the title in the biggest font

Brody's Ghost, Volume 2 by Mark Crilley

Not sure if this would count as cityscape or not so I decided to put it as this


message 12: by Ahdam (last edited Jul 09, 2017 03:28AM) (new)

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments Completed a book with a White Cover

The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time, #1) by Robert Jordan

Its kind of beige but I'll count it as white but still a great book though


message 13: by Angus (new)

Angus | 152 comments I was tempted to get them covers, but it annoys me how similar they all look.... I've grown to love the cheesy mass market paperbacks now xD Good job anyway :D


message 14: by Ahdam (new)

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments I have to agree with you there in fact I would probably complete the colours by just reading wheel of time hahaha and yeah I do prefer the old school artwork damn you Americans for having different artwork than us that looks cool


message 15: by Angus (new)

Angus | 152 comments I just buy the mini boxsets :) it seems to be the cheapest way to go about it haha But I think the UK tend to have better covers in general, for the most part...


message 16: by Ahdam (last edited Jul 25, 2017 02:11AM) (new)

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments Completed cover with a cityscape

That was fun and I'm not a big gamer and I don't usually like books that rely heavily on nostalgia.

Great job.


message 18: by Ahdam (new)

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments Yeah a lot of these references go over my head since I don't know what they are while some stuff like wargames and some of john hughes films or such gets me excited a lot when I'm playing it

I got a lot of them but some of them were so specific that if you never owned the Texas Instruments gaming system which wasn't wildly popular you would never know what that was, as one example.


message 20: by Ahdam (new)

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments Completed Cover with a Man

Storm Front (The Dresden Files, #1) by Jim Butcher


message 21: by Ahdam (new)

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments Completed Cover with a Magical Creature:

Dune (Dune, #1) by Frank Herbert

I'm gonna count this as creature since it has a sandworm on it and I've gotta say this is probably on of the best covers I've seen for a book especially for my first science fiction book


message 22: by Ahdam (new)

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments Completed a book with a green cover

Good job! I think the metallic cover is going to be my biggest challenge.


message 25: by Ahdam (new)

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments Thanks Niki to be honest the metallic one sometimes confuses me as well but I think rainbow cover might be difficult although I think I've seen some science fiction books have that kind of thing

Since you like YA, maybe try out Sea of Shadows. It has a metallic cover, and now it covers a group member recommendation too! You're welcome!

My own addition thought I added it because I love his covers and his art.


message 34: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 3611 comments Whew! I had just read the top part of your post and was frantically thinking "since when did we need to read a Michael Whelan cover??", haha. Then I saw that it was just your own thing.


message 35: by Ahdam (new)

Ahdam (snowlocke) | 2423 comments Yeah thought I would spruce it up a bit plus I love his art 😁😁


message 36: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 3611 comments The art is awesome. I ended up reading Oathbringer anyway so I would've been covered if it had been an official category. :-)
