After having been nominated for five blogger tags, I’m beginning to feel like a piece of merchandise. Each time the price goes up, and nominating other bloggers who I haven’t already nominated gets harder.
Sometimes I wish people would stop tagging me, but then every time someone does a tag and they don’t tag me, I’m like, What? You didn’t tag me? And then I wish I had been tagged.
So thank you, Jenna, for tagging me and keeping me from getting dinosaurily offended! I hope you’ll forgive me for exchanging out a few of your book-lover questions—I couldn’t seem to find answers to them. Like “a cover you love on a book you hate.” I never read books I hate, and since I haven’t actually read them, I do not feel honest saying I hate them (though I know I would).
Rules of the tag:
- Thank the blogger who tagged you and link back to their blog.
- Create 7 new #CoverLove questions, or be lazy and just use mine.
- Answer the 7 questions your nominator gave you.
- Nominate 7 other bloggers and let them know they’ve been tagged.
1. A cover that makes you think of your childhood
A story about a boy with a pet dinosaur? What more can I say? That’s basically Mariposa and my life’s story (except the fact that I’m NOT her pet)! The dinosaur is even green and the kid has brown hair!
Wait—does that count as plagiarism? I shall contact my lawyer tomorrow and find out.
2. Aesthetic goals book cover
If I ever write a nonfiction book, I intend to make it green and blue like this. If you haven’t figured out why, you are welcome to feel stupid today.
3. A book that hasn’t come out yet
I thought I’d give Mariposa a chance and pop in one of her answers. She’s never read anything by this author, but coral is one of her favorite colors, and the beach is her favorite place. So, in all honesty, she hopes this cover will live up to her infatuations.
4. A blue cover
Currently Mariposa is reading this one to me. Currently pleading with her to finish it before I die of curiosity.
5. A cover you love on a book you haven’t read yet
This book almost looks too good to eat…almost.
6. The worst cover you’ve ever seen
Mariposa and I were searching online for sci-fi books and hoping to discover a dinosaur book. We were not disappointed while being disappointed.
7. The cover of a book by an author you’ve met (or want to)
Mariposa wants to meet this guy because he’s a paleontologist and can advise her how to properly handle me.
Now for my questions!
1. A cover with dinosaurs (good luck finding that—if you’re desperate, you are allowed to substitute dragons)
2. A nonfiction cover you adore
3. An aesthetic self-published book
4. A colorful cover
5. A cover that reminds you of your WIP
6. A jungly cover
7. A simplistic yet beautiful cover
I shall break the rule everybody breaks and not tag anybody—I tag everybody who feels compelled to share their love of reading.
