Judging A Book By Its Cover: Hiddensee

This is my weekly post where I highlight beautiful books from my collection. We all judge book covers to some extent (don’t lie, you totally do!) I created this feature to showcase and admire the art and design elements of some of the books I own. If covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t make so many wonderful editions!

Life of a Book Hoarder

Arizona Vacation – Mostly I Bought Books

If you follow me on Instagram (hey, shameless plug, how ya doin’?) you might recall I was in Arizona for the week of Thanksgiving. It was my fourth time out there visiting my aunt and grandmother, so rather than do a ton of sight-seeing, we did a ton of book shopping and eating of delicious foods. So I wanted to share!

Book Review

Book Review: The House in Poplar Wood

The House in Poplar Wood
K.E. Ormsbee

My Edition:
ARC Paperback, 333 pages
2018, Chronicle Books
ISBN: 9781452149868 (hardcover)

I won a copy of this book from LibraryThing in exchange for my honest review.

Felix and Lee Vickery live separate lives in the same house. Lee and his mother serve Memory and Felix and his father serve Death and while the boys can meet, neither can see the parent they don’t live with, nor can that parent see them. This has been the Agreement for their whole lives and the boys have done all they can think of to break it. When Gretchen Whipple comes into their lives stirring up trouble, the twins believe they might have finally found someone who could help them break the Agreement. If, that is, they can outsmart Death.

The cover caught my eye when I was browsing the LibraryThing Early Reviewers page (I mean, come on, isn’t that color combination gorgeous?!) and when I saw it was a dark middle-grade, I slammed the request button. I’m so happy I won a copy! This was a great read, perfect for the fall/Halloween season.
