A Picture’s Worth: Failure & Typewriters

Words have always carried more weight with me than images – give me a book over its movie any day – but I do love to see the beautiful images other people create when they’re in love with a book. That’s not my strength, but I can certainly appreciate it in others! So here’s a few of my faves based on what I’ve been reading recently.


Again, But Better

I’d been planning to read this one for a while, and finally got around to it when I saw it on the Goodreads Choice nominees list. I voted for a different book, and I’m glad I did, because this one was pretty disappointing. 😐 But the pictures below are gorgeous, at least!

Clever play with the colors on the cover, and also WOW do they have a lot of very specifically colored books. I imagine they had to reorganize to get this picture.

Another play with color here, but this one also embracing her student life

OOOOOOOH, is this a cover roulette feature preview I’m sensing?!

Miss Iceland

This was an ARC I got for the English translation publication, though the book has been out in other languages already. And other covers. This has basically turned into a cover roulette post. 😂 I’ll be honest, this book didn’t really do it for me, with the cover or the content inside.

This is the cover I’ve seen most, and it seems to be the French version.

And our first alternate cover, this one in Italian

And our Swedish version, which makes it look like a Nicholas Sparks co-op

And just for comparison, this is the cover I’m familiar with for the English version. QUITE a range they have here!


And so…

Well, I didn’t actually like either of these books very much, and their covers aren’t blowing me away either. However, as always, others who liked one or the other have made lovely photos to showcase them, and I appreciate their time and effort!
