A Picture’s Worth: Classics & Crime

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.

Anna K.

Heard of this from a friend who had picked the book up in BOTM and on some research saw I was the only of her Goodreads friends who had read the Tolstoy original. 😂 She let me borrow it, and OH. MAN. It’s been fascinating. I have lots of thoughts. One of which is that the colors of the cover are gorgeous, and yet feel at odds with the expected content of the story. Nonetheless, people will do gorgeous things with it.

Capturing the classiness of the families within; well, the surface-level class, anyway. They’re actually all pretty messed up.

Once again harnessing some of the posh lifestyle of all (barring Dustin) within the novel. Love the cover play on this one, really cute effect!

Are you getting it yet? I love the covers that match the glitz and glam lifestyle within the pages. I also just love seeing the accessories and very specific pieces of clothing that people have that happen to work well with it. I certainly don’t have any!

What’s this? Yet ANOTHER cover? Jenny, girl, I’m going to have to do a cover roulette already and the book’s only been out for four days!

All right, I know I’m throwing a lot of this one out there, but THE SUNGLASSES!

The Girl On The Train

This was part of my Valentine’s Day book haul, and my overall feeling was “ok.” This was such a wildly popular book when it first came out in 2015 that I figured there would be lots of photos, though, and I was pretty much correct on that thought. ☺

IT HAD TO HAPPEN. The picture of someone (probably a girl) on a train reading The Girl on the Train. Although I’d like to note that at time of writing this, this photo was posted only 16 hours ago, so yeah, clearly still a popular read!

The effort of the drawing and the calligraphy is A+ here.

The lighting here is just perfect to make this feel ominous.

And where would this story be without alcohol? The answer is probably much much shorter, or possibly nonexistant.

Lots are in progress

These have been somewhat on hold since I was away for vacation, but I have been in the middle of five or six books at all times for the last few weeks. Which means now there will be the sudden spike in my read count as I finish them all up. 😁


Reader, traveler, photographer, and always looking to learn!
