A Picture’s Worth: dark fantasy & light reality

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.

The Obsidian Tower

I was absolutely delighted when I was offered a copy of The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso after posting about how excited I was for its release. I’ve dived right in and am loving the rich world of magic so far! It’s a new release, but I’m excited to see some wonderful bookstagram posts for it already. ^.^

Such a dramatic and striking cover on this one! The details of it are impressive, and the flurry of items in this one complements it so well.

Maps. Who doesn’t love a good map? I love maps in books because it feels like an exciting tease about all the places I might be able to discover. 😍

Loving the dark vibes on this one. Can’t forget the fact that OBSIDIAN is a key element to this story!!

Why Not Me?

I read Mindy Kaling’s last book and enjoyed it. When I found her second book, Why Not Me?, as an audiobook recently I thought I’d give it a shot! Luckily she narrated it herself, which is an absolute delight. I’m really enjoying it!

Okay, I know technically the covers here are really teeny, BUT I also think they’re really cool! This is both of Mindy’s books as seen on tiny book charms! Crafty people make the neatest stuff. I’m also really curious how Mindy (or any author) woudl feel about wearing tiny charms of their own books. Pretentious? Delighted? Smug? I’ll save this for my next AMA with an author. 😂

I love the pairing of MIndy’s two books with BJ Novak’s short story collection. They’re “kind of like ex-spouses who’s kid is off at boarding school” so Mindy says in her second book, so why not pair them together! xD

I feel like Mindy would approve of the giant squishy cinnamon roll in the photo. But I also feel like EVERYONE should approve of that.


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