5. Headless Bodies. eee. That sounds morbid but I like when the face isn't shown. I picked up this trilogy at the library based on the covers.

6. Washed Out Photos.

7. Colorful & Illustrated. I'm not really sure what style this is - I always think of it as "chick-lit-ish" but I don't think that is an accurate name.

Dislikes - not as many on this list. 
1. Bare-chested, tattooed males. 

2. Dark, Hooded Figures. Usually found on Fantasy or Dystopian books. With those dark eyes that don't look nice. 

3. Historical, Thoughtful Women.
3776663

4. Ren at Words in a Teacup mentioned that she dislikes covers where the title doesn't flow in the standard reading order and I thought "YES! Me too!" I find this annoying in other printed realms as well. 

What about you? Do you have a list for this week?

I like facial close ups if the person in the photo actually looks like the character. You know what I mean? I mean, obviously the Tim Tebow one looks like him. Haha. I haven't read The Art of Lainey yet but I want to. Hope the cover doesn't disappoint.

I don't mind dresses as long as they have some relevance to the story :)

I really like the washed out photo covers too! So pretty :)

Reviews from a Bookworm said...

I have to admit that almost all of your likes are on my dislike list, haha!But, for most, I have exceptions that I really love. The headless ones just bug me for some reason. I love vintage item covers, they always look so pretty. Great picks :)

You have really great picks and a bigger imagination than me, I had a hard time figuring this out!
