Book covers into fashion 6

And you’re bound to be new to this series if you’re new to my blog, because I haven’t had a chance to make one of these posts in almost 2 damn years!! What happened?! My sincere apologies, because I definitely haven’t stopped reading!

In this series, instead of creating a collage inspired by the characters of the book like my  Books into Fashion series – I create collages inspired by the covers themselves! I read Mindy Kaling’s book a good while back and always loved that she was the star of her book cover – it really gained steam during the time comedian biographies were gaining popularity.

And more recently, I finally picked up Chery Strayed’s WILD on a whim to read it after soooo long. I actually loved it, and found it more inspiring than something like Lean In…I find the cover pretty hilarious because the damn boots she wore were such pains throughout the whole story!

I hope to resurrect all my book series, gotta keep reading as much as I can.

It’s been almost two months since my last Covers into Fashion series! I thought this installment I’d turn some recent and past favorites (and blockbusters) into sets!

I read The Fault In Our Stars a few years ago – I didn’t imagine it would turn into this crazy cinematic phenomenon! I have to tell patrons at the library every day that if they want to read the book, they’ll have to wait in a line of 300+ others waiting too! Yikes. This version turned into a home decor set!

The Great Gatsby cover is just iconic from the moment it was conceptualized, it’s part of the story. There really isn’t much to say, except that I’m going to re-read it soon.

Drop me a line if you have any suggestions for the next covers!

It’s been a nice, long time since I’ve done a book related post, and I’ve had these particular ideas brewing in my head. So it was time to sit down and hit publish!

For this first book, I chose a book cover that needs little or no introduction. We have enjoyed the cute and silly Madeline stories for generations.

The next book is my current read, Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. NO SPOILERS PLEASE! So far…I’m already confused? I have challenged myself to read more “grown up” books again this year. This is one that I’ve decided to tackle, but I’m not as captivated from the beginning like I’m used to (which is great about kids/teen books). But Life After Life was on all the best seller lists, that I feel like I need to read this!
What do you guys think of these? I’m quite proud of the last one, it started as a completely different idea and it turned into this in the end.

I thought long and hard about what book to do next, and then it took even longer to figure out how to interpret it. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein was not a book I read as a child, I didn’t come across it until I began working at the library in Vegas. I’m kinda glad I discovered it when I did, I don’t think I could have handled reading the story as a child. It is about asking and taking every last bit of life from the people that love you until they no longer have anything to give. I thought it would be fun to interpret the cover in a sort of whimsical way, hope you like it :)

I know a lot of people out there have a love/hate relationship with this book – how about you?
