Jamie Canavés is the Tailored Book Recommendations coordinator and Unusual Suspects mystery newsletter writer–in case you’re wondering what you do with a Liberal Arts degree. She’s never met a beach she didn’t like, always says yes to dessert, loves ‘80s nostalgia, all forms of entertainment, and can hold a conversation using only gifs. You can definitely talk books with her on Litsy and Goodreads. Depending on social media’s stability maybe also Twitter and Bluesky.

A beautiful thing happened on Twitter: people came together for the bookish hashtag #80sABook.

Some of the tweets were SO Totally ’80s Awesome that I started imagining the book covers which–combined with my inspiration from Rioter Eric’s book designing post–led to my Photoshop skills being put to good use. I don’t know about you but I would read the hell out of these.
