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.

I recently noticed that Kissing Ted Callahan (And Other Guys) by Amy Spalding, a book in my TBR list, was suddenly looking a bit different. Turns out it’s getting a new cover for the paperback release on April 5th. Of course, this puts me in the predicament of having to choose which cover I want to own… I personally like both covers, but they are very different, which means cover face-off: the hardcover is a graphic design with a pop of color, and the paperback/Kindle is a photo design with strategic lettering. Decisions, decisions.

Do you have a preference? Do you find yourself in general gravitating more towards graphic covers or covers with photographs?
