Cover Art Weekend Blog Hop


This is a fun meme for the weekends, that is sure to brighten your day.

It is hosted by Yvonne, over at ‘Socrates’ Book Review Blog ‘

Yvonne Says

“This is a brand new meme to display all those beautiful, funny, crazy and even those that make you think book covers you come across each week. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I love looking at different book covers. You may not be able to judge a book by its cover, but they are sure fun to look at. So, if you’d like to join in the fun, all you have to do is…

1. Cross to ‘Socrates’ Book Review Blog’. Take the button at the top of this post and post it on your blog.

2. Chose a book cover of your choice and post it. (You can post as many covers as you’d like.)

3. Sign up with Mr. Linky at the bottom of the page. Please use the url that links directly to your cover art post.

4. Visit other blogs on the list to see what covers they are featuring this week.

Instead of just one day, I thought I’d run this through the weekends – from Fridays to Mondays. That gives people more of a chance to blog hop.

Have fun!”


My entry this week, is a great cover which caught my eye whilst I was standing in the queue at my local bookstore.

The book is  ‘Mini Shopaholic’ by Sophie Kinsella and I just thought that it was so bright and cheery that it was worth a mention in this meme.

Sophie Kinsella, is a name that I have come across before, when reading other bloggers reviews, but isn’t an author that I have read personally. I guess that may be because I always associate her name and books with ‘Chick Lit’, a genre that I wouldn’t necessarily choose to read very often.

It would be great for me to hear the views of anyone out there who is a fan of Sophie’s, or has read any of her books, I am always open to persuasion!


Shopaholic Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood)’s two-year-old is … spirited. She knows what she wants, whether it’s a grown-up Prada handbag or a toy pony (40% off, so a bargain, surely?) When yet another shopping trip turns to mayhem, Becky decides it’s time to give Minnie her own pocket money.

Is it a bad sign when Minnie goes instantly overdrawn?

Minnie isn’t the only one in financial crisis. As the Bank of London collapses, people are having to cut back. Everyone needs cheering up, so what better way to do it than to throw a fabulous surprise party? A thrifty party, of course. Except economising and keeping a secret have never been Becky’s strong points …

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
