Bout of Books Challenge – Recreate a Cover

This challenge was a lot of fun. It took some time for me to think up a cover that had a picture I related specifically to a book. I settled on the Dolphins of Pern by Anne McCaffrey (a book and series I recommend if you haven’t read it!).  The original cover is first and my recreation is on the right. I don’t have any colored markers or pencils at the moment, so I apologize for the lack of color.

Edit: I realized I haven’t updated on where I am in reading! I’m about 50pgs away from the end of the Assassin’s Apprentice (Robin Hobb). It is an incredible book! I highly recommend it. I hope to finish the book tonight so I can purchase the second novel and catch up to Cya.




Bout of Books Create a Sentence Challenge

For this sentence I used the following books:

A Tale of Two Cities – Charles Dickens

Maelstrom – Peter Watts

His Last Bow – Arthur Conan Doyle

Accelerando – Charles Stross

Anna Karenina – Leo Tolstoy

Crime and Punishment – Fyodor Dostoyevsky

White Fang – Jack London


“It was the day I find Manfred’s happy families on a few dark spruce.”


This was surprisingly difficult to accomplish with the books I had on hand! Good luck to everyone participating!
