This week no “In My Mailbox” as I didn’t receive a single book in the past week *sob*. This rarely happens but there are indeed weeks that no books arrive and while I should be happy (relieved) with that because my bookcases are overflowing, the bookaddict in me can’t help but feel a bit sad about that…
I was sick a while back and didn’t have the energy to read and didn’t read a single word for more than 2 weeks! In that period of time I did however work on my wishlist for 2010 as my inner list and order loving persona was twitching at the fact that 2010 was approaching and I didn’t have my wishlist sorted out but having notes and scribbles of release dates, author names and book titles all over the place, on sticky notes, in notebooks, on random pieces of paper and in an incomplete worksheet in Excel… *gasp*
So I took the laptop with me to bed and started sorting everything out. Visiting author sites, fantasticfiction.co.uk and amazon.com to get some much craved order.
While doing this I stumbled on something that made me cringe….
In historical romance my preference definitely goes out to medieval romance. Something about Knights, Vikings, Saxons and Normans attracts me to no end. Therefore I have a collection of Julia Latham (aka Gayle Callen) medieval historical romances on my bookshelves. I’ve have read a bunch of the Gayle Callen books but the Julia Latham medievals, sadly, are still unread…I’ll spare you all my usual mantra about unread books and Mt. TBR and get to my point.
This last cover is SO different from the rest I really had to look a few times before I really believed it was a Julia Latham book, let alone in the same series as TAKEN AND SEDUCED!
I first thought she had changed publishers but no, she’s still with Avon?
I must say I really prefer the other covers over this last one. Don’t misunderstand me, there’s nothing wrong with this last cover, it’s just so…I don’t know old-skool, eighties-nineties, and it really doesn’t give me the urge to buy it as much as the other covers did…
What do you think?
