August 2016 Reviews


I'm finally posting my cover collage and, after this, hopefully writing some reviews. I'm about six reviews behind at the moment.


My favorite August cover images:


The Mysterious Lady Law - Robert Appleton 


I really like this cover, even knowing that it's probably just a bunch of stock images combined in Photoshop. At least they're stock images I haven't seen in a billion other covers.


The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty's Prince - Serena Valentino 


It's been a while since I last saw the movie, but this cover still made me excited. Too bad I wouldn't really recommend this book to people who actually liked the movie.


The Stinky Cheese Caper (And Other Cases from the ZPD Files) (Disney Zootopia) (Disney Chapters) - Greg Trine,Cory Loftis 


I kind of like Nick and Judy drawn in this style.
