Hi dear friends,
As usual I haven’t planned ahead today’s Top 5 Tuesday hosted by Shanah @bionicbookworm. I am always running late to write these posts that’s why Shanah nearly fell from her chair two weeks ago when I posted ahead!
I think Alice’s rabbit must be one of my ancestors!
Usually it works quite well but today we were asked our top 5 book spines!
Some side comment here as in French the spine is called a “tranche” as in a “slice”. Like a slice of bread. And that’s where I think my mother language really missed the point because the spine does not look like bread!
Whereas a spine is the backbone. So fitting when you think the spine holds all the pages together as they are glued to it! This is really the backbone of the book while our “tranche” is just plain idiotic!
Back to today’s topic speaking about the spines you find the most attractive usually involves some pictures to show you these spines. You don’t find them on Amazon or Goodreads and have to take your own picture.
You can find all the covers on these sites but no spines!!!
I guess that’s why Shanah says they deserve more love..
By the time I came home it was dark oustide. Meaning: I had to take my picture in artificial light! GASP! As any good photographer knows this is the worst!
So I apologize really for the first picture here below as it’s not my usual “standard” but that’s me being punished for not planning!
The good news is that I had other pictures of spines taken weeks or months ago. And as Shanah thinks these spines are overlooked and neglected I have decided to make it a “spine fest” today! Shanah you wanted spines now you’ll get them!
Today’s “artificial light”‘s pic like a rainbow of colors
Some of Cassandra Clare’s Spines
If you like them light blue and navy blue
Now some fall vibes here
And lastly I see life in blue green
Let me know your favorite because I love them all!
PS See the difference between artificial and natural light now?
Thanks for reading!
