Yesterday I caved and went to Borders after work. Damn you book bloggers/twitterers for getting me hooked on two new-to-me series with huge back lists *shaking fist at you* and no libraries in the DC area carry paranormal romance apparently. Harumph.
So. There I was at the bookstore, walking in with a smile on my face, good cheer bubbling up inside me just looking around at the treasures, and even with a To Buy List in hand I was drawn to the front displays. I’m a marketer’s dream, what I can say? If they had had any of these perfume sticks I would have bought it on sight.
Then I noticed it…Between the two front tables a common cover theme caught my eye. Twigs everywhere! What is up with this?
I find these covers super attractive and although the only book I know much about is Shiver my guess is the twigs/trees/branches may be symbolic of nature and literally the woods play a role in that story, but not too sure about the others.
Edited To Add: Also ever since I saw these covers I have this song/book stuck in my head from when I was a teeny tiny tot. Does anyone else remember this???
If you go into the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise
If you go into the woods today, you’d better go in disguise
For every bear that ever there was has gathered there and that’s because Today’s the Day the teddy bears have their piiiicnic.
I can’t remember the rest of it…
The covers are different enough, but still so similar I wonder if this is a coincidence or if some cover artists in New York have a twiggy conspiracy going. What do you think?
