She's got the books that kill.

Covers I Could Live In

The Top Five Wednesday topic for today is Covers I Could Live In. I'm translating this as covers that show a beautiful place, even if the actual place is not that great. By putting these covers on the list, I am saying that I like the place depicted, even if that doesn't accurately depict the place in the book. Clear as mud?

Gentleman In Moscow

A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles - This shot of the street view out his window is gorgeous! Not that I want to live in Soviet Russia, but that street is beautiful!

Hillbilly Elegy

Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance - Again, I am not interested in living in rural rust belt America, but look at that mountain! That wouldn't suck to wake up to.

Road to Little Dribbling

The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson - I'm not totally against rural living. This representation of an English village is thoroughly inviting.

Paris Wife

The Paris Wife by Paula McLain - Wouldn't it be fun to be at a cafe on a street in Paris? I mean, I wouldn't want to be married to Hemingway to make it happen, but everyone has their level.

Wilful Behaviour

Wilful Behaviour by Donna Leon - My computer is yelling at me that I spelled both those words wrong. But wouldn't Venice be an interesting place to live? One of my favorite things about this series is the that I learn so much about life in Venice along with getting to solve a mystery!

What are some book covers you could live in?
