Cover Curiosity: I Got the Blues. And Blacks. And Whites.
While not exactly spitting images of one another, today’s trio of covers share a distinct bond that is difficult to deny.

All three are pleasing to the eyes of this humble blogger.
Many thanks to the Picasso of Twitter aka @MrSchuReads aka fellow school librarian John Schumacher for bringing two of these covers to my attention.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Any other books that fit in this club?
