Novel Portraits: Over The Weekend

novel portraits

Novel Portraits is a weekend feature where I showcase book photography! Photography is my second most favourite hobby next to reading! A love child of the two dearest things to me- book photography is awesome and thus demands a segment on the blog. To read more about the feature, check out the introductory post for Novel Portraits.

It’s been too long since I did a Novel Portraits post that wasn’t a Behind The Lens interview! Anyhow, I took some (mostly random and just a little crappy) photos over the weekend and thought to share them with y’all!


Weekend Read

The Novel: Wish You Were Italian by Kristin Rae
The Portraits: Taken 07/25/14, with Canon 600D, post-processed
Description: Someone should have put a warning in the front page of WYWI, ‘Do not read without gelato.’ Haha, I’m not even kidding when I say that I couldn’t read on without getting myself one! The book totally had me craving for gelato within the first few chapters! It’s not obvious in the photos, but I got three flavours: mint (my favourite), almond, and nutella! Anyhow, WYWI was my weekend read and it was such a fun book! I am dying to go to Italy now, seriously!

For Summer Photo Contest

The Novel: Only Everything by Kieran Scott
The Portraits: Taken 07/27/14, with Canon 600D, post-processed
Description: If you guys didn’t know, Kieran Scott is having a summer photo contest for her novel, Only Everything! I read it last May and enjoyed myself so much! I mean it’s a contemprary-ish book w/ Greek myth characters & romance- that’s like a formula for awesome! As I’m dying to read the next books, I’m completely pining over the prizes! I had several photo ideas for the contest but unfortunately couldn’t do them so I did a simple ‘shoot’ with my sister earlier today and she modelled the book for me! I don’t know whether this will be my final entries but the photos I took look summery enough thankfully even though summer is over in the Philippines. I hope people get the first photo with the hair thing! (It’s meant to be a heart!)

Care to share your thoughts on the photos I took? Have you already read any of these books or are planning to? Are you planning to join Kieran’s photo contest too? What did you read or do over the weekend?

  1. I absolutely adore this feature! There’s nothing I enjoy more than picking up a camera, and this post combines my faves…photography AND books! Oh…and I’m totally craving gelato now! ;-)

  2. Yum, gelato! I love the pictures! The hair idea is really cool. I haven’t read any of these yet, but really want to read Wish You Were Italian! I’ll have to find some gelato to eat whenever I do. Haha.

  3. Ooooohh, the typography on Only Everything is sooo frickin’ gorgeous! The heart is so cute! I love how fitting your blouse is with that book. :D
