TELEPHONE BOOK TAG ☎️ times two

I got tagged for the telephone book tag by two people on the same day so of course I had to give it a try!

The idea for the telephone book tag is to start with the last book the person before you started on and then you pick ten books, one at a time, that have some similar elements on the cover. So I started with the last book of each of the ladies before me (Lovely Day with Holly and Gloria Z Thompson) and took elements from each of their covers to make my next choices, then used elements from those choices to make more and so on, until I had ten books in each stack and ended up with some very different looking books!

I’m not really sure the explanation made much sense, but if you watch the video hopefully it will.

If you are interested in doing this yourself you can choose one of the books I end on as your starting book and then leave me a message in the comments sharing your ten books.
