And so, thankfully, Book Week draws to an end. Today's mani is an idea I had quite early on in my planning cycle, and I’m actually quite pleased with how it turned out.
When I was struggling for ideas, I wondered whether anything would spark if I Googled the Top 100 Books of All Time, but as I was scrolling I clicked instead on the Top 100 Best Selling Books of 2012 …. And here we are :)
Above is a collage of some of the books they represent, and below is what they are –
Thumb – The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling
Index – 50 Shades of Grey
Middle – Fire and Ice, for Game of Thrones, A Song of Ice and Fire
Ring – Effie Trinket mani for Hunger Games
Pinkie – Wimpy Kid!
Excitingly, Wimpy Kid was good enough for Beth to guess without any clues :)
If I’m honest, although I’m a big reader, I haven’t read any of those 5 books lol. The Shades of Grey stuff just doesn’t interest me, and I haven’t even watched The Hunger Games film yet, though obviously I own some of the polishes haha.
Game of Thrones also doesn’t float my boat, but when Beth has read them, the Wimpy Kid books do look cool.
I am so glad to have Book Week out the way! Doing this and Dexter Week back to back has been brutal – lesson learned! Here’s to a weekend of catching up and writing :)
