I was going to be snarky and everything as usual but... IS THAT COURTNEY COX??

Tonight, Windswept is keeping things vague.



Presumably she used to be a cowboy called Bob.

Sorry for the delay everyone! The last few days have been a bit crummy.

Tonight, Windswept brings you Excellent Dating Advice.



At least not when you're on a date with danger, because that shit's just rude.

Tonight - a nautical mystery!



Shit. Maybe she saw the itinerary? Those mystery cruises are pretty hardcore.

Tonight we are... mostly confused.


I have no idea. Is 'mysterious' a euphemism for 'British'? Because I think we've all felt that way, Marion, you don't have to spare our feelings.

Tonight, we bring you EXAGGERATION.


Between the girl in the stunning orange ensemble, John McEnroe, the wardrobe, the clothes AND fear and death, that's one of the least empty attics I have ever seen.

Tonight, Windswept Mystery Romance launches its Epic Understatement series


Pretty sure if I was 'left in the desert to die' and forced to begin 'a deadly struggle for survival', I would call it something worse than a 'lost holiday' (and I'd be looking a hell of a lot more pissed off about it, and less like I'd just missed my bus).

I can't lie, this is pretty much my reaction any time someone knocks on my front door.

In my eternal quest for bad book covers, I have discovered Windswept Mystery Romance - putting the 'mystery' into cover design.

I keep finding new ones, so instead of posting them all at once I thought I would post one a day. I shall call these posts 'WTAF Is Going On In These Books Does Anyone Know Because I Don't.'

Ahem. Book one, for your enjoyment <3


Okay, one, I was not aware the past was silvery, I thought of it more as a nostalgic soft focus gold. Two, I am concerned about it crying out hauntingly, unless it's reminding me I left the iron on or something, in which case carry on. Three, a carnival horse appears to have gatecrashed the cover for no discernible reason, BUT IT IS SILVER.

Answers on a postcard please!

When illustrating the cover of a novel, most people attempt to recreate a scene or draw something symbolic enough to sum up the book's major themes. And other people think PFFT. I DON'T HAVE TIME TO READ THIS CRAP.

Welcome to the worst offenders I could find XD

What it looks like it’s about: A glamorous woman from the 1970s time travels to the 1840s via a dress shop in 1812. There she meets a dark Byronic hero who's really upset about something. Also a house is on fire.

As you know, I love finding amusing book covers and being snarky about them (see my 'cover snark' tag for evidence). Anyway, I decided to try romance novels this time and, as you will see, I have learned much about that all important genre.

I learned that back in the Old Days (actual historical term), romance novels were innocent and unsullied by the low thoughts of the Modern Age.

Also there's a clown. I don't know why either.

Nabbed from Google Images for your Sunday amusement <3

No way dude. Not until I know what the deal is with those piglets.

I am planning to mock some more old book covers and titles at some point (see my previous one here) because I have too much fun finding them, but today I wanted to briefly share the joys of gender stereotyping that I discovered along the way.

First of all, I discovered that boys have awesome adventures!

If that's not awesome I don't know what is.

Some silliness to cheer up Ven! All genuine 1960s and 1970s child and young adult book covers, many of which I read (I was pony mad as a child).
