The post today is inspired by a text I got from a woman I’ve been friends with since we were 8 years old (28 years or so).
Out of the blue, she texts me, “Do you remember a character by the name of Darian who was a gorgeous blonde vampire? I think it was a series of three books. She kept pursuing a moping vampire through the years.”
Given how many books there are about moping vampires, the chances of me remembering it seemed remote. But something about how she put it made me think of the name “David”. So I did a quick google search, and as I searched, the name “David Morrissey” rang a very strong bell. It took about 15 minutes of googling different combinations (I don’t watch the Walking Dead, but apparently there’s a character named David Morrissey on it) of words that included vampires, 1990s and David. She thought maybe Obsession might be the title.
And I FOUND the books. Hehe. It was the David de Morrissey series by Lori Herter. The first book is Obsession. (I didn’t google the title because I figured there were dozens of books called Obsession) and didn’t expect to find anything that way. As soon as I found the books on Goodreads, I had a visceral memory of loving the covers. Here they are:
It was the cover for Possession that gripped me most back in the day. And I’ll be honest, I haven’t read this series since probably the mid 1990′s, but I still remember them, and I certainly still absolutely love and react to the cover of Possession.
So, here’s the question/topic for discussion today: Do you have any book covers that spark certain reactions, even long-lasting memories?
