Cover Love#1 November 2016

From now on, every month I’ll be doing a quick post on my favorite new/old covers. These may or may not be books I’ve read, or reviewed. They may not even be books I’m planning to read. The only criteria is that I simply love the cover art, that I think it’s cool, striking, interesting, or whatever. They may be my own books, or books I grabbed off the shelves at the library as I passed. Possibly, I’ll even feature books I don’t physically have in my possession. There are so many stunning book covers that I couldn’t possibly own, read, or even touch them all!

This month, five out of the six are my own books. Check them out below!

The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown (TBR): This one is very simple, but I like the embossed (?) font, and that fabulous hue of green against the plain white. Plus, vines!

Spooky Little Girl by Laurie Notaro (read, enjoyed): How can you not love chartreuse?! Combined with a dress and heels and shadowy smoke billowing from it, this is just cool.

Women with Big Eyes by Ángeles Mastretta (read, reviewed, loved): The gold detailing on the border, the colors, the intensity of that one, single eye.

The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo (TBR): I love the dreamy quality of the front, the muted colors, the little stars.

Sonata Mulattica by Rita Dove (read, enjoyed): The silhouette, the curving baroque aqua blue against the cream. Gorgeous.

The Peculiar Miracles of Antoinette Martin (library book, TBR): I was processing this and stopped immediately to admire the cover. The old glass jars, the peacock blue color, the feathers, the shell, the dandelion puff—all create a magical, yet somehow serious effect.
