Cover Review: 16th March to 20th March

Ash by Malinda Lo

I really like this cover. It’s so powerfully haunting – could there be a better depiction of utter loneliness, of someone being so completely lost as we see here? I think, especially with the stark, minimalist title, it’s a very powerful cover.

But possibly darker than the actual book turned out


Vampire, Interrupted (Argeneau #9) by Lynsay Sands

I am not a fan of the covers in this series. They seem to be very generic romance covers that depict their supernatural elements via tattoos. This makes me think far less about vampires, it makes me think Batwoman is getting married.

Yes I do keep thinking bat-family on these covers

Chameleon (Cage Punks #1) by Kenya Wright

I do love this one – it’s so powerful a depiction of Cameo and just how unique and different she is. It’s also so clearly personalised to the book which I really love. I love a book cover that clearly has been designed just for this book; this cover couldn’t be on any other book and I like that

Blue Rhapsody (Require Cookie Short) by Grace McDermott

Unlike his book cover which could really have been on any book. There is no sense of anything that’s in this book. It’s too generic – it’s a blue swirl over a city scape; I don’t really see anything to invest in

Divine Misfortune by A. Lee Martinez

I love this. It’s so simple but I just love it – the fist of a deity hammering down on hapless humanity! I love it love it love and it works so well with the title of this book.

Damn it’s so hard when I like the covers! So much less to snark!
