I admit I’m a book cover snob. Who isn’t though?
Book covers are the first thing that attracts readers to a book. A good cover can draw someone is, just as a bad cover can easily draw someone away. It can essentially make or break a book. Holy, Mother Cover! is where I showcase the book covers that stand out (or make me cringe) and discuss cover changes.
IT’S ALMOST CHRISTMAS, DUDES! *flails arms*
And you know what I want to do? Show off my favorite snow covers! Because it’s almost Christmas. And no Christmas is complete without snow. (Well, I live on the West Coast, so there’s never snow. Whoops.)
What do I like about each cover?
- In My True Love Gave To Me, I love everything about it. The gorgeous illustration and the typography that I am drooling over. It’s just the best.
- In After the Snow, I like that it’s like you’re looking up to the sky. It makes the bare tree branches even more ominous and creepy.
- In The Snow Child, the minimalistic images create such a timeless look. There’s something really magical about it.
- In The Tragedy Paper, I love snow falling down because it looks a bit like the camera suffered from lens flare. It’s a cool effect. Plus, it’s quite ominous that the model is running away in the snow.
- In Winterkill, I love that the wood fences create the title. It’s a really creative way of displaying it. And, I like that the fence posts are sharp like it’s a stake.
- In Marcelo and the Real World, I love the silhouettes, and the detail in the tree and the treehouse. It makes me feel all cozy.
