A good friend and fellow book blogger of mine started a post series called, Cover Crush and a couple of other book bloggers and I love the idea so much we had to join in! Here is two others by A Bookaholic Swede and 2 Kids and Tired Books
I am not a cover designer but I can agree that cover design plays an important role in the overall presentation of the book and gladly admit I judge a book by it’s cover. When I saw this one on NetGalley, it set the mood for me wanting to find out more about the story. I have since then read the book and have a lot to say about it. My review will be coming soon here on Layered Pages!
A little teaser of my thoughts on the subject: This book cover is perfect for the story and the premise makes for a thrilling read by the fire side.
What book cover have you been crushing over lately?
In a world torn apart by economic collapse, Natalie and her husband Richard establish an island of relative safety on a communal farm. Death—by starvation, raiders, and sickness—stalks them daily, and their survival hinges on working together for the common good. But in a lawless land with no shortage of suffering, good is a malleable concept.
As the constant grind of survival and the frictions of farm politics expose the rifts in Natalie and Richard’s marriage, Natalie finds herself seeking refuge in the company of Richard’s twin, Daniel, a solitary man with little interest in politics.
In the face of ongoing external threats and simmering internal divisions, Natalie, Richard, and Daniel must each map the boundaries of their own loyalties and morality. In the Shadows of the Mosquito Constellation is a story of adventure, politics, and love in a brave new world where the rules have both changed, and stayed the same.
That is a fabulous cover!
