It’s our first Cover Awe in January! This is where we discuss beautiful covers we’ve seen and open up discussions on elements we like versus what doesn’t really work for us on book covers.
Amanda: I need to go a major career change so I can become the NHL commissioner and change the rules of hockey to allow for shirtless skating.
Elyse: Well hello, sir.
Sarah: Those blades are awful sharp. Says the mom.
Amanda: Well…the important bits are covered.
Sarah: I suppose you’re right. Nipples are probably not vital.
CarrieS: I just think he looks cold. But I like the use of red and gray.
Amanda: I love all the nuances of this cover. The barbed wire that look like stripes. The hair covering the face.
Sarah: I love that the illustration is both vulnerable and powerful.
CarrieS: You had me at “Resist.”
Amanda: Very relevant to our “silly” podcast episode where I professed my love for men in eyepatches. Probably because of all of my early anime watching.
What’s he keeping under that patch? A girl’s gotta know!
Sarah: I hope the crow is a talking crow. Unless that’s a raven?
CarrieS: Not my fave but I do like the bird.
Elyse: I am really drawn to warm colors especially pinks, purples and gold. So this caught my eye immediately.
Amanda: I agree that it feels very warm and cozy.
Sarah: I’m terrible, but alas this does nothing for me. I’m sorry!
CarrieS: The colors made me actually gasp.
