My March Covers

Every month I post a review of my previous months.  A short synopsis of what I’ve read and what events I’ve taken part in.  To preface this I’m going to show my month of reads in book covers the day before (February’s here).  Here are my March covers:

    The cover for Snakewood really is eye-catching regardless of its rather erm.. interesting reviews!

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s a brilliant cover. Tricky to get into the story at first but then it does hook you.

        Have you reviewed this yet Lynn? I tried searching for it on your site earlier but couldn’t find it.

        Yes, I’ve read it. I struggled to get into it and would say I read at least a third before it finally engaged me. I don’t think it’s a bad book but the beginning is so choppy, there’s such a lot to take on board and quite a lot of characters and the chapters are quite short to start off with so it feels like there isn’t much chance to sink your teeth into anything. On the whole, I think it redeemed itself a little and I gave it 3.5. I guess the author was going for originality and unfortunately it hasn’t worked for everyone. Plus the chapters that were poorly written – as though the person telling his part of the story wasn’t maybe as literate – I understand why the author chose to do that, and it does break up the different voices and also give you the feeling that the character is speaking to you directly almost – but it’s also a little grating!

      Have you read Snakewood yet proxyfish? It really is the strangest read when trying to determine if you like it! Even now, I’m still not sure…

      • proxyfish

        Haha, no I haven’t! Though I do want to despite any mixed things I’ve heard. I suppose there’s only one way to find out though!

      • dancrossbookblog

        Haha that’s it I suppose, pick it up. You’ll have to let us know what you think!

    So many great books! I just started Fellside, and I absolutely loved Every Heart a Doorway. And that cover of Northwoods is really speaking to me:-)

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes – I thought Every Heart a Doorway was great – I wish I’d known you were reading it – I was desperate to speak to somebody without leaving spoilers!!!
      I’m really enjoying the Bill Schweigart books so far.

    It’s funny, in March, I found I had a lot of deep greens and reddish colors in my covers, whereas in April, blue and yellow reign supreme! Fellside and The Everything Box just leaps out at me 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yep, Spring has sprung! Well, nearly! I enjoyed Fellside. It wasn’t what I was expecting, although, that being said, I’m not quite sure what I was expecting!

    Snakewood and Jane Steele really stand out, probably because all the other covers are blue or a dark, grimy effect to them. I must also say I am rather unnerved by the cover for The Importance of Being Ernest. I get what it is trying to show but it is creepy, especially for such a funny play!

    • @lynnsbooks

      They’re both really good covers and quite dramatic in different ways. The Importance of Being Ernest. It is an odd cover isn’t it – I’m not sure why I choose it! There must have been plenty of others to choose from!

    I checked with my library the other day, and they do have a copy of Jane Steele. It is time to return books, so J.S. is on my list to check out!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes!! I can’t wait to see what you make of it – will you try and stop over and leave me a link in case I miss your post or I’m away! I try not to miss posts but sometimes it just happens!
      Lynn 😀

    Both the covers for “Northwoods” and “Quiet Neighbors” give me chills just looking at them…. Which means they must be delightfully scary! 😉

    I love the cover for Snakewood. The most eye-catching thing for Fellside is the picture of The Girl with All the Gifts on it.

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know – I kind of wish they hadnt put that green sticker effect on the book to be honest!
      Lynn 😀
