July : My Month in Covers

Hi everyone, hope you’ve all had a lovely July and the weather has treated you gently.  I’ve had a slow sort of month in some respects.   Not many books this month as I’ve been too busy with other things.  Anyhow, feast your eyes on this months covers.  I’ve also included my SPFBO covers and my update is here for the first month of the competition.

And here are my SPFBO covers.  I’ve read at least the first 30% of all of these and chosen one book to read completely:

    Ooh I love a good cover post. 🙂 Cry Havoc is pretty cool.

    I had a slow reading month too, I’m not sure what happened. Oh well! I just love the cover of Shadows of the Short Days.

      I love that cover too – it wasn’t really a book for me though, I did struggle with it. It’s a strange mix of weird and horror and I was never able to really connect – and as you know, I do read some rather weird books and don’t usually struggle. Perhaps the two main POV characters didn’t help. Anyway, others might love the strange, raw grittiness of it all and the dark horror but it didn’t work it’s magic for me which is a shame.

    I recently got a copy of This is How You Lose The TIme War, i’m super excited to read it! Gods of Jade and Shadow looks fantastic!

    The Narrows has awesome cover art!

    curious – what do you think so far of Children of the Different?

    • @lynnsbooks

      Children of the Different, to the point I got up to, was a very easy read, unusual, post apocalyptic, centring around two young people who are twins. It seems that following the death of the majority of the population young people go through something called the ‘changing’ which feels a little like going through puberty I guess, but when they come out of their trance like state they’re either feral or have some sort of unusual gift. It kind of reminded me a little of the Shymalan film The Village – where certain people have chosen to live their lives basically and without technology – but there are still people in the cities who have cars, etc. I thought it made a good start but it did feel quite young in some ways, almost middle grade.

    Slowly catching up – I finished Jade and Shadow, am about to finish The Toll, and hopefully will start Time War very soon!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Wow, you’re smashing it. Can’t wait to see what you make of them all. I loved the ending to Jade and Shadow – which might be a bit odd in some ways but it just really worked for me and I would definitely pick up another book is she wrote one where that left off. The Toll, I enjoyed, but not nearly as much as Family Plot, it just didn’t give me the creeps and it had a slightly unfinished or disjointed feel to it somehow. I did enjoy the Time War but I don’t imagine that it will be for everyone. I just finished Shadows of the Short Days and that was just too weird, and I do enjoy weird. I need to try and organise my thoughts for that one.

    Love the variety of covers! Lots of blues, I dig that. Looks like a pretty good month overall. I’m hoping I can read This is How You Lose the Time War soon. Right now I’m still trying to finish up my Summer TBR and I don’t think I’ll have time to squeeze it in until September.
