Forgive me bloggers, I’ve bought this books for their covers!

  Today I am joining my blogger friend Umut’s meme, which is something I *often* do, buying and judging books by their covers. With a quick rumble in my book jungle I’ve grabbed those 3 pretty chicks to represent you! This beautiful, gorgeous cover was actually a charity shop bargain. I wish it was a first edition, but sadly, it is a 2nd print. I’ve never read Zoe Heller but heard about her being praised, a lot. When Joel Litvinoff is felled by a stroke, his wife, Audrey, uncovers a secret that forces her to re-examine her ideas about their forty-year marriage. Joel’s children will soon have to come to terms with this unsettling discovery themselves, but for the time being, they are grappling with their own dilemmas. Rosa is being pressed to make a commitment to religion. Karla is falling in love with the owner of a newspaper concession and Lenny is back on drugs. In the course of battling their own demons and each other, every member of the family is called upon to re-examine long-held articles of faith and to decide what – if anything – they still believe in. The blurb sounds really promising, and I couldn’t turn my back to this pretty cover that promises a witty and read worthy novel. Joanne Harris’s A Pocketful of Crows is beautiful to look at. I fell in love with this cover the moment I saw it!!! The […]

Similar Sundays – More Lookalike Book Covers

    On this lovely sunday it’s mother’s day in the UK so happy mum’s day to everyone who is either biological or emotional mum- no matter if you have a child or an animal 🙂 Hope everyone is spending good time either with loved ones or good memories. So I am going to continue similar book covers theme! Our Endless Numbered Days vs The Winter’s Child The same style of design is used in both covers, although they do not immediately remind me of each other. Probably because colours are different! Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller Peggy Hillcoat is eight years old when her survivalist father, James, takes her from their home in London to a remote hut in the woods and tells her that the rest of the world has been destroyed. Deep in the wilderness, Peggy and James make a life for themselves. They repair the hut, bathe in water from the river, hunt and gather food in the summers and almost starve in the harsh winters. They mark their days only by the sun and the seasons. When Peggy finds a pair of boots in the forest and begins a search for their owner, she unwittingly begins to unravel the series of events that brought her to the woods and, in doing so, discovers the strength she needs to go back to the home and mother she thought she’d lost. After Peggy’s return to civilization, […]
