Covergasms♥ is an original Book♥Hooker feature that discusses all things cover related!
This edition of Covergasms♥ is brought to you by flowers: they smell nice and look pretty! I love flowers, and have been quite inspired by them this summer. They are extremely beautiful, and come in so many different varieties, I just can't get enough!
So I was just surfin' the web (do people say that anymore?) last night, you know, looking for new literary prospects, when I stumbled upon a few covers that I loved, and noticed that they all showcased flowers. Which is awesome. Like I said before :)
1 & 2) Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood
After I had Margaret Atwood books recommended to me (I loves me some dystopian!) I of course decided to look 'em up, and found the first two gorgeous covers waiting for me. There are many different covers out there for these two books, but I think that I like these best, and they are the ones that are offered to me at Chapters. I must admit that they aren't conventionally what I would find aesthetically pleasing, but these vibrant covers evoke really strong and intriguing feelings in me. It could just be all psychological, but the covers look just so good, and seem to promise me well written stories and interesting plots. We shall have to see, as it won't be long until these classics are on my shelves!
3) A Long Long Sleep
Just released this week, A Long Long Sleep, boasts a kind of fairy tale, dystopian structure, along with a gorgeous cover. The flowers truly add to the vintage-almost recycled-view of sleeping beauty which matched the plot to a T. Rose wakes up to a new world after 62 years of suspended sleep, and must navigate the new society with people she doesn't know. Sounds good enough to me! The summary also mentions that guy that kisses her awake, which I think should add just enough romantic pizzazz to fulfill that part of my reading needs. This one seems like a recipe for a pretty good one.
4) Shine by Lauren Myracle
This cover instantly caught my attention. It has the exact colour story and warmth that I look for in pretty much everything. It seems so vintage and sepia-like. The flower is so simple, and the background is just delicious. It matches perfectly how I feel about the story itself. The summary describes a mysteriously scary, deeply emotional journey alongside an interesting small-town dynamic. This one is a sure page-turner.
Hope you liked my summer-themed book picks that are as interesting and unique as they are stunningly beautiful. Let me know if you've already delved into these
Earth laughs in Flowers--Cheers & Enjoy♥
