FAVORITE BOOK COVERS
IN 2015

Dec 30 is for
#AMonthofFaves:  Favorite Book Covers From My Reads This Year – what did you like about each one?

Here are my 6 favorites book covers of the books I read this year

 

And why?

  1. Race to Tibet = gorgeous painting! With interesting idea for the calligraphy, as well as neat details all around the cover, really precious
  2. The Room = whimsy 3D Effect, and perfect for the story
  3. Floats the Dark Shadow = Gothic view of Paris that already puts you so well in the mood of this creepy book
  4. Look Who’s Back = awesome minimalist look for the best satire ever
  5. Armada = great work with letters for this fun sci-fi
  6. So You Don’t Get Lost in the Neighborhood = black and white like Modiano’s book, about communication or lack of it, with a watermarked Paris map? right on!

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK

rating systemrating systemrating systemrating system

Thanks to Quercus for sending me Look Who’s Back. Alas, it did not make it on the short list neither for the official IFFP list nor for our Shadow list, but still, I personally think this is a wonderful book and certainly the most hilarious literary novel I have read for years!
