This year I decided to start a Book Of The Month feature to give a special mention to the wonderful books I have read. So I thought why not celebrate wonderful book covers too?
They say don't judge a book by its cover but we all do, right?
Feel free to add your thoughts on the covers or even suggest your own 'cover stars'.
First up is A French Affair by Katie Fforde:
I'm a big fan of cartoon covers but this one is a bit different to my usual type. I usually hone in on covers with silhouette figures or young, frivolous characters (quite often with a dog). But this cover really appeals to me. It's so elegant with the shades of purple of the grapes and the wording. I'm left wondering who this sophisticated woman is and, more importantly, who she is waiting for as there are two glasses of wine on the table. Though I suppose she could be thirsty. Or a keen drinker.
I think the cover is simple and beautiful and I can't wait to read the book.
