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'.
Happy Families by Janey Fraser
I read Janey Fraser's The Au Pair last year and loved the cover because of the little details giving the cartoon people character and I love the cover for Happy Families for the same reason. The teenager has his skateboard at his feet and is busy on his phone while there is havoc within the house. The two younger children are scrapping downstairs, knocking ietms over while the mother is telling off another child upstairs. While all of this is happening, the cat is cleaning itself in the window, being truly cat-like and not giving a shit.
I love all these little details and, in a way, it's telling a story itself. The title may say Happy Families but you already know that isn't going to be the case.
