Spring is here in all its glory and to celebrate this fact this post is about wonderfully colourful book covers.
Some non fiction, some fiction from historical to sci-fi but all of them with a bit of rainbow.
by Robert Macfarlane
An exploration of the world under our feet with from a man who could describe just about anything and make it beautiful.
by Deborah Levy
A trippy, time shifting novel set partially in London and partially in East Berlin before the wall came down. Longlisted for the Booker a couple of years ago.
by Jeff Vandermeer
A mind bending sci-fi from the crazy imagination of Mr Vandermeer. Set in a world full of gigantic predatory bears a woman scratches out an existence when she comes across an infant shape-shifting creature which she calls Borne.
by Daisy Johnson
I love the cover of this book but DNF’d it when I finally got my hands on a copy. About living with a mother with dementia.
by Elizabeth Gilbert
I didn’t really love Eat Pray Love but this book about creativity is really good, and the cover is pretty.
by Kiran Millwood Hargrave
What happens when all the men are killed at sea and the women manage to get on with their lives. Set in medieval Norway about the power of the church and superstition.
7 record of a spaceborn few
by Becky Chambers
I love all of Becky Chambers books but this one has the prettiest cover. Your can read my full review here.
by Rene Denfeld
A powerful and sensitive book about a woman who has a gift of being able to find lost children as she was a lost child herself. The cover is pretty too.
by Hermann Hesse
This is an old favourite of mine. A society based on this game, the culmination of art, culture and intellect which we never really understand. Ok. Hesse can’t write women, so he doesen’t but that aside it’s a masterpiece.
by Jane Heaey
Our children never really understand us, this is the curse of motherhood. Two POV’s, one a mother who never knew her own mother and the other her daughter who has spent her teenage years in hospital with Leukaemia. A complex novel with a pretty cover.
