BOOKS AS GOOD AS THEIR COVERS

You voted, and we listened. We asked for your input on our next Nothing But Vibes display, as we were stuck between two options. Did we want Romantasy or Books as Good as Their Covers? It was close, but…

🎊 Books as Good as Their Covers won! 🎊

We’re all guilty of it. That not-so-elusive ‘Cover Buy’ where we don’t care what’s inside the book because we are so enamored by a beautiful, shocking, exciting cover you can’t look away from. It’s like a siren call, dragging you into the pages.

Isn’t it wonderful when it works out that you are in love with the story inside after?

We’ve put together quite a display here for you at 2nd St.

We all gasped when the cover for Jen Beagin’s Big Swiss dropped. Alexa was the first of us to read, and she said about it, ‘Have you ever read Ottessa Moshfegh’s My Year of Rest and Relaxation? Imagine the narrator decided to stay awake, lay off the Ambien, and got a job transcribing sex therapy recordings…’

Ballad For Sophie is a stunning graphic novel, and the art on the cover is just the start. The rest of the book is a psychedelic dip into beautiful and grotesque art depicting a story with the type of empathy that can only be shown through the stroke of a pen. Ballad for Sophie is for everyone, especially those who love Elton John, Bowie, classical music, the 70s, rock and roll. It is a masterpiece of fiction with a sympathetic anti-hero who you’ll love, then hate, then love again.

Do you have a book whose cover you simply adore? Let us know, and you may see it on our display!
