Blogging through June with #bookaday, and today is…

19. Favourite cover

glass-books-dream-eaters 6411440

Firstly, Glass Books of the Dream Eaters. Glass. Books. Of the BLOODY Dream Eaters.

Honestly, that cover. It is bewitchingly good. So bewitchingly good that three other close friends have all started this book several times, because how can a book with this cover be bad?

Well, it is. But do you know what? Every second of reading it dragged interminably, and this cover still makes me want to finish it.

Secondly, The Gates by John Connolly. It’s not necessarily this specific cover that I love, although is is marvellous, but the artist in general – Rob Ryan. He makes beautiful art, and I love it whenever it’s on book covers. One of my life aims is to write a book for which he does the cover.
