It is sunglasses time! Hopefully because it is nice and sunny where you are, but also because I’ve gone mad. I suspect it’s my Gudrun Sjödén genes speaking to me. And, by default, to you as well.
Gudrun Sjödén‘s clothes are what any self-respecting Swedish librarian wears, and the clothes are frequently stripey and full of matching, or non-matching, colours. That will be why I like this book cover so much.
I thought after our little cover discussion the other day, that I might occasionally treat you to covers I like. And I think we decided that good covers – or bad ones – don’t necessarily have much to do with the story inside or its quality.
I suspect that Mad Love is quite a readable book, at the lighter end of young teen fiction. I haven’t read it. I might still, because it survived my latest cull. Partly because the story vaguely attracts me, and then there is the cover.
There’s not a lot you can do with pinks and red. Wearing it is hard. Too intense for a room colour scheme. But like this it is perfect. The heart shape is also good. I like hearts. My watch repair man recognises me from my watch strap with hearts on it.
And I know it was International Women’s Day yesterday, and I should not flog pink. But I like pink. Not as much as purple, obviously. But as I move more towards witch’s blacks for myself, I need some cheerful stuff nearby.
