#CoverHo: Spring Cover Picks

The #coverhos are back again! Jennifer from Book-alicious Mama and myself are presenting you some our fave spring covers. Now, what do we mean by that? Spring releases? Covers that remind us of spring? YES!


Both Sous Chef: 24 Hours on the Line, by Michael Gibney and The Vacationers, by Emma Straub, are spring releases, and I loooove these covers. The chunky script and vivid orange of Sous Chef were perfect for grabbing my attention. And The Vacationers is so stinkin' serene (and I love the typography). Here in Texas, we start feeling like summer halfway through spring, so this one hits just the right note for me. Swimming? Anyone? 


Now, these are a couple of books that I've already read that make me think of spring. No spring list would be complete without something by Sarah Addison Allen, and Garden Spells just happens to be my fave with all of its beautiful foliage and rich colors.  Glaciers, by Alexis M. Smith is a winner with it's beautiful sky blue and gorgeous texture. I also have a tendency to shop more during the spring for new clothes and jewelry, so this book (and cover) immediately popped into my head. 


Last, but certainly not least, is Mary McCartney's cookbook, FOOD: Vegetarian Home Cooking. Our garden is planted and sprouting, so I'm already thinking of ways to use all the veggies we'll have piled up on our table soon. What better way to brainstorm than by using this GORGEOUS cookbook? The photography really is stunning. 

What are your favorite spring covers? New releases or just "springy"?

    1. Crap! I wish I'd thought of including something of the Threads. Maybe Wind in the Willows? Or The Secret Garden?

    1. Me too. We got near freezing last night in TX and that's just a crock in April.

  7. I cannot stop laughing. I know that Sous Chef is on the list because it's a spring release, but I keep thinking that in Andi-land Spring=Knives. Because why not?

    1. Haha! Maybe that's partially true. I start butchering a lot of burgers for the grill this time o'year.

  11. While it's unlikely that I'll ever be a vegetarian home cook - I'm loving that cover. :)

    Thanks for linking up with Spread the Love! :D

  12. Those are all wonderful covers! Just spent the weekend with my mom and she read Sous Chef in a day. (Can you tell it rained all weekend?) She bought it because she was attracted to the cover!

  13. I'm been a bit underwhelmed by covers this year. Last year was phenomenal cover year for me, so it's hard to compete. That being said, that Food cover is fantastic.
