Time again for another visit with the #CoverHo gals! That's Jennifer from Book-alicious Mama and myself. With summer coming up fast we decided to tackle the infamous BEACH READ this week. I've chosen three up-and-coming books that will be published this summer, and I've chosen two books that you shouldn't miss if you haven't read them already.
I love a good retelling or take-off of a traditional or classic tale. Alias Hook, by Lisa Jensen, grabbed me right away with its expansion of Captain Hook's story as well as the gorgeous illustration.
I should be ashamed of myself. I have yet to read Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline, but that doesn't mean I'm not excited about his new release, Armada. And my love for the cover is partially for it's old-school Atari appeal.
Season to Taste, by Natalie Young, is just gorgeous. I'm a sucker for illustrated food. It's a thing.
What are you waiting for? Seriously? Boxers and Saints, by Gene Luen Yang. This two-book set will please your beach-loving need for something quick, but it won't let you down with a lack of heart. A fast read with a great soul.
I always crave food and farming books in the summer. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, by Barbara Kingsolver, is not to be missed. I pet my copy regularly because it is BEAUTIFUL inside and out.
