Chuckles Cover Love #72 CW Snyder


If there is one thing that makes a great book even better, it is when it has a cover that we love! The cover design is what catches the eye as we browse through a bookstore shelf or check out the Amazon or Goodreads recommendations. The right cover makes me look closer at a book, to read the blurb and maybe make a purchase. A poor cover might mean I never look at the blurb at all.

This Week! CW Snyder!

I have no interest in fairy tale or other retellings but I do like the cover of this one!

  2. I avoid retellings like the plague (sorry everyone, but when something has already been done, that's final to me), but this book is SO MUCH MORE than that. Scratch that - it ISN'T a retelling. Alice in Wonderland is merely a starting point for a book that (I'm quoting from my review) weaves lots of literary and mythological references into a fresh story, revisits and enhance tropes, and contains elements of horror and gore. It's an odd duck too, since the lead is on the younger side (less than 14, I believe - it's never actually stated), but the book has got an adult vibe. Definitely worth the read though.

  7. I'm strongly drawn to read this from the cover alone, plus Roberta's enthusiasm is helping too :-)
