Happy Friday, SEers! Mae here today with a Friday book cover share. I can’t wait to see what you think of this one!
In the northern hemisphere, it’s the height of the summer season. That means tourists at coastal towns and beaches filled with families and couples on vacation. I still remember what a great thrill it was watching Jaws back in ’75 and how it forever changed what I feel when I step into the ocean (which admittedly, isn’t too frequent these days unless it’s someplace tropical). My husband and I still watch Jaws every summer, but if you think Peter Benchley’s novel is the one I’m going to trot out—uh, no.
I first saw the cover for Devour on my Twitter feed, where it screamed for me to take a closer look. Monster, boat—yeah! If we’re looking solely at covers, this one is hard to beat. Anyone who is a fan of monster fiction (raising hand) would find it hard to pass over.
What do you think? Scary? Creepy? Creature-feature fantastic? Does it do the job and set the tone?
Yes, I bought the book. Isn’t that what a good cover should entice a reader to do? Even if this isn’t your preferred genre, do you think the cover works? Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments. Ready, set, go!
