Cover Crush: Circling the Sun by Paula McLain

We all know we shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but in today's increasingly competitive market, a memorable jacket can make or break sales.

I am not a professional, but I am a consumer and much as I loath admitting it, jacket design is one of the first things I notice when browsing the shelves at Goodreads and Amazon. My love of cover art is what inspired Cover Crush, a weekly post dedicated to those prints that have captured my attention and/or piqued my interest. Enjoy!

I like bold colors and have no problem admitting the bright tones on Paula McLain's Circling the Sun caught my attention, but it was the model's pose and attire that drew me in. Neither is particularly feminine and I find myself wondering if breaking cultural expectation is a theme explored in the narrative.
