Each week we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favourite covers with that characteristic.
This week's characteristic is cars. So, here are my picks:
5. A Prayer for Owen Meany (1989) by John Irving
This isn't actually the well-known cover for this book, but I rather like it. The old truck in front of the barn creates an amazing image.
4. We Tell Ourselves Stories in Order to Live: Collected Nonfiction (2006) by Joan Didion
This is a collection of the author's nonfiction. I like very much this cover, especially the colour.
3. The Long Goodbye (1953) by Raymond Chandler
Philip Marlowe has always been one of my favourite detectives. So, when I saw that this week's characteristic was cars this cover came into my mind. I like that it shows only a detail of the car, it suits a mystery novel.
2. Mobile Library (2015) by David Whitehouse
What an amazing cover is this! I love the colours, I love the books that are shaped like birds.
1. The Hundred-Year House (2014) by Rebecca Makkai
Ok, the car is on the background but this cover is gorgeous!
