Uncovered (95): The Shining Girls

I am a girl who judges books by their covers and Uncovered is a weekly post on my blog where I share a cover that I am currently lusting over. Enjoy!

This week's cover love is for The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes. I am not sure what it is about this cover that I find so striking but I really like it. It's pretty simple but the bold red is very eye catching and I like that it creates a frame for the cover. The wasp (bee?) and the styling of the woman's face and hair give the book a sort of vintage look. The expression on the woman's face is somewhat flat and emotionless, giving the whole thing a sort of creepy vibe, that I actually like. And it turns out that this book is about a serial killer, another creepy thing that I like. :)

Hope you guys liked this week's pick. Let me know what you think of it in the comments below. Have a great weekend!

  1. We were discussing on an art thread on pinterest how a single eye I'd very mysterious. I think this cover is another example. Very cool Uncovered! :-)
