Funky Cover Friday

I know, I’m sorry I’ve slacked off with these fantabulous cover posts! My life has been a whirlwind these past few months. I recently moved into a new apartment so it’s been a flurry of apartment hunting, viewings, and then moving and organizing. It’s hard enough to keep up reading and reviewing consistently, but my love of books TRUMPS ALL!

But back to it! This Funky Cover Friday I want to talk about a cover for an upcoming book from RandomHouse: Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Buried Giant. Now those of you  who follow me on social media know that this is a title that I’m especially looking forward to. It’s been 10 years (10 years!) since Never Let Me Go. About time, Ishiguro. About time.


Ishiguro called this story “the story of a marriage.” Axl and Beatrice set out in search of their lost son and on their journey rediscover their forgotten love for one another.

This cover is really contemplative and quiet. Ishiguro’s covers don’t need more than this. It’s simple, it’s artistic, and it’s beautiful. Plus, I love the font used for the title. It’s reminiscent of medieval  texts and brings to mind a sense of folklore and fantasy.
