Funky Cover Friday


I added this book to my to-read list on Goodreads based mostly on the cover. Well, I should say that this striking cover is why  I investigated this book in the first place. A short synopsis according to Goodreads: “A bloodstained journey into the dark heart of the music industry, Boring Girls traces Rachel’s deadly coming-of-age.”

I find the cover for Boring Girls to be absolutely stunning. I can’t stop looking at it. It’s so beautifully simple in the colouring that each element stands out and speaks volumes. Although the word “boring” is in the title, the cover image is anything but. The splash of red makes the text jump right off the page.  There is visual interest in the texture of the image. It’s bold with a somewhat sinister element to it. It grabs your attention completely.
