These are Mira's UK covers for Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia Grey series and I want! I've always been a sucker for a matched set and these are just so delightful and fun. Particularly in light of the fact that my original copies will always and forever be hodgepodge as they made a major series cover art shift with the release of Silent on the Moor. Sigh. I particularly like the "A wickedly witty Lady Julia Grey mystery" tagline on the second two. But since these are only available in the UK, the total cost is currently prohibitive. So for now I will simply covet from afar...
I can't quit Jennifer Echols . Not that I really try that hard, but I read her new ones and often feel as though I'm still searching for that one in possession of that certain something that will make me feel the way Going Too Far did. Like I couldn't put it it down. And definitely like I didn't hate either of the main characters after the fact. Well, I found it with Such a Rush . I read this 300+ pager in a single night, which clears up the question of whether or not I couldn't put it down. And I finished it definitely not hating either of the main characters. I didn't finish it loving them both unreservedly, though. I loved Leah with my whole heart from page one and that never changed. My feelings regarding one of the Hall brothers remain complicated. More to come on this in a bit. On a side note, I'm delighted that Such a Rush is Ms. Echols' hardcover debut. It's a meticulously designed book, a pleasure to hold in my hands as I stayed up way
oh angie these are gorgeous. i likey.ReplyDelete
Alisha, aren't they? *wants*ReplyDelete
ooo. You know, thebookdepository.com has 2 of the 3 here and they have free shipping. But not Silent in the Grave otherwise I'd be doing what my best friend does when I shop with her: "Buy it, buy it, buy IT!"ReplyDelete
they look a little like the mrs beeton cookbook covers. very cute.ReplyDelete
Janice, I did not know! Thank you! I will keep my eyes peeled over there. I may, in fact, now be in trouble...ReplyDelete
Hagelrat, yep, a definite old school cookbook vibe going. Fun.
I love them Angie! Especially since I wanted to cover Silent on the Moor so no one would see what I was reading. If they knew how good it was they wouldn't judge, but some people do judge a book by its cover:) like my husband.ReplyDelete
Emily, lol! I hear ya. I hate have to justify what's inside to someone because of a cover that does not appeal to them. This set would be a perfect one to have and to lend.ReplyDelete
I love those covers!!! So much better than the US ones.ReplyDelete
Oh I love these covers!!! Bummer that they so expensive! Now I know what I should read this weekend!! More in this series!ReplyDelete
Amy, they're so stylized and fun. I like it when the covers for a series are both distinctive and cohesive. These fit that nicely.ReplyDelete
Caffey, I adore this series and I hope they treat you well. Let me know!
I love the covers! And, like you, I'm a sucker for matched sets. I'll have to think about asking my friend in London to get them for me. Karen S.ReplyDelete
Karen, that's a good idea! So nice to have friends in London...:)ReplyDelete
