Welcome to another helping of Covet the Covers. This week I’m featuring Mary Robinette Kowal’s covers, which are a mix of fantasy and science fiction. Her Lady Astronaut series is one of the highlights of my 2020 reading year – see my reviews of The Calculating Stars, The Fated Sky and The Relentless Moon. I’m looking forward to tucking into The Glamourist Histories series in the coming year.
Oooo, I agree on those first three covers–they are cosmic in scope yet intimate with the character presence. Plus the colors really make those covers pop.
Thank you, Jean:)). And a very Happy New Year to you, my friend.xxx There is another set of covers for this series – but this is my favourite:))
Wow, what stunning covers! I especially love Forest of Memory, my eye keeps being drawn to it and now I’m going to look the book up to find out more. 🙂
Thank you, Hayley – they are lovely, aren’t they? She is an amazing author and her Lady Astronaut series has been one of the reading highlights of 2020 for me:)).
I’m also thinking of starting The Glamourist Histories series. A lot of bloggers read those books this year and I’m jealous!
Book envy! It’s a terrible thing… I find that when I turn an unbecoming shade of green, it clashes with my hair! So I’m absolutely going to avoid it this year.
The covers for the Glamourists series are the most gorgeous ever… 🙂
They really, really are, aren’t they? I’ll be honest – it was those scrummy covers that hooked my attention. And the fact that the woman can WRITE, of course!
Really outstanding covers this time, Hon.
Thank you, Rae:)). I was in the mood for something lush and beautiful…
These are all so gorgeous! Forest of Memory is especially striking.
Thank you, Suzanne – they are lovely covers, aren’t they? Kowal is one of my discoveries of the year:))
Lovely cover display. I would love to read the Glamourist series. I think my favourites are The Relentless Moon – something about the angle – and Forest of Memory which has a beautiful, almost ghostly effect.
Thank you, Lynn:). And yes… I was very impressed with the overall quality of Kowal’s covers. There are an alternative set of covers for The Lady Astronaut series – but I went with the one that I prefer:))
