And onto the Shelf Candy!
My Shelf Candy for this week:
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
Synopsis can be found here.
There is so much beauty in this book cover. The highlighted face peaking out right side up in the red. The mirrored identical face, upside down with the black hair. The eyes of the wolf and the swirls of the blending of the images. The faces are girlie, young and angel like in contrast to the dark menacing presence of the wolf and his stalking eyes.
I saw this book in Borders, yes Borders when Borders was still around, and I bought it right away. I was lucky that this was perfect for me, a re-telling of Little Red Riding Hood.
It's not the fairy tale you remember. In fact, it's much darker and more sinister than I was expecting.
A fun story with an edge. Like the cover.
