Shelf Candy Saturday! (35)

Hello! Welcome to Shelf Candy Saturday and thank you to Five Alarm Book Reviews for hosting!

June is about over and the summer is in full swing!

So let's give you a cover to cool you down a bit-

Some winter chill may be in order.

This week's Shelf Candy is:

Beneath The Shadows by Sara Foster
Synopsis can be found here.

I find this cover to be so beautiful and intriguing!

I love the thin, frozen branches, reaching like a canopy over the old fashioned black stroller. The white, untouched snow is haunting. I love how there are no visible footprints around the stroller. How did it get there? And why does it sit there, with no one around? A quiet wooden scene, the tall thin trunks of the trees, the silent scene.

I love the bold red lettering of the title and the smaller scripted font. The words "beneath" and "shadows" really stand out, creating an eery feeling.

Yes, it is the middle of the summer.

But it gave you a little chill, didn't it?


  1. Gorgeous pick! I love how simple, but kind of creepy the cover is. Plus you picked a snowy cover in summer! I love reading wintery books in summer (mostly because I'm a winter girl lol).

    My shelf candy is here if you'd like a look :)

  2. This book cover is just...STUNNING. The image is hauntingly beautiful, and the lettering just makes it all so eerie-looking... The stark, snow-laden branches do indeed form a kind of canopy over the stroller. And you're right -- we just don't know how it got there...

    Thanks for stopping me in my tracks with this cover!! : )

  3. I have loved this cover since the moment that I first saw it. I am a New Yorker, so I love the snow covered trees. That older style baby carriage out there on its own is creepy. Yikes! It definitely makes a person want to pick it up to find out more. Thank you for sharing it.

  4. haven't heard of this one but cool cover. reminds me of a more realistic version of the replacement.

  5. I've had my eye on this book. And it was the cover the caught my attention. It's a weird and unsettling image. Simple but impactful. Great pick!

  6. Yeah I don't mind something chilly right now! And mysterious! There's too much in the open during summer:p
