Cover Crush: In the Shadow of Denali

Cover Crush

We can all say that you should never judge a book by its cover, but I guarantee that we all have done so at least once! Cover Crush is designed to feature some of those covers that have caught the eye as a standout on the bookshelf.

I will admit that I have Alaska on the brain since I will be going there this coming summer and we will be going to Denali National Park.  I like that this cover is sort of three images: the wilderness of the Park, the girl (who I assume is the heroine), and a bustling frontier town at the bottom.  I like that the town is in sepia tone and the nature is is bright color – it contrasts the natural with the industrial – I wonder if that plays into the feelings of the main character, like feeling free out in nature.  It also doesn’t scream historical romance to me, which is refreshing.. 

What are your thoughts on this cover?

I wonder what my friends are crushing on this week? Let’s check it out: A Bookaholic Swede, 2 Kids and Tired Books, Layered Pages, A Literary Vacation.

  1. It is a pretty cover. The train, the lady and the mountain give a feeling of dream keeping. She doesn't seem like a person without an adventure in mind. She wants to live vibrantly. I think of the song "Climb Every Mountain."

    1. Yes, I can agree about trying to attain a dream.
