Day 5 #7Days7Covers #CoverCrush

For a week I‘ll post a favorite cover each day and tag someone new to join in.

I couldn‘t of course let this week go by without a #Persephone edition. I hope to read this one later this month.

@thebluestocking do you want to share your seven favorite covers? No explanation needed.

#withmylittlestickofblackpoolrock was the most difficult prompt! Since Blackpool is a coastal resort town my mind did go to the first Persephone I read which was the tagged book about a family holiday to Bognor in the 1920s. This is a lovely, gentle and melancholic story about a happy family who know this will be the last summer together as the children are now reaching adulthood. Highly recommended!😍

Ruthiella @LeahBergen I figured you‘d loved it since it is a Persephone title!😍 6d
Centique Oh man, an English seaside resort in the 20s - I‘m in! 2d
Ruthiella @Centique It‘s a very sweet book-no drama, just a family‘s realization that it‘s their last summer as such. 😍 2d

Woohoo! Congratulations, @GrilledCheeseSamurai , on your big 100k! 🎉🎉🎉 What a great giveaway! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

What does Litsy mean to me? I must say, it has very much become a social “checking in” time for me over the last couple of years and I look forward to seeing what everyone is up to (and reading) each day.

I‘ll tag a “new-to-me” Litsy user, @DavidDiamond !

The blank wall: a novel of suspense | Elisabeth Sanxay Holding

Pickpick

Both a domestic suspense and an in depth character study of a wife trying to hold her household together while her husband is away at war, this novel describes the lengths this woman will go to in order to protect her family, even as it gets her involved in murder, extortion, and the criminal underworld.

Miss Buncles Book | D.E. Stevenson

Really sweet and funny novel about small town manners. Loved all the different characters living in Miss Buncle‘s town and unwillingly in the pages of her book.
