The Artsy Shelf

Many many huge thanks to Kay from The Neverending Shelf, for her fantastic guest post!

When Heather asked for volunteers to animate her blog while she was away on vacation, I immediately thought that an Artsy Shelf feature on a summer theme would be fun. For the Artsy Shelf, I usually group six covers that have a similarity in theme or color, and at this time of the year, it sounds perfect to look at some amazing covers featuring the beach!

It’s often difficult to pick a favorite, especially when all of these covers so beautifully present the beach and the sea. But, I do have some that I like more than the others : Apologize, apologize is one of my favorite covers, and I’ve been meaning to read the book since I first saw it. I love the colors, and dogs always look like they have so much fun playing in the water!
My second favorite is The Summer of Skinny Dipping – which I haven’t read either. What does the trick in this one, for me, is the lighting. It just feels so summery!

Now I would love to hear your thoughts! Do beach book covers make you want to read a book? Which one would catch your attention at first sight?
