Hello everybody! I am finally back with the meme / series created by Nikki @ The night is dark and full of books. For Searching Saturday, each Saturday has a new topic and you talk about books that fit into that topic to add to your TBR or just to inform your readers about. For info on how to join in, click here. Without further hesitation, let’s get into this Searching Saturday.
This week’s topic is Beautiful Covers
A Separation by Katie Kitamura
“A mesmerizing, psychologically taut novel about a marriage’s end and the secrets we all carry.
A young woman has agreed with her faithless husband: it’s time for them to separate. For the moment it’s a private matter, a secret between the two of them. As she begins her new life, she gets word that Christopher has gone missing in a remote region in the rugged south of Greece; she reluctantly agrees to go and search for him, still keeping their split to herself. In her heart, she’s not even sure if she wants to find him. Adrift in the wild landscape, she traces the disintegration of their relationship, and discovers she understands less than she thought about the man she used to love.
A story of intimacy and infidelity, A Separation is about the gulf that divides us from the lives of others and the narratives we create for ourselves. As the narrator reflects upon her love for a man who may never have been what he appeared, Kitamura propels us into the experience of a woman on the brink of catastrophe. A Separation is a riveting stylistic masterpiece of absence and presence that will leave the reader astonished, and transfixed.” – Goodreads
I found this one through Goodreads’ New Release: Fiction section and was instantly drawn to its bright colors. Being that everyone judges books by their covers, even if they don’t mean to, this is definitely a book I would be tempted to buy in the store just because of how it looks
The Dogs I Have Kissed by Trista Mateer
“Known for her eponymous blog and her confessional style of writing, this is Trista Mateer’s second collection of poetry.” – Goodreads
I loved the color of this cover. I just had to click on it. Then when I looked closer the dogs drawn into the background, I loved. No matter how mean the dogs do look, I love any kind of dog so that really helped. I found this in the 2015 Goodreads Choice Awards.
A List of Cages by Robin Roe
“When Adam Blake lands the best elective ever in his senior year, serving as an aide to the school psychologist, he thinks he’s got it made. Sure, it means a lot of sitting around, which isn’t easy for a guy with ADHD, but he can’t complain, since he gets to spend the period texting all his friends. Then the doctor asks him to track down the troubled freshman who keeps dodging her, and Adam discovers that the boy is Julian—the foster brother he hasn’t seen in five years.
Adam is ecstatic to be reunited. At first, Julian seems like the boy he once knew. He’s still kindhearted. He still writes stories and loves picture books meant for little kids. But as they spend more time together, Adam realizes that Julian is keeping secrets, like where he hides during the middle of the day, and what’s really going on inside his house. Adam is determined to help him, but his involvement could cost both boys their lives…” – Goodreads
I found this in Goodread’s Contemporary section and again, I love colors and the yellow stars immediately caught my eye. Navy blue and yellow / gold work so well together and on the textured really light tan color is a-ma-zing.
That’s all I have for you today! Since I had slacked in my SS posts in the past few weeks, I decided to come back with a bang and do this meme correctly. I actually found all these titles and they are brand new to me. I am so pleased with what I found and love that because of the searching factor, this is much different from my Listify Tuesday post. Comment down below if you’ve heard of these books and if I should read them! – Kambria
