romance covers i have loved


A Little Secret Between FriendsA Little Secret Between Friends by C.J. Carmichael

this one makes the all-time list. a truly stunning visual narrative – i only wish the picture on here were bigger so everyone could enjoy it. is this better??

i bought several copies of this book to cover-frame as gifts, but i feel like i can never have enough copies, nor spend enough time trying to figure out what it all meeeeeans.

so, the title is what it is and then the bottom-half of the cover (which we assume is in the past cuz it’s a little fuzzy) shows these two young girls pointing at a dog in a crouch-y position that raises its hindquarters (suggestively?? playfully?? it depends on your view – i would have said innocently, but there’s something creepier at work here), and they are pointing at its backside and laughing and one of them has like a stick or something. WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO TO/WITH THAT DOG?? because then in the upper panel, the older of the two is with a man and her face looks…alarmed. as though she is thinking back to this incident with the dog. will he be able to satisfy her like that dog did? is she a dog rapist?? did she love that dog?? what is the little secret between friends?? what happened to that other girl? it is so inscrutable!!

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
