A Black, Halloween-y Cover
Because we’re dark and spooky this month, so let’s show off our black covers to celebrate. I have a handily colour-coded bookshelf, that you can see in my photos above, so it isn’t hard to find my black covers. However, I want to ignore the atrocity that is the Twilight series, and celebrate one of my all time favourite books.
Gone Girl, of course! I’m obsessed with this book, I still feel shocked by that ending every time I think about it. Sure, the photo is terrible with that lighting, but I was a new book photographer, okay?
What’s Gone Girl about?
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?
