Chick Lit I assume. Since that is a genre I don't like and never read the fact that this cover totally puts me off may well be a good thing.
I'm getting an Eat. Pray. Love vibe from this book so I'm going with chick lit, possibly a strong romance angle.As for the cover, it looks nice. Great mix of font styles as well.
I can't tell what genre this is either. It might be romance, but I'm not getting that strong of a feeling from it.I also don't have a strong feeling towards the colors of the title oval and letters. They are a little to pastel together. Either the letters or the oval needs to be stronger.
I can't tell the genre. I like her face, but I don't like the shawl and her arms folded; in thumbnail it's kind of difficult to see what's going on there, and it looks like she has ginormous low-hanging boobs.I really do not care for the oval, the color, or the typefaces on the title. The oval looks like a thought bubble and the pink is just too pink (and very flat, compared to the nuanced detail of the photo). The typefaces looks very carefree, yet she looks worried. It just doesn't mesh.
Thanks for the comments, folks (and thanks to Jude for posting this).It's more of a thriller than a chick-lit and while I like the cover, I can see how it's impossible to tell the thriller nature from it. But your feedback is very much appreciated.I'm of the mindset that a cover should grab the (potential) reader's eye, enticing them to read the blurb (back cover). And if the blurb does it's job it's off to the check out line.
I would never have gotten thriller from that cover I'm afraid.
The text bubble says chick lit, the photo doesn't. I"m not seeing thriller in any part of this. Fish out of water, maybe, but that's the title.
I assumed this was a romcom with an Australian female protag. I agree with most of the above re the oval, the pink etc. The girl looks like she's just got out of bed and doesn't have anything to worry about.
