Love Pains by KL Handy

What's the genre? What is it you like or don't like about this cover? Does it make you want to know more about the book? Does it make you want to BUY the book? Discuss.


  1. Genre, I'd say romantic - although that's more to do with the title than the cover. The cover itself says non-fiction to me, and to be honest I don't like it much. There's too much of an attempt at comic symbolism - although if this is representative of the style and tone of the stories then the author may be pleased with the result. On a positive note, I like the title fond, and the plain white background with a slight shadow is quite effective. I wouldn't pick it up in a book shop, but that's just my taste.

  2. I would say this looks like a romantic comedy's.

    I like that the cover is simple and to the point. ;-)

    My only suggestion would be to make the subtitle (3 short stories) darker. It kind of get's lost in the background.

  3. I agree with what has already been mentioned. I immediately considered it in the romance genre. Also, making the "three short stories" a bit more prominent would really be a good thing. I like the simplicity of the cover.

  4. This screams "trivial" or chiclit at me.
