Cover Love (2): Amelia Anne is Dead & Gone

I'm so glad you guys liked the idea for this new design-lovin' series here on TBR! I'm excited to make it a regular feature!
If you missed my inarticulate swooning and arm-flailing over the gorgeous design for Children of Blood and Bone, you can find that here.

Today, I'm taking a look at a more understated book cover that features a lot of what I love about design:

I talked about this one a bit during the 28 Days of Book Love, because it hits a lot of the right notes for me: simple design, muted colors, a focal image that pops, and an excellent title highlighted by a strong font choice.
*heart eyes emojis* all around.

Anyone know the designer/artist on this one? I don't have my copy to hand, and Google has failed me! But hopefully it's listed in the book, and I'll be able to update it here, soon!

about the book:
An arresting un-coming-of-age story, from a breathtaking talent

Becca has always longed to break free from her small, backwater hometown. But the discovery of an unidentified dead girl on the side of a dirt road sends the town--and Becca--into a tailspin. Unable to make sense of the violence of the outside world creeping into her backyard, Becca finds herself retreating inward, paralyzed from moving forward for the first time in her life.

Short chapters detailing the last days of Amelia Anne Richardson's life are intercut with Becca's own summer as the parallel stories of two young women struggling with self-identity and relationships on the edge twist the reader closer and closer to the truth about Amelia's death.


  1. I'm not exactly sure if I like it, but it sure does look creepy.

  2. I like when a cover changes the visual perspective like we're looking down the body in this one. The shady colors with the pop of just the rose is neat, too. Yep, I'd heart this one, too. :)

  3. I am in love with that font! And it certainly is an arresting image. There's something sensual and intimate about it (maybe even sexual?), and the color choices and focal point support that 'faded' feel without it being a 'dead' feel. Pretty much exactly captures the mood I'd expect of the book, from the blurb.

  4. This book gives a lot of insight into our choices and their repercussions. A person should own their choices and decisions, and deal with the repercussions, not mire themself in self-pity and blame others.

  5. Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone is a remarkably powerful novel filled with gorgeous writing, perfectly flawed characters, and a painfully real setting. Kat Rosenfield has blown me away with her debut novel. I can guarantee I'll be anxiously awaiting for her next offering.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
