Current Read #12

This week, none of the books I'm reading have more than one edition to compare since they are all recent or not-yet-released books. However, I did notice that all of the books I'm reading have a bit of a red theme going on, so I figured why not just compare all of those and have a bit of 'battle of the red book covers'? Let's take a look at them!

2023 US Hardcover | 2023 US Paperback

2023 US Paperback | 2023 US Hardcover

My choice(s):
If we're judging based on redness, then Silver Nitrate has to take the win this week. But as far as which cover I like the most, I have to say that I'm partial to the cover for Red Rabbit, which feels rather unique and just really grabs me. I also really like that cover for The Handyman Method as well. Which cover(s) do you like best?


  1. I agree, Silver Nitrate has the best red theme, but Last Night at the Hollywood Canteen is really catching my eye!

    1. It's so striking–I love the cityscape reflected in her sunglasses!

  2. I love the Silver Nitrate cover, it fits the story perfectly!
