Happy Cover Snark Monday!
Amanda: Sir that is going to be a melty mess in under an hour.
Elyse: Imagine you’re already lost in the desert, thirsty as fuck, and some dude comes up to you with a chocolate sampler platter.
Carrie: I mean… not even an iced mocha? I didn’t know you could go wrong with chocolate but here we are.
Tara: I’d tuck a couple of brownies in my bag for later and keep walking.
Sarah: I have some suspicions about what kind of brownies those are and in case my suspicions are correct I’ll take 6.
Amanda: Not necessarily a snark because the cover makes me want to know more, but the title made me laugh.
Sarah: I love how HAPPY the ghost on the left is.
Amanda: I wonder if it’s a series, where this guy keeps getting reincarnated into professions he hates.
From PamG: So I saw this and thought for a moment that it was kind of aesthetically pleasing. Color scheme, pretty guy, no egregious cover fails. . . . I mean, who says decapitation ain’t sexy, amirite?
Sarah: I think that’s a penalty, either high sticking or hooking or attempted murder.
Susan: With the world’s tiniest hockey stick as well!
Amanda: What is this? Hockey for ants?!
From PamG: I’m backkkk. Again, this didn’t seem bad at first glance. A little squirrelly, but. . . you get the picture. When I blew it up for details, though, so many little things were just full of nope. From his very creepy eyes coupled with the aw shucks pose, to the fire puking squirrel who appears to have set their own tail on fire. Also, is it just me, or is the musculature just a tad off? Worst of all, is something “weeping” below the belt–er, title.
Sarah: I remain curious about the lack of childcare in these worlds. I would have thought that supportive services and networks would have been a foundational element to shifter and/or alien societies.
Fire breathing squirrels, though. That’s new.
Lara: Maybe I’ve listened to too many true crime podcasts but the proximity of smouldering man to children’s toys gives me the ick. But then it’s the day care for the squirrel? Like that woman on TikTok who has a daycare for raccoons?
Susan: …Okay, that squirrel IS breathing fire.
I was genuinely worried I was making that up.
Sneezy: Did it light their own tail on fire too?
Susan: There’s probably a joke to be made about how this isn’t why squirrels are red, but I’m just not getting there.
