Book Cover Throwback: The Giver

This week’s Book Cover Throwback: The Giver by Lois Lowry.

The Giver by Lois LowryWhat I Love about This Cover:  The transition from black & white to color in the bottom left-hand corner. Simple and yet eye-catching.

What I Don’t Love about This Cover:  I know this book is award-winning, a fact that they love to advertise with their golden seal, but the seal is in the way. It makes my eyes unsure of the focus.

About the author

Raven Oak

Bestselling science fiction & fantasy author Raven Oak is best known for Amaskan’s Blood, Class-M Exile, and the collection Joy to the Worlds: Mysterious Speculative Fiction for the Holidays.

She spent most of her K-12 education doodling stories and 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet. When she's not writing, she's getting her game on, enjoying cartography, or staring at the ocean.

She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband, and their three kitties who enjoy lounging across the keyboard when writing deadlines approach.
