A Cup of Friendship (ReCOVERy Friday)


Welcome back to another ReCOVERy Friday - a meme hosted by Miss Page-Turner's City of Books.  Obviously I've had a busy week working my way towards the halfway point of NaNoWriMo (more on that this weekend) but I wanted to jump in again with this fun artwork based meme.

This is how it works:

  1. Think of a book cover you like (e.g. because of its cover art, model, author, title etc.) Doesn’t matter if it’s an old or new one, you just have to enjoy it!
  2. Create a ReCOVERy Friday post for your blog and post it with the whole wonderful weekend ahead
  3. Maybe add some sentences and explain why you like the cover…
  4. Then add your ReCOVERy Friday post to the link list on Miss Page Turner's site so everyone can enjoy it
  5. Check out other ReCOVERy Friday posts if you like to compare them, chat about them, get inspiration and just have fun! 

The book I want to spotlight this week is one that I'm really excited to read, although it won't be released until January of 2011.  Check out this cover for Deborah Rodriguez's A Cup of Friendship

For the artwork alone, I like the centered title and the symmetry of the open windows and the chairs.  The tea setting on the table with the chairs turned toward it, looks comforting and inviting and adds to the warmth of the word "friendship" in the title.  I also like the color scheme with the bright paint on the window designs and the contrast against the mustard colored walls. 

Like Deborah Rodriquez's first book, Kabul Beauty School, this one takes place in Afghanistan an I think the cover does a nice job of conveying that.  What has me even more intrigued by this book though, is the very small subtitle - "A Novel".  Kabul Beauty School was a nonfiction memoir of Rodriguez's life as an American hairdresser living in the Afghanistan but in her newest book she tackles a fiction story.  I'm really intrigued to read this one as I felt that Rodriquez had a great voice in relating the life stories of her friends in Kabul and I'm curious to check out an entire book in her narrative style. 

Do you have a favorite cover of the week?  What do you think about A Cup of Friendship based on cover alone?

      Huh, the cover kind of makes me think it'd be a cozy mystery of some sort. On the other hand, when I read the title I immediately thought of Three Cups of Tea (the other book). I couldn't help it.

      I've been wanting to read this one too. I think, in part, because of the cover!
