The Queen of Bloody Everything by Joanna Nadin

I'd only recently heard of Joanna Nadin's new novel, The Queen of Bloody Everything, when a copy showed up in mail - thank you, Pan Macmillan! I love the cover of this book and it was on my list to read and paint. This retro floral pattern perfectly suits the story, which starts in the 70s,and follows Dido and her mother Edie over the next few decades.

As the copy is an ARC, the cover designer isn't listed, but I assume it's care of the Pan Mac Art Department - I'll update this if I find out more details.

You can watch the video here or on my YouTube channel. Photos below and on Instagram.

The Seven Imperfect Rules of Elvira Carr by Frances Maynard

The cover of The Seven Rules of  Elvira Carr caught my eye immediately. I love the bold stripes, and the bright red guinea pigs.  The cover design is by Joanna Thomson of the PanMacmillan Art Department.

The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night by Jen Campbell

Hello and happy new year! I haven't blogged in a while, but I have some nail art to share today. In December last year I painted a bookish manicure to match the gorgeous cover of Jen Campbell's The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night. You can check out Jen's BookTube channel here.

The cover was illustrated by one of my faves, Aitch.
