About Us

Hosts Jenn and Mary adventure through weird cover art, absurd titles, and the downright confounding choices publishers make to sell books to try to determine what actually happens when you judge a book by it’s cover.

The Case of All the Things We Do In The Dark

EThis month Mary and Jenn discuss LGBT representation in fiction, starting with All the Things We Do In The Dark by Saundra Mitchell. Despite its mediocre cover, and its impossible to remember title, All The Things We Do In The Dark has a lot to offer: a relatable protagonist dealing with traumatic past, a sweet same-sex romance, and a horrific murder mystery. Do all of these elements fuse together to create the perfect YA drama, or do these elements, like the vague cover and title, confuse the narrative and frustrate the reader? Tune into this week's episode of Casing The Cover for our review of All The Things We Do In The Dark. Trigger Warning: All The Things We Do In The Dark discusses dark and traumatic themes including sexual assault and murder and we do discuss those elements in our book review. If these topics may cause distress please consider that before listening to the episode. For more information on Saundra Michell and her work visit http://saundramitchell.com/.

The Case of Romanov

This month on Casing the Cover, current affairs are too much for us so we're taking a trip to the past. First Mary delves into Nadine Brandes' Romanov, a fantasy young adult novel about the tragedy of the Russian Royal Family. With one of the most beautiful covers we have encountered in our investigations, does Romanov have a story compelling enough to match, and how well does it blend historical and magical elements? Join us for this week's episode as we take a trip back in time with Romanov.
