Hello my lovelies & welcome to another Captivating Covers!! A good amount of time has passed since I’ve posted this meme, so here it is today! This week’s cover of choice is quite unique & different, so let’s take a look…
Title: A Girl on the Shore
Author: Inio Asano
Genre: Manga, Comic, Romance
To Be Published: January 19th, 2016
Okay, well, as you can see this novel has not been published yet! But the cover is gorgeous to me because of the contrast between the black and white and the blues and reds. The font could be better in my opinion, but the overall cover is very nice. I also like the female figure on the cover — she looks sort of mysterious.
I was looking at the reviews on Goodreads and most are positive. Supposedly the novel is very sexual, which I wasn’t expecting, lol. Oh, and I also wasn’t expecting the novel to be 408 pages!! That is a loooong Manga!
Speaking of Mangas, I
typically don’t never read them, but I did add it to my ‘Want to Read’ list on Goodreads because of the reviews & synopsis. I am not sure if this Manga is in black and white or color, but here is a sample of what I found:
You can read the synopsis and find the link to the novel down below if you are interested! 🙂
Synopsis from Goodreads:
A Girl on the Shore by Inio Asano
“Longing for Something Bigger
From the Eisner Award-nominated Inio Asano, creator of Solanin and Nijigahara Holograph, comes one of his most challenging works yet; an intense teen romance set in what may at first glance be one of the sleepiest places in Japan.
When Koume and Keisuke＊s relationship begins to take shape, it is apparent that they are both searching for something. Maybe Keisuke wants something more than a kiss from the fair Koume. Maybe Koume is looking for someone better than Misaki, the local playboy. But what they find in each other over the course of a summer might be far greater than anything they were expecting.
Their lives are going to change. And this will all transpire before high school exams!”

Thanks for reading & I’ll see you next time…
