Cover Reveal: The Blackout Book Club by Amy Lynn Green

Last year, I ordered a couple of books by Amy Lynn Green that I had been eyeing for a while. I’d seen the cover for Things We Didn’t Say floating around on Goodreads for quite some time, and I’d noticed that the first couple of sentences of the blurb for The Lines Between Us sounded like that story would be right up my alley. Due to a busy schedule with two jobs and the complex and numerous post-WuVi symptoms I’ve been dealing with for just about a year now, I have not yet read these two books.

I’m trying!

Since I’m still excited about these books and can hardly wait to get to them this spring, I could not resist an opportunity that passed through my inbox: to help reveal the cover of Amy Lynn Green’s newest book’s cover.

Before we get to the pretty cover that should be splashing its way across the far reaches of the Internet today, let’s look at a couple of different things that caught my attention about this one.

The Title

When I first heard the title of The Blackout Book Club, my jaw dropped and I whispered, “No way… Cool!” Y’all, this title is totally my cup of tea! It sounds just like a club I would happily join myself, and I love that there is a hint of the WWII setting right there in the word “blackout.” Books that feature books—whether that is via a book club, a library, or classic books sprinkled throughout the story—are always neat to me. I grew up visiting the library every week or so, and there is just something so vintage and reminiscent to me about books that I can’t seem to get over it.

The Blurb

Next up, we have the blurb. Now, I will fully admit I have not even read the entire blurb. I detest spoilers of any kind, and so many blurbs these days reveal more details than I would like. That being said, I did read the first couple of sentences when Amy Lynn Green sent me the packet for the cover reveal. Those sentences intrigued me even more than the title originally had! If you’re like me and don’t read book blurbs in case they contain spoilers, feel free to scroll right past the “plot summary” pictures, but I do want to share them for anyone who wants to learn more about this book.

What do you think? Does it sound like a book you’d be interested in reading?

Now to get to what we’ve all been waiting {hopefully} patiently for…

The Cover

When I first saw this cover, I was delighted to see WWII-esque attire, hairstyle, and planes. Of course there were going to be books involved, and they look pretty great on the simple bookcase. That low window seat looks like a place I’d be likely to take a throw blanket and a cup of hot tea for some afternoons of reading.

But I want to hear from you: What do you think about this book cover? Which aspect of it is your favorite?

This WWII novel releases in November 2022, but it’s already up on at least a couple of sites for pre-order. For those who like to shop early, Baker Book House appears to have the best pre-order price right now ($10.79 + tax, as of when I wrote this article on Sunday afternoon). If you do your shopping on Amazon, I’ve got the link here for you as well. Hopefully the book will also be available at other online retailers very soon.

If you’re on Goodreads, here’s the link to the book’s page so that you can add it to your to-be-read list on that site. Feel free to also vote for it on appropriate Goodreads Listopia lists such as Most Anticipated Christian Fiction 2022.

While I’m sharing fun links, I might as well send you over to meet Amy Lynn Green herself. Here’s her website, where you may learn more about the author, her books, and fact-versus-fiction history behind her stories. Note: There may be spoilers on the “history” page of her website for those who, like me, have not yet read her novels. I’m planning on checking out that page of her site after I read her books this spring and/or summer.

Which WWII books have you read and enjoyed in the past?

Are there any particular WWII novels you’re looking forward to getting your hands on this year?

Have you read either of Amy Lynn Green’s other WWII books? What did you think of them?
