Cover Reveal: Iris After the Incident by Mina V. Esguerra

4 Comments

Iris After the Incident is the latest book in Mina V. Esguerra’s Chic Manila series, and will be released on August 5. These are books set in the Philippines that have some overlaps (e.g. cameos of characters) but each can be read on its own. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know that I’m a strong supporter of Mina’s books. My reviews of her Chic Manila books can be found here, and all my other posts about her books can be found here. The cover for Iris After the Incident was just released today! Cover design by Tania Arpa, photography by Pach R. Urrea and features one of the shots from #romanceclasscovers. I think it’s awesome how Mina keeps trying to properly represent her characters through her book covers. She has partnered with Filipino fashion bloggers for some of her other covers, and the photo for Iris After the Incident was from a shoot specifically intended for Asian/Filipino book covers. How cool is that? I really like the simple and clean design of this cover, and it seems like the photo matches the book description well. The cover makes Iris look like she’s at a turning point in her life. I still need to read the book to find out if the cover is a good fit for the story… looking forward to it!

Iris After the Incident

Which moment has defined your life so far?

Whether she likes it or not, Iris’s life has been divided into two: Before the Incident, and After the Incident. Something very private was made very public, and since then life has been about recovering from being shamed, discovering her true friends, and struggling to find a new normal.

Two years into this new life and she finally connects with a guy again. He lives in the apartment down the hall, he’s hot, and he doesn’t look at her that way. He doesn’t know what happened. But he also won’t give her his name, not right away—which has to mean he’s got something to hide too.

Iris wants to start over. Should she do that with the only person who will understand, or is this the same idiotic decision that got her in trouble in the first place?

  1. Hmmmm…..this would not be my type of covers to be honest. I’m not a fan of the gradient bg, the typography or the font color. It could have been better. But I do like the effort of them properly representing the characters culture on the cover👍

    • I’m not really particular about background color or typhography, I just like how it looks nice and simple. There isn’t too much going on and the photo and text are balanced well.

  2. I like the sound of this story! It seems like a potentially VERY cute romance, and I’m all about those 😉

    • It does sound like it will be a cute romance! I haven’t read it yet, but will keep you posted. 🙂 hope you get to read one of Mina’s Chic Manila books soon.

Comments are like chocolate. :) Maraming salamat / thank you! I try my best to reply to all the comments on my blog.
