Obsessed With Covers #3

Y'all know how much I love a pretty cover. I think about...40% of the books that end up on my shelves (be they physical or digital) do so because of the covers. Call me shallow but you have to admit that a pretty, shiny cover will catch your eye faster than a dull, boring one. Two, simple rules that I'll follow:

  • 1, 2 or 3 (no more than 3, though) covers per week;
  • books should be new-ish; no more than 2 years old.
Oh, before I share the covers that made me drool or want to stare at them for hours and hours, I have to say something. This is a semi-original idea. Why semi? Because almost every book blogger has something similar. The only thing I came up with was the title. If by any chance there's another blogger with a similar feature with the same title, I assure you I'm not stealing your idea. I'm just THAT bad with titles. Believe me, I'd love to be smarter and have a witty name for this feature, but I don't. So, no copyright infringement/theft/steal or anything of the sort was desired. All I can say is sorry :P

*all links and covers go to the Goodreads page of each book.


So, here are the prettiest covers I've seen this week.

I can't tell you how much I adore this cover. It's just gorgeous! Her hair is amazing and the way her dress blends with the background is beautiful and, at the same time, a little creepy, because it makes you think she only has a head, with no body. It's just amazing.

The Fairest of Them All - Carolyn Turgeon

I loved the previous cover, I love this one too. Yes, it's for the pretty dress. The thing I like though is that it's a simple dress. Oh sure, it's puffy or whatever, but the colors are tame, or so I see them. I'm used to pretty dresses in flashy colors on the covers and these are really, really tame.

A Darkness Strange and Lovely - Susan Dennard

This is a very, very creepy cover. The colors are amazing, but scary. The clouds make me think not only of an impending storm, but of something dangerous and mysterious going on.  And the girl (with no hands, or I don't see them) dressed in leaves that are blown away by the wind...that is the most amazing thing on this cover. And it also sort of contradicts the title, because the cover doesn't make me think of something quiet. Not even a little bit.
