Obsessed With Covers #21: Sweet & Until We Meet Again

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


So, here are the prettiest covers I've seen this week - the seaside edition.
 It appears I have a thing for photographs in which the perspective is off. Which is why I love this cover. It's simple. And sweet (HA! See what I did there?) However, simple doesn't mean without a certain something. The water is calm, that's true. And the sky is clear, with only white, fluffy clouds. However that quote at the beginning of the cover is chillingly scary! So maybe not so sweet, huh? And is that blood on top of the "T"? Or a ribbon? The lover of all things scary in me wants to think it's blood.

The colors are gorgeous and they make me miss the sea. I also want to know more about this cruise...

I love this cover so much. The swirly design before and after the title are great and the font used for the title is pretty as well. However the sea at night is just....dreamy! I love the sea and she (I always thing the sea is a she) has a deceiving calmness at night or right at sunset. I love that the sky colors are somewhat reflected in the water. And I love the rays of light on top of the landscape. It makes me wonder if the image is taken from behind a screen or maybe it's a magical, unseen screen? And the perspective is just awesome. I am hoping that the picture is continued on the spine and on the back of the cover, and maybe hint at the person who's looking at the girl. That would be awesome! Based on this cover, I'm adding this book on my TBR, because I need such gorgeousness on my shelves.
