Obsessed With Covers #31: Collide, Once Upon A Dream

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.

Little known fact about me: I love guitars. Probably more than I love coffee and chocolate combined. I know, it sounds impossible to love something more than those two things, but it's true. Which is exactly why this cover caught my eye. The second thing that made me love this cover is the use of water and fire. I love that at the center is a guitar, making it clear that the instrument plays a very significant role in this battle, whatever that is.

I absolutely love this cover! Growing up, one of my favorite Disney movies was Sleeping Beauty. Besides the fact that Aurora had three fairy godmothers, Maleficent had a pet raven. A RAVEN! Which is 80% the reason why I love this cover so much. I also like the colors used on this cover. I'm curious about this book too, because I wonder how exactly the story will change and how not waking Aurora up will affect the story. The thing is, I love how the green smoke is concentrated around her head area, which is really interesting. And her eyes are open, but I have a feeling that she's not able to see anything, really. So I am definitely curious about this book
