Obsessed With Covers #37: Starfall, Spindle Fire

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.

This cover reminds me of the very, very old Windows 98-ish screensaver, with the stars that kept moving, making it seem you were travelling through space (yeah, I'm THAT old, that I remember using that Windows!). But I love that. It makes the "falling" that the title speaks of seem more imminent, more real. I love the glow of the planet. The entire cover seems to actually concentrate around the planet. It makes me wonder if the planet somehow makes everything close to it crash on its surface. Even the title seems to resemble one of Saturn's rings. If the cover for the first book in the series is pretty, this one is gorgeous and I definitely want to get my hands on both of them soon.

I already admitted to this in a previous post, but I have a soft spot for Maleficent's raven. So that was the first thing I noticed. And then I noticed some other details as well, that made me very curious. The cover makes me believe there are two equally important stories that the reader should focus on. It also makes me think that if one story ends in tragedy, the other one will as well. I read the blurb and I'm curious about the idea of two princesses. I am so curious to see how their story ends, but I do believe there's a lot of heartbreak along the way. I also love the tagline. It's brilliant and I can't wait to get my hands on this book.
