Friday Feature: Cover Art

img_1837

What’s the old adage, “don’t judge a book by its cover”, right?

Well, as wise as that phrase may be, sometimes I DO judge a book by it’s cover.  #IdowhatIwant Sometimes selecting a book is a choice that comes down to aesthetics for me. Can you blame me though?…I am, after all, a photographer. My brain’s pleasure receptors light up like a bonfire when my eyes fall upon beautiful imagery. Fact.

So I’m going to indulge that part of me with a simple post about book cover judgment. DISCLAIMER! Featuring a cover in this post, does not mean anything other than I love the cover! It does not mean I was asked to feature it or that it is now on my TBR – it might not be. This is just about covers, folks. But, I’ll let you know if it is on my list or if I’ve already read it.


For this Friday’s Featured Cover:

Stone Girl by Eleni Hale

Ummm so yeah, I am looooving this cover. I think it’s the look in the girl’s eye….there’s just something about it that draws me in and makes me want to know how that haunting look came to find a home in her eyes. I also love the nose ring for some reason. I cannot explain why, I just like it as part of the geography of this girl’s face. The synopsis sounds reasonably good…I’ve added it for now, but it could easily get culled later if I don’t get around to reading it soon. Has anyone else read it yet? Good? Meh? Lets talk!


 

I’d love to see what covers you guys like! Post one in the comments or to your own blog. Let me know if you’ve read it or not, and if that cover judgment proved to be a bad choice.

  1. The cover is pretty cool, but I don’t think I’ll be adding it to my to read list. The synopsis didn’t really grab me. If you end up reading it and liking it, I might reconsider.

    I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned the cover of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn on one of your cover art posts, but I love the paperback cover. It has earthy tones and it almost looks like an impressionist painting. I picked it up in the super buy section at HPB partly because of the cover. It’s title also drew my attention (and let’s be honest, titles are super duper important as well), and it of course didn’t hurt that you had it on your TBR list. It is now my favorite book, so definitely a win for everyone. You need to read it so we can talk about it. I’m hoping to read it again soon.
