I love book covers. Love, love, LOVE them. I've been known to drag my sister across Barnes and Noble just to show her a book cover. Or to find students before school starts just to do the same. You could say that yes, I develop a cover crush!
Today I'm Crushing On:

Why I'm Crushing
The second saw this one I was completely drawn to it. How could you not be? Maybe it's because it's not like everything else out there - a girl in a big pretty dress -that draws me to it. Not that I don't like those covers. I do. But this is so completely different.
Her eye just captures me, and I get stuck on it. And do you see how the sliver of her face is in the shape of a knife? Why? Is that intentional?
And the stars in her eyes? What do they have to do with the story? I love it all.
Oh and I also like that the title is vertical instead of horizontal. It's just all so different and memorizing.
