Cover Crush

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. 


  1. Wow, that is a stunning and different cover. I think we need more covers that don't feature girls in pretty dresses (even though I swoon for them every time :)
