Cover Crazy was created by The Bookworms. It's a great way to share a book cover that took your breath away!
To me, there is NOTHING better than a cover of a book. One of my favourite places, in the world, is a book store. I can walk around them for hours just looking at covers of books. I am well aware of the saying "You can't judge a book by it's cover", I just don't believe it!
When I find a book cover that I love, I will always read the back and then make my purchasing decision, but... WOW... there is just something amazing about a gorgeous cover! So, moving forward, I am going to share those covers that just made me want to escape and read a book instantly!
Here is my latest 'Cover Crazy' moment:
The Summer We Came to Life by Deborah Cloyed
What did this cover say to me?
Walking through Wal-Mart this weekend, I wasn't specifically looking for a book but my trip is never quite complete without at least peeking into the book section. Normally, I don't purchase, I just drool, I mean browse. However, once in a while, a book makes its way into the cart!!
The Summer We Came to Life looks like a perfect summer read. Jumping off the dock, fully clothed, brings back that feeling of being a care-free child. The colours are so appealing and calming; it was an immediate pick-up for me.
Another thing that always grabs my attention is the 'teaser' that is on the front of most books. That little saying that gives you just a small peek into what the book is about. This one said "Four friends. Two worlds. One second chance." Sigh... a must-read has been born and yet another purchase has been made!!
What cover has taken your breath away?
