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 its 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!
Without further adieu, here is the cover I am crazy about this week:
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
What does this cover say to me?
I am instantly drawn into the colours on this book... I love that it is mostly black and white but then has red thrown in as an accent colour and it just makes the whole thing pop.
It wasn't until I was actually holding a copy of the book that I realized just how much I loved it. The hand holding a bunch of abstract shapes that when put together form a clown. The face of the clown being a clock and, the feel of the book, so 3-dimensional.
If I were to judge this book by it's cover, I would assume a book about mystery and magic... the slight of hand (the clown) and the clock indicating that there is a time-limit.
Being a fan of circus stories since reading Water For Elephants, I am so excited to read this book!
