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:
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
What I love about this cover:
For starters, it totally matched the new blog... and that had to be a seller, no?!!?
Seriously though, this is one of the prettiest covers I have seen in a while. I love the use of stars and how they seem to be all over - in front, behind - the girl. It makes the book have a mysterious, yet romantic, feel to it.
The colours are dark and yet the pinkish gold hue of the title and the bright burst in the centre don't make the cover appear too subdued. If anything, it adds to the mystery.
I will definitely be adding this book to my bookshelf based solely on the look of it!! :) ~ Not that I have ever done that before... ;)
