Cover Crazy was created by The Bookworms but is now hosted here at Turning the Pages. 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:
What I love about this cover:
Anyone who knows me knows that I have an intense fear of the wind... like crazy fear! So even though I believe that the funnel like image on the cover is smoke, it looks like a tornado and it sort of freaks me out!
What I also love about this cover are the dark and mysterious colours, the greys, the blues and the blacks. It makes the ominious nature of the story so clear just by the cover.
One thing that I do not like about this particular image of the cover is the title and the colour of the authors name. Sure, it should never be so big and loud that it overshadows the image but I do think you should be able to read it! Nevertheless, I desperately want to read it!!
What cover took your breath away this week?
