Front and Center by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
Bright grass, open sky, a pretty but not over-the-top pretty girl--what more do you want for this absolutely FANTABULOUS third book about D.J. Schwenk. Seriously. Kristin Cashore's blurb on the cover doesn't even cover the half of it (though she's absolutely right). I'm hoping to get my review of this book written over the weekend so I can further share with you how much I love this series by Catherine Gilbert Murdock.
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
It hasn't been published in the U.S. yet, but how wonderful is that cover? I love the flower designs juxtaposed over the actual tree photograph in the background, and the boy's face subtly peeking through translucently. You know that I didn't even realize there was a guy's face there the first several times I looked at this cover? I just thought it was a cool picture of, like, a mountain. Or a rock. Or something.
Oblivion Road by Alex McAulay
This one's color is similar to Finnikin of the Rock. Maybe today's theme is "climate", as these last two certainly have a wintry feel to them (and perhaps that's because it's SNOWING outside?? In October! Ridiculous). I love the sharpness of the details--everything is focused--contrasted with the sans-serif font. That jacket's not all that appealing to me, but this is still a very attractive cover.
So what do you think about these three?!
