Cover Lust (26)

When one has a thesis due at the end of the month... obviously procrastinate by finding pretty covers.

Illuminated by Erica Orloff
(Speak / Dec. 8, 2011)

It's a little too goldenly cliched for me to like for a very long time... but I dunno, it mesmerizes me right now. It's just bright and shiny and whatnot.

The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
(Razorbill / Nov. 15, 2011)

Talk about a cover of creepy AWESOME. I like how the red skies hint at the main character Daphne's demonic background, and the way the model lies across all that steel, another characteristic of the world Daphne lives in. Wowza.

Juliet, Immortal by Stacey Jay
(Delacorte / Sept. 13, 2011)

I debated for the longest time whether or not I liked this cover. I think the verdict is I do. The muted colors add a solemn weight to the cover--even as she's sitting at the edge of the sea in a pretty dress.

Legacy by Cara Kluver
(HarlequinTeen / June 21, 2011)

I like this mostly for the font and curlicues, lol, and the sharpness of the details of the model's outfit. This will definitely appeal to the YA-reading crowd.

Fury by Elizabeth Miles
(Simon Pulse / Sept. 6, 2011)

Again: font, curlicues. The model's dress and (attempt at an) unnerving stare. The fiery red hair that trails off into wisps of smoke... or at least that's how it looks to me. Very fierce.


So, how do you feel about these covers? Got any you've seen lately that has gotten you lusting over it?


  1. Fury is my favourite out all of these I love the colour of her hair again the black background and white of her dress. I've been trying in vain to find out the photographer of the cover to see if this was once part of a shoot or something but I can't find anything.

  2. Love all of them except Legacy, it's just kind of meh for me.

  3. YES! The cover for illuminated is the most beautiful cover I have ever seen, probably because the guy kind of reminds me of RPatts. LOL

  4. I love the cover for Juliet Immortal, but the one for Legacy reminds me of the ones of the Bright Young Things books.

  5. The Illuminated cover definitely makes me want to pick up that book! Gorgeous.

  6. They're all so beautiful! I'm such a sucker for good covers. Sigh.

  7. Legacy reminds me of Young Bright Things + Abandon. Fury reminds me of Firelight. Love both the covers of the new books.

  8. What I really noticed on these covers was the font. I usually pay so much attention to the image that I miss the work the font does, particulary on Juliet Immortal!

  9. I'm not a person who purchases a book because of a beautiful cover, but admit if it doesn't appeal it's likely to pus me away. Most of these are really appealing, Fury in particular is quite jarring.
