I'm happy to finally bring you the first edition of my new cover feature, DisCover! Every Monday I'll be highlighting 3-4 books covers where you can ooh and aah as much as you like in the comments box!
You all know how much I DEVOUR pretty book covers, and I thought, Waiting on Wednesday just isn't going to cut it, so I should introduce a feature where I smother you with covers ;)
I held a quick contest for the name last week, and Cat suggested DisCover a Cover, which I LOVED. But it was a bit of a mouthful having to say cover twice (sorry!), so I shortened it to DisCover..like it? Bonus pints to Cat for being the first comentee as well ;)
This is just wow. I'd actually just buy this without looking at the synopsis. Hell, I'd buy it for the cover alone and frame it on my bedroom wall!!! It's so..peaceful, yet it holds so much tension. I did some digging around and I found the artist's website and the original photograph! Birthday present?
I'm a big fan-girl of Alyxandra Harvey's Drake Chronicles and I'm so excited she's writing another book ABOUT GHOSTS! There's something really eerie about this cover, I think the expression on the cover model's face is perfect. The purpley-bluey colour is lovely, and okay, I admit it, I have a thing for WATER on covers. o.O
There's definitely a theme here. Have you spotted it yet? That shade of blue is stunning! And it looks gorgeous on top of that picture. I love how the bottom half is weaved in with the water (at least I think it's water).
What do you think?
