Cover Lust!



I absolutely love cover art, I could look at it for hours! And since I love it I figured a few of you are likely to love it too. So, I’ve decided to make a weekly (Thursday) post called “Cover Lust” in which I will feature one spectacular cover I consider pretty much perfect. I encourage you to leave your thoughts below (because I’m crazy curious) and if you feel up to it… tell me the title of a book who’s cover YOU lust!

The very first thing that caught my eye about this cover is the color! Can you say wow!!! While color isn’t really a new thing for cover art, it’s usually a one color focus. NOT a rainbow wonderland like this one. Add to that the spectacular detail in the trees, or the birds escaping in the background and you have yourself one whopping winner. Did, I mention how awesome it is that the clouds reflect off the glass they are on as well? No? Well…glad I could point that out for you. There is just so much to look at AND more importantly…it poses a TON of questions! I think THIS is the perfect cover!

What do YOU think? 

About Misty

Your friendly neighborhood narcissist. I'm sarcastic, cynical and a bit cranky. I own a soap box so big that sometimes I have difficulty stepping down off of it, and I'm about 94% certain I have multiple personalities. I don't sleep enough, and I read more than any person should ever consider normal. I have anger management issues, especially when I'm stuck in traffic and I have an unhealthy obsession with my Kindle. I am a vampire lovin', zombie obsessed, book-in-hand, iPod freak. You either love me or hate me. You be the judge.

  1. One is not supposed to judge a book by its cover…well, in this one, I just had to go to Amazon and check it out. By the way, the description of the book follows:

    There are no men in Claysoot.

    There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends . . . and he’s gone.

    They call it the Heist.

    Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate—until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets, the Heist itself, and what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot—a structure that no one can cross and survive.

    Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken—or risk everything on the hope of the other side?

  2. I love the cover. It’s amazing! It made me go to Amazon and check out what the book was about!
