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 established 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!



Tides by Betsy Cornwell





This cover is absolutely breathtaking to me. Why? Because it looks like a painting. I don’t know about any of you, but I can spend HOURS in a museum. Hell, I spent 4 hours in The Met the last time I was in NYC and only made it through a 1/4 of the exhibits  Anyways…this cover is the type of art that grabs me and doesn’t let go. First of all, the colors are muted to look soft and inviting (like brushstrokes) Second, the fluidity of the female, the way she arches her back and thrusts her chin forward makes me long to reach out and touch her. (Wow, that sounds a little stalker-ish) I would totally hang this on my wall. I’m in lust with this cover. How about you?

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.
