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!

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?
