Because no matter the book's summary blurb, author, or marketing, there's no doubt that many of us are drawn in by a pretty cover. And the great ones are hard not to notice. I'm admittedly not immune to wonderfully crafted book covers and have fallen prey to them time and time again.
Cover Crush is a feature originally thought up by Erin at Flashlight Commentary. Every Thursday, she publishes a post featuring a book jacket/book cover that she really likes with a short commentary about it. I discovered this weekly feature via It's a Mad Mad World here at Booklikes and decided to join in the fun!
The official cover reveal for Nevernight happened a while back sometime in January, and while I was going through my book cover jpegs, I realized I'd never saved the official Nevernight book cover to my files. I DID remember that I was all "Ooh" and "Ahh" about it when I saw it for the first time.
It's sleek, it's eerie, and it's kind of cool. And I just love the title's font and typeface! And according to the link I've included above, the typography was done by one of the bloggers over at Cuddlebuggery, Meg Morley. That is pretty damn awesome!
The covers for Kristoff's Lotus War trilogy were quite eye-catching as they are, but I have to admit that this one drew my attention, pretty much right away.
Nevernight will be published on August 9th, according to Amazon and some other booksellers.
That. Is a LONG-ASS wait.
Then again, I still need to finish reading The Lotus War trilogy...
