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!
I have no idea why I like this cover. I just do. There's really nothing there except for a charred looking piece of jewelry that's really sparkly sitting on a background of burning embers in the dark. It just feels symbolic, somehow. And me being kind of stupid about art, I'm not sure why I feel like it feels symbolic.
Anyway, even if the promotion blurb of the book didn't catch my attention, the cover certainly did. I'm not sure if I'm looking forward to this book or not, but it IS high fantasy, from what the summary presents us. So I might just read it when it's available to me.
Burning Glass is now available for purchase. I'm just waiting for the library to get with it.
