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  and decided to join in the fun!
 
Judge a book by it's cover?  Absolutely!

The books for A.G. Howard's Splintered series had always been a personal favorite--they all had a very horror/gothic feel with a creepy twist and made it hard to look away.  While I was browsing my TBR on Goodreads, I came across this little gem that I had never seen before--there must have been a cover reveal I missed these past couple weeks or something.

The cover illustration for RoseBlood is very similar to the ones for the Splintered series, with the huge, eerily eye-catching head shot.  But I can certainly say that I kind of like this on more so than the ones from the Splintered series.

And I can't quite pinpoint why.

RoseBlood will be a retelling based on The Phantom of the Opera.  I have never actually seen the movie or anything similar before, but this still intrigues me.  For a blurb of the retelling by A.G. Howard, head over to Goodreads (the cover links to the bookpage).

RoseBlood will be published on January 10, 2017.


Here are the Splintered covers, if anyone cares to do a comparison:
