Magdalena Gottschalk: The Slippery Slope [M. Gail Grant] Cover Love Friday!

Why, hello gorgeous cover for a book that I very nearly requested an ARC of merely as a result of having such a beautiful picture even though it's the sequel and I haven't read the first book in the series yet. And, you know what, I just might request it anyway if I can get…

A Swirl of Ocean [Melissa Sarno] Cover Love Friday!

I stumbled on the cover for A Swirl of Ocean by Melissa Sarno a little while ago while I was browsing some of the new releases available on NetGalley and just fell in love almost instantaneously. I'm pretty certain that my love for this particular cover played a rather large role in my decision to request it.…

The Gauntlet [Karuna Riaz] Cover Love Friday!

I honestly just love, love, love middlegrade book covers. I don't know about you, but I'd probably pick up a lot more adult fiction books if they had amazing covers like the ones meant for kids. I know they say not to judge books by their covers--and, for the most part, I don't--but damn if it doesn't help…

Stalking Jack the Ripper [Kerri Maniscalco] Cover Love Friday!

I have always really adored the cover for Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco. Not only is it dominated by my favorite color in the world, it's just really exciting to look at. And yet, this isn't one of those books that I'd buy simply to have the cover on my shelf. And for me, this…

Beyond the Bright Sea [Lauren Wolk] Cover Love Friday!

My absolute favorite thing about the cover art for Beyond the Bright Sea by Lauren Wolk is how the ocean shimmers in a way that looks as though a large leaf has been lain across its gently moving surface. I've always been rather partial to the oceanic scenes on book covers, so this definitely isn't the first…

Idiot Genius: Willa Snap and the Clockwerk Boy [Richard Due] Cover Love Friday!

I've always loved this cover. In fact, the artwork of this book is one of the reasons I wanted a copy of it myself in the first place. I mean, how could you not fall in love with this cover? Wonderfully, this is also a book that credits the cover artist--though primarily due to the fact…

Mystic Princess [Kelli Marie] Cover Love Friday!

I genuinely feel like I have a thing for golden titles. Especially golden titles on green, leafy backgrounds. There's something just captivating about it all, really, and this cover does a magical job of getting your attention. Which is a bit perfect, I think, as this definitely seems to be the sort of book that…

The Portal [Kathryn Lasky] Cover Love Friday!

Oh my skies, I swear I just about screamed when I found this cover. Have you ever seen a more beautiful book cover? Because I can tell you right now that I haven't. It's just so damn pretty! I can't even really pinpoint something that I love the most about this cover because nearly every piece…
