During the week I spot different book covers that catch my eye for one reason or another. I keep track of them all here on my weekly Eye Candy post. Most of the books featured here I have not bothered to read the synopsis for. Just plain old fashioned cover envy or not in some cases. There are the occasional covers that catch the eye but not in I want to read that book more of a oh my goodness what were they thinking.
Rachel VincentI am not normally a fan of gold but this is rather stunning.
The Mad Scientist's Daughter
Cassandra Rose Clarke
The title, half moon, and gray background drew my eye.
The Art of Disappearing
Elena PerezPerhaps it was the red lips against the pale skin that snagged my attention.
A Matter of Magic
Patricia C Wrede
What is not to love? Cute girl, beautiful dress, glowing sphere, and a nice soft light coming from the window.
Maggie StiefvaterI love black, white, and red as a color combination.
So awesome! I like the swirling grey stuff. Plus she is wearing a neat dress. Who says gray can't look good?
Alex LidellMaybe I am just in the mood for some good old fashioned sword swinging but this cover really struck me.
This might just be my favorite of the three covers. I like the lighting better as well as the angle of her face.
If I Should Die
Amy PlumSadly not my favorite of the three. I like the cover. The sunset really makes me a bit worried and sad. Is time running out?
P. J. Hoover
I love everything about the cover except for the font and effects they used for the title. It just looks a little odd.
Kat FallsOnce again I am in the mood for some sword wielding and I always like the idea of a girl who can fight. But it is all the yellow that drags this down from being awesome.
Love the blue! My biggest miff is with the bird. It just looks a bit out of place.
Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary EdghillMaybe it is the dresses or the hair that just didn't work.
Wow, there were a lot of covers that caught my eye this week. I wonder if that means next week will be a veritable drought.
What do you think about the covers?
Like it, love it, or could do without it?
