Covers to Gush Over (19)

The Literature Monsters are back from their hiatus with a new bath of CTGO. In order to get back into the swing of things, we’ve decided to make this week’s theme a free for all.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

The cover for John Green’s newest novel looks amazing! It’s so simple, yet elegant and very eye catching. By now I would usually be commenting about how certain aspects of the cover reflect the pages within it, but The Fault in Our Stars has not been released yet.  I can however guess that the two clouds might be symbols for contrast in the novel that at some point overlap. Finally, I love the bright blue colour they used for the background base and how the title and author name look like they were written in chalk. I can’t wait for this book to be released.

Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Deadly Little Secret has such a dainty elegant yet simple cover, which I adore. The simple style off a young woman in a floral patterned dress/skirt standing in the forest surrounded by grass and trees. The girls pale legs, seem to make the pattern of the dress and colours of the forest pop and make the cover as graceful and beautifully simple as it is. Not only are the images beautiful, but the text in the top middle of the cover surrounding the title makes a detailed and wonderful border. Such a nice cover, and I don't think I could have chosen a better one for my choice this week!

A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink

This cover depicts a feeling of eeriness and mystery though it's use of dark colours and shadows which creates the feeling that there is a secret surrounding the character. It could also mean that the topic of the novel is dark and dangerous. Two of my favorite things! The fog that is swirling around the model, who is the main heroine Helen Cartwright creates the illusion that she is either lost or confused, which could also be an indication of what the book will be about! I personally like how the play of shadows on her face enhances her features and make her blue eyes pop. Amongst the dark colours there is a blue accent colour that is seen on her hood or cloak and this is a clever because it adds a bit of much needed color! Overall I love how simple and eye-catching this cover is and how the title of the book is in big and white letters. I think it makes the subject of the novel stand out and catch reader’s attention.
