Cover Crazy is hosted by The Book Worms. Each week, bloggers "admire the art and beauty of a book’s design, so I’m going to post minimal words. It is up to you to write how you feel and what you like about it the way you’d like to."
Why I Love This Cover:
Sarah Beth Durst revealed the cover art for the German release of ICE, her re-telling of the fairy tale EAST OF THE SUN, WEST OF THE MOON (which I discussed earlier this year alongside other versions here).
Isn't it GORGEOUS? I'm still rather fond of the original cover, which looks like:
Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut if I knew any German, I would totally want that cover to call my own. It's too bad that being 1/2 German doesn't mean I don't automatically know 1/2 the language, right? Wouldn't that be nice....
I loved ICE. It was one of the first books I ever reviewed on my blog(here). Heck, I love Sarah Beth Durst! She breathes so much life into her books. Even though I'm not big on vampires, she even makes THEM sound amazing with her upcoming novel DRINK, SLAY, LOVE.
And this cover? Perfection! Both, really. You feel cold just looking at those images. You do when reading Sarah's writing as well, so they work well together.
I love the way there is ice cracking across the cover, and that even though it's so different from the US image, they still keep a polar bear so you know what the book's about. I'm sad that Cassie's hair isn't red on the cover, but it still works.
I think my favorite aspect is the typography. Look at that gorgeous title. That C! And oh, that E! How beautiful! True love!!
What do you think? What cover are you crazy about this week?
