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."
This week, we not only have a Cover Crazy, but also a brand-new cover that was just revealed TODAY!
Why I Love This Cover:
The design for TIMEPIECE is as awesome and unique as the one for HOURGLASS
was. When the cover was revealed last Tuesday (Monday?) after I had already done my Cover Crazy, I was really sad. It's been really hard holding off on the reveal until today, but I knew it was the Crazy for the week.
I LOVE the way the photographer uses so many of the same things, from the same model with the gorgeous curly hair to the wallpaper, to the way the model is doing something crazy unusual. In HOURGLASS, she was walking on the wall, and this time around, she's hanging onto the door. This chick STILL has no sense of gravity.
Can you say AMAZING? I have yet to read HOURGLASS, sadly. It's actually sitting at my bedside because I planned to read it this weekend for Halloween, and then I made the mistake of picking up INCARNATE and it blew my reading schedule out of the water. It would be lovely to read it soon, though!
Meg Cabot revealed the cover of UNDERWORLD (the second book in her Persephone & Hades trilogy; the first book, ABANDON, released earlier this year and I did a full cover analysis HERE when I reviewed it) on Twitter earlier today.
I think this cover really matches the first quite well. I think the model might even be wearing the same dress, so maybe this is all a part of a whole. Since Hades' arm is reaching out of the ground to bring Persephone down with him, maybe he will make a full appearance on the cover of. Maybe Persephone will be wearing the same dress again and it will be more of a...tableau of images.
I like the way there are still swirls, the way the square image is still down the spine (because I like when my books are matchy-matchy) and the fact that even though the cover is still dark despite being blue instead of black. I can sort of see all the embossing being silver this time around since it was gold on the first book, but we'll have to wait and see!
AND ONE FINAL COVER LOVE NOTE...
What do you think? What cover are you crazy about this week?
