Cover Crazy (1)

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."

(Thanks to Gina @ My Precious for introducing me to Cover Crazy! You all know I love to talk about awesome book covers in my review. Now there's a place JUST for such discussion! ^_^

This week, I'm choosing a cover by a debut author that was just revealed at the end of January. Are you ready?

Myra McEntire released the cover art for her debut novel, Hourglass last month. In fact, she released all the details for Hourglass because her publisher decided to keep EVERYTHING under wraps until right before the big reveal to form a viral buzz. She talks about how hard it was to keep everything a secret here.

Why I Love This Cover:

She's walking on the WALLS and her hair/dress/etc are brushing against the floor. It's so "wrong," yet it's mysterious. Plus, she's barefoot and looks so...vulnerable, especially with her hair concealing her face. The cover gives you want to read more! Who wouldn't pick this up off the shelf to see what it's about?

What do you think? What cover are you crazy about this week?

[Hourglass is scheduled to hit a bookstore near you on May 24, 2011.]


  1. I love this one soooo much that I've actually just pre-ordered it. Can't wait for it to arrive. I just love how she's standing on the wall and her hair and dress are hanging towards the floor. So cool.

  3. I've seen this one show up a lot around the blog-o-sphere. Its a cover which is just super cool and weird at the same time. So many question beg to be asked. Since this one is a DAC book I'm going to really be looking forward to the reviews! :-)

    Plus I wanted to say WELCOME to Cover Crazy. I'm so glad you decided to participate. Its such a fun little meme. :-)

  4. Ive seen that cover before and it is so freaky in a good way but still freaky. It reminds of those exorcism movies when the girls head turns in weird ways.

    here's my cover crazy

  5. This is the first time I have seen this cover- wow, great choice.
