Cover Crazy (5)

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."

I've been in love with Mary Lindsey's beautiful cover for Shattered Souls, her debut novel, for quite a while. I keep meaning to post it here, but something else always comes out. So finally, here it is. IMO, this is one of the best 2011 covers so far. It's GORGEOUS.

Why I Love This Cover:

Isn't it beautiful? I love the way the girl's body is made up of petals that break apart as your eyes move down her torso. It fits in with the "Shattered" part of the title. (I also love the way the title is shattered into fragments. Very creative!) I love the vivid color and the way the petals fade at the bottom. I love the way the petals shape her torso like a dress. It's just a fantastic, drool-worthy cover. Absolutely stunning!!!

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

[Shattered Souls is scheduled to hit a bookstore near you on Dec. 8, 2011.]
