COVER CRAZY: LIESL & PO by Lauren Oliver

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:
When reading my ARC of LIESL & PO, I realized just how very much I already love this cover. I cannot WAIT to see a final version. HarperCollins threw a *lot* of money into the ARC. The image isn’t flat like most ARCs, but embossed…and gold. It looks more like what the final paperback will most likely look like than it does an ARC. Plus, you know, it comes in an awesome box holding the most powerful magic in the world: The written word!

I love all the gold on the cover. The book is absolutely brilliant and I have a feeling that HarperCollins is going to do a heavy push for awards season. Can’t you just picture this book with a bright, shiny golden Newberry on the cover already? Silver just won’t match as well! I also love the fact that the gilded circular image is full of ghosties. It reminds me a LOT of A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charles Dickens. Actually, the book itself reminds me of several stories, but I’ll post more on that another time.

The cover features Liesl, Po, and Bundle. It’s only missing Will! The coloring is great and the cover is shiny and eye-catching. Kids are going to gobble this one right up, and rightfully so!

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


  1. I was going to say I like how the cover looks like it's raised but it actually is! Wow, and the little lock on the side. They put a lot of work into this and it's amazing!

  2. I love this cover so much! I have to admit that the biggest draw to reading the book for me is the cover. I didn't like her other book Delirium and I probably would have passed on this if it weren't for that gorgeous cover.

  3. That's quite the cover! I don't know if I've ever seen anything like it. It'll be interesting to see if the published edition remains the same as the ARC. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I am so crazy for this cover and the beautiful book box its kept in. I wish I was lucky as you were to get an ARC. I may get the pleasure to at least read the story from Netgalley if my request is approved. I'm waiting with fingers crossed.

  5. wow! that's just- above and beyond!

  6. Hi! I have given you an award, so hop on over to check it out!!!
