Cover Crazy: ORDINARY MAGIC by Caitlen Rubino-Bradway

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."

ORDINARY MAGIC by Caitlen Rubino-Bradway:

This cover reveals the REAL reason for using/loving NetGalley.  How else would I hear about this awesome-sounding book...or discover  how much I love the illustrated cover?

To me, the illustrations look a lot like something Brandon Dorman would do.  First, THE SUMMER OF MOONLIGHT SECRETS by Danette Haworth came to mind.  Then I scouted out Brandon's awesome portfolio of titles and saw more books that's he done.  He's even designed Brandon Mull's FABLEHAVEN books!

Ahh, I want to know who the designer IS.  Does anyone know??

I really like the illustrations, and the way the school is featured in the background.  The school has a unique character in and of itself.  I also like the way the trees are twisting, the ground the girl is standing upon, the way she looks like an academic.  I'm loving the birds in the background and the way the sky seems full of magic and light, highlighting this (supposedly?) magic-less girl.

I really want to read this one!  *Come on and approve me, Netgalley/Bloomsbury! LOL!! I'm not patient when it comes to waiting...*


  1. Aww, these covers are lovely! It seems like the girl is walking toward the moon! <3

  2. I used this one for my Waiting on Wednesday! I think this book sounds adorable. I can't wait to read it. I WAS approved by NG and I'm PUMPED. Crossing my fingers it goes well for your request too!

  3. Wow, awesome covers and the colors are gorgeous...
