Cover Crazy

Cover Crazy is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Worms on Mondays.  Its a brand new meme where the idea is to showcase a  beautiful book cover each week.  This week I'm crazy about.....  

by Leah Bobet

Why I Love It:

  • I love that it is finally branching away from the stereotypical solid black covers that teen books have been using to death lately. Dreary earthen tones lend to the mystical creatures' interpretation of urban life.
  • The girl's wings are the typical angel or butterfly wings we see on most paranormal YA covers, leaves you wondering what exactly she is. 
  • The sewer piping and the bleak, yet at the same time, blinding sun lead you to wonder why she is going "above".
  • The font of the title is misty and shadowed, the lettering is simple.
 Above comes out in April, 2012. Can't wait to see the finish product! What covers are you crazy about this week?
