|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.....|

What I love about it:
- Even though it is following the Twilight inspired trend of black simplistic covers that I am so sick of seeing, I have to admit I do like this one. It actually intrigues me to find out what the butterfly in the jar represents instead of just looking at it be thinking, "Hey look a flower on a black cover...again...cool."
- I like that the glass jar reminds me of The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, simple but very meaningful use of "containment" for the butterfly.
- I like how bright blue the butterfly is in contrast to the black and also in contrast to the dusty fog in the jar.
- The use of light is interesting, how it is shining from one side and yet the dome seems to glow.
- The lettering may be the typical bold swirly lettering on a lot of these covers but I like that it fades out.
