Books and covers #3
Still thanking Rayna (she might be getting sick of it), for posting something about covers last month, that got me inspired. I decided then, to write about them once a month, choosing one cover in different categories and making a color as larger theme.
Yep, not gonna be a monthly theme, I really have fun looking for different books that fit the theme.
On this catwalk, blue shines bright. 4 wondrous books, to match my sons favorite color.
- Children’s book
He can turn himself into anything and appear to fit in anywhere, but it seems that neither the swirly snail, the green grasshopper nor the stripy sock want to be friends. Will he ever find someone to talk to? Someone just like him?
When I first saw Blue Chameleon by Emily Gravett I really liked the picture and the colors of the title. I’m happy I get to pick this cover, it’s so cute.
- Young AdultThe battle between Dark and Light is about to begin. Caroline Ellis’ sixteenth birthday sets into motion a series of events that have been fated for centuries. A descendant of Virginia Dare, the first child born in the lost colony of Roanoke, and unaware of her birthright as the heir to the throne of the Light Fae, it isn’t until Caroline begins a tumultuous relationship with Devilyn Reilly that the truth of her heritage is revealed.Devilyn is the only Fae who is both of the Light and of the Dark, and struggles to maintain that precarious balance to avoid succumbing to the power of the Dark within him. He is the only one who can save Caroline from those who would destroy her and destroy all hope for unity among the Fae. He promises Caroline that he will protect her at all costs, even when it means protecting her from himself.
Fae (Fae Trilogy #1) by C.J. Abedi. The picture doesn’t make me feel much. And the subtitle is not to my liking. But I love the lettertype and coloring of the title and that’s why I chose this cover.
- Sci FiEven in the future. there are damsels in distress…In the third installment of the Lunar chronicles, Cress, having risked everything to warn Cinder of Queen Levana’s evil plan, has a slight problem. She’s been imprisoned on a satellite since childhood and has only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress a great hacker. Unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice. When a daring rescue of Cress involving Cinder, Captain Thorne, Scarlet, and Wolf goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes as a high price. Meanwhile, Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.
Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer , I really love this picture and the way the blue color is used. The title looks good, but I am wondering if it would look better it it was in a different place. The red color in her hair and the actual color of the hair make a good contrast. A winner in my eyes!
- RomanceSky’s world turned upside down when she met rock star Dylan Morgan, and exploded when she discovered his hidden past.
Four months after Sky learns Dylan’s devastating secret, she’s trying to piece her life back together. Without an explanation from Dylan, Sky has no choice but to try and forget him.
Dragged back into the life he ran from, Dylan continues to spiral downwards as he copes with his fame the only way he knows how. Shattered by the revelation Sky knows his darker past, he forces himself to return to England and explain.
Sky and Dylan reconnect, attempting to build on the shaky foundations of their summer. But the outside world continues to conspire against them.
Falling Sky (Blue Phoenix #2) by Lisa Swallow Can’t say what I really like about this cover, but it has something that made me want to put it along this list.
My my, so many nice covers are passing me by and I’m not done yet. More next week, with a bright and sunny color. Can you guess what it will be?
