I happen to have a thing for good book covers. Who doesn’t? Book Cover Love is where I focus on my favorites. I might not have even read the book!
Today’s Subject: Stylish Shades
Book(s): Books in the Heist Society series (Heist Society, Uncommon Criminals, and Perfect Scoundrels)
Author(s): Ally Carter
Details: You can see art (Heist Society), jewels (Uncommon Criminals), and Hale (
Dreamy… I mean, Perfect Scoundrels) in the reflection of each pair of shades.
Relevance: All the things reflected in the shades are related to the books.
Overall Feeling: Fun and… how do you describe something with criminals?
Book: Since You Asked
Author(s): Maurene Goo
Details: I like the typography of the title. Did you notice how the “you” wraps itself around parts of both “since” and “asked”?
Relevance: I’m not sure there is any. But I still like it.
Blurb: High School. So funny I forgot to laugh.
Overall Feeling: Sarcastic.
Book: Life After Theft
Author(s): Aprilynne Pike
Details: The pretty landscape reflected in the glasses.
Relevance: I’m not sure if that landscape is the main setting of the book, but if it isn’t, there isn’t anything relevant to the story on this cover.
Overall Feeling: Pretty.
