Shelf candy saturday is a weekly meme hosted by the awesome Stephanie over at Five Alarm Book Reviews. It’s a chance for all of us to actually do the unthinkable and judge a book by its cover!! We can show our love for the beautiful artwork that make us want to see what’s inside the book. For more information about shelf candy saturday please visit (and follow!)

This week I have something really, really cool. Something you won’t see anywhere else until tomorrow…. that’s right I have the honor of revealing a cover! And I am going to do it right now!!!
It’s actually the cover of a book that has already been released but it is being relaunched with a brand new cover and this is the first peak before it kicks off a week long tour tomorrow here on my blog… (more deets on that later) but let’s get to the cover L-O-V-E.
My shelf candy pick this week is: Across the Galaxy by Heather Hildenbrand
I love the color and the “otherworldly feel” that it has. It makes me wonder if this girl on the cover gets caught up in something that isn’t of this Earth or iff she IS what isn’t of this Earth. She definitely looks like she is tough and experienced a lot in her time but what? And what is that light shining on her face? Does it come from within? Is she caught in the beam of an enemy? It really makes me wonder. I also like the font on the title. It really pops out and is easy to read.
As I mentioned this book has been published for a few years now, its Heather Hildenbrand’s very first book. For those who might not know she is the author of the Dirty Blood Series (Dirty Blood and Cold Blood and more to come) and I have read both of those and loved them. I haven’t read this book yet but I hope to. So, for fun I am going to post the original version of this cover so we can understand the full makeover it recieved. Here is the old version of the Across the Galaxy cover:
Personally, I like this one too. I think I do like the font on the new cover better it is a little easier to read but again this one has the same “otherworldy feel”.
What do you think?
I was able to speak briefly with the cover artist,Char Adlesperger and this is the information she shared with me about herself:
