Shelf Candy is one of my most favorite weekly meme’s hosted by Stephanie over at Five Alarm Book Reviews http://www.fivealarmbookreviews.com. For Shelf Candy a blogger chooses a book cover that they love and then they blog about it!
Here is my Shelf Candy pick for this week:
The NEED series by Carrie Jones
I chose series in part to honor the release of ENDURE, the final book in this series. I just read the book (review to come) and I enjoyed the read but it’s a little bittersweet because the series is over. I fell in love with NEED when I picked it up and I just love the characters in this series and I love the covers.
Black and gold is a personal favorite of mine, I think it translates so well on a the cover. It’s parts of dark, creepy and glittery and hopeful. I really love that. I love the gold accents and way wach one shimmers. The titles are fabulous and so is the font. It’s a book that I am drawn to again and again on a bookshelf. I have a hard time choosing a favorite because they are all so beautiful but I have to say I love the first cover, specifically the way the branches kind of climb up her neck. It’s kind of creepy and I like the contrast between the lightness of her skin and the dark of the branches. It hints at danger… who doesn’t love that?
So what do you think of these covers??
