Cover Art Weekend Blog Hop

 –

This is a fun meme for the weekends, count Friday and Monday as part of your weekend and have even more fun!

“This is a weekly meme, where you can get to display all those beautiful, funny, crazy and even those that make you think book covers you come across each week. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I love looking at different book covers. You may not be able to judge a book by its cover, but they are sure fun to look at.”

The Blog Hop is hosted by Yvonne, over at ‘Socrates’ Book Review Blog‘ and the rules for taking part are pretty simple:

1. Cross to ‘Socrates’ Book Review Blog’. Take the button at the top of her post and post it on your blog.

2. Chose a book cover of your choice and post it. (You can post as many covers as you’d like.)

3. Sign up with Mr. Linky at the bottom of the page. Please use the url that links directly to your cover art post.

4. Visit other blogs on the list to see what covers they are featuring this week.

The cover that caught my eye this week was featured by JoAnne, AKA ‘The Fairytale Nerd’, as her ‘Teaser Tuesday’ post.

It is in the genre of Paranormal Romance, which are not necessarily books that I would be rushing out to buy.

However, I hope you will agree, that this particular cover art is so arresting and eye catching, that it deserves a big mention.

Actually, can you keep a secret? I really like the synopsis and storyline of the book as well and have added it to my reading list …

‘The Carrier Of The Dead’ by Leigh Fallon

Synopsis

Their love was meant to be.

When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. After growing up in America, she’s surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRis.

But Megan is about to discover that her feelings for Adam are tied to a fate that was sealed long ago–and that the passion and power that brought them together could be their ultimate destruction.

Have a great weekend everyone

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • Hi Kathy,

      It is very striking, isn’t it?

      I think it’s the vivid blue, she almost looks as if she is rising up to some kind of crucifixion.

      Thanks for the visit

    • Hi Yvonne,

      As I mentioned, this is not a genre that generally comes at the top of my reading list, so much as I love the cover, I would never read the book for that reason alone.

      I have since managed to track down a slightly longer and more detailed synopsis and have visited the author website and that has swung the balance for me, so that now I am more than willing to give this book a try.

      Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate the comment

    • Hi Diane,

      There are so many books on my reading list, that I am not sure how many of them will ever get to be read, not to mention the hundreds of books which I already physically have on my TBR shelves.

      Looking back at some of them, it is interesting to see just how much cover art has moved on in the last few years. The covers on some of my TBR selections are sadly becoming very dated (pretty much like this blogger, I guess)!

      This cover really did stand out among the books I have come across this week and is fully deserving of a mention IMHO.

      Thanks for visiting and enjoy your Sunday.

    • Hi Blodeuedd,

      ‘Elegant’ is a great word for this cover, there really are some imaginative graphic designers and artists out there … me, I wouldn’t know where to start.

    • Hi Naomi,

      I checked out the book that you mentioned, as I have not come across either it, nor the author Jame Frey, before.

      It was so harrowing just reading the synopsis, that I am not quite sure that I could cope with reading the entire book, have you read it yourself?

      I see that he has gone on to write a couple of other books and all seem to have met with some acclaim, on both sides of the Atlantic.

      I found two different versions of the cover for ‘A Million Little Pieces’, depending whether you are US or a UK buyer, however I assume that you are talking about the US version, which was not only arresting, but somehow creepy and made me shiver just looking at it. When I enlarged the image and could clearly see what the content of the hand was, it wasn’t quite as bad, but it is certainly a cover that makes you look twice … I have placed links for both images, (yours first, because I think that the UK version is pretty bland and doesn’t really ‘say’ anything to me), so that others may share and comment ….

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts
