Cover Craziness (6)

...because even if you don't want to admit it, we all judge books by their covers.

Today's Category: Upcoming Novels.

There are so many upcoming novels with gorgeous covers! :)

Book Number One: If I Stay
Author: Gayle Forman

Why?: So, you're looking at this cover, and you're probably thinking, "Wow. It's pretty plain." And, yes, it's plain (which is partly why it's so cool). The coolest thing about this cover, though, you can't see in the pictures. I got a copy in the mail this week, and that's when I found out. The whole picture, the title, and the author's name all have this clear stuff over them that makes them raised up. It's really cool. :)

Book Number Two: Bad Girls Don't Die
Author: Katie Alender

Why?: The cover is just so... wow. When I first saw it, that's what I thought. Seeing the cover on amazon really made me want to read the description. So I did. And the book sounds just as good as that cover looks. :)

Book Number Three: Just One Wish
Author: Janette Rallison

Why?: This cover is really simple and not exaggerated, which, in my opinion, is what makes it so pretty. If I saw this book at a bookstore, I would definitely want to find out what it was about.

Want to join in on Cover Craziness? I post these pretty much every Thursday (though it had taken a break for the holidays and our author week last week), so if you want to join in post on Thursday (or any other day) and add a link to your post in the comments!

hope.

I have all three of those books, haha. I can't wait to read Katie's- she's gonna be my Fresh New Voice of YA for April. I think she said her book was a cross between Sarah Dessen and Stephen King- doesn't that sound good?!

The first one really is nice and simple and I like that the letters raise up. So nice.

The second one really IS awesome. I want to read it.

All three are pretty covers! I like the soft colors.

Thanks so much for featuring my cover (Bad Girls)! It grabbed me right away, too (it was totally not what I was expecting--better than I could ever have hoped). I actually blogged about it earlier this week.

Thanks again! And those other two are beautiful.
