Cover Love

What am I reading now? Everneath (Brodi Ashton)

Annnd . . . what do I think so far? This is a very emotional, wrenching retelling of the Persephone and Hades myth. Oh but if you know that story, you will still be surprised by the twist the author took for this one.

For Nikki Beckett life can't get worse than her mother's death in a car accident--um except it does, when she is lured into the Everneath (think Hades kinda sorta) for a hundred years. Everything she knew, and everything she thought she was changes. She wonders if she can have a life back, can she love again, and can she say good bye this time?

And the cover--AMAZING!

Here are a few more book covers I love:

Maybe it's the dress, but I love the castle in the background and the flowers and vines drawn around the bottom and edges.

Or it could be the movement inherent in the image. There is a feeling of torture and loss in this photo.

Maybe the intriguing part of this cover are the questions that it initiates. Who is he? What is he holding?? Where is he standing??? Why is he dressed that way (niiiice but why)????

Sometimes the cover hints at an impossible situation.

Or a trap.

And sometimes it's just the kiss . . .
