Good morning, hope you’re all good.
Decided to do this random post today (Shelf Candy Saturday), which is where you talk about your favourite book covers. I have no idea who originally created this (apologies).
I just spent about 15 mins standing in front of my book shelves pondering, TOO MANY PRETTY BOOKS. I’m only going to talk about one this week and this one is just stunning. I’ve chosen And I Darken by Kiersten White.
This is the hardback editon/design. I think its ridiculously pretty, and aesthetically pleasing. For starters, how badass is that sword? its so striking, i can’t stop looking at it. The fact as well that the title text overlays the image in such a sleek way, it blends in perfectly.
Now how about those petals! I love the layering of these, specially with the way they look like they are floating/falling.
I’ve just seen the cover for the next book in the series Now I Rise
and I think it’s just as beautiful?! (I think I like the first one that tiny bit more though).
I think the designer (Alison Impey) did such a great job, she also designed The Serpent King, All The Bright Places, the Daughter Of Smoke and bone (US covers) and many more stunning covers, so it’s so no surprise why I love these so much.
I hope to read And I Darken soon.
Have any of you guys read this book yet? what did you think of it?
Whats your opinion on these covers?/what are your favourite covers?
