This title is so evocative of the book and the story within. Reading this story made me want to grab a surf board and start learning like Wendy, and the surreal feel of this story sort of transfers onto the cover as well.
no. 2 - Unhinged by A.G. Howard
You've probably heard me gush about this cover before. If not, I can quickly summarize. Morpheus. Beautiful color scheme. Intricate details that fit the cover character and story. Morpheus.
I adore the dramatic coloring of this cover, and the cover model's dress is gorgeous! It also reflects some of the changes Juliet has undergone since the first book yet also how her character has remained the same in some aspects as well. And of course the dramatic red accent that is a constant in this series' book covers.
This is a cover with true attention to detail. The title looks like Lara Jean scrawled it on in Sharpie, and the room is filled with pictures that I think I heard Jenny Han had brought, and as you look at the cover and its continuation onto the back you see small, truly personal touches that took this cover and made it into a real part of the book.
no. 5 - Gilded by Christina Farley
I remember seeing Christina Farley do a video when Gilded's cover was released talking about the different aspects of the cover and how each detail contributed to the story and the culture. Not only is this a stunning cover with a beautiful blue scheme, but it's really rooted in the mythology and details that Christina Farley brought to the story.
I hope you all have enjoyed The First Half of 2014, and I'm so happy I was able to share this with you. Although the series began as a spontaneous little whim of mine, I wanted to expand it and really explore the books I've read since I have really branched out into the various YA genres this year and hope to continue to do so. Of course, any book suggestions are welcome in the comments and I'd love to discuss with you!
