The Rules: Choose a cover (or two, or three), preferably new-ish, and share what you like about it. Grab my graphic or don’t (just so long as you link back). I’ll be posting Cover Love every Monday but feel free to post yours on whatever day works best for you.
|The eye makeup is beyond fab. It’s so detailed, colorful and fierce.
I like how red is the only color used. Even the model’s eyes are in black & white. Too cool!
The swirling letters and the combination of fonts used in the title are great.
|Days of Blood and Starlight
Daughter of Smoke and Bone #2

|In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Karou must come to terms with who and what she is, and how far she’ll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, mysteries and secrets, new characters and old favorites, Days of Blood and Starlight brings the richness, color and intensity of the first book to a brand new canvas.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone was declared a “must read” by Entertainment Weekly, was named a Best Book of the Year by Amazon.com, and The New York Times called it “a breath-catching romantic fantasy.”
|The model’s arms and the bike’s handle bars sort of look like wings. It’s a neat effect.
I like how the guy’s riding away from the sunset. Usually it’s the other way around!
Or is it the light from the bike? It’s hard to tell. Either way, I approve!
|Devil Said Bang
Sandman Slim #4
by Richard Kadrey

|While ruling the denizens of darkness does have a few perks, James Stark isn’t exactly thrilled at the course his career (not to mention his soul) has taken. Breaking out of Hell once was a miraculous trick. But twice? If anyone can do it, it’s Sandman Slim. While he’s working out the details of his latest escape plan, Slim has to figure out how to run his new domain and hold off a host of trigger-happy killers mesmerized by that bullseye on his back. Everyone in Heaven, Hell, and in between wants to be the fastest gun in the universe, and the best way to prove it is to take down the new Lucifer, aka Sandman Slim aka James Stark.
Then again, LA isn’t quite the paradise it once was since he headed south. A serial killer ghost is running wild and his angelic alter-ago is hiding somewhere in the lost days of time with a secret cabal who can rewrite reality. And starting to care about people and life again is a real bitch for a stone-cold killer

I really like the first two! They make me wish I’d designed them, LOL.
My CL ~ [HERE]
I love them all. I love the eye makeup too. Actually, it might be an awesome idea for a Halloween party 😀 Also, I like to think the guy is riding a Harley <3
I love the Elixir cover! Wow!
I love the cover for Days of Blood & Starlight.
We think alike!
Once again we chose the same cover!
I just loved Elixit cover and had to show it.

@tinkerbell the bipolar faerie Haha, I know what you mean but if only I had that much talent!
@Ruby I have a feeling that if I attempted to replicate the eye make-up I’d end up looking like a clown instead. LOL
@Nicola I KNOW, right!?
@emmameade.com Me too. 🙂
@Mariana Pereira Bezerra Hehe too funny! 😛
you’re so right, I love these ones, mainly the first cover. Really really gorgeous. thanks for sharing!
@Carmel @ Rabid Reads
Yes, I can see how it would be a problem. But I’d be the clown with glasses, so for me it’d be worse *giggle*
I love the cover of Elixir!
I definitely love the use of colour versus black & white on the Daughter of Smoke & Bone books.
