Cover Love #26: Red Dawn, The Blessed & Arcadia Burns

Cover Love

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.

My Picks:

  Red Dawn
Costume masks seem to be the new big YA cover trend and I couldn’t be happier. They’re so colorful!

The model’s green eyes really “pop”.

I like all of the swirling designs at the bottom and in the title font. Very cool!

Red Dawn
Crossroads Academy #2

Katia’s done running. She’s fought fiercely to protect her identity, her secrets, and those she loves most. And while it hasn’t been easy, she’s finally making peace with the past. Katia’s even looking forward to the start of a new school year at Crossroads Academy.

Too bad things at Crossroads are going to be a little different this fall. There are new rules, new students, and new relationships. Katia quickly discovers that navigating the halls of Crossroads is as complicated as ever.

When a friend’s life is at stake, Katia will be forced to choose between the safety of Crossroads and an enemy more dangerous than any she’s ever faced. Will Katia have the courage to risk it all -including her life- for a friend?

The Blessed  
The moment I saw the tattoo this cover was an auto-add to this week’s Cover Love. It’s to die for!

I like everything about the model; her cute bob haircut, her slate gray nails, her top… I think I have a bit of a girl crush. LOL

I’m happy that they kept the rest of this cover really simple so that the main focus is her tat.

The Blessed

Brooklyn teens Lucy, Cecelia and Agnes find themselves in the emergency room at Perpetual Help Hospital at the lowest point in their lives. Lucy, the superficial party girl; Cecelia, a drop out rock chick; and Agnes, a hopeless romantic. All rebels running from their lives and themselves, plagued by broken hearts and broken dreams. Enter Sebastian. Mysterious, compelling, seductive. He seems to bring each of them what they long for…

But in the battle for his heart, will they lose their souls?

  Arcadia Burns
Snakes give me the heebie-jeebies but they’re still beautiful and this one’s gold! Sweet!

Does the font match the snake’s skin? I think it does!

Another perfect example of finding beauty in simplicity.

Arcadia Burns
