I think this cover was revealed recently...
Author: Michelle Hodkin
Genre: Not really sure, tbh. Contemp? Paranormal?
Mara Dyer believes life can’t get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. It can.
She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed. There is.
She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love. She’s wrong.
Initially: Hmmm... *ponders*... Let's just say I don't find it spectacular.
Stop and Stare? Yep!
Image: It's a striking photo and pose, but I can't say I'm diggin' it. The way the girl is being held, the whole 'underwater' feel, it doesn't scream "this book just looks awesome", but more like "emooo".
Font: It's a yes-no type of thing for me.. it's a bit hard to read, plus the way the letters are formed, it looks like "malra". But.. I love how the title is huge :) And spreads across the whole cover, tres cool.
Colours: Depressing, moody, creates more of a dreary ambiance but it seems like that was the aim?... Is this good? Maybe, because sometimes I'm in the mood for those darker reads.
Harry Potter Rating (O.W.Ls*): Acceptable
Will I Read? Yes, based on a great synopsis.
So yeah, please feel free to disagree with me because I know a LOT of you will love this cover!
QUESTION: What's know your opinion on this feature, for example, would you like me to keep the book's summary? Or a link to Goodreads is enough? And is there any particulars you'd like me to comment on in the future (like the categories: image, font, etc...)?
And yes, I realize covers or subjective to the tenth power.
Your thoughts on the cover? And if you'd like, share some covers you'd like me to feature ^_^
