Another Cover (3) ; so silver bright

So I saw this post at Frenetic Reader and it was like minutes after I finished my last Another Cover post, but Khy featured two new book covers, the second which I couldn't get out of my head which is why I'm having another cover post so soon. Sorry for that rambly sentence...

Title: So Silver Bright
series: Théâtre Illuminata #3
Author: Lisa Mantchev
Genre: magical realism

Things are never easy for Beatrice Shakespeare Smith. Something's happened to the Théâtre Illuminata, putting the only home she's ever known in limbo. Her mother's sanity is fraying under the strain, her father has vanished and an angry goddess is out for revenge. Bertie is caught between her duties and her dreams, just as her heart is torn between Ariel and Nate. But hope glimmers in a Distant Castle, and if Bertie can put on the performance of her life, maybe she can win the magical boon that may save them all.

Books 1 & 2 in the series:

My Thoughts:

Initially: Wowza.

Stop and Stare? Yes! and add to the end of that, "Swoon"

Image: I loove everything about it, starting from the fact that it looks simply whimsical and not a photo-photo. In the name of Tim Gunn, the designer makes it work. The white dress is incredible, and I love the pop of the girl's silver hair! And the faeries! Too awesome!

Font: Beautiful, and I know it's minor but I like how on some letters there's a dot, I think it just adds a little touch :)

Colours: Just great, seriously, absolutely no complaints. The white and silver makes the image pop, and nothing is lost to the background. The faeries add a wonderful touch of colour too.

HP Rating: Outstanding!!

Will I Read? Hopefully, after I read the second book that is! I liked the first one very much :)


So what do YOU think of the cover? And believe me, there is only ONE right answer ;)
