Cover Crazy (2)


Cover Crazy is hosted by Tawni at The Book Worms! Stop by and join in on the fun.

This week, the cover I am crazy over is:

Dead on the Delta


Stacey Jay

Where do I begin? Well, for starters, there's a redhead on the cover. I'm partial to redhead characters because I'm one. Haha! And that tattoo on her arm has me a bit curious. I like ink. I have several tattoos myself... and there's something about that one on this character's arm that seems to just tell me there's a story to be told there alone with that.

The bold, capitalized font captures my attention. The colors are gorgeous. I love the forest and the way the lights are played out around the woman. But maybe it's really the line at the very bottom that has my head spinning completely around: "If you believe in fairies... run."

Well doesn't that just sound creepy? And fantastic! Way to really hook the reader in with just the cover! So now I wonder... are those twinkling dots on the cover more than perhaps 'fireflies'? There's a very supernatural, yet beautiful feel to this cover. I love it.

What cover are you crazy about this week?

  1. I like this one. This is the first time I've seen this cover. I like how the girl is positioned off center in the foreground with the forest in the background. The special lighting makes the forest almost magical. The spider's web on the bike is lit up making me wonder if it plays any significance in the story.

    Great pick for this weeks CC.

  2. I want to know why you should run from the fairies as well!

    I like how shiny the night is portrayed. Great atmosphere!

  3. I agree Gina. :) Thank you. I just saw it myself for the first time the other day. It's a book that's about to be released this week... I think I'll be possibly be picking it up soon. haha. :P

    Yes, me too, Backwards Story! Thanks for the comment also! :D
