I love book covers. LOVE THEM! On Mondays I take time to share some of my favorites or, occasionally, one that I hoped had been better.
Today I’m sharing:
I love this cover. It catches my eye everytime I see it. Actually though, the first time I saw it, I thought it was the cover for Extras by Scott Westerfeld. It is very similiar. This one has the pretty scroll-work that adds to it as well as the blue eye that just pops.
I also asked my 7th graders what they thought of it. Here is what they said:
Looks creepy (said many many times)
Dark yet attractive
Her eyes stand out
Sort of disturbing to my eyes
So as you can see it was a pretty mixed bag. The ones that new the Extras book thought they looked the same as well.
