Covergasms♥ (9)

Covergasms♥ is an original Book♥Hooker feature that discusses all things cover related!

It's that time again! Time to look at some covers! YAY! This time, I decided to do some random covers that I have seen recently, or from books I've read in the past. They all have a common link, so let's see if you can figure it out...


Yep, you guessed it, FACES!
(and if you didn't, you probably shouldn't be here. Or alive really. Just kidding! Maybe...)

1) Shift by Em Bailey
          I actually just stumbled upon this cover this morning on a blog where I won an amazing giveaway (still reeling-yeeeeee) and loved it automatically. I cannot however find it on the Chapters website, so that should make for an interesting story of acquisition. It sounds downright creepy and definitely psychological, and I really, really, want to read it. The cover is so interesting and I love the style. It is so simple and complex at the same time, and of course I love the font :)

2) Betwixt by Tara Bray Smith
          I read this book soooooo long ago, and was kind of confused by it. the cover obviously drew me into this creepy narrative that I don't even know how to explain. It is definitely supernatural, and was also promising a sequel, which still has not happened... 4 YEARS LATER! I'm still waiting for some things to be cleared up.. Anyway, the cover is really intriguing and is definitely an abstract interpretation of a face. It is just as puzzling and trippy as the novel itself, trust me. The colour is also very eye-catching, and one you won't soon forget.

3) Delirium by Lauren Oliver
          I don't even think I need to explain how much I want to read this book, as I know that it is all over the blog-o-sphere, and probably most of you have read it already, or at least heard all about it. I can't believe it's taken me this long to get my hands on it, but it is in my possession now, so expect a review sometime this week! The cover is great, and I loved including it in my Face themed post because it is in fact a face, however shielded it appears. Which I think is a perfect theme for the cover and one that rings so true with the theme of the book, from what I've heard. The picture that I have actually doesn't even do the cover justice, since in person it is so iridescent and completely gorgeous. You really must see it to believe it; and I hope you all get a chance!

4) Dead Rules by Randy Russell
          This is a book that I don't know too much about, but I was immediately intrigued by the eerie cover and title. The close up is just so.. incandescent, or something, and makes you want to learn more. I wanted all the covers to be faces, but still a little abstract, and this one almost didn't make the cut since it seems to be pretty straight forward, but there was something so supernatural about those eyes that MADE me include it, and I'm glad I did. The plot does seem a bit intriguing (it kind of reminds me of the Ghost Girl series), but the summary still left me wondering, and definitely wanting more. Let me know what you think if you've read it!

I love all these covers, and have many more in my collection (and by that I mean my head, and a very unorganized word document) so stay tuned for more awesome Covergasms♥ posts, and let me know if you have any thoughts or requests!

Until next time--Cheers & Enjoy♥
