Cover Reveal Thursday (2)

Another week of new covers! I didn't find as many new ones this week, but, hey, I'm not perfect (though I like to pretend). If missed any, let me know and I'll add them.

Greta and the Goblin King - Chloe Jacobs
Thoughts: Although I like the colors a lot, I'm not in love with this one at all. My main issue is her fur stoll; I've always thought fur looked tacky, and only rarely do people pull it off. Note: she is not. The guy is also quite creepy, although he might be a goblin, so maybe that's okay. *shrugs* I do like the colors.

Two and Twenty Dark Tales:
Dark Retellings of Mother Goose Rhymes

Thoughts: I'm really excited about this one. I love retellings of old stories! The cover I like, but I'm not obsessing over. The names are a bit distracting from the cool images behind, although I do like that they make it very clear that this is an anthology.

Magisterium - Jeff Hirsch

Thoughts: I still haven't read Hirsch's The Eleventh Plague, but I added this to the tbr pile, because the cover got me to look at the summary, which sounded promising. I approve of the vibrancy of this cover. It's not beautiful exactly, but it's very arresting.

Splintered - A. G. Howard

Thoughts: I love it, even though I'm ever so slightly creeped out by it, which I think is because of her hair covering one eye. Anyway, the colors just pop and it looks so fairy tale-ish!

Best cover of the Week: Splintered by a long shot. For me, at least. Which do you like best?

Thanks so much for spotlighting my cover on your blog! I'm so glad you love it! The Abrams designers did a fab job capturing some important elements of the story. :) Nice to meet you, Christina!

Aww, thanks! I'm glad you're glad. Which is entering a dangerous level of repetition. Your novel sounds utterly fabulous, and I will definitely be keeping my eyes out for it!

Nice meeting you, too!
