Cover Crazy (1)

Jan 10, 2011
Cover Crazy is a weekly meme hosted by Tawni over at The Bookworms. This week's pick is Luminous by Dawn Metcalf.

What I Love
  • Well, first of all, I absolutely love that the girl on the cover, as well as in the novel, is of a different racial background compared to many other YA novels.
  • I love how the purple of her blouse blends into the purple of the background.
  • I love the butterflies. I love the way they were incorporated into the cover art, or should I say they are the cover art. 
  • The font is simple and not too loud, so it doesn't take away from the cover one bit.
  • I love the way, Luminous, just rolls of your tongue, and you can almost feel just how amazing this novel is going to be.
This is on my 2011 list of wants (now).
