Covers So Lovely We'd Lick Them! (4)

The new feature co-created and co-hosted by LadyViolet and Jess hearts books where we show off a book cover which we find so damn scrumptious that we'd actually be willing to lick it! Every week we each pick a different cover so be sure to check both blogs!
My Pick for this Week
The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate
Me and Rachel are both loving the US turned UK designs this week. Usually I tend to prefer US covers for books. But in the case of The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove I think we’ve outdone ourselves! The US cover was dying for a makeover with the Fallen series by far outshining Lauren’s debut novel and our UK publishers Random House gave it just that. I love how this cover fits in nicely with the Fallen series without it looking as if it’s the third book. I’m also a big purple cover fan girl so they couldn’t have picked a better colour for me! The waterfall in the background and the colour purple actually play a key part in the story and I love how they’ve tied that in with the cover! I recently read and loved this book so I can confirm that the story behind the cover is just as gorgeous! To find out more about The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove make sure you stop by my review here. So that’s my cover for this week. Feel free to leave me comments letting me know what you think of this feature and if you ever get insane lust over a book cover, does a lovely cover influence you buying the book? Let me know and don’t forget to stop by Rachel’s blog to find out what cover she’d like to Lick this week!


  1. I love the cover, so mysterious. I'm definitely going to check this out based on that cover.

  2. Great covers. I must say that I like the UK cover better :)

  3. The UK cover is so much better than the US version. I have both copies but I didn't actually like the book lol

  4. I think the UK cover for this is *such* an improvement on the US one. I guess the US one does spell out the Macbeth link a little more, but the UK one is stunning.

  5. I completely agree - the UK version is so much better.
    My choice of books is hugely based on the covers. Not sure I would ever lick one though ;)
