Covers So Lovely We'd Lick Them! (6)

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
Sweetly by Jackson Pearce
OMG OMG OMG! LOVE the cover for this book. If I thought the cover for Sisters Red was awesome Sweetly for me has totally outdone it. As you all know I love purple books *cough Nightshade anyone?* and the spook-tastic witch in the trees guarding the little house is just inspired. For those wondering this is a modern re-telling of the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale and if JP’s Sisters Red is anything to go by I’m sure this will be just as dark and gothic as the original tale but with uber awesome modern updates. I am SO excited. This is the cover for the arc but I’m pretty sure that they are keeping it the same for the finished copy! Heck they better and if not I want to see this book the same but with awesome finished copy shiny improvements. I’m just so sad that this isn’t out yet but when it is I’m going to be all over it oh yes I am! Side note to authors/Jackson/kind bloggers/ publishers: I love Jackson Pearce and would like an arc NOW pleaseokthanksbye *big puppy eyes* ;) 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 do really love the sound of this book. I am pretty much addicted to fairy tale retellings and Hansel and Gretel is one that I've never seen done so *super excited*
    Oh speaking of fairy tales - Have you seen Tangled? Beth and I saw it yesterday and it's So Freaking good!! Best Disney Film I've seen in a while and the songs are by the same guy who worked on The Little Mermaid = brilliant!

  2. I do love the cover of this one - it's very clever! I didn't really enjoy Sisters Red though, so dunno if I'll be picking this up despite the great cover!

  3. I love the colors of this cover !! Great pick ;)

  4. Wow. AMAZING cover. And I love me some Jackson Pearce! Can't wait for this release!

  5. This an amazing but creepy cover. I can't wait to read the book!

  6. l love purple covers too! My favourite cover. Love this cover, first time l have seen it. Agree with Savy, creepy!

  7. I love it but in a scary kind of way. I don't think I'd dare lick it though as that face looks like it would bite my Tongue off!

  8. I really like this cover too!
