Covers So Lovely We'd Lick Them! (7)

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
Entwined by Heather Dixon
Keeping with the fairy tale re-telling theme of last week this week’s pick Entwined is a re-telling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses. This has been receiving a lot of praise on the blogosphere and if the covers anything to go by it looks like it’s going to be a gorgeous book to get lost in. I love my old fashioned girly fairy princess stories and this looks like it fits the bill perfectly. Enchanted, beautiful garden- check. Gorgeous princess dress to boot- check. Grand tall standing castle- check. As well as the pretty loopy old school font and the flowers tangling themselves around the book this book just screams fairy tale princess book for young adults. I LOVE this cover and absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on it come March 29th.
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!

  4. This one caught my eye because of the beauitful cover- it's just such a *perfect* design for a fairytale retelling. In answer to your question, I probably would be more likely to buy it rather than wait for it to come in at the library so I can stare at the pretty cover on the bookshelf :)
