Covers So Lovely We'd Lick Them! (14)

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
Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien (UK edition)
I bought the US hardcover of this book a good while back now because I’d been hearing AMAZING things from bloggers across the pond. At the time I didn’t realise it was being released in the UK and now I wished that I had waited because I’m completely in love with our cover. This cover to me is completely different to anything else out there on the market and I would certainly pick it up based on the cover. I love the cool duck egg blue of the background and I think the way the girls face forms around the words is awesome! I also love the pop of colour with the purple flowers making sure it stands out. I think whoever created this cover was a little bit of a genius and I’m contemplating replacing my copy with the UK version just for the pretty! (I can be very shallow when it comes to book covers) for me this cover is 100% lickable. So that’s my cover for this week. Feel free to leave me comments letting me know what you think of this week’s pick 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! P.S I’m not sure if Rachel will be doing Covers this week. She started a new job yesterday (yay!) and has been busy with that and family stuff so I haven’t had chance to find out. If she has done a post head on over for more cover loveliness and if not you should check out her blog anyway because she’s awesome :P


  1. I was just looking on Amazon at this book yesterday because the cover really caught my attention. It does remind me of a non-fiction book that I have seen lately with a similar sort of design, but I think it looks fab!

    Great pick :)


  2. It is a pretty cover! I have a copy of this one - must read it soon!

  3. This is definitely a cool cover! l love the colours =)
