Welcome to my newest whenever-I-feel-like-it feature! I know there are cover features all over the place, but this one is unique because it highlights some of the books I have on hand in a picture with the my darling Fatty! I will also add comparison covers if they exist and give my humble opinion on what I see, picking my favorites. I hope you enjoy, so comment if you do! I love hearing from you!
This CoC we are going to cover Fallen by Lauren Kate!
Read my review of Fallen *here*
Had I the extra money, I probably would have bought the book on the cover alone. I love this cover. I love the shades of blue, the sparse looking trees in the background. I love the girl in her dark formal dress and lace fingerless gloves in the foreground. I love the dramatic font that fits the dark tone of the rest of the cover. I love the simplicity of it. In a word: gorgeous.
I couldn't find any truly alternative covers for this book, but I did find something I thought was interesting,This is a slightly different cover of Fallen by Lauren Kate next to the CD cover for Evanescence's album Fallen:
Perhaps. I'd say the similarities have more to do with the general subject matter within the works rather than intentional planning. Both works have a dark, mysterious tone to them, with the added veins of danger and romance. So am I surprised the covers are similar? Not really. This album could actually serve as a fitting soundtrack to the story. And both being called Fallen? Just icing on the drama cake.
I just wish the story had captivated me as much as the cover did. I've seen what the next book in the Fallen series looks like, and I'm excited to actually see it in stores soon.
What are your feelings on this cover? Comment and let me know! Thanks for stopping by! ^_^
