Don't judge a book by it's cover. Yeah right. We all do right? Well maybe we don't judge it, but we certainly pick it up if we like what we see. Covers are not just beautiful artwork, they are a promise of what we may expect when we open the pages.
Morris and Chastain Supernatural Investigations series by Justin Gustainis.
I took a page out of Larissa's list. She is a series fanatic and loves how many of the covers for them have a special theme. I was drawn to Black Magic Woman because the artwork on the cover was so dark and mysterious. The title helped too. I purchased it based on the synopsis. It's a pretty cool book. Evil Ways is in my TBR Pile.
Black Dust Mambo by Adrian Phoenix. Doesn't this just speak of magic and mystery? As soon as I saw it I had to check and yes I was right! It did take place in New Orleans! I love this cover! This also made it into my favorite "New to You Series of 2011." If interested, you can read my review HERE.
Solstice Wood by Patricia McKillip. I grabbed this book when I saw it on the shelf in the library. It is a haunting, beautiful, bittersweet and sweet story and I feel the cover fits it perfectly.
Moonheart by Charles de Lint. I feel like anything can happen inside these pages when I look at this cover. And it did.
The Little Country is the first Charles de Lint book I ever read. It introduced me to Urban Fantasy. Every time I see this cover I think of how this wonderful, magical genre opened up to me when I read this book. I also think of Ireland, one of my favorite places in the world. It is so easy to believe in magic in that country. I wish I was sitting in that field right now.
