Shelf Candy Saturday (22)

Shelf Candy is a meme hosted by Five Alarm Book Reviews and every Saturday, bloggers choose a book whose cover really catches their eye. I know you're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but I always do, so I'm choosing books whose cover alone made me pick it up. So I hope you enjoy my shelf candy!

I dont' remember exactly where I saw this cover, but I remember thinking it was so pretty! The colors are so simple, but they capture the title perfectly. I love how the white rose has red, blood-like paint splattered on the bottom half. A rose is so soft and pure while the red is harsh and deadly, making it seem like the cover really is about softly killing someone. I love the font used for the title too, especially with the thorns sticking out. It emphasizes the point that a rose is pretty but has it's sharp spots too. Everything about this cover invites me in and want to know exactly how you can kill someone softly. It's perfect and gorgeous!

  2. Jessica, really beautiful cover. I totally want to read this now. It's something how a book cover can totally make you want to read the book! I don't really know anything about it but I'm going to add it! hahaha

  3. Oh my gosh! That is beautiful- I have never seen or heard anything about this book. But I must have it. If nothing else to make my shelf look pretty! The rose, the red, the wow!!

  4. Great cover! I love the red and white contrast. Thanks for posting this, I'll have to check it out. I just noticed your blog background btw (even though I've been here several times...) and I love all of the quotes!

  5. Oh, wow! That cover is awesome! I'm going to have to check out the book now, I'm a cover judger too.

  6. Well this is an attention getter. So beautiful and haunting at the same time. This is my first time seeing it. Thank you for sharing it.

  7. WOW. What a breathtaking cover! It has a menacing look about it, even though it's so beautiful...the contrast is awesome! I agree with you about the font -- it's just right for this cover. The jacket designer was truly inspired!! Thanks for sharing this! I just added the book to my TBR shelf on Goodreads.

  8. That is, indeed, a stunning cover. I feel like flower covers have been real popular - ever since Stephenie Meyer's New Moon. This one is so striking, though, with the white and red. It seems like it would be a creepy and beautiful book!

  9. When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!
