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!
