‘Cover Crush’ is a regular feature here at BCC. I love covers – they’re the first thing that catches my eye and will be the primary reason I pick up a book. This feature is where I highlight gorgeous covers of books I’ve seen either around the blogosphere or at the bookshop. These posts run sporadically, as soon as I see a cover I love, I post it!
I love the new covers for Eve Edwards’ young adult historical romance series comprising so far of ‘The Other Countess‘, which I reviewed last year for YA-10, ‘The Queen’s Lady‘ and ‘The Rogue Princess‘ publishing this July. I think they are all really striking and beautiful, but ‘The Rogue Princess‘ is my favourite.
I didn’t think I would like covers where the head is missing but there’s something I just love about these covers, maybe it’s the different colours or the font? Well, whatever it is, I love them. What are you’re thoughts – do you like them?
