Shelf Candy ( #1 )

Our first time participating in Shelf Candy hosted by Five Alarm Book Reviews. Every Saturday, bloggers choose a book whose cover really catches their eye.
 Ours is a day late due to both of our Saturdays being busy yesterday.  
Who doesn't judge a book by it's cover?

FranJessca's Pick

Author: Cynthia Hand
Photographer: Howard Huang
Designer: Sasha Illingworth
Lettering: Peter Horridge
I first came about Unearthly, the first book in the Series towards the end of last year and I fell in love with the cover.  I didn't even bother reading the description of the book.  Sometimes I end up kicking myself in the butt for it later for not reading the description, but with Unearthly, I was enthralled from the beginning to the end.  I know Hallowed will do the same thing.  I have this book on hold until I finish two other books from the Library.  I'm tempted to stop reading my other ones to read this one. 
I love the photograph of the girl on the cover which was taken by Howard Huang, a well known Photographer, who has actually photographed a lot of celebrities because it betrays the main character, Clara very well.  You also get a feel of what the Book may be about before you read it. I love Hallowed's cover a little better because of the designer laid it out, the swirling lettering  and of course the color blue since it's my favorite color.  Blue is very calming.  =)  
I found a lot of information on Howard Huang and Peter Horridge, but not much on Sasha Illingworth.  All 3 together make this Cover absolutely Gorgeous.  I definitely need to read this book 

Anna's Pick

Author: Elle Jasper
Designer: Oceana Gottlieb
The way I found Afterlight is kinda funny. I was so bored with everything I was reading, I just couldn't finish a book and it was getting frustrating. So I went on Amazon and just started looking and while looking at book after book I found this one. I don't think I even read the description, I just bought it. I love everything about this cover. The tattoos, her hair, the city scene in front of her, it's just very cool. I still need to read the second book but I already know I will love it too.

These are both awesome picks. I have been a fan of the Hallowed cover, but this is my first time seeing Afterlight. The girl on Afterlight looks bad ass. Thank you for sharing a Shelf Candy post. Welcome!
