Shelf Candy ( #2 )


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
TitleRadiance
Author: Alyson Noel
Cover Photographs: (bridge - Hiroshi Watanabe/Gallerystock);
(girl - Betsie Van der Meer/Getty Images) ; 
(dog - Radius Images/Jumpiterimages);
(field - plainpicture / Maskot)
Designer: Susan Walsh
I've been a fan of Alyson Noel since her Immortal Series.  When I heard she was doing a Spin-Off of the Series...I had to buy the books.  "Radiance" is the first of (Riley Bloom Series).  I have it on my bookshelf, but haven't read it yet.  I just love the cover all the books she's written, especially "Radiance".  It's surreal and peaceful looking and I love the colors that were chosen.  As you can tell from above, I love images were used for this one book from all different places.  Susan Walsh did a great job designing this cover.  If you want to see other books she's created...you can click her name above.  Unfortunately, one of her Design sites is down for Maintenance, and it probably shows even more work from her.  I look forward to reading this book in the near future.  I love to see if the cover actually portrays the story behind it.  =)




Anna's Pick
Title: Angel's Flight
Author: Nalini Singh


I couldn't find who designed this cover but it's so beautiful I had to make it my pick this week. I'm a big fan of Nalini Singh but I haven't yet started the Guild Hunter series but I will when this special anthology comes out so I can read them all in order but I couldn't help but notice this cover. It's so eye catching! The colors only on the angel and the rest being black and white really makes it stand out.

Hi, there!

I'm a new follower! First off, let me compliment you on your beautiful blog design, which I see is the creation of Sapphire Blog Designs. That lady is AWESOME!! I follow her blog, as well. And that header....WOWO!!!! Thw wolf and the man are beautifully juxtaposed, and the man is GREAT eye candy!!

As for the covers you guys have picked, they're both very striking, but I especially like the one for "Angle's Flight". The wings, the colors, everything about it is just stunning!! : )

What I like about the cover of "Radiance" is the carpet of blue grass with all the blue flowers! I also like the bridge fading off into a haze, as if it were leading to another, magical world...

GREAT choices, guys!! Thanks for sharing!! : )

Both of these are amazing covers, but there is just that extra something special about the cover of Radiance. I can't wait to hear how much the story is linked to the cover as well. The lighting, colors and the dog are all nice touches. Thank you so much for sharing it.
