COVER CRAZY: LIESL & PO by Lauren Oliver

8:25 AM Posted by Bonnie @ A Backwards Story

Cover Crazy is hosted by The Book Worms. Each week, bloggers "admire the art and beauty of a book’s design, so I’m going to post minimal words. It is up to you to write how you feel and what you like about it the way you’d like to."

Why I Love This Cover:

So, okay, I'm pretty sure I posted this cover as a Cover Crazy once before...but that was before I saw the final version in person! There's so much more beyond what we all thought there'd be.

I love the way there's a second cover hiding beneath the dust jacket (much like with DELIRIUM). The hidden cover features an image on the back that's integral to the story. Plus, doesn't it look so much more mysterious this way? This alone makes it clear that this book should only be owned in hardcover (if at all possible)!

All that gold is shiny and beautiful. If I had been born a dragon, it would most certainly be the most prized possession in my treasure hoard!

I posted this cover video alongside my review yesterday, but for anyone who hasn't seen it....THIS is why I'm even more in love with LIESL & PO's design than ever before:


What do you think? What cover are you crazy about this week?

    Oh I LOVED this book and my friend was saying how gorgeous the cover is so I ended up on your blog via google and I totally have to agree, it needs a Newberry to add that extra sparkle! Definitely getting a hardcopy for my Lauren Oliver collection :)
