Cover Crazy: Blood Magic
Saturday was feeling lonely without a meme of her very own. I stumbled upon the Cover Crazy meme over at The Book Worms and knew it would be a perfect thing for Reading Lark to join. The purpose of Cover Crazy is to feature a cover each week for us to admire its beauty. I really like this idea since there are so many great covers out there!
This week I decided to feature Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton that will be released in April.
This cover is compelling to me for so many reasons. First, I love the muted colors and the burst of red. I also love how the flower is shattering into birds. The flower also reminds me of a blood splatter which fits nicely with the title. The girl on the cover looks as if she is dead. I wonder if the title reveals something about how the magic of blood can raise the dead. I also like the mist clinging to the trees. It makes me believe that the story is going to be creepy and full of hidden secrets. I wonder who the girl on the cover is and how did she end up in this state. I also dig the font the title is written in. It brings to my mind Celtic lore.
What do you think of this cover? Leave a comment and let us know.
