Cover Love: Shine by Lauren Myracle


This cover is absolutely beautiful.  Like a painting, something I'd hang on my wall.  The colors have a very Victorian, soft feel to them, while at the same time seeming frayed and weathered.  And they all go together, with the same orange-tinted shadows--a triumph for color theory!  The single bright bud outlined by twisted branches is a great focal point, drawing the eye in before letting it wander around the lifeless-looking landscape.  Just gorgeous.  The book itself sounds great too! 



To pair with this cover, enjoy this cover of John Lennon's "Instant Karma" (you'll see why I find it appropriate if you listen to the chorus) by Lucky Boys Confusion.  A Chicago ska band and one of my favorites in the world, they performed this song when I saw them at their Notre Dame show several years ago.  Just great.
