Cover Love: A Whole New World by Liz Braswell

cover love 

Don't forget to check out my review of Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley on Deadly Darlings today!  

I hate the title font.  It's too yellow and sort of kiddish for the vibe I think they're going for.  However, the rest of the cover is brilliant.  It takes the girl-face-cover to another level with a clean silhouette literally revealing a whole new world past it.  I love that it focuses on the buildings.  The golden domes.  The square and the palm trees.  It makes you feel like you're being transported.  And it's complexity is nicely juxtaposed with the simple parchment-paper background.  I just hope the book is good.  I've heard mixed things.

with every book cover comes a music cover 

Taylor Swift has grown on me over the years.  I mean, "Shake It" and "Blank Space?"  Yes, please!  But I'm an alternative girl at heart, so I adore this pop-punk cover of "I Knew You Were Trouble."  Adds a little edge, yeah?    


  1. Ohhh, I DO SO LOVE THAT COVER. But I don't want to try the book!! the reviews I've seen are abysmal. >_< Agh. It looks so promising though and I a) love disney and b) love the middle east and c) love retellings, so I'm still torn but...gah. It's the kind of book I'd like to own just for pretty factor though. ;-)

    1. God, I KNOOOOOOOW! It's really not fair. I may start it and see how it goes. Someday when I have a free minute. I love ALL THOSE THINGS too, but there's so little time and so many books.
