This week on #FaeFriday we’re talking about Sparkles. Faeries are associated with being obsessed with sparkles. So this week’s prompt is:
What is a book cover that was so beautiful you couldn’t stop staring at it?
I have to admit, I judge books by their covers. I know I’m not supposed to, but seriously a good cover catches the eye, and that always makes me want to pick it up and read the blurb. Along the same lines, a bad cover is an instant turn off. I’ve seen some absolutely beautiful covers in my life, but the one cover that stands out to me The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden. All of the covers of the Winternight Trilogy are breathtaking, but there is just something about this cover that calls to me. Everything is just so beautiful. When I bought my copy, I couldn’t help but stare at its beauty.
So now that you know my answer, what is a book cover that was so beautiful you couldn’t stop staring at it?

That’s a beautiful cover. I really need to read that series. I ha e had the first book since it came out but haven’t ever picked it up.
It is one of my favorite fantasies that I have read. I highl recommend it! If you like Audiobooks the audio is AMAZING!
That’s good to know. I have the ebook and when I went to C2E2 this year the publishers gave out free copies of the print so now I have it in to formats.
Oh that is awesome! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts when you get around to reading it!
That one is such a pretty cover! I keep picking up the library copy on my dresser just to look at it!
It seriously is gorgeous!
The cover of The Twice Lost, by Sarah Porter, immediately enchanted me and introduced me to the concept of Real-Life Mermaids — people who wear realistic-looking mermaid tails underwater, either for performances or just for fun. The ones on the cover were models professionally photographed by Chris Crumley. They’re so ethereal, you’d never know the story could be so brutal!
It’s always fun to find those communities around. It’s amazing how realistic the tails can be!
They really are! I’m amazed at the patience artists have to create such detailed tails, right down to the last scale. And, at the same time, to make them fully functional and durable, whether in chlorinated pools or in salt water.
I am part of a photography group that has some of the mermaids. It is amazing to see some of their photos with their friends.
That’s awesome! 🤩
