Shelf Candy Saturday (3)
A big thanks again to Five Alarm Book Reviews for this great idea to showcase awesome covers and recognize amazing artists!
The book cover I would like to showcase this week is one I have been obsessed with ever since the first time I came across it.
I just think this cover is amazing! I immediately grabbed Hourglass for my TBR pile, no questions asked, based on the merits of the cover alone.
A little blurb for you: (Goodreads)
For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.
Full of atmosphere, mystery, and romance, Hourglass merges the very best of the paranormal and science-fiction genres in a seductive, remarkable young adult debut.
The talented artist:
I cannot find out the info on who designed this gorgeous cover. If any of you have the inside scoop, please let me know in the comments below and I'll be happy to amend this post to give credit where it is due!!
