Shelf Candy Saturday (13)

Shelf Candy Saturday is a meme that celebrates the many times unrecognized, but invaluable hard work of book cover designers. They say never judge a book by its cover, but you know you do!!

So now, run on over to Five Alarm Book Reviews (the creators of this fun meme) and check out more awesome covers!

This week I'd like to feature the covers of Carrie Jones' Need Series. I love the way they go together thematically and all include the gold dust that is a predominant part of the plot. Plus they're so darn pretty! The model reminds me of Natalie Portman.

I'm in the middle of this series now and am really enjoying it! (My review of Need can be found here.)


Gorgeous, right? Endure is coming out in May of this year and I can't wait to find out how this tale wraps up!

I couldn't find out a thing about who is responsible for these beautiful covers, but kudos to them for their creations. If any of you have any info, let me know and I will be glad to update this post!

I also found two different versions of Entice and I thought I would share:


I'm loving that nail polish! As far as the second one goes, I think I prefer the cover without the guy's chin in it. What do you think?

That's it for this week. Be sure to head to Five Alarm Book Reviews (FAB for the cool kids :) ) and see what everyone else is featuring this week!


  1. Oh I LOVE this series!!! What a great choice! I love these covers and the stories inside. I really can't wait to read Endure! The pixies in this seroes can be so creep- dont you think? With their tiny shark teeth and blue skin! Lol. And Nick is soooo awesome! Lol.
    Great choice!!!!

    1. I really like this series too! I just finished Captivate and am about to start Entice. I agree that the pixies are creepy and can see why they choose to use glamours instead. I wish I had glamour power sometimes when I just don't feel like fixing my hair :)

  2. I haven't started this series. The covers are all amazing. Need has to be my favorite. I love the dark branches creeping up her neck. There is not a bad one in the bunch though. Thank you so much for sharing them.

    1. I think Need might be my fave too, but I do like the glitter breath in Entice :)

  3. Ohh great shelf candy this week!! I love the gold going on in all of these. I have had this on my tbr for awhile, maybe I should get around to em!

    1. I'm really enjoying the series, you should check them out. Especially with Endure coming out soon! thanks for stopping by!

  4. AWESOME PIC! I love seeing them side by side! I see these in stores all the time and always wondered what they were about! They look awesome. Thanks for sharing!

    1. It's a pretty good series. I'm glad you like the covers too. I just really like the way they compliment each other so well.

  5. Hey, Steph! These are just amazing!! I love all the gold tones and glitter! And I agree with you -- the cover of ENTICE looks much better without the guy's chin on it.

    GREAT picks!! Thanks for sharing! : )
