Beautiful Books - September 2014 edit

Every month, I will be rounding up some of my favourite book cover art from the month's new releases. As a designer during out-of-blog-hours, I love cover reveals and Q&A's with the artists! It's a bit of a dream job of mine to one day become a book cover designer, so I'm considering this good source for inspiration too ;)


Here are my favourites from September 2014


 I love the leatherbound look of this cover for The Girl Who Couldn't Read by John Harding. It's quite a departure from the look of its prequel, but I think it has much more of a gothic feel, which can only be a good thing!


 One of my most anticipated September releases! Rooms by Lauren Oliver is wonderfully simple, and I love that it stands bold in orange and yellow - not the traditional ghost story hues!


 I love the contemporary feel of Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang. The fresh blue and white makes it stand out and the graphical elements are intriguing, as they don't seem to relate to the title?


Ive seen two gorgeous versions of this cover - green and white. My favourite is the emerald green. I don't think green is seen enough on covers! Once again, the beautiful illustrations of the series take centre stage on Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas.


Finally, m y wildcard this month is one I missed from the tail end of last month! Servants Of The Storm by Delilah S Dawson is just wonderfully creepy. The oil-painting style is great and I'd certainly pick this up off of a shelf!

  3. Oooooh, loving your wildcard this month. I want to read that book from just looking at the cover and I've no idea what it's about - job done!
