Judging A Book By It's Cover: Need

Here's the cover I'm judging today:

I like this cover. The trees are awesome, both fonts are super cool, and the light shade of pink matches the gold glitter nicely. It doesn't immediately grab my eye, but Need took me a little while to get into so maybe it's my issue. But I like the cover and think that it fits the book well. (By the way, I ended up really liking Need after a little while and Captivate-so far-is even better!)

Now that I've judged the cover, here's what it's about:

Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect lipsticks. Little wonder, since life’s been pretty rough so far. Her father left, her stepfather just died, and her mother’s pretty much checked out. Now Zara’s living with her grandmother in sleepy, cold Maine so that she stays “safe.” Zara doesn’t think she’s in danger; she thinks her mother can’t deal. Wrong. Turns out that guy she sees everywhere, the one leaving trails of gold glitter, isn’t a figment of her imagination. He’s a pixie—and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. He’s the kind who has dreadful, uncontrollable needs. And he’s trailing Zara. With suspense, romance, and paranormal themes, this exciting breakout novel has all the elements to keep teens rapidly turning the pages.


And also, if my header (the picture at the top of my blog) is way too far to one side, could you please comment letting me know and what Internet browser you use? I became aware that some people are having this problem and am trying to get it fixed as soon as possible. Thanks!


  1. That is a cool cover. I like how the gold glitter is actually relevant to the story.

    (The header looks fine to me; it's perfectly centered. I'm using Firefox.)

  2. I also love this cover. It's gorgeous.

    (Header also looks fine to me, on firefox)

  3. Oh, and your header is far over to the right. I didn't open this using firefox tonight.

  4. This arrived in the mail today. I'm so excited the cover is gorgeous.

  5. I don't know. This cover does nothing for me. But the sequel cover is gorgeous.

    I LOVE your new layout!
    I LOVE how you shrunk the sides!
    It looks great to me and I use Google Chrome :)

  6. I love this cover and Captivate's cover is just as pretty.

    Everything looks fine to me. I am in Firefox.

  7. Love this cover :o)

    Your header is way over to the right for me (I'm using internet explorer version 8)
