Cover Lust Friday is a meme I have recently come across and it looked really fun. Cover lust is a weekly meme that’s all about covers. Alice from http://www.alicereeds.com is the host of this meme.
Pick a cover that stands out to you , add your reason why you’ve chosen that particular one or what you like about it. Let’s have fun and share some gorgeous covers.
The Strange and be beautiful sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
Publication Date: 27th of March 2014
Number of Pages: 301
Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava – in all other ways a normal girl – is born with the wings of a bird.
In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year-old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naive to the twisted motives of others. Others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the Summer Solstice celebration.
That night, the skies open up, rain and feathers fill the air, and Ava’s quest and her family’s saga build to a devastating crescendo.
I love the simplicity of this cover. It is just so well done. The feather appears to be a line drawing, but it is so well done. Another element I think works really well in this book is the text used in the title. The text appears script-like, as if some one is writing it in a journal. It appears to flow so well,which works so well for the prose in this book.
