Cover Crush: Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White

We all know we shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but in today's increasingly competitive market, a memorable jacket can make or break sales.

I am not a professional, but I am a consumer and much as I loath admitting it, jacket design is one of the first things I notice when browsing the shelves at Goodreads and Amazon. My love of cover art is what inspired Cover Crush, a weekly post dedicated to those prints that have captured my attention and/or piqued my interest. Enjoy!

The cover of Kiersten White's Illusions of Fate stopped me in my tracks. I can't help it. I love details and this image is full of them. The birds are intriguing, but just looking at the jacket makes me curious about the story. What's the significance of the miniature landscape? My track record with historic crossovers is hit and miss, but I can't deny that the image has tempted me to sample White's work.

I love Kiersten White but I still haven't read this. It's weird because I've been dying to dive into the book ever since I heard it's inspired by Howl's Moving Castle. <3
