Shelf Candy Saturday! (5)

Thanks to Five Alarm Book Reviews for hosting Shelf Candy every Saturday!

My Shelf Candy for this Saturday is:

 "Luminous" by Dawn Metcalf

Synopsis can be found here.

What is NOT to love about this cover? The model's soft gaze at the reader is not confrontational, but she's not frightened either. She looks strong and complex.

The colors of the butterflies are bright, blended and startling. They look like they are in motion before your very eyes. And the mystery! The girl looks like she made of butterflies! She is gradually, butterfly by butterfly, being whisked away into the wind to some magical adventure.   After reading the synopsis, it's not wonder there's this fantasy element on the cover. This magical and vivid cover makes me so anxious to own this novel.  

What is your Shelf Candy today?


  1. I have featured Jeanine Henderson this week and Luminous is another one of her designs. How cool is that?
    The synopsis sounds really different.
    Thank you for participating in Shelf Candy.

  2. Ooh! You're right, it is really lovely! :)

  3. Love it! That is such a gorgeous cover. I'm a total sucker for anything with butterflies. It sounds like a great read too.

    Thanks for stopping by Project to be Read :)
