Shelf Candy Saturday!!! (21)

Thank you to Five Alarm Book Reviews for hosting this weekly meme!
And thank you for visiting me here at The Windy Pages. 
It's Saturday and you know what that means! Time to satisfy that sugar tooth!

Let's get on with it!

My Shelf Candy for today is:

Tris & Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison
Synopsis can be found here

I haven't read the book yet, and have heard mixed things about it. But for one moment, let's appreciate the beauty that is this cover.
The petals gently falling, the old fashioned row boat on the lake. A beautiful girl, the boy's face hidden. The soft colors and the blurry reflection of the water.
I love the blue/green of the title and the warm orange of the author's name. Simply gorgeous!

This cover screams romance.
And while I'm afraid it may not live up to its expectations, the cover alone had me enthralled. 
So that should count for something!

Have you read it? What did you think?


  1. I have not read this book by the cover is amazing. I can feel the love seeping from the book. my SCS

  2. Oh, I have so much to say about this cover! First of all, great pick. There is no doubt that it is Shelf Candy worthy. I have read the book though, and surprisingly, it is seems like MG at most. The cover is beautiful and hot at the same time. Like Jenn said, you can alsmost feel the love in the photo. Looks like a ton of suspense (notice there is no paddle) and romance. The colors couldn't be better in my opinion. This is one time where the cover, in my opinion, outdid the package inside. Read my review, I think that I gave it a 1 star.
    I am so glad that you shared this one though. The cover deserves the recognition.

    1. Hi Steph!
      Glad you like the cover too. Yeah, I saw the majority of people didn't care for the book. But I still love the cover! I'm going to still give a try. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised?
      :) Happy Saturday!

  3. nice pick! i do love the colors and the falling leaves/petals. i also like that depth of field used. overall a stunning cover.

  4. I adore this cover--maybe it's time to bump it up on the TBR. I'm not one to let negative reviews deter me from reading a book ;)

  5. wow this cover is absolutely stunning. the leaves, the water and the way the people are posed together. Its breathtaking. Why haven't I seen it before?? I must add this to my TBR pile!
