Shelf Candy Saturday!! (33)

Happy Saturday! And thank you to Five Alarm Book Reviews for hosting this fun, weekly meme!
I love Shelf Candy Saturdays.

1. It happens on Saturdays, which is automatic happiness.
2. Book covers can be delicious and what better way to share the love?
3. You get a chance to oogle over books and talk to others about books.
4. It allows you to explore and discover books and their designers/artists that you may not have heard of!
There's more but I don't want to get too carried away.

Today's Shelf Candy is:



Dark Kiss by Michelle Rowen
Synopsis can be found here.

You might have already seen it, but read my review here.

There is such a dark beauty to this cover. The black whisp of tattered feathers. The dark expression of the model, wearing all black. Most of all, I love the blue light, casting a gorgeous, breathtaking, eye-catching light behind and on the model.

I mean, I'm not gonna lie. I already have this tale as an e-book, but yeah, I might buy it again in hardcover format. Why you ask? What do you mean why? The cover silly! The cover!


Mystery and danger await in this YA novel! You can just feel it!!

What do you think?

  6. Hi, Kimberly!

    Thanks bunches for dropping by and commenting on my Shelf Candy post!! Like you, I LOVE Shelf Candy Saturday!!! It's so great to be able to showcase all the lovely covers that talented designers put on books!!

    I gotta tell you -- I ADORE this cover!!! It's one of my favorites, and I have just received the book (the physical, printed copy that I can hold and cuddle with...lol), from good ol' Amazon!! YAY!!! I can't wait to get to it!! I agree with everything you've written about this SCRUMPTIOUS cover, but especially the fact that it's BLUE. As you already know, blue is my absolutely FAVORITE color!! So any cover with blue in it will automatically pull my eyes right to it!!

    I also love that model! He reminds me somewhat of Robert Pattinson. YUM!! So I want to congratulate you on a TERRIFIC choice!! :)

  7. I haven't read Dark Kiss yet, but I am fairly certain I would buy the book just to look at the cover. It is so beautiful, in a dark way. The title is intriguing, as well as the synopsis. But the cover is definitely my biggest draw. Thanks for posting about the book. I love the Shelf Candy Saturday meme. Totally cute!

  8. I have not read this yet, but the cover is amazing! I really like that the wings are a bit tattered, mostly when you see wings on a cover they are overfull (if that makes any sense).
