Welcome back to Cover Awe, where we look at book covers that have caught our eye.

Sarah: Filigree with stuff – this time a fox, runes, and ravens
Amanda: Filigree is having a moment
Sarah: So is stuff!
Claudia: Stuff is like disco — never died!!
Lara: The colour combo is really working for me!
Sneezy: Me too! It has such a fairy tale quality to it!

Amanda: Any cover with a horse gets bonus points? I also love art style and how it pairs well with the book description.
Sarah: That is truly gorgeous. I love the layers in the illustration!
Lara: The brushstroke water is gorgeous!
Sneezy: Everything about this cover is amazing.

Amanda: I love the thematic covers of this series – two people whose faces are obscured by something.
But of course, you just know that halfway through the series, publishing is going to change everything and mess with the aesthetic and nothing matches anymore.
Also…are these good? Is it closed door? Please tell me more!
Sneezy: Ooh I’m going to check out the other ones!
Sarah: He’s got the tree for the mirror so the car don’t smell!
Seriously this is adorable.
Lara: this is a cover that would make me pick it up at the library

Amanda: Obsessed with this jacket
Claudia: Incidentally, what’s the ruby award??
Amanda: Took some digging because there are other Ruby Awards out there, but it’s the Romantic Book of the Year award by Romance Writers of Australia.
Sarah: We are going to have to have a dance off for the jacket, ma’am.
Lara: That purple is LUSH!
Sneezy: SO lush! And you KNOW they coordinated their outfits beforehand!
