Cover Crazy Monday *2*

OVER CRAZY MONDAY is a weekly meme hosted by  the Book Worms.The point of this meme is to admire the art and beauty of a book’s design, so I’m going to post minimal words. It is up to you to write how you feel and what you like about it the way you’d like to.

Wings, Spells, Illusions: Aprilynne Pike

First off I cheated I picked 3 books but I couldn't help myself.
Secondly I absolutely love the first two books and I betting that the third book is just going to get better and better.

I love love love these covers they are beyond beautiful. I love how the cover wings is so simple and very true to the story. It's a deceiving cover because, when I first saw this cover I thought oh how pretty a butterfly. But now I  noticed they look like petals. Which if you read the books it's quite beautiful.

I like how Spells cover is a little bit more busy and brighter. I felt as we learned more about the fairies we got  more of revealing cover. 

As for Illusions I know you'll hate me but I love this cover as well its just as beautiful and the title makes me question what illusions are going to be depicted in the book and we will probably learn more about the fairies that make illusions. I love the book and covers and I recommend this series because it really is beautiful.


  1. Very pretty covers! I like Wings more its less busy! :D

  2. I found you through YA Addict's Comment Exchange Program!

    I have not read these books so I can't judge how well the covers fit the stories, but wow! They're so eye-catching! I love the colors on Spells, but I think I like Illusions best - the real flower with the mirror image is really beautiful. Great pciks!

  3. I'm currently reading Spells and it's awesome so far !! I agree with you, these covers are gorgeous !! =)

  4. These are very pretty covers. I think they get better and better as the series goes on. I love the vibrant colors and delicate flowers. I haven't read the series yet, but I like how you compared the events of the books and the unfurling knowledge with the progression of the covers.

  5. Great pick! I love the different colors for each book :)

  6. I think I like Wings the best cuz it's just so pretty and I like how it compares to the story! I've yet to read the next two but I love the flower theme throughout.

  7. I love Aprilynne Pikes covers. The change in color and word placement really changes up the look, yet keeping them similar so that it works for a series. Wings will always be my favorite of the 3.

  8. I really like the slight cover re-design on this series. They all match so well. I especially love the cover for the upcoming book. I especially love the way the title moves around. With this one, you're totally justified in choosing three! :)

  9. I really like the simplistic look of wings better than the other two. I still haven't read these books yet, but they're on my tbr list.
