Wondrous Covers Wednesday is a weekly feature where I share my cover love by showing off three covers with common themes or attributes. You can see past posts here.
Hi everyone, it has been forever since I have done this feature and that makes me sad. 😦 And since it makes me sad, I was thinking of emotion which made me think of art because art has a lot of emotion in it. This then lead me to deciding to showcase watercolor covers!
Well, that would have been great, had it gone that way, but mostly I glanced at my list and said “Oh, Watercolors sounds cool”. So there you have it.
Made You Up by Francesca Zappia
This is such a gorgeous cover. I love how all the colors blend together and they look so glossy. I think it fits the book well because Made You Up is about a teen who is schizophrenic and I think the painted images really display the sort of feeling of that.
One Thing Stolen by Beth Kephart
Like Made You Up, the main character, Nadia also suffers from a disorder, a rare neurological disorder. For a novel that takes place in Italy, one of the homes to the greatest art in the world, I think this cover is perfectly suited for it. I love the splashes of color in the background. I especially love the city in the background that you can only see if you look closely (or is that just me?) It really adds to this cover. I love only seeing part of the main character, Nadia’s face as it adds to the idea that she steal things and the mystery of her.
