Wondrous Covers Wednesday: Watercolor Edition! (#44)


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
Made You Up by Francesca Zappia

~My Thoughts~

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
One Thing Stolen by Beth Kephart

~My Thoughts~

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.


Pieces of Sky
Pieces of Sky by Trinity Doyle

~My Thoughts~

I love how the cover artist took the main character’s swimming hobby and incorporated that into the book. Like Made You Up, I think it really fits the vibe of the book which deals with grief and figuring out about herself. 

I’ll be doing a part two eventually because there were a few other covers I’d like to show at another time. 🙂 Let me know what you think of the covers or the books if you’ve read them!

    Just added Pieces of Sky to my TBR, so thanks for that, Amber 😉 You know, for some reason, I don’t love the whole watercolor cover. See, in theory I do, it SOUNDS good, but then I look at them and I feel like someone got my book wet 😀 But since I loved Made You Up, I like the cover more. And I agree- I LOVE the cityscape in the back of One Thing Stolen. And I *think* that Pieces of Sky is supposed to be a pool, based on the synopsis, and THAT I am down for. Obviously 😉
