As a self-proclaimed cover junkie, I can't help swooning over beautiful book covers. Which is why I started Uncovered, a weekly post where I talk about my current cover love.
Hi, guys! Happy Friday. I can't believe that Christmas is only a couple of weeks away. Where is the month going? I confess that I just bought myself an Amazon Prime membership and a B&N membership this month. That way I get maximum bang for my buck no matter where I go. Of course I still frequent my local and indie bookstores but now I am totally coveredt\. So this week's cover love is for Under Different Stars by Amy A Bartol. I had never heard of this book or this author until I happened to stumble upon this cover recently. I love underwater covers when done well (see last week's post on Imaginary Girls) and I think this one is fantastic. It's beautiful and haunting and I love how the font goes with the fluid nature of the cover. I also like this color palette, which is very dreamy. From the synopsis, it sounds like this romance has a sci-fi twist, which intrigues me. Definitely one I am going to keep my eye out for.
All she wants is a home, but can she find one…UNDER DIFFERENT STARS.
Kricket Hollowell is normally not one to wish upon stars; she believes they’re rarely in her favor. Well versed at dodging caseworkers from Chicago’s foster care system, the past few years on her own have made Kricket an expert at the art of survival and blending in. With her 18th birthday fast approaching, she dreams of the day when she can stop running and find what her heart needs most: a home.
Trey Allairis hates Earth and doubts that anyone from his world can thrive here. What he’s learning of Kricket and her existence away from her true home only confirms his theory. But, when he and Kricket lie together under the stars of Ethar, counting them all may be easier than letting her go.
Kyon Ensin’s secrets number the stars; he knows more about Kricket’s gifts than anyone and plans to possess her because of them. He also knows she’s more valuable than any fire in the night sky. He’ll move the heavens and align them all in order to make her his own.
When everything in their world can be broken, will Kricket rely upon love to save her under different stars?
