Favourite Cover Friday #11

Favourite Cover Friday
Favourite Cover Friday is where I show you book covers that I have come across and really liked. They may not be books I necessarily want to read, though I leave the summary for you to make your own judgement  for yourself.
This week my favourite cover is:

Where it began by Ann Redisch Stampler
Sometimes the end is just the beginning.

 Gabby Gardiner wakes up in a hospital bed looking like a cautionary ad for drunk driving—and without a single memory of the accident that landed her there. But what she can recall, in frank and sardonic detail, is the year leading up to the crash.

 As Gabby describes her transformation from Invisible Girl to Trendy Girl Who Dates Billy Nash (aka Most Desirable Boy Ever), she is left wondering: Why is Billy suddenly distancing himself from her? What do her classmates know that Gabby does not? Who exactly was in the car that night? And why has Gabby been left to take the fall?

 As she peels back the layers of her life, Gabby begins to realize that her climb up the status ladder has been as intoxicating as it has been morally complex… and that nothing about her life is what she has imagined it to be.

I like this cover because it just looks pretty. The girl is pretty, the sun makes it look light and pretty and the background of the beach or sand dunes looks pretty.

I guess I like the effect of the sun. The sun reminds me of warmth and happiness. Although the sound of this story does not remind me of warmth and happiness and doesn’t really interest me.

What can I say? I’m a sucker for pretty.

  1. Hi Jordon, Thanks so much for noticing the cover of Where It Began. I think it’s gorgeous, too, and now when I think of the protagonist, Gabby, this is the image I see. I hope you’ll like the book as well. Best, Ann

  2. Hmm I disilike full faced pictures for book covers for exactly the reason the author stated… “…when I think of the protagonist, Gabby, this is the image I see.” I like to create and imagine my own characters based on what the author has written.

    On a second note, how AWESOME that the author herself commented on your blog. Very cool! (Hello Ann!)

    Photography wise… it’s a wonderful and very cool picture. Makes me wanna bust out the artist in me.

    • Hmm that is true. I find for me it really depends on the description of the character in the book.Sometimes I find it easy to forget the model and picture something else, other times all I see is the model.

      Haha yeah, that is pretty cool. Marta Acosta tweeted me over my Fav cover Friday two Friday’s ago when her book Dark Companion was my Fav cover of that week! Makes me want to make better comments haha.

  3. Great choice, Jordon! I love the cover for this one, too. :) It’s simple, but elegant. Plus, don’t the colors at the bottom contrast greatly with the white area on top?
