Cover Grabby Hands Syndrome: Holly Black Covers

Sometimes you run into a cover or series of covers that make you stop, bow down to the awesome and maybe drool and develop grabby-hands.

They have earned my Grabby-hands stamp of approval.

I have a thing for crown covers. And this one really grabbed my attention. The colors and the realism of the water splashing on the title...amazing composition. But wait! I started looking at other Holly Black covers and WTF!? Does she have a cover fairy on her pay role? Cause she has a ton of beautiful covers I've added below.

You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.

The first lesson is to make yourself strong.

After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

Look at all this awesome!
