Cover Crush is my new meme here at On The Shelf where beautiful and eye-catching covers are spotlighted! Any cover can be showcased whether it be old or new, read or still sitting in your TBR stack. Please join in, link up and enjoy some beautiful covers!
Fans of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series and Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle trilogy will devour The Beautiful and the Cursed, a wholly original interpretation of gargoyle lore.
It was bizarre and inexplicable, but after it happened no one spoke of it and Ingrid Waverly was forced to leave her life in London behind. She had to trade a world full of fancy dresses and society events for Paris with her mother and younger sister, Gabby.
In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, the house her twin brother Grayson found for them isn’t a house at all. It’s an abbey. A creepy, old abbey with a roof lined in stone gargoyles that one could almost mistake for living, breathing creatures.
And Grayson is missing.
Yet no one seems to be concerned about Grayson’s whereabouts save for Luc, a devastatingly handsome servant who has some secrets of his own.
There’s one secret about the city that he can’t keep hidden, though. There’s a murderer on the loose. And every day Grayson is missing means that there’s less of a chance he’s alive.
Ingrid is sure her twin isn’t dead–she can feel it deep in her soul–but she knows he’s in grave danger, and that it’s up to her and Gabby to find him before all hope is lost.
Only the path to him is more than she could ever imagine.
Why I am Crushing:
This was also my WoW choice, but it deserves to be spotlighted twice in the same week. I mean, not only does it sounds really great, but look at that cover! I love the way the colors were done and it looks like it could have been made with watercolors. I also like the font and how curvy it is. Don’t forget that if you participate this week and link up, then you get an extra 10 entries in my current Giveaway! Just enter your blog link in the Rafflecopter option, and if you don’t have a blog and still want to get the extra entries just leave the name under which you left a comment on this post.
