My Cover:

Blood and Chocolate Cover

Vivian Gandillon relishes the change, the sweet, fierce ache that carries her from girl to wolf. At sixteen, she is beautiful and strong, and all the young wolves are on her tail. But Vivian still grieves for her dead father; her pack remains leaderless and in disarray, and she feels lost in the suburbs of Maryland. She longs for a normal life. But what is normal for a werewolf?

Then Vivian falls in love with a human, a meat-boy. Aiden is kind and gentle, a welcome relief from the squabbling pack. He’s fascinated by magic, and Vivian longs to reveal herself to him. Surely he would understand her and delight in the wonder of her dual nature, not fear her as an ordinary human would.

Vivian’s divided loyalties are strained further when a brutal murder threatens to expose the pack. Moving between two worlds, she does not seem to belong in either. What is she really—human or beast? Which tastes sweeter—blood or chocolate?

Why I’m Crushing:

So this is an older cover, but I still love it.  There is a lot of detail for this cover and I enjoy the color scheme for it.  The book is obviously about werewolves, which you could tell even if you didn’t read the synopsis.  There are the moon phases at the top of the cover and I really like the way the branches are in her hair.  Plus, the wolf shadow is really awesome.  The girl is very pretty, but she also has the ugly claws, which is a nice contrast with the beauty considering the kind of creature she is.  This cover is very eye catching, and it succeeds to draw my attention any time I pass it.  What do you guys think of this cover?  If you have one of your own, feel free to link and share in the comments 🙂
