Cover Crazy {2} Chime


Cover Crazy is a weekly meme, hosted by The Bookworms. It's main focus is to share and showcase book covers that caught our eye, whether it be through great colors or just a beautiful design.

This week I'm crazy for...
Chime by Franny Billingsley
(Releases March 17th)

What I Love:
The sepia color effect used...it reminds me of those beautiful Victorian photographs.

The heroine's gaze is both innocent and haunting.

Creepy tree roots that look like grabbing hands around her and the little sparkle give it an eerie yet magical feel.

This cover says: "Come on and read me...you won't regret it!"

 What cover(s) are you crazy for this week?

  1. I see so many new things every time I look at that cover! Until you said something, I didn't see the tree hand. The bottom corner reminds me of a spider web. I also like the way the sepia hue contrasts with the blue of the title (and love the pattern in the font as well).

    I also like her expression.

    Great choice! I hadn't heard of this book before.

  2. I hadn't really connected the sepia tones with Victorian photos, but now I can't help but see it. Her necklace reinforces this feel. I agree with you, those roots do look creepy. The ones on the top left look like they're grabbing her.
