Shelf Candy Saturday #1


Shelf Candy Saturday is a weekly meme hosted by Five Alarm Book Reviews where you show your favorite book covers and explained why you picked them.

My shelf candy this week is:
Exiled by RaShelle Workman.

Why I chose this cover:
It's absolutely gorgeous. I love the model's crazy hair, and the butterflies. The picture fits really well with the character description as well. The cover is the main reason I wanted to read the book, which I'm glad I did because it turned out to be an incredible book. (You can read my review here).

What's your shelf candy for this week? If you don't participate, what's an incredible looking book cover you've seen recently? Leave your answer in the comments.

  2. Great pick, thanks for sharing. This cover is so eye catching and I've seen it everywhere. It reminds me of cotton candy lol.

    I've noticed the new Fallen cover is really pretty--simple, but pretty--the same gothic look as the others. Book #4, I think? I've never read the series, but I love the covers!

    1. I followed you back. I've never heard of Much Ado About Rogues or the series in general, but the cover is pretty. Purple is one of my favorite colors.

  9. I totally agree with all the previous comments! This is indeed a GORGEOUS cover!! The effect of the butterflies combined with the hair is simply perfect. I also have to mention the nice blue near the bottom of the cover. It adds that extra magical feel to this stunning jacket!

    I'm going to read your review. Thanks for featuring this, and have a GREAT weekend!! : )
