Cover and Title Round-up

Cover pick of the week:

I know I featured some of my favorite covers and titles a few weeks ago but I had to add these to the list. In fact, as new books come out, I'm hoping for this to be a semi-regular spotlight feature here at The Long Ride Home.

Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers is a gorgeous cover with the photographs hanging in the background while the girl hangs her head in the foreground, the black and white images juxtapose a wall of faded yellow. This image seems to evoke so many emotions plus the storyline sounds pretty rivoting and seems to adequately match the beautiful and haunting feel of the cover:

When Eddie Reeves’s father commits suicide her life is consumed by the nagging question of why? Why when he was a legendary photographer and a brilliant teacher? Why when he had a daughter who loved him more than anyone else in the world? When she meets Culler Evans, a former student of her father’s and a photographer himself, an instant and dangerous attraction begins. He seems to know more about her father than she does and could possibly hold the key to the mystery surrounding his death. But Eddie’s vulnerability has weakened her and Culler Evans is getting too close. Her need for the truth keeps her hanging on… but some questions should be left unanswered.

Title pick of the week:

Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea by comedian Chelsea Handler is, of course, a spoof on Judy Bloom's long-time classic, Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret..

The book is a collection of Chelsea's experiences from sibling rivalry to parental humilation and everything in-between. I knew when I laughed out loud at the sight of this title that it had to be featured as the pick of the week.

So tell me, have you seen any good covers or titles lately?
