Shelf Candy Saturday [4]

Shelf Candy Saturday is a weekly meme hosted by Five Alarm Books and I chose to do it so I could brighten up my Saturdays! Every Saturday, bloggers get to post a cover that has really caught their eye over the week for everyone else to see. It is a great way to find some new books to be put on your to be read or just admire the wonderful covers that are already on there. Judging a book by it's cover has never been so fun. [:

I went searching for this weeks Shelf Candy. I usually will see a title that jumps out at me throughout the week, but this week I had to scour goodreads. I know that Shelf Candy Saturday is all about 'judging the book by the cover' but I like to put books up that I also have an actual interest in. I also like to put up books that I have not seen before and that make me wonder to myself, 'How the heck have I not seen this yet?!' So, I was very excited when I found this weeks shelf candy. Check it out!

Why It's Shelf Candy:
Well, lets start out with the KILLER color that you get from the cover. I love the stormy tealish blue that is brought out, not only in the clouds but the water and waves below. Then there is the whole mans face in the sky and the woman's hair floating behind her. It just makes you wonder what the heck she is doing on that ledge. Is she going to hurl herself off? Is she trying to connect with the man in the sky? SO many questions come along with this stunning cover and it just caught my eye the moment I saw it. I was pleasantly surprised once I click on it and read the synopsis. I hope this story is as great and it sounds to be. I really like the premise and think this will be a nice twist on the whole dead paranormal thing going on. Now, seriously, how have I not seen this before?!

What do you all think about the cover? Is it enough to suck you in and check it out? Well, if it is, click on the picture! Do you have any shelf candy this Saturday? If so, leave me your own Shelf Candy Saturday link or just comment below and let me know what has caught your eye this week.
