Cover Crazy (34): Touching the Surface

Cover Crazy is a weekly meme that was created by Tawni over at The Book Worms to show which cover(s) you are absolutely going crazy over!

I'm going crazy over the cover for Touching the Surface by Kimberly Sabatini!

Touching the Surface

Life altering mistakes are meant to alter lives…

When Elliot dies for the third time, she knows this is her last shot. There are no fourth-timers in this afterlife, so one more chance is all she has to get things right. But before she can move on to her next life, Elliot will be forced to face her past and delve into the painful memories she’d rather keep buried. Memories of people she’s hurt, people she’s betrayed…and people she’s killed.

As she pieces together the mistakes of her past, Elliot must earn the forgiveness of her best friend and reveal the truth about herself to the two boys she loves…even if it means losing them both forever.
Here's why:
  • The cover has this really mysterious, creepy & rather melancholy feel to it because of the dark forest in the background and how it's sort of hazy, almost like there's a slight fog or mist.
  • I think it's totally cool how it's like an action shot since the birds are all blurred because they're flying and the girl is shaking her head.
  • Even though usually it's the font that catches my eye, the title font for the cover is actually quite plain, but it doesn't distract you from everything else that's going on on the cover.
I literally just discovered this book and found out that it's a 2012 Debut Author book, so it could be an option for the challenge!  It has a really gorgeous cover and an interesting story, almost like Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver, so I think that I'll be on the lookout for it this year!

Which cover are you going crazy over today?

  1. I like this cover. The birds make it kinda magical.

  2. Nice pick! The birds kinda look like paper crains to me, which with the added light effects looks awesome.
