Cover Love #7

Hosted by Bookshelvers Anonymous
Considering it's not only Fairy Tale February over at Alice in Readerland (something you must check out if you haven't) and Valentine's Day today, I thought it would be fitting to do a fairy tale retelling cover today. Most fairy-tales are about love.


Title: Towering

Author: Alex Flinn

Publication date: May 14, 2013

Publisher: HarperTeen

At first, I merely saw his face, his hands on the window ledge. Then, his whole body as he swung himself through the window. Only I could not see what he swung on.
Until, one day, I told my dream self to look down. And it was then that I saw. He had climbed on a rope. I knew without asking that the rope had been one of my own tying.

Rachel is trapped in a tower, held hostage by a woman she’s always called Mama. Her golden hair is growing rapidly, and to pass the time, she watches the snow fall and sings songs from her childhood, hoping someone, anyone, will hear her. 

Wyatt needs time to reflect or, better yet, forget about what happened to his best friend, Tyler. That’s why he’s been shipped off to the Adirondacks in the dead of winter to live with the oldest lady in town. Either that, or no one he knows ever wants to see him again.

Dani disappeared seventeen years ago without a trace, but she left behind a journal that’s never been read, not even by her overbearing mother…until now. 

Not only do I love the synopsis, but the cover catches my eye. I'm a huge fan of Rapunzel, especially after Tangled came out, so I get excited seeing her long, blonde hair. You see the tower in the background and everything seems so dreamy with the snow. While I'm not a big fan of her face, I still like this cover.

Happy Valentine's Day! 

What cover do you love this week?

  2. 1) Thank you so much for the mention! You are always so nice! :) 2) Great minds think alike, I came thiiiis close to using Towering for Cover Love! I really love the snow on the cover & the whole thing looks magical. I love Tangled too, I wish it was around when I was little, because I so would've wanted to wear the wig & Rapunzel dress! ~ Alice @ Alice in Readerland

  4. I'm not a fan of the dress, but the rest of the cover is pretty. I wonder what it would take to get a brunette Rapunzel.

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment I appreciated it. I replyed back. I found Towering on Goodreads a month ago and I have always loved Rapunzel and I adore Tangled so I put this on my much read list for 2013.

  10. I love fairy tales and I love Rapunzel! I have to admit I wasn't a huge fan of the author's book BEASTLY so I probably won't be picking this one up, but the cover is certainly eye-catching. A nice pick for WOW. :)
