Funky Cover Friday

In honour of the release of Maggie Stiefvater’s Blue Lily, Lily Blue, this week’s Funky Cover Friday features the cover of the latest edition to the Raven Cycle series. I featured this cover when it was revealed months ago and to this day, it remains one of my favourite YA covers. It’s a stunning mix of light and dark with beautiful swirls of blue and green. I’ve always been partial to the combination of these two colours (my bedroom was blue and green for quite a while in my pre-teen years).  I love the use of fauna along the side. It captures the very nature-based, but mystical setting of the first two books, while the face in shadow brings in that element of mystery. It’s somewhat ominous – a theme carried out throughout the series. This book is tied well into the rest of the series with the silhouette of both the ravens and the intersecting lead lines, subtly portrayed in the background. I’m just dying to read this book. Can it be November 1st yet (Canadian release date)?  17378508
