Feature Friday

I'm starting a new blog post this week which I will call Feature Friday.  I am a self proclaimed "cover lover" when it comes to books and sometimes I just see a cover that speaks to me so much that I just want to share it with everybody. I hope to review these books in turn each week, (if they are released) and then on the next Feature Friday I will announce whether or not it was a good choice to judge the book by the cover!

My selection for this week is The Secret Year, by Jennifer R. Hubbard
Take Romeo and Juliet. Add The Outsiders. Mix thoroughly.
Colt and Julia were secretly together for an entire year, and no one—not even Julia’s boyfriend— knew. They had nothing in common, with Julia in her country club world on Black Mountain and Colt from down on the flats, but it never mattered. Until Julia dies in a car accident, and Colt learns the price of secrecy. He can’t mourn Julia openly, and he’s tormented that he might have played a part in her death. When Julia’s journal ends up in his hands, Colt relives their year together at the same time that he’s desperately trying to forget her. But how do you get over someone who was never yours in the first place?

The emotion in this cover is what drew me to it.  It is simply stated with a hint of longing or mystery hidden in eyes of the woman, while laying in the arms of someone else.  Very elegant, and wistful I think!  What about you? Check back next Feature Friday for my review of it and the new cover of the week!
