Shelf Candy Saturday is a weekly meme hosted by Five Alarm Books! It gives you the chance to showcase books that have caught your attention in some way!
Why it's shelf candy:Random thought: Did you realize that the more you look at a word or title, the more you think it's spelled wrong? Lol that's what happened to me while writing this post. I kept looking at the word reached and was like, "Is that right?!" Lol anyway, I digress.
This series is mind-blowingly gorgeous!! I haven't even read any of these books yet, but... they're so pretty! I love how the backgrounds are plain and artless because then, all my attention goes straight to the girl.
They are simple, but convey such a strong message. The covers are related to each other and it's gradual process that tells a story in and of itself. The first one starts out caged, trapped, and isolated. The second one is all about breaking through and fighting back (I'm guessing?). The third one shows that the girl is finally learning to stand on her own two feet. Check out the ball in Reached. It's cracked, jagged, and damaged, whereas, the girl is beautiful, proud, and ready! (Ready to do what, I don't know.)
One of the main things that I find so interesting about these covers is the fact that they are kind of cold and distanced. There are no warm colors that invite me in. The girl trapped in the ball is ways away from me...
These covers get me soo pumped up to read the books! Ahh love it! If you've read this series then what's your take on 'em?
