Hello sunshines! 🔆 It always makes me a little bit more happy when I type this post up, just because pretty book covers are amazzzzing!! Anyways, Captivating Covers is a meme created by me — @JBelkBooks. I don’t know if it’s just me, but sometimes I buy books just because of the cover. So, I created this meme to share my findings! 📚
Once a week, you can showcase ‘captivating’ book covers that you came across! They do not have to be purchased by you and they could’ve been found anywhere — bookstores, libraries, online, etc. Have fun with this and make sure to comment a link below to your own Captivating Covers!
💭 IMAGINE THIS: A fantasy series. Heck, that should’ve sold you already just because fantasy novels tend to have better covers (in my opinion). All three book covers in the trilogy are similar, which means that there wasn’t a cover change mid-series. Isn’t that a miracle?? All three are so mesmerizing that you can’t decide which one is better! Which one of the many fantasy trilogies am I referring to?
Author: Jaclyn Moriarty

THEY LOOK SO GOOD TOGETHER, OH MY GLOB!!! It may be because I am OBSESSED with the sky in general, but I love, love, love the color schemes used for all three. Not only that, but the font is so mystical and goes so well with the “fantasy” theme. We all know I’m not a big fantasy reader, but this trilogy would definitely be a cover-buy 😉

Synopsis from Goodreads:
A Corner of White (Book 1) by Jaclyn Moriarty
“The first in a rousing, funny, genre-busting trilogy from bestseller Jaclyn Moriarty!
This is a tale of missing persons. Madeleine and her mother have run away from their former life, under mysterious circumstances, and settled in a rainy corner of Cambridge (in our world).
Elliot, on the other hand, is in search of his father, who disappeared on the night his uncle was found dead. The talk in the town of Bonfire (in the Kingdom of Cello) is that Elliot’s dad may have killed his brother and run away with the Physics teacher. But Elliot refuses to believe it. And he is determined to find both his dad and the truth.
As Madeleine and Elliot move closer to unraveling their mysteries, they begin to exchange messages across worlds — through an accidental gap that hasn’t appeared in centuries. But even greater mysteries are unfolding on both sides of the gap: dangerous weather phenomena called “color storms;” a strange fascination with Isaac Newton; the myth of the “Butterfly Child,” whose appearance could end the droughts of Cello; and some unexpected kisses…”
