Artsy Shelf – 31 – Intense Red

You all know how I love  pretty dresses on cover! And I have mentioned at least once before with the Artsy Shelf feature how much I love red dresses. Well it seems it’s a passion shared by the YA world, as many of the recent covers feature stunning dresses in dramatic settings and colors.


I have always felt the color evokes passion and intensity, and these covers do a great job of showcasing red as a strong, intense, dramatic color. Contrasted with grays, white or dark tones, put in movement by the swirls of a dress, it stands out beautifully. Everneath is my favorite, I think, though The Girl in the Steel Corset is also striking. I also love Juliet Immortal’s cover, with its beautiful sea landscape.

Do these covers evoke as much passion for you, or do they miss the mark? Which one is your favorite?

    I love Unearthly and Everneath. I haven’t read them but I would definitely pick them up based on the cover! They are stunning – well all the covers are stunning.

    I haven’t seen this version of Unearthly before either!

    Love these posts, although I can’t say I’m drawn to any of these covers, particularly (but then this is not my genre of choice, either). My favourite is Juliet Immortal.

    I think there are two other covers that use the same image as Dark Angel, though the dress is a different colour!
