Cover Crazy: The Language of Flowers

Cover Crazy was created by Tawni @ The Book Worms.

The cover was the first thing that attracted me to this book. I saw it on Goodreads, and was lucky enough to receive a copy of the Australian ARC. While I enjoy arts and crafts, I wouldn't call myself an artist, but this cover has inspired me, and I really want to try and paint it!

While the text is the main focus of the cover, it is the little things that I really love about this book.

Its use of only 3 simple colours allows you to look at the detail, without getting lost in a barrage of colour. I think the font suits the title of the book perfectly. Also, if you look closely, the pattern of the red foliage creates a profile silouette of a girl. Having only read the synopsis on Goodreads, I think it suits the storyline very well.

Simple, yet classic. I love it!

I’m really excited to read it. What do you think of this cover? Leave a comment below, and don't forget to post a link to the cover your crazy about this week!


  1. oh that is a nice one! Looks so simple but elegant!

  2. I love the profile. It's also a clean, classic design. Good choice!

  3. I always like the color scheme: black, red and white, very sharp.

  4. Hey! Beautiful cover- and beautiful blog, too. :)
    I believe I've heard of this book. I think it's on my to-read list on GR. :P That is an interesting, artistic cover. And as you described, very classic looking. :)
    New follower! I could just eat this blog up. It's adorable. ^^

  5. I think this cover is gorgeous...if for no other reason than it's different. I enjoy the photograph covers that are so in vogue lately. But it's nice to see a variety of covers.

  6. I think this cover is cute as :) very detailed yet so simple! I just stumbled across your blog and I love it! I see that you're studying primary education! That's what I wanna do when I've finished school (in yr 12 now). But yeah, new follower :)
