Do you judge a book by the cover?

The book I picked for my featured cover for this week is "Afterlight" by Elle Jasper.

Published on November 2, 2010

Goodreads Blurb:
The Dupres have been Savannah's guardians, appointed by a band of root doctors and hoodooists, for nearly two hundred years. They've all grown...complacent. Now, the Arcos brothers, who've long been entombed at Bonaventure, have been inadvertently freed by a group of teenagers horsing around in the cemetery. Determined to take revenge on the city who entombed them, the Arcos' gather strength in the city's youth. Within the moon's full cycle, the gang's quickening will be complete--they'll become vampires. Newlings, out of control and craving human blood will ravage the city. The one thing the Arcos' didn't count on was the powerful love of a sister. Riley Poe will stop at nothing to get her brother back. The one thing Riley didn't count on was the powerful love of a vampire. Eli Dupre will do anything to get her. Follow Riley, Eli, and the vampires of the Dupre House into the shadowy, underside of Savannah.

My thoughts:
I absolutely love this cover. Everything form her hair to her tattoos and the large blade she holds behind her back. Its a awesome cover that makes me want to read the book. I have a ARC that is next on my to read list so keep your eyes out for that to find out if the books as good as the cover.

I actually really like this cover as well. I think the tattoos are gorgeous and the go well with the red streaks in her hair. The blade is a nice touch as well (not sure if I would be fighting topless, but that's just me;) Love the font as well, it suits the overall feel of the cover. Stunning!
