Today a book we have all been waiting for finally shown its cover to us. We've been waiting for a few months and finally after much anticipation it's here. I present to you, City of Lost Souls.
But something doesn't feel right about it. A lot of people are going on about how amazing it looks yet to me it's a bit of a let down.
City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare is Book 5 in The Mortal Instruments Series and continues the story of Clary and Jace's love along with the rest of the cast. I'm sure you all know the story so there's no need to get into it. What I will get into is my thoughts on this cover.
I'm not liking it. Yes I like the concept of it following the others, I like the theme color which is the purple but I'm not liking the Clary and Jace on the cover. First off how they're facing each other and are (to me) bigger than anyone else on the other covers kind of ruins it for me. It feels too romance-like and too cheesy for my taste. Also, and my friend pointed this one out, the colors clash. Her dress and her hair. Yeah I get it she's a redhead but they seem to make her a weird type of redhead which I've never seen before. Almost pinkish orangeish. But that's not the problem. My friend was talking about her dress and how it clashes with her hair. I said they should have put her in black which would've been better. And going back to how they're facing each other, it would've been better if they were facing forward. Like the others but hey.
There's more to why I don't really like the cover but I just can't think of it right now. (Being sick and all) I just had to show you all the newest cover and talk about how far away the book is. >.>
