Shelf Candy Saturday #5


Shelf Candy Saturday is put on by Five Alarm Book Reviews.  We highlight a book cover that we love, and explain why we like it!

This week's Shelf Candy is Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter



I love this cover!  Its so perfect!  You can tell its Alice, but its more contemporary.  I love her dress, and her pose, where she's looking up...looking really confused like anyone would be in her situation.  The background looks appropriately creepy.  But the best part? The tagline!  "Off with their heads."  Genius!

Do you like this cover?

  2. A big puffy gown and some wonderful graphic design. This cover is gorgeous. Ya, you can tell that it's Alice, but it is more contemporary and a bit grown up too. Very nice.

  3. The details in this are amazing, usually I don't go for the girl in pretty dress cover, but this one is so pretty.

    1. And usually, if its a girl in a beautiful dress on the cover, she usually has dark hair. Its nice to see a blonde!

  4. I think this cover is just GORGEOUS!! I love the contrast between the dress and the dark background I also love the branches that connect her to that lovely frame all around her. And the dress -- it's lovely! In short, this is a cover to treasure! Thanks for featuring it!! : )

  7. This is gorgeous and I just LOVE Gena Showalter. I love the dress, you can see the texture and the softness and the color is just beautiful. SHe is stark contrast against the vines sort of reaching from the darkness behind her. I really want to read this book, thank you so much for giving this gorgeous design some recognition.
