Cover Crush: We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

Hello, my name is Colleen and I am a cover slut. I know, I aren't supposed to judge a book by it's cover. I just can't help myself! A beautiful cover draws my eye every single time and I can't help but pick up the book it's dressing and see if the inside seems as intriguing as the outside. Sometimes it does, and sometimes a pretty cover is just a pretty cover. Either way, I love getting an eyeful!

One of my favorite bloggers, Erin at
Flashlight Commentary, created a weekly blog post called Cover Crush and she and some other blogger friends are sharing their favorite covers each Thursday. I've decided to join in this year and will link to their posts down below.

So, without further ado, my Cover Crush this week is.....

This cover is so different than the usual cover I gravitate towards but, for reasons I can't quite put into words, I'm really digging it! I found it when doing a search of the best cover art for 2017 and I have to agree it's quite interesting. From the drawn image I'm guessing this is YA and it makes me think of a comic book or graphic novel. I love the fact that the girl standing on the bed is clearly in a room but seeing or dreaming of a beach or lake or something similar. It's very different from anything else I've seen before!

Let's see what the book is really about....

You go through life thinking there’s so much you need…

Until you leave with only your phone, your wallet, and a picture of your mother.

Marin hasn’t spoken to anyone from her old life since the day she left everything behind. No one knows the truth about those final weeks. Not even her best friend, Mabel. But even thousands of miles away from the California coast, at college in New York, Marin still feels the pull of the life and tragedy she’s tried to outrun. Now, months later, alone in an emptied dorm for winter break, Marin waits. Mabel is coming to visit, and Marin will be forced to face everything that’s been left unsaid and finally confront the loneliness that has made a home in her heart.

Don't forget to check out what covers my blogger buddies are drooling over this week (updated as they become available):
