I spotted this luscious book over on Down the Rabbit Hole. Amber posted it yesterday for her WoW pick. I thought I would share the cover love.

Published Date: October 4, 2011
Age Group: Young Adult +
Why do I have a crush on this book cover?
1. The simple title of the book is great. Plus, the script is lovely. I’m guessing Eve is the name of the protagonist and the girl on the cover.
2. I love the fading colors: the sea green to the hint of light neon blue to the smoky gray. I also like the characters red hair and brown dress.
3. The bridge. It holds a sense of mystery. I like the fading of it into the background. But it looks like the bridge is up. Oh no! Our heroine is, either, running away from something or toward something beyond the bridge. The running and the bridge up add a great plot device — the ticking clock. Will she make it in time? Or is she too late? The cover has everything going for it: mystery, illusion, fear and hope. Bravo!
The story sounds awesome! As you know, I’m a big fan of dystopian and THE HUNGER GAMES. I hope EVE lives up to the blurb hype. If you are wondering what a broodmare is it’s a female horse used for breeding. Eeek! EVE does sound like many current dystopians: THE HUNGER GAMES, WITHER, MATCHED, DELIRIUM…but I’m definitely interested in reading it!
