Cover Adoration | Who Wore It Better

Posted December 29, 2013 by Christy / 1 Comment

  The series that I chose for today’s Who Wore it Better is….     A Beautiful Dark series by Jocelyn Davies   I’ve only read the first book in this series but the cover is what caught my eye and made me pick it up (yes, I know that I need to finish it).  And I have to say that the other covers are just as eye catching as the first.         My Pick: Looking at all of these together, I would have to say that A Radiant Sky is my favorite.  I just love that background and the color of that dress.   Which one is your favorite?
