Cover Reveal: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Yesterday the cover to Myra McEntire's debut YA novel was revealed. And my was it a pretty one. Go ahead...take a gander.


"Since the age of fourteen, Emerson Cole has seen strange things – dead things – swooning Southern Belles, soldiers, and other eerie apparitions of the past. She’s tried everything to get rid of the visions: medication, counseling, asylums. Nothing’s worked.

So when Emerson's well-meaning brother calls in yet another consultant from a mysterious organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to give it one last try.

Michael Weaver is no ordinary consultant. He's barely older than she is; he listens like no one she's ever met before; and he doesn't make her feel the least bit crazy. As Emerson ventures deeper into the world of the Hourglass, she begins to learn the truth about her past, her future--and her very life.

A seductive time-slip novel that merges the very best of the paranormal and science fiction genres, Myra McEntire’s Hourglass is a stunning debut from an author to watch."


Now we all know that it sounds amazing. So let's talk about the cover. 

I will admit that it took me a second to see that she's actually standing on the wall and she's facing the floor. That alone would make me pick up this book. The model's position is great and although the colors are subdued they still stand out. I think it's safe to say that this cover is gorgeous and, if anything, has made me want this book even more.

I find this cover really scary! I'm not sure why exactly, but it gives me the creeps. I love the colors, too. Such a contrast between the light, bright colors and the model's strange position on the wall.

I LOVE that in this book it takes more than one person to do it. I have never liked that books like Tempest, and tv shows like the Time Travelers Wife. Where they can travel alone without help. It never set very right with me. (I don't know why- Maybe I was a traveler in another life)

This book again is about Time Travel but also toward the end it turns into a love trio. I think that could have been skipped all together. With the connection that Em and Michael have trying to add another person to that love is just plain stupid if you ask me. I understand why it was added. But it could have been ended before the next book. It added an extra element that it just didn't need.
