Cover Lust: Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger

Cover Lust is something that I do every week where I feature a book cover that I absolutely love!

Etiquette & Espionage (Finishing School, #1)
Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is the bane of her mother's existence. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper etiquette at tea--and god forbid anyone see her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. She enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

But little do Sophronia or her mother know that this is a school where ingenious young girls learn to finish, all right--but it's a different kind of finishing. Mademoiselle Geraldine's certainly trains young ladies in the finer arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but also in the other kinds of finishing: the fine arts of death, diversion, deceit, espionage, and the modern weaponries. Sophronia and her friends are going to have a rousing first year at school.

 Why did I pick this cover? 
Yes, I like the pink, but I really like how the background is in color, but the girl is in black and white. She also looks like she's about to stand someone with those scissors! My only issue is that the girl looks older than the main character, who is 14.

What are your thoughts? Tell me in the comments!

  1. I do love these covers even though the character does look quite a bit older than 14... :)
