The Art of Forgetting by Camille Noe Pagan The Art of Forgetting cover

Camille Noe Pagan's debut novel, The Art of Forgetting, weaves a heart-breaking tale about two women – best friends – who are thrown a cruel twist of fate after Julia is in an accident. Julia, a dancer, suffers from a traumatic brain injury after being hit by a cab, and the brain damage diminishes her memory and causes a change in her personality. The cover shows a ballerina who could be in a stretch, a final bow or in a moment of defeat. Only the story will tell us what the cover shows.

Thanks Stephanie and Laura! And Susan, it was really hard to pick just five! There's so many more that made my list as well :)

sorry I don't agree with you, the best book cover I think is Kitchen's Daughter by Jael McHenry.

One Moment, One Morning looks like Val Frankel's Four of a Kind. Well, actually, Val's looks like Sarah's book, since Val's isn't officially out yet! And I LOOOOVE Camille's book The Art of Forgetting, but I have to say that I almost didn't read it because I'm not a fan of ballet, although the cover is STUNNING! I discussed this with her too. The soft cover is MUCH different -- check it out on amazon. Great round up of some gorgeous covers!

Great choices Samantha! One Moment, One Morning by Sarah Rayner's cover is STUNNING. It makes me want to grab a cup of tea and sit and read it all in one go.
