Shelf Candy Saturday #1

I've seen a few of the blogs I follow doing this post, and it sounded like a fun idea, so this week I'm joining in for the first time.  This event is hosted by Five Alarm Books

For my first week I've chosen the cover to the Soul Screamers Volume 1 compilation book by Rachel Vincent:

I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but it doesn't hurt to help me pick the book up and look at it.  When I saw this cover I had to pick it up.  Then I remembered I'd heard some good reviews of the Soul Screamers series.  I just love the way the dress spreads out and all the different layers.  I own a copy of the first book in the series, My Soul to Take,  but I'm really tempted to buy this because of the beautiful cover, as well as it has the 0.5 novella in this series:  My Soul to Lose
