It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish!
This week’s topic IS (Survey says!): Top Ten Favorite Book Covers Of Books I’ve Read
TOP TEN FAVORITE BOOK COVERS
Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill: From looking at the book’s dust jacket, I found out that this cover was created from stock images (which probably explains why “Julia” is in heels and a dress) but I just love the colors and they’ve always caught my eye!
Crewel by Gennifer Albin: How gorgeous is this cover? I guess I’m a sucker for rainbow patterns and I’ve always loved that abstract look which is clearly going on here… Didn’t know there was a face on the cover for quite some time which kind of ruined it for me a little (and I seriously can’t un-see it so I don’t know how I missed it originally), but I still can’t get over the colors.
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson: I just love the Tiger Lily on this cover.
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo: Love the castle, love the antlers and that I actually get the Russian vibe from the cover!
The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater: It wasn’t until I actually owned a copy of the book that I fell in love with the cover. I never realized before that you can see all the brush strokes of the raven as if someone actually hand painted each cover. Very cool.
Mind Games by Kiersten White: As disappointed as I was with the book, I still love this cover. The bright colors and mosaic photos are lovely.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein: After reading this book and knowing what part this image comes from, THIS COVER JUST KILLS ME. My heart honestly hurts each time I see it.
Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black: Another book I was a little disappointed in, but I still think this cover is brilliantly gorgeous! Too bad the book didn’t quite live up to its cover.
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood: I love this cover for Born Wicked and was actually really disappointed with the redesign for the paperback! This cover is beautiful and I totally feel like I’m in the time period. Also, the position of the cover model… Her eyes haunt me.
The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse: How do people even come up with this!? I loved this cover when I first saw it. Incredibly creative and fits the story so well!
Well, that’s it for this week! Which of these covers catch your eye? Do we share any favorites?
