Top Ten Favorite Book Covers of Books I’ve ReadI’m a total cover snob, and I’m not at all ashamed to say that is often one of the main drivers that will make me pick up a book. And obviously that either has good or bad consequences.
1. Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
Haaaa, bet you didn’t see this one coming, huh? Stormdancer has the tendency to pop up at the top of all my TTT lists, but the cover. Unf. I love it. The colors, the typography… Closely matches the awesomeness inside.
2. Illuminate by Aimee Agresti
I. Freaking. Love. This. Cover. Isn’t it just amazing? Apparently I often fall for the girl in a dress cover, but this is by far my favorite. The beautiful image offset by that GORGEOUS typography… Wow. The book itself wasn’t that amazing, but I will forever love the cover.
3. Pivot Point by Kasie West
The more I look at it the more I love this cover. And the book in general. I do kind of feel like a typical girl though, I mean, look at me, I’m attracted to shiny things.
4. Ink by Amanda Sun
Technically I’m cheating as I’m still reading this right now but I couldn’t help myself. I just love this cover so much. I love everything about it: the colors, the style, the typography…
5. Everneath by Brodi Ashton
It was mostly the cover that attracted me to Everneath. Of course, then I found out it was about the Persephone myth and I was completely sold. But still one of the most beautiful covers ever. That smokey effect is just amazing.
6. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
I completely adore this cover! It’s so not typical but beautiful. I especially love the typography and the color scheme. It just works. And the book itself is really cute too.
7. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
I’m not sure Incarnate is a book I would readily recommend, but that cover is absolutely incredible. What a work of art, such pretty colors. I don’t mind having that on my shelf.
8. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
This series is awesome, awesome, awesome and has some of the best covers in YA. Yeah, I’m definitely a sucker for the girl in a pretty dress cover. But you know what? I REGRET NOTHING.
9. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
In spite of all the disappointment I have for this series, the cover is still incredible, and one of the prettiest ever. I’m a sucker for sparklies.
10. Angelfall by Susan Ee
If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know I’m completely obsessed with this book and the cover is really pretty too. Considering it’s an indie, that’s even more impressive. I love it!
So… what are your favorite book covers? Do we have any in common?
