Top Ten Favorite Book Covers of Books I've Read
Ack! I couldn't narrow it down to 10 books, so you get more!
Creepy Gothic Covers:
I especially like The Space Between because it is so dead on if you read the book.
Pretty Dresses That Have Nothing To Do With the Story:
I want a smoke dress.
Sometimes simple is best. I love these redesigns, especially Lirael.
Covers that Tell a Story:
I see this a lot with Middle Grade books, but I love covers that convey a lot of the story in one picture. I always find myself flipping back to the cover to see how it fits in.
Neat Dystopian Covers:
Dystopians get some of the coolest, badass-iest covers. These three are my favorites. (Perry is looking mighty fine!)
Cool Fantasy Covers:
Fantasy covers either are really visually engaging...or they are overdone. I like Grave Mercy because it gives me a strong sense of the feel of the book. I like Raven Boys because you don't see many painted covers - almost everything is photoshopped or designed on a computer. Shadow and Bone has to be one of my favorite covers of all time. There is just something so mysterious and engaging about it. Lastly, this cover of The Scorpio Races is actually the UK edition. I love the Celtic feel to it because the book has a strong Celtic feel and I think this cover gives the reader that.
