Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Book Covers

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten Favourite Book Covers of Books I've Read

This one was hard for me because I'm such a cover whore. I made a list of about 20 and then basically had to randomly narrow it down to 10. And these are all ones I've read within the lifespan of my blog - I didn't even touch ones I read pre-blogging because then it would have been impossible. So here are 10 of my many, many favourite book covers of books I've read in the last two years.


1. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson {my review}. This is the UK cover - I love the North American cover as well, but this one is so evocative of the story. All the little bits and pieces that make the story so unique and so special are right there for the reader to see. I've spent a lot of time admiring this cover, and when I finally bought the book just recently (I borrowed the book from the library about two years ago), I purposely got the UK cover. 

2. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick {my review}. This cover is so simple but I love it. It's beautiful and sweet and really fits the story. 

3. Splintered by AG Howard {my review}. I love the colours and the details and the font of the cover. It's all really eye-catching and piques your interest.

4. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson {my review}. I don't really know what to say about this one other than it's simple but beautiful.

5. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard {my review}. I love the girl's dress (and necklace and gloves and hairstyle) and the gear details in the background.

6. Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock {my review}. What can I say, I like pretty dresses. I also love the vine details and the girl's pose - it's fitting to the overall mood of the story.

7. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi {my review}. I love the colours, the way the title's done, and the attitude emanating from the girl.

8. Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood {my review}. I love the vintage feel of this one, plus the girl is gorgeous. I love her dress and the flowers in her hair. I was really bummed when this cover got a mid-series makeover; even though I like the new cover, I was looking forward to seeing how they'd match the next book to this one. Instead they redid this one and made the second book match the new cover. Why must publishers do that?

9. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake {my review}. I love the creepy feel of this one. Why is she covered in blood? What's the deal with the spooky house in the background? Plus I love the little details around the author's name.

10. Venom by Fiona Paul {my review}. I love masquerade masks, and purple's my favourite colour, so this one was a double win. Also, the inside of this book is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen - the pages have designs along the crease and each chapter has a black page with fancy writing and details. It's gorgeous.

  3. My Life Next Door is a book I would really like to read. I love Tiger Lily's cover and I also liked the book. Splintered has a beautiful cover unfortunately I didn't like the book.
