This week’s Top Ten is Top Ten Favorite Book Covers Of Books I’ve Read. I haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday in a really long time, and since I often have cover lust, this is a great topic for me. That said, I had a few favorites come to mind immediately, and I went through my Goodreads shelves to find the others. I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few favorites, but I usually pick off the top of my head.
01: INCARNATE by Jodi Meadows
I knew I was going to pick INCARNATE right away. I’ve loved this cover since the first time I saw it. I could stare at it all day, and it’s even better that the pretty cover matches the great story.
02: ASUNDER by Jodi Meadows
Again, instant cover love. I can’t quit looking at it. I can’t wait to see the cover for Newsoul #3, since I’m sure it’s going to be just as fantastic as the ones for INCARNATE and ASUNDER.
03: INNOCENT DARKNESS by Suzanne Lazear
There’s just something I really like about the girl/model on this cover. Might be the hair color, since I’ve had mine almost that exact same color. It’s also just how I imagine Noli, the main character, looks.
04: STORMDANCER by Jay Kristoff
Another case of instant cover lust. Usually I like UK covers more than US, but not in this case! The US cover for STORMDANCER is stare-worthy.
05: DANCE OF SHADOWS by Yelena Black
I’ll admit, I didn’t like the book, but I still like the cover.
06: THE DARK WIFE by Sarah Diemer
I like how simple this is. Everything about it, from the title font to the apple to the woman matches the style of the story, a retelling of the ancient Greek Persephone and Hades myth.
07: KUSHIEL’S CHOSEN by Jacqueline Carey
The Kushiel’s Legacy series is one of favorite fantasy series of all time. I picked this cover because it shows off Phedre’s marque.
08: ASH by Malinda Lo
I think the cover was one of the reasons ASH originally caught my eye. The girl on the cover looks so alone, and in the story, Ash IS alone. At first. ASH has since became a favorite book of mine, and Malinda Lo one of my favorite authors.
09: ADAPTATION by Malinda Lo
I’m cheating a little because I haven’t yet read ADAPTATION (sadface), but I still like this cover. I also wanted to put a green one on my list.
10: SHADOW AND BONE by Leigh Bardugo
The cover for this book is different than a lot of what’s on the market right now. There are no models or pretty dresses, and that’s just the way I like it (even though I can be swayed by one of those every so often). Instead the cover perfectly represents what’s in the book, showing off the Russian influences.
