With Cover Love, I usually show off covers of books that I haven't read yet. So now here's my chance to boast the covers that I have read. Whether they just catch my eye, are pretty, creepy, or just great, here are only ten (or so) covers that I love of books I have read.
These covers always catch my eye. They're simple, but always make me want to reread because they're fantastic retellings and they convey that.
Pretty girls with pretty dresses, I know. But it seems so mysterious and the covers are quite beautiful.
I love all of Robin Benway's covers! Vibrant and fun, they make me happy.
Jennifer E. Smith
I question your romantic side if you don't think This Is What Happy Looks Like's cover doesn't look adorable (even the SPoLaF's cover as well). Besides, I'm always a fan of tastefully done yellow.
The powerful way she walks, the black turning into swooping gray. Why wouldn't I love this cover?
I don't know why anyone wouldn't like this cover. I just don't.
It feels very haunting to me. Considering The Uglies is about plastic surgery and the such, it fits well. I also really like the girl's nails.
Can you say fun?
Mysterious, creepy, alluring. I especially like the birds and the clouds over the font is a nice touch.
She looks tough. It also doesn't hurt that she has an awesome scythe.
And here are some books that are on my shelf ABOUT to be read. That counts, right?
Okay, this one is a library book, but I'm about to read it! The rest are on my shelf, I swear. Anyways, this is so pretty, I can't stop looking at it.
These Broken Stars
I'm such a fan of the color blue, I saw a post about redheads with blue and I really think it works. The dress is gorgeous and, of course, the stars are a really great touch. I can't wait to start this one! It just looks so pretty on my shelf.
The American Heiress
I think this is an adult book, but I don't know for sure. Looks very regal. Simple, yet elegant. I think Downton Abbey.
Okay, I had to limit myself. I went through my bookshelf and then all through my tiny Goodreads shelf. I didn't even want to think about brainstorming or this post would be a million times longer. But to all the artists/publishers/authors/book people out there who have a hand in making book covers: BRAVO!
What are some of your favorite book covers?
