Top Ten Favorite Book Covers of Books I've Read

This is based entirely on cover and has nothing do with my feelings for what's inside the paged. And again, ten is not my most favorite number in the world. Ten is so... binding. Limited. When provided a choice between option A and option B, I will invariably choose C-- all of the above. Or D, which is something else entirely. So when I hear the word ten, I just think let's heap the pretty on the people and be done with it. So, without further ado: a smorgasbord of pretty!

    1. It's, like, the most classic of classics. It puts other classics to shame with it's classicness.

  6. For Darkness Shows the Stars and The Selection are on my list too, and I think the covers for Matched and Scarlet are so cool! I love the green in Matched and the cape in Scarlet! :)

    1. Those eyeball covers are so amazing, aren't they? It's like they see into your SOUL.

  10. Unravel Me, Unspoken, and The Night Circus are all on my list as well! So gorgeous. I almost included Insomnia but I haven't technically finished reading it yet - plus the computer screen just doesn't do it justice - the shininess of the shattering glass on the actual book is SO cool. Awesome list!!

    1. I haven't seen INSOMNIA in person yet! I only read it as an e-ARC! But I'll be getting a finished copy soon. Can't WAIT to see the prettiness in person!

  11. So many great covers! And lots of them are sitting on my TBR list. I'm seeing a lot of For Darkness Shows the Stars and The Selection, though I haven't read either yet. High five for Shadow & Bone! I adore that cover, and the sequel looks even better (both the cover and book overall).

    1. I loved For Darkness Shows the Stars and honestly hated The Selection, but you may not! I love the cover, though. And SIEGE AND STORM!!! That book is AMAZING. I've read it, so I can attest to that. I also like the cover even better than S&B and am wondering why I didn't put it here instead!

  16. Shadow and Bone, Unspoken and Paper Valentine are like paper cutouts, and look so gothic, of sorts :) Plus, I think it's because of the red and black, but Masque of the Red Death makes me think of Anna Dressed in Blood.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh for the love of sparkly book covers, I love this post! They are all so PRETTY! Seriously, I think I just stared at all those covers for a whole 10 minutes, probably more :P

    I love every single cover on here, enough said! So pretty *cries of happiness*

    For Darkness Shows the Stars and The Archived are so beaauuutttiifffuuulll! :')

  18. Stormdancer, YES! And that cover of Unspoken is one of my favorite covers ever and I am so sad they decided to do a redesign. BAD, BAD publishers.

    ReplyDelete
  19. This post was too much for me. ALL THE PRETTY *flails*

    I looooove the covers for Crewel, For Darkness Shows the Stars, The Archived, Shadow and Bone, Glitch... all of the above!

  26. Masque of the Red Death was almost on my list as well, but was cut in favor of others. You have such stunning selections here, so much color.

    The Night Circus is on my list as well. I love the cover!

  31. I'm so sad that they redid the cover for Unspoken! I thought that cover was GORGEOUS. Love the cover for Paper Valentine!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great choices. I almost chose Matched as well, but I wanted to limit my selection of "pretty dress" covers somewhat. Loved the cover for The Selection! Crewel was another one that was so-close to being on my top 10.

    ReplyDelete
  33. So... much... pretty... *falls down in pretty coma*

  34. Great choices! A bunch of these are favorites of mine that didn't make my list.

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  35. So many great covers here. I'm not even going to pick them out because I would be naming off a good portion of the list. asfdbfgnh

  36. For Darkness Shows.. is such a pretty cover!!! I love the colors and her dress and everything about it. And Jackson Pearce's stories always have neat covers too. Great picks!

  37. SO MANY PRETTY COVERS!! I think my favorite is the Unravel Me, the covers on those books are so gorgeous 😊. Great list!
