10 Gorgeous Book Covers

The week Top Ten Tuesday -- hosted by the ladies at The Broke and the Bookish -- is a dreaded freebie. I hate freebies -- I am apparently not clever enough to think of interesting topics on my own! But, alas, I love lists so much that I endeavored to come up with something, so we have: the 10 most beautiful covers of books I've read the past two years.

I absolutely judge books by their covers and I even have a blog feature comparing a book's various versions of cover art (see my most recent post here or click on the "book covers" label in the sidebar). I like lots of color, bright hues, pretty fonts, paintings/drawings/pictures, and good design, and I enjoy covers that have embossing and/or texture. I don't typically like pictures of real people/photographs on my fiction covers. Looking at the covers below, I think it's safe to say I like a good ol' pop of red!

Do you judge books by their covers like I do? What do you prefer when it comes to cover art? Which of the covers below is your favorite?


  1. Both I'll Give You The Sun and Everything Everything are great books! Everyone should read them at least once! Great Top 10!

    My TTT! :)

    Weird Girl and What’s His Name.

  2. Great topic choice! And great covers!!

    My husband really liked Girl with Gun

  4. I do judge books by their cover. An attractive cover is often what will make me take a closer look at a book to see if it is something I might like to read. Conversely, if it's a cover I find unattractive, I might not give the book a second glance (unless someone says it's good). Of the covers you shared, I most like the one for A Sudden Light.

  5. I very much judge books on their covers- and a nice or well designed cover is a great thing. :) Girl Waits With Gun is nice, and I kinda like Everything Everything as well.

  6. Love the cover on Fourth of July Creek - I have never even heard of that book before. I also love the cover of The Curious Beginning. That was such a good book and I can't wait for the next one to come out.

  7. ooo I love these covers! Great choices :) My TTT


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
