Top Ten Favorite Book Covers of Books I've Read
2. Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier - I'm not usually a fan of book covers with just a girl on them, but for some reason, I fell in love with this cover. I think it's the color scheme and how the girl's bathed in golden light. It has an almost ethereal beauty. And the writing was as beautiful as the cover!
3. Long Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough - I love creepy anything, and this cover is definitely goosebump worthy. It has all the prerequisites of a spooky cover: scary looking trees, dark colors, and, if you look at the cover in a larger size, you'll notice there's something hiding behind the tree on the left. I love this cover because I'm weird like that, and it's a great match for such a terrifying read!
4. Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce - I am crazy about this cover, and it's a perfect fit for a Little Red Riding Hood retelling. I love how the one girl's hair blends into the wolf's fur, giving it a more sinister feel. And that red is so bright and eye-catching!
5. Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norell by Susanna Clarke - I'm actually cheating because I have yet to read this book, and I need to get on that. It's been sitting on my bookshelf for too long, and this cover is one of the reasons I bought it. It's so pretty! I love the elegant font style, the winding road, and the surrounding countryside fading to black in a creepy way. Must read this soon!
7. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness - I gush about this series way too much, but I have to say I love the covers - especially the cover for The Knife of Never Letting Go. For some reason, I'm really into covers where the title takes up the most space. And I'm loving the font style and the words scrawled in the background, which goes perfectly with the Noise that is a constant presence throughout the series!
8. Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan - This cover is gorgeous! It definitely has a Gothic feel and a whimsical charm. Sadly, Unspoken is one of those books where I loved the cover, but was disappointed by the story. Oh well. It happens.
9. The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand - Apparently, I have a thing for gates on book covers. Once again, this book has that Gothic, creepy feel I love. The font style is also a winner in my book (pun ;) ). And the story itself did not disappoint.
