Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic: Top Ten Favorite Book Covers Of Books I’ve Read.
The Humming Room by Ellen Potter – Illustrations usually never bode well for a cover, but the artist certainly got it right this time. The entire look is just so beautiful.
Graceling by Kristin Cashore – I didn’t care for the book, but I LOVE the cover.
Me, and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews – The cut out look is just fantastic. I love the colors, and it helps set up the entire overall mood of the book. Love it!
Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff – How did I forget this one!? I should be smited. I did love the American cover but….this one just screams “I AM A BADASS.” Once again, beautiful illustration, and if you have not yet peeked at the sequel and the cover, then I command for you to go Google it. Now.
Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu – The overexposed look never fails to amaze me. I am easy to entertain, it seems. The contrasting color is a perfect indicator of the mood for this novel.
Wicked by Gregory Maguire – Not the biggest fan of the storyline, but I LOVE the broadway edition of the cover for this novel. It just looks fantastic.
The Rift Walker by Clay and Susan Griffith – It was the covers that drew me into this series. I love it. I love the steampunk look, I love the couple on the cover, I love the color theme, I love it I love it and I want to have its babies. Forever.
I am America by Stephen Colbert – Shameless admittance that I love it because it has the picture of Future Mr. Heartless. BRB, licking the cover now.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – I love this edition of the books. I will always kick myself for missing out on this cover theme when I saw it 2 years ago in a used bookstore. I am kicking myself now. I am licking a cover of a book and kicking myself. I should YouTube myself one day.
The Blue Cat of Castle Town by Catherine Cate Coblentz – A sadly forgotten Newbery winner. I love the simple and elegant design for this book. It comes across as calming and beautiful.
