Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish and this week i’ll be listing my favourite covers! This week is a great one because the topic can be any one I missed in the past or want to go over again and since I only just started taking part in this feature, there are quite a few I would love to do.
To begin, my number 1 favourite cover of all time is probably A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray It is gothic and perfectly captures the essence of the book. I absolutely love this one and always will.
Number 2: the upcoming release by Page Morgan, The Beautiful and the Cursed Holy crap I cannot even speak of my love for this cover properly. The colours, the dramatic feel and the eeriness all appeal to me like crazy. And I haven’t even read the book yet.
3. The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan. It’s not my favourite book in the series but this cover sums up the book so perfectly, draws on an epic scene and showcases one of my favourite characters of all time. And blue is my favourite colour.
4. Defiance by C.J Redwine. This cover has so many elements to it without crowding the cover. The vividness of Rachel’s hair, the subtlety of the walled city of Baalboden and the creepy forest in the background work flawlessly.
5. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. The bright blue of the feather mask that ties in the fact that Karou has blue hair along with the mystery of the face are so brilliantly fitting to the story that it’s impossible not to love it.
6. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. This series is one of my all time favourites and this cover was the best of any she has written. It’s dramatic and encompasses the series perfectly.
7. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. The dramatic feel and mystery of this cover are perfect for this book. I love the colours and the simplicity.
8. Fallen by Lauren Kate. This cover is so eerie and gothic that it puts the reader in the perfect frame of mind for the story and setting.
9. Divergent by Veronica Roth. I love the simplicity of the cover and how well it ties into the actual storyline. It has significance with the faction symbol and the Chicago skyline.
10. And another Libba Bray, The Sweet Far Thing. These covers are honestly just so beautiful. The fiery red hair, the delicacy of the corset and the mystery of not fully being able to see her face.
I feel like I could go on and on with this topic because there are just so many covers that I adore. What are some of your favourites?
