Top Ten Tuesday: Book Covers I Love

ttt template (7)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by That Artsy Reader Girl.

I missed the freebie about book covers even though I was really excited for that, so here it is. I really love pretty book covers, and I think this post shows, uh, my Type. (Flowers, snakes, and girls.)

wilder girls by rory power

Like, talk about amazing cover design??? The illustration is incredible, eye-catching, and really makes you consider what the book is about. Font design is nice and simple. 10/10 cover.

star daughter by shveta thakrar

The only thing is I’m still not sure exactly what genre this book is? Is it sci-fi? Fantasy? Contemporary? The cover screams sci-fi, but it’s listed on Edelweiss as contemporary and fantasy? Whatever. It’s still stunning.

girl, serpent, thorn by melissa bashardoust

I love the flowers tangled with the snakes, the symmetry, the colours … it’s gorgeous. Gorgeous.

This is also bevel done right. With shadow. It’s so hard to do bevel right, never mind the drop shadow.

the falling in love montage by ciara smyth

Image result for the falling in love montageThis cover is so good and gay??? The colours are so pretty and I love how it screams that this is a f/f story. I also really love fonts that look handwritten with a bit of opacity, so this is definitely My Style of cover, especially for contemporary rom-coms.

lobizona by romina garber

Image result for lobizona romina garberI really love the stylization of this one and how chaotic the bottom half is. I think it balances really nicely with the upper half. The font is really pretty too; it’s shaky and looks hand-drawn, and the whole cover gives off this kind of spooky feel.

the midnight lie by marie rutkoski

Image result for the midnight lieHas anyone noticed the flowers/snakes trend? I love it. The Midnight Lie takes a different perspective with relatively flat illustration and a variety of fonts, and it absolutely works so well. I also love the subtle leaves in the background of the cover.

with the fire on high by elizabeth acevedo

Image result for elizabeth acevedo with the fire on highThis cover is just so vibrant and alive, and it’s also kind of glowy, if that makes sense?? Like, I love the lighting. I love all the colours in it; there are so many, and it still looks amazing.

Also, have you seen the book? The book has fruits under the cover? It’s great. I love it.
