Top Ten Tuesday: Prettiest Covers

March 6, 2012 Meme, Top Ten Tuesday 34

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and Bookish.

Top Ten Favorite Covers (feel free to make it as specific or general as you want — ie: top ten favorite covers of 2012, top ten favorite YA covers, top ten favorite contemporary fiction covers)
I love pretty covers.  I know that it’s wrong but I so often judge a book by the cover.  As I picked through my list on goodreads I realized that most of the pretty covers are YA covers.  General fiction books just tend to have boring covers.

    That’s quite a varied collection of covers. Of all the ones you feature my favourite is Anna Dressed in Blood as I find it mysterious and intriguing.

      Between was an impulse buy but I’m excited to read it. I do have a small issue with the cover up close. It looks like her feet are just in the clouds right? Well up close they clouds don’t look like they covered her feet, her feet just aren’t there. It’s just weird.

    The Vanishing Game has such a cool cover and sounds really good too! So, of the books you have read did you like them?

      I liked all the books. Twilight is my least favorite of the bunch, but it was still good. Deadly Cool and Mara Dyer are my favorites. I think I mentally blocked the books I didn’t like when I was making my list because I know I’ve read bad books with pretty covers but I just can’t think of them.

    I love that version of Looking for Alaska, and the cover for Between is amazing!

    Thanks for stopping by! :)

    That reminds me that I have Cleopatra sitting there and have to start it.
