Today's Topic: Top 10 favorite covers of books I've read
 
That Time I Joined the CircusThe Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)Splintered (Splintered, #1)The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers (The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers, #1)
I love the lighting of this book. The circus looks so warm and inviting. It's glowing. This isn't the best book, but I adore this cover.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Underwater covers have become quite popular of the last couple of years. I remember drooling over this cover for months before I read the book. Again, not my favorite story, but I do love this cover.
Splintered by A.G. Howard
Green is my favorite color and this shade is just so vibrant. I love the vines, flowers, and insects that are framing the girl. This cover really portrays the dark whimsey of Howard's Wonderland.
Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers by Lynn Weingarten
Just pretty. And the book was actually both better and different from what I was expecting.
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
I'll be honest. I didn't love this one. I wanted it to be so much scarier than it was. And I find the idea of ghost-human love ridiculous, but I do love this cover.
Mind Games by Kiersten White
This book has been pretty polarizing on Goodreads and in the blogsphere, but I loved this twisty YA about sister assassins.
Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst
I love a cover with a sense of humor.
Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza
Another cover I obsessed over only to be disappointed by what was inside.
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
I'm currently reading this one. I really like it so far. I'm a sucker for cover that have stars or some other galactic focus.
The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood
This is easily one of my favorite books of all times. It is pure genius. And that cover is cool and creepy. I love everything about this novel.

Man, there are so many cool, pretty, crazy covers out there. As I was surfing my books on Goodreads, I found all kinds of pretty covers of books I've eyed up for forever, but have never picked up. So I'm going to cheat and add one more line of pretty covers. These are just a few of my favorite covers of books I still need to read.

Hereafter (Hereafter, #1)Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)The Peculiar (The Peculiar, #1)The Selection (The Selection, #1)

I could do this all day, but I'm going to stop now. So much cover love. I can't wait to see what you all have chosen this week.

So what are your favorite covers? Link me up!

  8. The covers for Splintered & Mind Games are so pretty, but I haven't read them yet... soon though!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I agree with you if I had a freedom to pick from my tbr my list would be even prettier. I would add The Selection and Clockwork princess too. I love all your picks from your read list too. That time I joined the circus - love the colors. And I somehow skipped Mila 2.0 although I first spotted that book because of awesome cover...

  13. Yessssssss!!!! Splintered. I want to read that SO bad but I just haven't bought it yet. I think I went to B&N and they didn't have any, so I got something else. (obviously I can't leave without buying at least one book! Pshh) The second book cover is simply smashing as well! Great picks. READ HEREAFTER! Great book!!

  17. Amazing list! I can't get over how pretty the Clockwork Princess cover is! I would have put that one on my list if I'd read it, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm with you on Anna Dressed in Blood. Loved the cover, but not the book all that much. The Robber Bride is fantastic (yup, I'm an Atwood fan). This is a terrific list! I had a hard time stopping at 10 too...

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    I love the covers for That Time I Joined the Circus & For Darkness Shows the Stars, they're just gorgeous! I need to read them.

  23. Nice picks! The cover for hereafter looks great.

    ReplyDelete
  24. So many gorgeous covers. Mara Dyer, Mind Games and For Darkness Shows the Stars almost made it onto my list too, and Splintered definitely would have if I had read the book.

    ReplyDelete
  25. These covers are all so great! I think my favorite is Hereafter, but I haven't read that one yet either, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The cover for Splintered is STUNNING. I wish I'd seen it around more places. I also love the one for For Darkness Shows the Stars, which I keep on seeing people review positively. Thanks for posting.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the Mara Dyer and Mila 2.0 covers...but I haven't read them yet, so I couldn't put them on my list!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love your choices! The covers are all so intricate! Mind Games and The Robber Bride are definitely two of my favorites! Great choices!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great picks! I love Splintered cover.
    Thanks for stopping by My Top 10 Tuesday

  30. I'm a sucker for covers with stars on them, too. :) I have For Darkness Shows the Stars on my shelf (bought it on a rec, plus THAT COVER IS GORGEOUS) but I still haven't gotten to it yet. Guess I'd better hurry since I have the companion novel for review. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. You have a beautiful list. I wanted to put Splintered and Mila 2.0 on my list so bad but I haven't read them yet! Mind Games and Anna Dressed in Blood have really cool covers too! I also added Mara Dyer to my list-though I, too, was disappointed by the book I loved the cover.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. The cover for That Time I Joined the Circus makes me want to actually join a circus. It's so beautiful! I think I won this in a giveaway, so hopefully I'll be able to read it soon :D

    ReplyDelete
  33. 'The Unbecoming' and 'For Darkness' I LOVE. This is a very pretty list :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have Mara Dyer on my list too. I really want to read Splintered. I like that she looks a little crazy on that cover. For Darkness Shows the Stars and Anna Dressed in Blood are two others I've read, and I like both their covers. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Anna Dressed in Blood almost made my list, and I completely forgot about For Darkness Shows the Stars! (Sad, since I just finished it on Sunday). Great covers!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier. I haven't actually read any of your top 10. But most of them are on my TBR list. Great choices...especially Anna and Mara Dyer.

  37. I love covers that involve pretty dressed and glamour. Clockwork Princess has a fabulous cover (although I haven't read the series). I thought long and hard about adding Anna to my list, but I could only chose ten.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The only one of these books I've read is Splintered, but I love all the covers you picked. They're all so dynamic! Great choices!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Splintered has such a fabulous cover! Great picks :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love Splintered's cover -- so vibrant! Gah, so many covers, so little time :)

    Thanks for checking out my list earlier -- I'm finally getting the chance to see what other people selected. Better late than never :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Drink Slay Love looks interesting. Great choices. Thanks for stopping by my TTT :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Awww I'm sad to hear that That Time I Joined the Circus wasn't a hit, but I also love the cover. And Anna Dressed in Blood does have a cool cover. If you're not big into ghost-human love, you may want to check out The Mediator series by Meg Cabot. That will change your mind. :P It's a fun series. And the cover for The Robber Bride is so intriguing. I need to read some Margaret Atwood. Especially since you say it's a genius book. Great list, Natalie!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love your picks. While I didn't really like Secret Sistrhood OHB I love that cover too and completely forgot about it. Nice to see we have a bunch of the same picks! I also love Mila but haven't read it yet. Need to get on that lol

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wow, I love just about every cover on this list. Goodness, this list is so awesome. Kudos!

    ReplyDelete
  45. The cover for Splintered is amazing!Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  46. You chose some amazing covers! The cover for Mara Dyer is one of my all time favorites. I particularly love Mind Games and For Darkness Shows the Stars. Great list :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Great picks! Seven of those probably would have made my own list if I'd already read them XD

    Thanks for dropping by my Top Ten Tuesday post! :D

  48. Yay for Splintered <3 that book was just beautiful all the way through - they did such a good job with it! The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer seemed to be a popular choice and I can see why :D Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers is so cool with all the stars! And that Drink, Slay, Love cover would definitely make me pick it up off the shelves. Great list! And thanks for stopping by my top ten :D

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow, they are my favorite too though I haven't read most them. We picked the same covers too like TUoMD and Clockwork Princess. Great picks!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Those are all gorgeous covers! I haven't heard of any of those books, but the covers definitely make me want to check them out. Although I agree that it's disappointing when the cover looks awesome, but the book ends up being only so-so. Oh well. If the cover doesn't draw you in, then it's not doing its job!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
