I can’t say what exactly draws me to a cover. Sometimes it’s that they’re pleasing to the eye – the covers are the only reason I read A Great and Terrible Beauty and Wither. Sometimes it’s the colors, like with The Disenchantments and The Fault in Our Stars. Sometimes I just think the cover is powerful – The Book Thief and Speak are the obvious ones at a glance, but the true power in Jellicoe Road‘s cover isn’t something you’d get unless you’ve read the book, although it is one attractive cover. And sometimes, I really just like colors, like with Through the Ever Night.

What are your favorite book covers? What sorts of things make a book cover catch your eye?

  1. You’ve got some great covers here. SPLINTERED in particular has always stood out to me and I think it’s because of the bold colours. I liked TAKEN a lot for that reason as well. My reasons for liking a cover tend to vary with each cover, so like you, I’m not sure I can actually pin down what it is that grabs my attention across the board.

    1. Taken crossed my mind! As did Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken. I was trying to encompass covers from all across the board, though, which is why they didn’t end up on the list.

  2. Great choices! I love THE DISENCHANTMENT’s cover so much and I’m sad they changed it for the paperback. Boo. JELLICOE’s cover is beautiful in its simplicity, and THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT is beautiful in its featuring of Perry. 😉

    1. They changed The Disenchantments for the paperback? That’s sad-making, because the original cover was so perfect! I guess I’ll just buy it for my Kindle so I won’t have to look at it…
