Top 10 Book Covers of 2011


Today's category: Top 10 Book Covers of 2011
This is definitely a subjective topic and there are so many beautiful covers out there...how will I ever choose? I'm not going to lie, I do judge a book by its cover...initially. I usually read books I am drawn to visually before I read others; however, there are times I am disappointed and other times that a story makes me love a cover I didn't love in the beginning.
 
Well, let's start by saying I love these beautiful red and black covers. They are sexy and captivating. 








Die for Me by Amy Plum is captivating. The dress the girl is wearing is described pretty closely in the book and the fact that she is looking over Paris...wow! How freaking romantic.





 





Everneath by Brodi Ashton, I haven't read yet. The cover is phenomenal though. She looks so 
"otherworldly."










 Falling Under by Gwen Hayes is one of my favorite covers ever. The book is sensational as well. I love the red dress on the black roses. Darkly Beautiful.









I just finished The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton and I loved it. Hopefully I will get the review posted soon but doesn't the cover look mysterious?










Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini...well, the blues and grays are the perfect contrast to the beautiful pinkish dress Helen is wearing. Definitely gives you a bit of the "Greek Mythology" feel.









The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin...many won't agree with me but I love this cover and I don't really know why. Perhaps it's the question of what exactly is taking place...is he saving her? Is she drowning? Who really knows but I love it.










Obsidian and Half-Blood are both by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I love Daemon's bright green eyes in Obsidian. Plus, he looks rough and sexy. Yummy. And...he is just as bad as he looks. The green background is unique and not found on many books. 











Half-Blood is amazing...as is Pure and Deity. The covers are ghostly and mysterious. They are elegant and, well, beautiful is really the only word I can think of to do them justice.



Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick is deadly. The Hush, Hush Series has some of my favorite covers ever. Patch is just so...well, Patch. The darkness is perfect for this story. I would not change a thing.












And...last, but certainly not least, is Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare. Her covers are always so intense and this is no exception. I think I like this cover so much because of the way it encompasses so much of the story on a single page.









What do you think? Would you agree or would you recommend another cover? Let me know.
