Top Ten Best Book Covers of 2012



Today is day two of my most favourite week of the book blogging community- the Top Ten lists of 2012! This year's Top Ten of 2012 is hosted by Lisa from A Life Bound By Books, Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic, Jaime from Two Chicks on Books, Mindy from Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, and Rachel from Fiktshun!

Admittedly I had a lot of trouble coming up with what I consider to be the Top Ten Book Covers of 2012 (for some reason I can't think of a single cover that has really BLOWN me away, unlike in previous years)- therefore I decided to change things up a bit and make today's topic The Top Ten Book Covers of Books I've Read in 2012.

*In no particular order*

1. "Easy" by Tammara Webber: If anyone knows this cover model or a guy like him feel free to send him my way!

2. "Fated" by Alyson Noel: While I wasn't an uber fan of this book I will keep it on my shelf solely for the cover.

3. "Illuminate" by Aimee Agresti: I am a sucker for anything fallen angel related, therefore this is right up my alley!

4. "The Immortal Rules" by Julie Kagawa: I don't know what it is about this cover, but I just really like it. I'm sad to see that it has had a cover update.

5. "The Pledge" by Kimberly Derting: Two words. Lady Gaga-ish. That is all.

6. "The Friday Society" by Adrienne Kress: This is perhaps the most applicable cover I have ever seen before. Aside from that I love how fun and lighthearted it is!

7. "Angelfall" by Susan Ee: See comment for book 3. I legitimately want a gigantic poster of this cover.  Oh, hell. Maybe even a tattoo. 

8. "Defiance" by C.J. Redwine: It was almost entirely the cover of this book that convinced me to request it to review. This cover is full of WIN. 

9. "Revived" by Cat Patrick: In all honesty I have little to no idea how this cover relates to the book, but I really don't care! I just really love the seafoam-ish colour and the colour variations. 

10. "The Diviners" by Libba Bray: I love that this cover is quite like anything else in the world of YA.

  1. I think The Diviners is one of my favourite covers of the year too. :) I prefer covers that have graphics/illustrations on them over people (though some of those are gorgeous too).

    As for The Immortal Rules, I think there is a cover redesign because there was a lot of outcry over the whitewashing; with the MC of the book being Asian, it's confusing why they would feature a Caucasian model on the cover.

  2. Angelfall is very simple and pretty, Friday society is very nice as well, there were so many 'nice' covers but none that really stood out that ive read this year.

  5. Fated is definitely memorable based on that cover. And I feel so dumb but I don't think I ever noticed the angel wing shadow on the Illuminate cover before!! I was too busy focused on the pretty title treatment. =b

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I really appreciate it!

Though I appreciate awards I have decided to make my blog an "award-free zone". Unfortunately I do not have the time to hold up my end of award-giving. But again, I appreciate you thinking of me!
