Top 10 Favorite Book Covers:
I know the list is supposed to contain 2012 covers, but I’m going to include my favorite covers from all years. These are in no particular order, but here they are. Enjoy! :)
No Touch Monkey by Ayun Halliday – Come on, how could you not love this cover?! I mean just look at it! The main reason why I bought this book was because of the cover, and I’m so glad I did because the book exceeded my expectations. Check out my review of this book here.
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein - I am extremely biased with this book because it’s one of my favorites. But I do love the simple cover and if you read it, then you will understand how powerful this cover truly is.
Life of Pi by Yann Martel - I could literally stare at this cover for hours. It provokes such wonderment and imagination, and trust me this is just not another “pretty cover” because the book is absolutely AMAZING.
Modoc by Ralph Helfer - This cover brings tears to my eyes. I remember staring at this cover after I finished the book and the words I had just finished reading came flooding back in my mind. The cover isn’t even half as good as the book, but it’s definitely one of my favorite book art.
Tales of a Female Nomad by Rita Golden Gelman - I remember stroking this cover when I first picked this book up, waiting desperately to read it. This cover is so cool. Screw Eat, Pray, Love, this book deserved its own movie.
The Devil’s Teeth by Susan Casey - I asked my mom to get me this book for Christmas based on the cover alone. It’s scary as hell, but also extremely intriguing. The book was great, but I think the cover is just a tad bit better. Check out my review of this here.
Moby-Duck by Donovan Hohn - I haven’t read this book yet, but it’s definitely on my TBR list. And it’s on there for the most part because of the cover. It’s so cool, isn’t it?! Can’t wait to see if the book lives up to the cover.
The cover art are sometimes my favorite part of the book, and it really is something that draws you into the book.
So this is my list, and hope all of you have a Happy Tuesday!
