My Favorite Book Covers

Today I decided I wanted to write a post about something a bit different. Book covers. It’s no secret that I have a weakness for beautiful covers and I sometimes want to read a book just because of that. But are the books as good as their covers? Let’s see…

Round Midnight was good, although I didn’t love it. The same thing I can say about The Room By The Lake  and Doll Baby. The Girls was a weird one and I’ve found myself liking it  less and less and time passed. White Nights in Split Town City is probably one of my favorite covers ever, but the book was a bit too weird for me. The House At The Edge of the Night was a beautiful book and I loved Darktown and The Gilded Years, but my favorites are Arrowood, A Twist in Time, and, of course, Homegoing.


What are some of your favorite covers? Do you also fall in love at first sight?

In a past life, I was probably a tortured police detective with a dark and traumatic past. Right now, however, I'm just a twenty-something bookworm who loves listening to old songs and watching 90s movies. I enjoy mystery and crime, southern coming of age stories and historical fiction set in the last century.

  1. These are all gorgeous. The Girls was so creative. I like Homegoing too especially given what you told me about the family tree, it sort of captures that.

    Do you remember the one for A Mother’s Confession, not necessarily a beautiful cover but definitely a memorable one especially given what we discovered after reading the book 🙂


  2. I like the cover of A Twist in Time most! I do love a nice cover and I would definitely cover-buy even if I’m not a 100% convinced about the blurb. I’ve noticed I don’t really like covers that really show the heads of people, I like to imagine them entirely :-). Some of the most beautiful covers I find in fantasy though, they often have lovely colours and very very attractive (can’t think of a title now but I’ve seen plenty).


      1. I’ve been staring and thinking for 10 minutes now, and I just don’t really have any favorites covers I can name right away.. I think I’m most proud of my Final Girls copy but that’s because it has pink edges (not really a cover) and that makes it the most special book I have. Also the fact that it’s pink BUT a thriller is kind of awesome 🙂


  3. Great Idea for a post. I really like The Girls, too. A few I liked from this year were Home Fire, A Separation and White Fur. It’s funny that of those four books I only really loved one of them…White Fur.
