Top Ten Picks is a weekly meme by Jillian about your top 10 picks! Each week, there will be a different theme and this weeks theme is 'book covers'. So here are my top 10 book covers (in no particular order) ~
1. The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins
I think these books are just so pretty and eye catching. My favourite is the first book, I love that it has Katniss on the cover. In person the HG monogram is raised, so gives the cover a nice feel.
2. Dark Goddess by Sarwat Chadda
This is one of the prettiest covers I've ever seen, and I love how it completely ties in with the story in every way. It also has pretty shiny gel like swirls all over the cover which is a nice extra.
3. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
A falling half-naked angel, need I say more? I also love the fact the background is metallic silver.
4. Memoirs Of A Geisha by Arthur Golden
I love anything that is Geisha related, so this naturally falls into that catagory. Her face is just so pretty, I find this cover almost mesmerising.
5. The Shadow Of The Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
I love the colour, and the almost haunting picture of the shadowed man walking alone through the streets.
6. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
Again, this cover depicts the story so well, plus I just think it's kind of intriguing. When I first saw this cover I couldn't stop wondering why the little girl was stood by a pile of clothes and shoes, obviously when I read the book it became apparant.
7. The Arena (The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins)
I think I was around 14 when I first saw this cover, and the it drew me in instantly. I have a thing for covers with faces on, and the girl mixed with the sepia tone, the great title font and the title all mixed together make a great cover.
8. Fallen by Lauren Kate
Not only do you have the mysterious girl at the front who's covering her face, but you have the kind of creepy blue and black background, the whole thing just intrigues me.
9. Fairytale Of New York by Miranda Dickinson
I'm not a massive fan of chick-lit, and I don't read it that often, but this book cover is just so pretty that I had to have it! With the pink and purples, and the girl on the bridge with her face to the sky, I just think it's lovely.
10. The Death And Life Of Charlie St. Cloud by Ben Sherwood
This cover just seems so care free, two brothers playing and having fun and that reflects the aspect of the book about Charlie and Sam being such close brothers and not being able to let go of each other.
So what are your favourite book covers?
