Top Ten Best Covers of 2012
Never judge a book by its cover, but a good one never hurts. And man, the cover designers at pretty much every publisher has done an amazing job this year! But let's look at the best of the best!
The Selection by Kiera Cass
The icy colors on this are lovely. And yes, I'm a guy and I don't mind the frilly dress.
Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin
An amazing Gothic cover design. Love the reds and blacks.
Defiance by C.J. Redwine
This is a book I have yet to read. That doesn't mean this cover isn't amazingly done with the forest in the background and the village in the foreground.
Dark Companion by Marta Acosta
Another one I'm yet to read, but the the girl walking into the woods is hauntingly beautiful.
Darkness Before Dawn by J.A. London
I love the use of black on white with this one!
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
Such an awesomely designed cover. I love the shape Alice is sitting inside.
Reached by Ally Condie
This cover matches the theme of this book perfectly.
Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
I love the butterfly wings! So creative!
Once by Anna Carey
The purple in this cover is simply gorgeous. And I love how the tunnel.
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
I know that Penguin has since redesigned this cover, but screw it. This cover was perfect and I love it this way.
