It's all about the COVERS! (Well, not completely)

We love them...

Or we hate them...

For me, and I know for many others, a great cover will determine whether a person will read a book or not. I wanted to share a few of my FAVORITE covers out there. All these book are on my TBR but I am DYING to get my hands on.

Cover 1 - A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

I read an interview on the Epic Reads blog (link below) with the lead artist, Alison Klapthor, on the cover design for this book. Marguerite Caine, the books main character is a painter so the goal was to create something that really did look like a work of art. It's really a gorgeous cover! Read the full interview here:

Cover 2 - Snow Like Ashes - Sarah Raasch

So who doesn't like a good fantasy, especially one with an awesome cover like this! We all know that a huge reason for the popularity of this book is the cover! I just won an ebook of this and plan to read it soon and CANNOT wait. There is so much talk, constantly, on how great this book is, so I do know that it's more than just a pretty cover. Shout out to Jeff Huang who designed this cover! Follow him on Twitter @thefifthorder

Cover 3 - Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

This was book-love at first sight! EVERYONE loves this cover. It's... just... amazing. I really don't know too much about the book, but who cares?! The cover tells me it's AWESOME!

Cover 4 - This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman

I really enjoyed These Broken Stars. In fact, Tarver is one of my favorite male characters because he isn't the stereotypical guy that I've read over and over and over again. But I am VERY excited about This Shattered World cover because Jubilee is a POC and she's on the cover! There is a HUGE vacuum of African American girls featured on the covers of YA books. This makes me very happy! Add all these books to your Goodreads shelves and buy buy buy!

What are your favorite covers? I'd love to know!
