Top Ten Tuesday: Book Cover Lover

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fly honeys at The Broke and The Bookish.

This week they ask us to take a look at cover trends we like or dislike - or both!
Obviously I went with both.
Obviously obviously.

First, the things I love about book covers.

The font heavy ones:

The subtle ones:
Falling into Place

Anything 8-bit (I mean COME ON!):
The Geek's Guide to Dating

The dark and mysterious ones:
Blackbird (Blackbird Duology, #1)

The ones that are unabashedly nerdalicious and don't give any effs about it:
Insignia (Insignia, #1)

And how about the things I'm not so crazy about with the book covers?

The cover model that doesn't match the character.
Along for the Ride
NO WAY Auden was in a pink dress on a bike ever, ever ever. 

The cut off heads.

The girl in a dress with a boy by her side:
Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy, #1)

The girl walking away from the book with her hair blowing around all cray:

Copycat covers
 Not That Kind of Girl
Same couple. Same idea.
Also the almost kiss on the cover is a big NO.

Do we see eye to eye with any of our cover lovers or cover haters? 
Let me know! 

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.


  1. I always get Ten Things We Did and Not That Kind of Girl mixed up! They're so similar! I really don't like almost-kiss covers either, or kissing covers. They just make me feel uncomfortable, especially when the picture is blown up so much. Just weird.

  2. I think the Geeks Guide to Dating cover is adorable. I also agree on the almost-kiss/kissing covers - they tend to turn me off of a book.
