Five Great Covers

Adele of Persnickety Snark is hosting the FIVE Challenge. Click on the link to learn more about it. Today’s theme is Great Covers. Click here to include a link of your post in the Mr. Linky. Feast your eyes on the loveliness of these covers:

Pegasus by Robin McKinley (my review) – I fell in love with this cover as soon as I saw it. Robin McKinley got lucky with this one – I think it’s perfect for the story with the girl standing in the middle of the field, looking up at the pegasus soaring in the sky.

Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken (my review) – I like the whimsical look of this cover and how it’s suited for a fantasy book.

Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles (my review) – I think this cover is pretty unique, two teenagers leaning out the windows of their vintage cars to kiss in the rain. What’s great about it is this is an actual scene in the book.

Jane by April Lindner (my review) – this one is also in my Five Great Debuts list. Jane’s outfit in the cover suits her personality in the story. I also like how the bright pink contrasts with the gray of the rest of the cover.

Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan (Aussie edition) – I haven’t read this one but I’m really curious since it looks like an appropriate read for the holiday season. I really want the Aussie cover! Too bad it’s out of stock when I asked my friend in Australia to get it for me. I hope it becomes available internationally in the future.

Those are my favorite covers for this year, what are yours?

  1. Love the graphic feel and bold pops of color on the Likly and Dash cover. I’m a fan of the color white too. 🙂 That reminds me that I need to read Infinite Playlist sometime.

    I like this idea for a Five post. Maybe I’ll do one.

    • Holly, it’s beautiful, isn’t it? I really want a copy of that! Too bad it’s only available in Australia. Let me know if you get to read Nick and Norah because I’d like to know what you think o fit. 🙂

      Yes, please do! It’s a fun challenge. I might not be able to do the challenges for the other days though.

  2. Nice choices. Here’s a fun fact about the Rules of Attraction one – the scene was written into the book after Elkeles saw the cover. 🙂 Hadn’t seen this Dash & Lily cover; I like it much better than the US!

    • Really, Natalie? I didn’t know that! So that’s why there’s a scene in the book that matches the cover. I heard that Julie James did the same thing when she saw the cover of Something About You. Covers that match the story are awesome. 🙂

    • I believe they released the cover for Pegasus early this year and I got really excited when I saw it! I hope they have something just as beautiful for the second half of the story.

Comments are like chocolate. :) Maraming salamat / thank you!
