I realized I’ve been doing a lot of kind of heavy, think-a-lot kinds of posts. Guess I’m going through one of those phases. So today I’m going to post about something more fun: book covers!
I can’t remember where I read this now, but I recently found an article about how covers are a huge deal for teen readers…more than reviews and all that. Makes sense, right? Cool picture must mean cool book. And you of course want to feel cool if you’re walking around with it.
Here are some of my favorite covers:
I picked this book up 100% because of the cover. Isn’t it to die for?
Unfortunately, it wasn’t a story that stuck with me, but the cover…Love.
The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
They’ve redone the covers for these books to make them less childish, I suppose.
But I’m a sucker for illustrations like this.
The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan
Ok, your turn! What covers do you totally love?
