Top 10 Books of 2012 Day 2- Best Book Covers and a Giveaway!



Merry Christmas!!!!!!!Today’s topic is Best Book Covers of 2012 (MUST be a book released in 2012. Would be best if it's a book you've READ in 2012, but it's not required) and it’s become pretty apparent that this was the year of the cover with a girl in a pretty dress on it lol and while I liked most of those covers only a few made my list.

And make sure to stop by my co-hosts sites Fiktshun, Confessions of a Bookaholic, A Life Bound By Books, and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads for their lists! Oh and make sure to sign up with the linky to share your lists! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a box of ARC’S including Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi Spellcaster by Claudia Gray, Silence in the Shadows by Courtney Allison Moulton, and more! Today’s giveaway is hosted by ME US only! 

Best Book Covers of 2012

1. Incarnate Jodi Meadows. I loved the butterfly and I thought this was absolutely breathtaking!

2. Embers & Echoes by Karsten Knight. I loved the simplicity of the cover and it's really beautiful!

3. Defiance by CJ Redwine. Not a girl in a dress! I loved the forest above and the castle illusion below and the redhead heroine stands out so well!


4. Everneath by Brodi Ashton. K I said there were a few and this is one of my favorites! I love the smoke at the bottom!

5. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi.Loved this book and I loved this cover! The lightening and the blues were just so pretty!

6. Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey. I thought this was a smart cover with a girl in a dress. I love how she's levitating above the water.

7. Masque of The Red Death by Bethany Griffin. The cover artist who did this one got it all right! I loved the MC didn't have a face it was blocked by the parasol. And I'm a huge fan of reds and greys!

8. The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa. I just saw the cover remake for this series and I'm pretty mad. I loved this original and thought it fit the series so well. I loved that the MC was crying a tear of blood since she is a vampire.

9. Gravity by Melissa West. This cover is brill and I'm not just saying that because I work at Entangled. It was another simplistic one but it just said soooo much!

10. Luminosity by Stephanie Thomas. If you've read the book; which I hope you all will. This cover is a perfect fit! I love the darker covers and this definitely fits Stephanie's dark story!

Did any of my favorites make your list? Fill out the linky and let me know! And good luck with the giveaway!

  30. I was very close to putting Immortal Rules on my list because it does represent the book extremely well!!! Great call on putting it on your list. I'm curious now what the paperback cover/redone cover looks like.

    My favorite cover is still Splintered, even though it's next year's release ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. My favorite cover for a book is Splintered by A.G. Howard, even though it won't be coming out until next year. It is still so amazingly beautiful, with the dark green's, the subtle lightness around her face, and the whimsy of a dark and alluring Wonderland.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love the cover of Defiance. That red hair against the black clothes is gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I really love the Masque of the Red Death cover!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. My absolute favorite cover of 2012 was the cover for the re-release of Singing the Dogstar Blues by Alison Goodman. But if re-released books don't count, then my favorite would be the cover for Cinder by Marissa Meyer.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love, love, LOVE the cover for Pure by Julianna Baggott!! I can't stop staring at it. Alice in Zombieland comes in close second, that egg-blue color dress is so pwetty =D

  55. My absolute favorite cover of 2012 is STORMDANCER by Jay Kristoff. You really get a feel for the world and the way the lotus is killing the world and the plants and the people and animals. Grey and Red skies. And, the picture of Yukiko and her griffon, Buruu are amazingly rendered. I also liked the lotus petals overlaid in the background. Such an amazing cover, and the book had me gasping to the VERY. LAST. PAGE. It's definitely in my top 3 books of 2012. I liked several of your picks, too. UtNS is one of my faves, too.
