Top 10 of 2013- Day 2 Best Book Covers of 2013 and a Giveaway!


Merry Christmas Eve!!!!!!!Today’s topic is Best Book Covers of 2013 (MUST be a book released in 2013. Would be best if it's a book you've READ in 2013, but it's not required) and this year publishers finally decided to do something other than a girl in a pretty dress (Thank you Publishers!). I did add one pretty dress cover though because I love the color :)

And make sure to stop by my co-hosts sites Fiktshun 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 some awesome prizes below!



Best Book Covers of 2013

1. Asunder Jodi Meadows. Jodi always has the most stunning covers!

2. The Essence by Kimberly Derting. Still haven’t read this series but I love the cover!

3. The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas. I loved the original cover design for this one but I think the people at Harper thought it looked too much like the Mortal Instruments movie poster and also The 10th Kingdom. But this one is just as stunning!

4. Splintered by A.G. Howard. What can I say look at the detail that Nathalia Sullen puts into this one! It’s simply gorgeous!

5. The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd. The cover just screams creepy and I love it!

6. The Elite by Keira Cass. This orange dress is freaking gorgeous! It’s my favorite cover of the whole series!

7. Dance of The Red Death by Bethany Griffin. It’s just as beautiful as the first and I love that it’s purple!

8. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke. Love the cover it’s absolutely stunning and creepy! Too bad the book wasn’t as good as the cover.

9. Ashes on The Waves by Mary Lindsey. Love Mary and her covers but I think this one is my favorite! Her cover artist at Penguin nailed the feel of this story.


10. Pulse by Patrick Carman. Totally DNF’d this book but the cover is gorgeous!

  3. Pulse was originally on my list but I moved it out after I had forgot to add Siege and Storm! I wish I had put These Broken Stars in mine because I love that cover.

  4. Ah! I forgot about some of these when I was making my post! Darn... Oh well. :) LOVE the covers for Splintered (You're right, so much detail!!) and The Burning Sky! So nice to see people getting away from the pretty dress trend, even as I loved a lot of those covers.

  37. I love Asunder and Splintered's covers, they are just amazing and the colors really stand out.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I too loved the original Burning Sky cover. I totally didn't think of the similarities with the TMI poster. :O

    ReplyDelete
  39. There are so much pretty covers! I also love Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and Pulse! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. So pretty! My favorites are The Burning Sky, Splintered, and Elite. The dresses for the Selection series are amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think that 2013 had a lot of creative covers, so of my favorites were Antigoddess,Kinslayer, House of Hades(These cover are always gorgeous),Ink(The Watercolors!), and Clockwork Princess.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love the cover for The Essence, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, and The Burning Sky! Sometimes I think these cover designers can really blow the covers out of the water and just capture the essence of these books.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Aw my comment was eaten. I was just popping in to say Great picks! And we have a few in common. But I totally love the cover for THE ESSENCE and I almost picked the cover for THE ELITE, too!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I so love the cover for The Burning Sky with the flames making a phoenix. All of these are great and eye catching with the different colors that are bright and bold.

    ReplyDelete
  45. All gorgeous covers, we have a few in common. And I forgot about Between the devil and the deep blue sea, it is such a unique and perfect cover..

    ReplyDelete
  46. Beautiful picks :) I chose some of the same but I forgot about The Burning Sky because I haven't read it! It's dramatic and magical.
    And I agree, the purpleness of Dance of the Red Death is a big part of why it's so awesome :) I love Araby's fan on it too.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love the cover of The Burning Sky, it's fantastic and Splintered too!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I really love the cover for These Broken Stars - and the green dress tour was kind of genius, too!

    ReplyDelete
  49. So many pretties! Splintered and Between the Devil were at the top of my list. I do like the Pledge covers, but I still haven't read them! The Burning Sky is beautiful (I love dragons!) but I couldn't get into it =/

    ReplyDelete
  50. Again, you've included books I'm not familiar with, but the covers were stunning. Splintered definitely made my list.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I agree with your list! I love Jodi Meadow's book's covers (even though I've never actually read any of her books) and I love The Selection cover! Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea has such a creepy vibe to it! I don't know if it's one of my favorite covers, since I don't really like how the lettering takes up the entire cover.
