Merry Christmas! PLUS Top Ten Week, Day 2: Best Covers of 2012!


Top Ten of 2012 is a feature hosted by Two Chicks on BooksFiktshun, A Life Bound by Books, Confessions of a Bookaholic and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads.

For day two of the Top 10 week the topic is The Best Book Covers of 2012. Since there are just SO many, I've decided to only use the covers of books I've read (which I think the hosts are hoping we do anyway). :) My choices for today are:


I just adore this dress! Ohmygosh, it's so beautiful! I also love the colours and the way reflections are used in the background! :)

Again, another beautiful dress with a gorgeous red colour! I also like the symbolism used on it - you sort-of have to have read the book to fully understand it. ;)
 
I absolutely adore the background on this one. The moon and the ocean are gorgeous and it easily catches the eye! :D
 
All the different edition covers for this book are all beautiful but the one I've used up there is the edition I own. The colours are really subtle and complement each other which I like! ^.^
 
I know some people aren't actually fond of this cover but I really quite like it. You can tell the mood of the novel by the colours and texture and I really like the way her eyes stand out and contrast. >.<
 
Probably not the best cover out of the trilogy but still effective in its simplicity. Again, there is symbolism used (the red colour for the red pill... if you've read the book you'll get what I mean)! :]
 
Absolutely love this cover! The font and colours of the title are pwetty and the colour of the grass sets everything off perfectly! ^.^
 
Another lovely cover! Love the city backdrop with the almost magical feel to it and the way the girl's hair graduates into something else! (:
 
Loving the peacock feathers on this one! Peacock feathers are just beautiful! Plus the gorgeous pink-tinted petals and perfectly formatted title? Love! :]
 
 I actually prefer the purple edition to the one above but this one is my edition and still pretty nice! I admire the way the model's hair has morphed into crows at the back and the bold yellow backdrop! :D

Other honourable mentions are What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang (UK edition) and The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke!
 
What are your favourite 2012 covers? :)
 
 Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo

PS: Merry Christmas, bookworms! I hope you got everything you wished for (I got some amazing looking books that've been on my wishlist forever - I'll be having a special Christmas Edition Showcase Sunday!) and you have a great time with family and friends!

  1. I'm a US citizen, so a lot of these covers look so foreign to me, mostly just The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight. I think Everneath and The Selection are definite winners this year! Great choices! :)

  5. These are such gorgeous covers! I love The Selection's cover, that girl's dress is completely drool worthy. I want a dress like that! And same goes for Everneath. Although, I like how it's more than just a girl in a pretty dress, since it symbolizes something important in the book. And Mystic City's cover is so fantastic as well. I love the whimsical and enchanted feel it gives off, with the pretty background and the girl's hair, I totally agree with you on that one. It gives of a majorly fantasy type feel (even though it's dystopian!).

    Fantastic picks Rachel! All of these covers are totally drool worthy. ;)
