If you should know, I judge a book by it's cover. (Sorry) I LOVE a book with a good cover, it just catches my eyes, you know? And with 2013 just beginning, you must have added a couple of books that are yet to be released to you TBR pile, right? And you keep checking in on them on GR, and read the reviews.
Publishers, why do you keep doing that to us?
Anyway, if anything 2013 is the year of book covers. I mean seriously, there are some AMAZING book covers out there, but it doesn't necessarily mean that it is a good book.
This isn't a review. It's just me fangirling over some pretty art work. So here are the top 10 book covers of 2013.
#10: The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna
A black, white, and pink mixture is always a winner! Thankfully, I'm not one of the people who mind cover models. (Most of the time) and I like that the model in this cover is vague. While she is very pretty, I don't think she would limit your imagination (the black and white background helps). The blurb sounds pretty good too!
#9 - Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger
Again, a black, white and pink never fails ( Seriously, even if you paint your face black, white and pink you will look good. But don't) The posture and dress of the model is.just.amazing. The book just feels classy, you know?
#8- Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
Although I liked the first book's cover-Cinder- way better, this one is still pretty good. I like how it used the same main colours to focus on a bit of the main character's trademark. A red hood. (The first one was glass shoes, Cinderella's)
#7- Asunder by Jodi Meadows
Okay, not everyone will agree with me on this one, but this book cover is like a rainbow of colours. A good one. Incarnate, the first in the series, had a better cover, but Asunder keeps the same theme and backgroung colours of the first book.
#6- Requiem by Lauren Oliver
Delirium and Pandemonium's cover was so good, I might aswell add it to this list and break the-2013 books only- rule. And now Requiem retains the same awesomeness trail that delirium set. The model is just pretty bad-ass! And she looks angry in this one, so that must keep you wondering what exactly will happen in the book.
#5- Splintered by A.G Howard
Plants, flowers and curly blonde hair never looked so good. This cover was the reason I noticed this book!
#4- The Elite by Kiera Crass
It's like the cover model is saying "look at me in my awesome dress, and weep." Kiera, don't ever fire whoever is designing the cover. (Or that should probably be directed to Kiera's publisher) The guy/girl knows what he's/she's doing! This is one of the most eye-catching covers of 2013! Can you imagine holding a hardcover of this beauty?
This cover has so much going on. The background, and the front model would normally be too much, if the weren't put all together in a beautiful arrangment.
#2- Mind Games by Kiersten White
I can almost picture reading this in a public place and strangers coming up to ask me where I got the book all because of the amazing cover.
#1- Fuse by Julianna Baggot
And the winner is ... Fuse! I LOVE this cover. Gold and black? Yes please! Pure's cover sucked. Big time. But this one here is too good for words to describe.
