Top 10 Book Covers of 2011:

Exiled by RaShelle Workman

Wahhh...I LOVE the sparkly colours, and the pretty butterflies <3 I remember this immediately caught my attention when I saw it in a blogger friend's IMM post!  

Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsay

Isn't this GORGEOUS?!?! I love covers with girls in dresses no matter how over-done it's becoming! I love how the dress gradually evolves into scattered rose petals <3 

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Oh My Goodness. How can you NOT love this?!? Girl & Guy underwater? This is definitely one to die for!

Anna dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

How spooky does this look? Just looking at it creeps me out; I don't know if I can even finish reading this, considering how scary it is :/ But, still love the cover <3

Darker Still Leanna Renee Hieber

Another girl in a beautiful dress <3 Seriously, I'm a sucker for gorgeous dresses!

Blood Song by Rhiannon Hart

I really like the shiny cover & the sparkly title! Plus, I love how the model's looking back; the cover read suits the book!

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini (US cover)

Love the background, and the dress!! The cover is so much better than the AUS cover of Starcrossed.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Wow.Just.Wow. What's even better than a model in a beautiful dress? A girl in a stunning white dress! Plus, I love the crossed out words on the top!
Remembrance by Michelle Madow 

Oooohh, the alluring golden mask <3 I haven't read the book yet, but from what I've heard, the cover really suits the book!

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Pretty model, breath-taking dress + Purplish cover = Perfect! 

What about you? What were your favourite covers of 2011?


  1. I'm totally swooning on the other side of the computer screen right now. So many gorgeous covers!! I especially love Shattered Souls and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. And... erm... not JUST because I can see Noah's smexy arms. (Why cannot I not have a NOAH SHAW?! *cries*). And Anna's looks so creepy cool, fits the novel perfectly.

    I also loved Wither and Darkest Mercy covers, so gorgeous!! Speaking of pretty, I can't believe I forgot to mention in my last comment, but I love your new design!! <3

  2. Exiled is so gorgeous! Unique and striking ;) I agree with every single one of your picks. A few unfortunately didn't make it onto my (huge) list but…if I had an honourable "honourable list"….yeah ;) I thought adding more would be pushing it LOL. Plus, I completely forgot about some! Ah.. So many to choose from...

    My Top Ten

  3. Oh these are all gorgeous. I especially love Blood Song's cover and I have to read it soon as well!
