The amazing bloggers from Two Chicks on Books, Fiktshun, Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, and Tales of a Ravenous Reader have put together a fun event where we all talk about our favorite books from 2015! Each day we will have a new topic we are going to cover and today’s topic is the best book covers in 2015! I am a total cover snob and I will definitely buy a book solely because I love the cover! I had a really hard time keeping this list to just ten but I was able to narrow it down to these beauties! So without further ado feast your eyes on my favorite covers this year!
I love the eerie look of the ship and the blood smudge by the title. By looking at this cover you can totally tell it is a retelling of Peter Pan and that is exactly what a cover is supposed to do. I actually haven’t read this book yet, but I just recently got a copy and plan to read it soon!
The Splintered Series has some of my all time favorite covers! They fit the books perfectly and the color schemes they use are just perfection! Plus, they totally scream Wonderland with all the little elements they added to them. Out of the series, I think Unhinged is my favorite cover but Ensnared is gorgeous as well!
The staircase in this one is just gorgeous and the girl with the red hood lets you know that it is a Little Red Riding Hood retelling. I also like that the C&B are in a different font then the rest of the title, it makes it pop out more!
This cover is gorgeous to look at. I love how they blended all the different elements of the story like the wheels that represent the steampunk element, how the girl is holding a glass slipper, and then the castle underneath it all. Just everything about this cover was perfect!
When I first saw this cover I was like wow, that is a really cool cover. The more I looked at it the more I was intrigued. There is so much going on in the bottom half that really represents the book perfectly. Then you add in the feathers which are a really important part of the story. I loved this book and this cover was perfect!
5. Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray
While I didn’t quite like this cover as much as the first book, I still appreciate how amazing it is. The MC in the story is a painter and the way this looks like a painting with the paint splatters is so cool. Plus, the way they incorporated the cities visited in the book is so unique! The cover designers for this series do a fantastic job and I can’t wait to see the cover for the last book!
I love the shattering butterfly on this cover and the use of symbolism in this cover was very interesting. The dark background with the gate represents how the MC is trapped in her own life and the breaking butterfly represents her finally getting out. I really enjoyed this story and I love the cover!
When I first saw this cover I was in awe! It was so cool looking and it definitely made me want to know more about the book. The color scheme is unique and eye catching with with gold lettering. I did notice that the paperback copy got a new cover which makes me nervous because I really want book two to match this cover!
This cover is so unique and gorgeous! By looking at it, I automatically know it is an Aladdin retelling and the silhouette of the girl is cool. I have not read this book yet and honestly I haven’t heard the best things, but I want to own it just because it is beautiful!!!
There was no competition when it came to my favorite cover of the year. This cover is one of the coolest covers I have ever seen! The coloring is beautiful and it fits the book so well. I loved this book and I can’t wait to read book two (which also has a GORGEOUS cover)!
What did you think of my list? What were some of your favorite covers from this year? Let me know in the comments!
