Top Ten Tuesday | Favorite Covers

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and The Bookish) is a freebie, so I thought I’d share some of my all-time favorite book covers. I love book covers! They are one of the many reasons I will always prefer physical books to ebooks (I know ebooks have covers, too – it’s just not the same). I’ve been known to buy multiple editions of some of my favorites just because the covers are pretty.

Here are my favorite book covers:

favorite covers

The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker – definitely one of the most beautiful covers I’ve ever seen. The gold is actually metallic, and it’s gorgeous against the matte blue.

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman – I love the simplicity of this cover. I have almost all of Gaiman’s books in these editions.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – I found this British edition in a used bookstore in Boston, and I absolutely love it!

The Diviners by Libba Bray – This cover is just so perfect! I love the combination of both the supernatural and art deco elements of the novel. I’m still really upset about the cover change for the sequel.

Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen – I have the full set of these Vintage Classic editions because they are gorgeous. Each novel has a different pattern (with a complementary pattern inside), and Northanger Abbey is my favorite.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – maybe it’s because I love this book so much, but I really like this cover. Its simple, but still very interesting.

Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King – I own several Stephen King books, but this is by far the best cover. It’s just so cool and creepy.

Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling – I bought this set early last year and the covers are gorgeous! I also really love the new Bloomsbury adult versions. One day, I will probably own like eight full sets of the series.

The Martian by Andy Weir – a great cover for a great book! The orange ombre is beautiful, and I think its just so simple and perfect.

The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg – this is the only book on the list I read solely because of the cover art. I’d been staring at it for ages and finally gave in last week (thank you, Kindle Unlimited).

  1. I love all your choices!! Especially The Diviners cover — I was really sad they decided to change them…I would be interested to hear the thought process that went into the change.


    1. I agree about covers setting the tone for the book! And I love Out of Print! I have a bunch of their shirts! (I even scoured the internet for their original 1984 sweatshirt because I liked it better haha.)
