Month of Favorites-10 Covers

Here are ten of my favorite covers from the books I read in 2014. I choose them because they are not only visually interesting but they go so well with the text. I look at them and I'm taken right back into the magic and mood of the stories.

  1. These are great! I love the cover of Mr. Loverman. He definitely looks like a Loverman! So cute!

  2. He's kind of a cad, but quite wonderful, in his way.

  3. I'm fascinated by Leaving the Sea with those bits of paper adrift amongst the waves, and I like the cutout profile of the female for An Unnecessary Woman.

    1. It really goes with the stories. Every time I finished one of the stories I would sit back and study the cover. Like you said in your entry these covers "are not separate from the content within."

  5. Interesting. I picked most of these books because of reviews and recommendations. The two I first picked up because of the covers were Bedrock Faith and Shotgun Lovesongs.

  10. Great selection. I love the cover of the Ben Marcus. I have a copy of The Flame Alphabet and the cover artwork is very similar in style.

  12. I usually don't like photographs of people on covers of fiction books but this one is perfect for the story.
