Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Covers Of 2012 (So Far!)

Top Ten Tuesday was created and is hosted by The Broke And The Bookish. This week's topic is favorite covers of 2012 that have been released/revealed so far! 2012 seems like the year of epic covers so this is going to be pretty tough to narrow down.

In no particular order:

Shadows Cast By Stars by Catherine Knutsson- I want this as a poster. A gigantic poster to hang right above my bed so I can admire the pretty whenever I want to. *claps for the cover designer*

Above by Leah Bobet - I love everything about this cover. I love that it seems to fit in with the story, I love the sepia tones, the fonts, the way the sunlight hits her face but we can't see it. Gah! It's so gorgeous.

Ironskin by Tina Connolly - I'm pretty much over the trend of girls in pretty dresses, but this is definitely one of the exceptions.

Larkstorm by Dawn Rae Miller - I love that publishers are starting to use artwork and vector images on their covers. This is one example of why we need to see more of them. I haven't heard of this book, author or publisher but I still have plans to buy JUST for that extraordinary cover.

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund - Another pretty dress cover, another exception. I especially love the font and the colors of the font. I would definitely make a beeline for this book if I saw it on shelves at the bookstore.

The Cavendish Home For Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand - More illustrated cover art! Another one that I want a poster of! Look at that kickass typography!

The Best Night Of Your (Pathetic) Life by Tara Altebrando - This cover is so fun and upbeat. I love the images in the text and the silhouettes of the characters/car up top. Definitely has that awesome "road trip" vibe to it.

The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry - The title with the steampunk decorations and those shiny wings ... so insanely cool.

The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna - The images in her silhouette are so awesome. And I love the glow around the cover, especially since this in black & white because the color makes it pop. Will definitely be adding this gorgeous cover to my shelf.

The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour - What a bright, colorful, happy cover. Also, I really want her sunglasses.

What are some of your favorite covers of 2012 so far? Comment and let me know!


  1. I totally agree with some of these. Above, Larkstorm, For Darkness Shows the Stars are some of the most beautifully covered books I've had the pleasure of staring at. Seriously gorgeous, yo. And The Disenchantments! It has such a bright, fun cover. Love.


  2. Aw, thanks for saying such nice things about my book's cover! (I actually do have the cover framed and hanging in my office - might be making a few poster versions as giveaways down the road, so stay tuned!). Totally made my day!

  3. Above, For Darkness Shows the Stars and The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life are some of my favorite covers this wear as well!:)

    1. I love that the For Darkness Shows the Stars cover isn't a REAL girl in a pretty dress, plus, the colors and the stars make it extra stunning.

  4. I love the cover of Shadows Cast by Stars. Whenever I see a raven, I think of Poe.
