Top 10 Book Covers of 2011

Top Ten Week is hosted by Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic and Lisa from A Life Bound By Books and co-hosted by Rachel from Fiktshun and Jaime & Patricia from Two Chicks on Books. Today, I am very happy to post the books that I think have the prettiest cover of 2011. Here they are in no particular order:

1. Anna Dressed in Blood, by Kendare Blake
2. Blood Rights, by Kristen Painter
3. Across the Universe, by Beth Revis
4. Wither, by Lauren DeStefano

5. The Girl in the Steel Corset, by Kady Cross
6. The Pledge, by Kimberly Derting
7. Imaginary Girls, by Nova Ren Suma
8. Tiger’s Voyage, Coleen Houck

9. Vanish, by Sophie Jordan
10. Hourglass, by Myra McEntire

I recently realized that the same person, Nekro, designed both the covers of Anna Dressed in Blood and Blood Rights. I love his attention to detail, especially the hair! What are your favorite covers of 2011?

Ooooo! I haven't seen Blood Rights before, but I love that cover! And Anna Dressed in Blood is one of my favorites too, along with Hourglass!

Benji @ The Non Reluctant Reader said...

These are some very pretty covers, thanks for sharing!

Sophia said...

Anna Dressed in Blood and The Girl in the Steel Corset are gorgeous covers that I forgot to put on my list. Great post!

Kristin Rae said...

These are fab covers! Especially Imaginary Girls and Hourglass!

I also liked the cover for Past Perfect by Leila Sales. The cover and the story are both precious.

Great picks. The Pledge is on my list too. I had to narrow it down to books I actually read, or I probably would've added a couple of the other ones you chose.

Oh I love the attention to detail on those two covers as well!

Christy @ TheReaderBee said...

Awesome list! I loved Anna Dressed in Blood and The Girl in the Steel Corset! I still need to read some of the other books on your list. :)

These are great picks. I agree with Wither and also Fever (not pictured) being so gorgeous and detail-oriented. I also love the Tiger covers by Coleen Houck. I haven't read the books but they keep catching my eye. One of my favorite covers not shown here is The Night Circus, but I think I'm really enamored by how it was done, with the paper cutouts.

Great list! It was really a spectacular year for books and their covers. :)

We share a lot of favorite covers! I love IMAGINARY GIRLS an extra special lot. :)

Aleksandra said...

Great picks! I love Nekro's work, too :) I've included all of his 2011 covers that I fell in love with on my list :D That means half of the covers on my list are his ;)
