Top Ten Covers

It's been ages since I did a top ten but this week it's all about covers and you all know how much I love a good cover design. So really, the hard bit is narrowing it down to ten. Sadly a lot of the covers of my UK editions have vanished off Goodreads so this is a selection of ones that I don't have to hunt down. I haven't widened the net to covers I covet otherwise we'd be here all night. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Click on the covers for review or Goodreads info.


  1. Nice - but I have to say, I posted a slew of Dracula covers with my review and there were a couple I liked better than this one.

    1. I love the simplicity of the Vintage one, like it's the manuscript that's been bled on. I do prefer simple design though and it's all personal taste - this is definitely my favourite Dracula cover.

  2. I forgot to add Warm Bodies to my list! What a great cover! All of these are delightfully creepy :)

  3. Truly awesome to see Zoo City on your list - my boss will be extra happy since he helped develop the design for it :-)

    And you definitely seem to have a thing for black, white and red! ;-) Out of those you've posted my favourite is Shiver - it's simply gorgeous!

  4. Shiver is a good one, but I like the U.S. version better. Thanks for sharing!

    My List

  5. I love the Vintage covers, and that cover of Zoo City is what made me want to pick it up. The version I have is really ugly.

  6. I love all those covers! I don't know if they are my kind of books to read but they would make an awesome collage!

  7. I love the Vintage book covers - I'm slowly collecting them all and that Dracula one is actually the newest addition :)

    I really like the cover of Diving Belles too actually. I've never seen it or heard of it before, but it's beautiful!


Everyone loves comments, right? I read them all and do my best to visit your blog if you leave a link (and you're not a spambot).
