~ Top 10 Covers of 2017 ~

 10. Caraval (Caraval #1) by Stephanie Garber

Genre: YA - Fantasy

Caraval was one of the books I read back in January 2017 and honestly I wouldn't have even picked it up if it weren't for that stunning back and gold cover. It so eyecatching and beautiful and intriguing, especially with the teardrop coming from the title. I also loved that in the UK we got special editions with a special picture embossed on the hardcover under the dustjacket. It's such a beautifully put together book and it looks stunning on my shelf.

9. It Only Happens in the Movies by Holly Bourne

Genre: YA - Contemporary Romance

I absolutely adore Holly Bourne. She is one of my fave authors and so I was going to read this book regardless of what the cover looked like. Now, I'm not the biggest fan of yellow, it's just too bright for my liking. However, I adore this cover. It's eyecatching and stunning and I just love the popcorn that is on the cover. It fits perfectly with the theme and the tone of the novel. I loved this book and the cover is just perfection too.

8. A Conjuring of Light (A Darker Shade of Magic #3) by VE Schwab

Genre: Adult - Fantasy

I love this series more than you could ever know. It's stunning and amazing. Alongside loving the series is my love for the covers. They are eyecatching and beautiful. Even the font is stunning. I loved these covers before I even read the series but as I read the series my love for them grew. They are so cleverly put together. I mean Kell literally is standing in the different 'Londons'. I mean it reflects the story amazingly while still being eyecatching for people who have no idea what the book is about. I adore it!

7. Otherworld (Otherworld #1) by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller

Genre: YA - Sci-Fi

Otherworld was a book that surprised me this year. It is by no means a favourite but it was interesting and I find the cover so eyecatching and beautiful. Otherworld is the story of a virtual reality game where not all is as it seems. I love the little picture of the beautiful landscape of the game but also how it's bleeding into the rest of the cover. It's so meningful and awesome. I love it. 

6. The Fallen Kingdom (The Falconer #3) by Elizabeth May

Genre: YA - Fantasy

The whole Falconer series, in my opinion, has the most stunning covers. I just love them. They are gorgeous and they really show the essence of the story. It stars the kick-ass main character and the colours and so fire-y. I absolutely love this cover. Its stunning and it's perfect for the most amazing fantasy series I read this year.

  5. Fireblood (Frostblood #2) by Elly Blake

Genre: YA - Fantasy

I absolutely love this UK cover of the second book in Elly Blake's Frostblood series. I love the contrast of the white background with the red and black burning of the rose. It's powerful and beautiful just like the inside pages as well. I can't wait for get a stunning finished copy of this on my shelf.

4. Till Death by Jennifer L Armentrout

Genre: Adult - Romantic Suspence

Now honestly, I wasn't really sure about this cover when I first saw it. I am very much a cover whore and I can't help but pick up a book with a beautiful cover and I honestly thought they could have done so much more with this cover. However, the more I looked at it the more I loved it. It truly fits this phenomenal book and I really love how old-school 'flowers in the attic' eske it looks. It beautiful and different from any other 'recent' covers which makes it perfectly unique... just like the story.

  3. Flame in the Mist (Flame in the Mist #1) by Renee Ahdieh

Genre: YA - Fantasy

Is it any surprise this cover has made my favourite covers of the year? I mean just look at it. It's so so beautiful!! The dark background, the rising phoenix, the flowers... the throwing stars! It captures every single thing that I loved about this book. It's so eyecatching and gorgeous. I am such a sucker for beautiful covers and honestly this would have made me pick it up and buy it without ever reading the blurb just so I could have this stunning cover on my shelf! 

2. The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James

Genre: YA - Thriller/Sci-Fi

I love this cover! I love this book! I just love everything about it. I love the space element to the cover and how sparkly it is in person... like seriously... it's so sparkly. I love the mystery of not being able to see the girl. It's just the perfect cover for this book. It's so sci-fi... and I freaking love it!!!

  1. Roar (Stormheart #1) by Cora Carmack

Seriously... just take a moment to look at this cover. And I mean really, truly look at it. It's a masterpiece. It's stunning and beautiful and so true to the book that it makes me so amazingly happy. 
I love Rora's dress and how it shows the true her. I love the dont. I love the background. The stormy sky that looks just so beautiful. It's completely and utterly perfect. It shows Rora's journey and heart perfectly.
I fell in love with this cover long before I read the book. It's just so utterly beautiful!
