Cover Lust (24)

So many covers have come out recently that it's getting harder and harder for me to pick out favorites. Here, though, are some that I find particularly stunning.

Ruby Red by Kerstin Geir
(Henry Holt & Co. / May 10, 2011)

This German import has gotten a fabulously classy cover makeover. I can almost feel the texture, see the sheen of the metallicized components, taste the luxuriousness of that shade of red.

Dreams of Significant Girls by Cristina Garcia
(Simon & Schuster / July 12, 2011)

Simple yet evocative, and hopefully hints at the three different cultures that are explored in this novel.

Tris and Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison
(EgmontUSA / Oct. 11, 2011)

This is so breathtaking. I love how the camera focus is on the couple in the middleground. I also love the  color scheme, which reminds me of nostalgia.

So Silver Bright (Theatre Illuminata, Book 3) by Lisa Mantchev
(Feiwel & Friends / Sept. 13, 2011)

Jason Chan I believe is the artist behind these magnificent creations. I can never get over how whimsically beautiful all of Lisa's covers are. Can I pleeeeease have this in poster-size, framed on my wall?

Jessica Rules the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey
(Harcourt / Jan. 9, 2012)

*gasp* The PURPLE! What a lovely companion to the first book's cover. I think I might like this one even more. The model's dress, her expression.... and did I mention that lovely, rich, royal purple?


  1. Such pretty covers! I love the one for Dreams of Significant Girls and Tris and Izzie (though I'm not entirely sold on the girl's expression)

    I even like the Jessica cover, though I doubt I'll read it since I hated the last few chapters of the first book.

  2. I love the last 3 covers, they are all very beautiful. I also want a Print of all of Lisa's covers. Jason Chan does have a print available for sale of Eyes Like Stars so hopefully he'll provide the prints for the other two.

  3. Whoa -- Tris & Izzie stopped me dead in my tracks! And I'm guessing by the book's title that it's a retelling of Tristan & Isolde, which is such a beautiful story (and movie -- James Franco. SWOON). Off to check it out!

  4. That purple on the Jessica Rules cover is GORGEOUS - and you are right about it complementing the first book. This one seems much darker and more mysterious - I can't wait almost a year!

  5. Tris and Izzie and So Silver Bright are a couple of my favorite covers, too. Both are so pretty.

  6. Great post! I LOVE the cover of Tris and Izzie, it's gorgeous. The dress on the cover of So Silver Bright so pretty :) x

  7. I love all those covers :D Especially the last one

  8. There's a version of Tristan and Isolde coming out?! How did I not know this? Okay, I'm really excited now.

  9. Ruby Red is totally gorgeous! So Silver Bright looks pretty but it also makes the book look kinda young - Tinkerbell-ish if you know what I mean.

    Purple mmmm, I love purple :D

  10. Wow! They're all beautiful but I think Tris and Izzie is my favorite. I'm really excited for that book!

  11. Lovely covers, but I seriously gasped at the last one! I didn't realize Beth Fantaskey had written the sequel! Excellent title, gorgeous cover - I'm excited for 2012! :)

  12. OMG I didn't know the next book in the Eyes Like Stars series was coming out. I am so happy right now.

    And I will be reading Dreams of Significant Girls as soon as its out.

  13. Ooooh ~ you have such FAB taste for covers! the tris and izzie one, just, argh! LOVE IT.

    And Jason Chan is completely AMAZING ~ his illustrations are the best and I"M SURE lisa mantchev sold a few books based on the AMAZINGNESS of the covers alone. Just gorgeous!

    and ~ I'm SOLD on the dreams of significant others. it just evokes the kind of feeling I want to have when going into a contemp read like that. I'm liking the book already ;)

    LOVELY picks, hey :)

    xo Nomes

  14. You're right, it's getting so hard to choose a favorite cover. There are SO MANY lovely ones fighting for my attention right now! All of the ones you picked are just gorgeous. I've been drooling over a couple for a while now. It's my first time seeing others. LOVELY!

  15. So Silver Bright! That one is so different - love it.

  16. So Silver Bright is so, so beautiful! I'd take a poster of it, too!
    I've seen Tris & Izzie around a lot lately, I'm curious to read it when it comes out!
