1. SCARLET by Marissa Meyer
How great does this look? That red cape is so vibrant and eye-catching, and the font is amazing. This cover also does a good job of conveying the subject of the book.
2. GOING BOVINE by Libba Bray
One look at this cover and I knew I wanted to read it. I mean...it's a cow holding a lawn gnome. What more do I need to say? The image really contrasts well with the simple background.
3. ALL YOU NEVER WANTED by Adele Griffin
The cover model's eyes are so striking and fascinating. I also like the vintage photograph aesthetic contrasted with the scrawled title font.
4. PLEASE IGNORE VERA DIETZ by A.S. King
I love the way the words in the title are the flame from the lighter. And it showcases the title, which was definitely something that drew me in.
I love the vibrant colors and the cartoony feel of the artwork. Guns are pointed at the silhouette of a girl with a gun of her own...I'm intrigued already.
6. HOW MY SUMMER WENT UP IN FLAMES
I like the way this cover conveys a double meaning: the gas can is to fuel the car, but also with the word "flames" in the title, you get the sense that maybe arson was involved. Also the red of the gas can really stands out against the rest of the cover.
7. BEAUTY QUEENS by Libba Bray
A beauty queen wearing lipstick like ammo? Enough said.
8. CODE NAME VERITY by Elizabeth Wein
This book has had a few covers, but this is the only one I like. The way these girls are grasping hands with their wrists tied together conveys the desperation and undying friendship in this novel. Also, the red "verity" really pops on this cover.
9. LOOKING FOR ALASKA by John Green
I love the smoke on this cover, and I like it without the candle, which was added later to avoid an endorsement of smoking. It conveys the darkness of the content in a really subtle way.
10. CROAK by Gina Damico
I love this cover. The scythe, the darkness around the girl's eyes, the smirk on her face, the skull instead of the "O," the red lettering.
