It's time for another Road Trip Wednesday, a blog carnival hosted by the lovely ladies of YA Highway.
What are your all-time favorite book covers?
I have to admit, when I think of my favorite covers, the first one that pops to mind is this one:
But the truth is, I like it because I think the girl on the cover looks like me. Or, I like to pretend she does, anyway. (The story inside this book is just as awesome as the cover. Hear me gush about it here.)
But aside from that one, I have generally found myself drawn to simple covers with bright colors and with a graphic or a photo of an object rather than a face.
These I think are pretty and really evoke the mood of the story they are telling. They almost say, "lovely writing inside" when you walk by them.
I love the simplicity and color of some of David Levithan's books.
Same goes for Tera Elan McVoy's books.
And a few more favorites, just in case my style wasn't clear to you yet...
I think I must have latched on to the simplicity of my childhood favorites at some point.
So, what are your all-time favorite book covers?
