Picture Post: My Favourite Book Covers

I was looking through some books today, and realised just how much I love book covers. Aren't they amazing? Here are twelve of my favourites, both US and UK titles:

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
My Swordhand is Singing by Marcus Sedgwick


Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr
Out of the Blue by Val Rutt
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare


Stolen by Lucy Christopher
Numbers by Rachel Ward
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins


New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
Unwind by Neal Shusterman
Black Rabbit Summer by Kevin Brooks


What are your favourite covers?

*drool* I'm going to do a similar post soon (as soon as I can find enough time), but in the meantime I like looking at yours! I like the US Book Thief cover more, but I totally agree with you about nearly everything else. Isn't "Hush, Hush" GORGEOUS? And the ARC cover for "Fragile Eternity" was so beautiful that I nearly didn't want to give it up, lol.

Yay for pretty covers! All of these are great choices. :)

I definitely agree with most of them. Especially Hush, Hush, FE, Unwind, Stolen and New Moon.

Good choices, but personally I'm a huge fan of UK chick lit covers because they're just so cutely illustrated! :) Oh and I like historical covers too because of the dresses, hehe! (I wanted to post some link, but for some strange reason I can't post them?)
I recently fell in love with the cover (as well as the book) of Wintergirls and I also simply adore the cover of Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen - I admit I ordered that book mostly because of the cover, even though I'm sure I'll love the plot too, but the cover is just so lovely and summery! :)

I love the book My Swordhand is Singing! Some of these books are so beautiful, especially hush, hush.

I absolutely adore the cover for Hush, Hush. New Moon and Fragile Eternity also have great covers. Actually, all the books look great. :P I've been staring at the Numbers cover for ages now- so gorgeous. All of the covers are great picks! :)

Oh I love that Numbers cover a lot. It's super pretty. And I do agree that as much as I dislike the Twilight phenomenon, they do have pretty covers. :)

What's Out of the Blue about? I check Amazon and there's no breakdown.

I like the drawings on the Harry Potter books.

Nice picks! My fave from this list is definitely The Book Thief, it's gorgeous! Right now, I think my favorite cover is either Freaks: Alive on the Inside or Breathers. The artwork is superb on both and I'd buy them based on looks alone.

Freaks is awesome!!!! Annette Curtis Klause is an amazing writer.
