List Maniac #11 - Favorite Covers of 2010

Well, it seems like everyone is doing lists lately, I guess it's part of the whole getting closure on a year that it's practically gone (7 days until my birthday!!!)

So, I decided to join the trend, and so here you have my List of Favorite Covers of Books I read in 2010.

Fave Covers

*Paranormalcy by Kiersten White - Bold and pink! Just like the protagonist of the story, this cover made me crave this book. And it really suits the personality of Evie and of the book - with the darkness surrounding this girl who might look frail but who can totally kick your butt.

* Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr - Spare and beautiful, very much like this story about losing and finding faith. It's very simple, but beautiful in it's simplicity, the flowers and muted colors should make it boring but I just liked it.

* Jane by April Lindner - Evocative, haunting and beautiful. It just puts you in the mood of the book, even if that's not exactly how I pictured Jane to look like, this cover makes a great job of showing the feel of the book.

*Happy Ever After by Nora Roberts- Truly, the whole packaging of this series (The Bride Quartet) has been beautiful, but I loved this cover most of all because of the wedding dress, the kiss, the fact that it's the only one where the groom is in the picture!!

* Goddess Girls by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams - I'm putting all three covers in here. I love them, they are graphic, they are cartoons really, but they fit so well the plot of each of the books and the way the Goddess Girls look/are described.

Goddess Girls

Special Mention: Five Flavors of Dumb by Anthony John and Bloody Valentine by Melissa de la Cruz. I haven't read these but I love the covers. Bloody Valentine's cover fits in with the rest of the Blue Bloods series, and does the Vampire theme in a way that it's elegant. Five Flavors of Dumb is just rock and roll - love it!

Not Read

That's it for today but more lists will come along shortly!
