The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
This is the second book in the Heroes of Olympus series and there's something about the combination of the colors and Percy's position that makes me absolutely *love* this cover. The spine is equally pretty, with the dark blue changing to the icy blue and then the white. I love how it shows you such a vital part of the story, without knowing what the heck is going on yet before you read the book. Out of all the Rick Riordan books I've read (all except the 39 Clues books), this is by far my favorite cover.
Burn Bright by Marianne de Pierres
I *love* this cover. It's intriguing and beautiful and stunning and captivating and should I go on? I've been wanting to read this book for months now and I'm still hoping it will be published outside of Australia, but so far no luck. Thankfully we have this pretty cover to look at though!
Wither by Lauren DeStefano
The combination of the dark purple with the girl on the cover and the lining all over the dust jacket makes this one of my favorite covers of 2011. I haven't read the book yet, although its bombarding me with puppy eyes every time I walk past the shelf, but I really hope I can read it in January. It looks gorgeous and the synopsis of it sounds fantastic as well!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This is one of the older titles on my list, since I only discovered this trilogy early this year (shame on me). I love the simplicity of this cover. All three covers are made in the same way, and they are all stunning. It proves that you don't need a lot to make a cover stand out :) I love this series and devoured it like crazy. If you haven't read this series yet, I highly recommend you do!
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
This one couldn't NOT make it on this list! It was the reason I wanted to read this book, I'm not going to lie. I wasn't sure about the story itself at the time, because I wasn't really into spaceships and stuff, but oh man did Revis write a great book!! I loved it! This cover is a reversible one, with a blueprint of Godspeed on the other side, but personally, I prefer this cover. It's stunning!
Entwined by Heather Dixon
This is another one that I picked up purely because of the cover. I haven't actually read it yet (shame on me!) but I plan on doing that very soon, because I love the sound of the synopsis as well. This cover fits the 'fairytale retelling' theme perfectly and it's just so magical looking! With the castle in the background and the girl's dress and all the silvery leaves on the cover.. It's beautiful.
Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
This is one of my absolute favorites of 2011. It came out a year earlier, and it's another one of those books that hypnotized me with its pretty cover. I read the book, and I *loved* it. I cannot recommend it enough. It's such a good book and it's among my all time favorite books! I am anxiously awaiting the sequel, even though the publication date has been pushed back to August. I cannot wait! In the meantime, I can stare at this pretty cover. Isn't it stunning? I love the scribbles all over the image - it's a perfect fit for the story, too.
A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford
Usually, I'm not a big fan of a partial face on the cover of a book. But there's just something about this one.. It drew me in. The girl on the cover is captivating and made me want to read the book so badly. And then I read the book, and it was awesome! Very dark, but oh so good. The colors on this cover are what makes it so beautiful. Me like!
