TOP 10 OF 2013: Best Book Covers of 2013


Hosted by Fiktshun.

DAY TWO: Best Book Covers of 2013

Lord of Wicked Intentions (The Lost Lords of Pembrook, #3)
1. Lord of Wicked Intentions by Lorraine Heath -- Such a gorgeous dress and I love the contrast with the title font.

No Good Duke Goes Unpunished (The Rules of Scoundrels, #3)
2. No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean -- You don't see many emerald green covers so I think this one stands out.  Also, I like the placement of the mask which is a key plot point.

The Sum of All Kisses (Smythe-Smith Quartet, #3)
3. The Sum of All Kisses by Julia Quinn -- Another unusual color for a romance novel dress.  Love the playfulness!

Heart of Obsidian  (Psy-Changeling, #12)
4. Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh -- So much awesomeness in one cover from the sexy (tortured) hero to the rainstorm to the urban setting.

Lover At Last (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #11)
5. Lover at Last by JR Ward -- This one is unique with the hero looking directly at the reader.  Plus he has two different colored eyes like Qhuinn!

Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2)
6. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer -- Simple, but powerful.  It helps readers know what to expect with the retelling aspect.

Entwined (Darkest London, #3.5)
7. Entwined by Kristen Callihan -- I just love the emphasis on the umbrella.  It reminds me of Mary Poppins...though I'm not sure what connection the cover has to the story.

Fangirl
8. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell -- A beautiful color and a humorous introduction to a main theme in the story.

This Is What Happy Looks Like
9. This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith -- This one just makes me think of summer romance which is what the book is about.

Kiss of Steel (London Steampunk, #1)
10. Kiss of Steel by Bec McMaster -- A little risque, but it works really well for this type of story.  It shows a definite sense of danger and sexiness mixed together.
