Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's Topic: cover trends I like/dislike:

One trend I enjoy are use of symbols from the stories on the cover, particular the re-released Abhorsen novels. 


One trend that's very common is "girl in a dress", it's everywhere and it's getting kind of old, but there are still some gorgeous covers:


I also love the trend that keeps it simple by focusing on the title:


Finally, some covers I dislike: giant floating heads!


Everybody stand around and look constipated!


What are some trends you've noticed?

Brilliant list! I hate the floating heads. And the constipated people.
That Lost For Words book I adore though. I love big font on the title!

LOL last two, totally agree though!
Symbols and big titles are really good though, I love those.
Good picks!

Elizabeth @ Book YAbber said...

LOL to that last one. I literally almost lost the water I was drinking due to laughing so hard!
I like book cover that use symbols from the book on the front cover too. It gives a nice visual!

Stefani Sloma said...

The cover for The Darkest Part of the Forest is beautiful! Love that.
Also, death to giant floating heads on covers! It's the worst.

I love the new Abhorsen series covers - especially since the symbols really do tie into the story. :)

No... look constipated and worried. Or maybe just look worried because you're constipated. In any case, I see what you mean. Those covers don't really tell me much about what's in the books (except maybe that there's a lot of teenage angst).

Ahh yes, I never liked the VA book covers as much as I love the series!! And LOL to the last one, hahaha. I LOVE the newly released abhorsen covers!

Nicole Hewitt said...

Okay, I said that I didn't like symbols, but I actually DO like the ones you show here - especially the Garth Nix books! And I love your constipated comment! :-)
