[My Top] Covers of 2014!

This post is dedicated to all the beautiful covers released into the world this year. There have been many. And I have probably ooh-ed and ahhh-ed over them. Because who can resist a beautiful cover? Seriously? Also, I cannot guarantee that I've read them all. I just like to appreciate beauty okay??

Again, these are in no particular order, because it's like asking me to choose a favourite child or a favourite book boyfriend. You just don't. I love them all equally and in different ways.

And here they AREEEEEE!









This cover is so so so gorgeous! Auuughhhh. The water colour at the bottom and the sort of contrast between the two skylines. The typography on top of it is super pretty too! I love it. The beauty is so unreal.














How could I make a list about the beautiful covers of 2014 without including this beauty? This cover was love at first sight for me. I do admit that I picked this one up like a week after it's released because I needed that cover in my life. I'm so glad that they made the cover so beautiful so that I could have this story enter my life. 














I am kind of in love with this cover. The details on the chakram and the blurring on the snow at the bottom of the cover to create focus. The contrasting of the seasons within the chakram. Yes. Yesssssss. I love this cover. I can't wait to see the cover of Ice Like Fire! 













Roses are my favourite flower and so I have a soft spot for them. But oh man. This cover is stunning! The way the spiral pattern of the rose blends into the spiral pattern of the staircase is so beautiful! I also love the way that the red stands out on this cover. So so so pretty. <3 













I loooooooooooooove this cover. And you may wonder why I put this cover since the "real" one doesn't use this cover. That's because the lovely book retailer in Canada has a special edition of The Walled City that uses this gorgeous cover. I mean. Hello, representation!! And also the dragon. The dragon and the girl are literally my favourite parts. 













Is there anything else to say about this cover outside of how cute it is?? It's super cute with all the swirls and little tidbits from the story and it doesn't take attention away from the title, which is awesome! 















I love this cover and it's simplicity! It really calls attention to the title. The rope is very symbolic towards the story and I suppose you have to read it to find the meaning. ;)


















I really enjoy this cover and the sort of monochromatic colour scheme to it. The dark fade at the top brings the focal point to the middle and lower bit of the cover and obviously the road brings focus to the couple lying there on the road. ;) I also super love that flourish pattern behind the title. Love it. I need to read this book soon!













There's just something about this cover that I really enjoy. There's a creepy aura to it because of the lighting that reminds me of The Walking Dead. Also the hands. Because creepy hands are trying to get at Lailah. 

















I adore this cover! It's so light and pretty and the Asian girl is gorgeous! Hello, representation! Also, I love how the title is written in marker. You can totally tell when you look closely at it. I seriously just love this cover. 







Could you handle all this pretty? The pretty is kind of overwhelming. ;)


Happy Reading!

  2. I'm a total cover addict, so I loved this post! You hit the nail on the head with A Thousand Pieces of You - I love how the skylines just melt into each other. And I Salt & Storm's cover does so much justice to the story - it's enigmatic and gorgeous, just like the story. I love handwritten-style titles, and the one on To All the Boys I've Loved Before is beautiful! I could go on, but I'll stop myself here. Great list - let's hope 2015 is also full of brilliant covers.
