(They're in no particular order. I find it so hard to have favourites)
1) Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye
The way the crown is a nod Russian architecture is just perfect for the story. I've yet to crack open the book and give it a read but it will happen very soon, I hope. The crisp whites and golds are just beautiful too.
2) Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
Continuing with the gold theme, I have the very simple--but gorgeous--edition of this book. The little gold and red flecks against black really capture my attention and highlight the figures in the middle.
3) Defiance by C. J. Redwine
The main character's (Rachel) fiery hair stands out against the more moody background, and her powerful stance matches her personality super well.
4) Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
This cover is so chaotic and wild, but somehow it works. The design has just enough business to relate to the title, but still leaves enough breathing room with the whites around it.
5) Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
The upside crown, spilling blood...I was immediately hooked before even reading the blurb. Again, it relates to the title and promises things to come-- royalty and spilled blood--and the book fulfills that promise.
6) Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Page
The font captured me more than anything else. 'Die' is so large, the colour is in your face, and the things associated with Dorothy from the movie being empty really set a haunting mood.
7) Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
8) Dangerous by Shannon Hale
9) Perfected by Kate Jarvik Birch
10) Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkoski
(sorry if the cover is blurry; it's hard to find photos of this edition)
