  1. I think my favorite covers this year were the Juliet Dark trilogy covers. It's hard to say thought without being able to line all the books I read up and judge at once though. You've picked some good ones there!


  2. Beautiful! I liked the covers for Herman Koch's \”The Dinner\” (hardcover), samsies on \”Jonny Valentine,\” and Mohsin Hamid's \”How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia\” (hardcover). πŸ™‚


  3. The Love Song of Jonny Valentine by Teddy Wayne was such a great cover. Like Kristin I would of mentioned The Dinner (the lobster cover) and How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia (hardcover). I would also mention Tampa (the UK/Australian button cover) and The Machine by James Smythe


  4. Those books look great! Great choices. I would say my favorite book covers for this year is S (I haven't bought it yet though), Doctor Sleep (I'm done reading this), The Ocean at the End of the Lane and Tequila Mockingbird πŸ™‚


  5. I can tell you like unusual covers! These are great and I love they they're so unique. Many covers just look like all the other covers to me. The ones you picked really stand out πŸ™‚


  6. I like The translator very much; and also The telling room, since the concept is different but it makes you get hooked to the cover too :)I've never made a list of favourite covers :))
