Follow Friday: Favorite Book Covers

Book Blogger Hop

What is your favorite book covers?

SPLENDOR – I absolutely love the gown on this cover… Overall, I love the covers in all the Luxe books because they really put you in the time period. I have a weakness for ballgowns.
ACROSS THE UNIVERSE – This is one of my most anticipated debuts for 2011. I think that the cover is just breath-taking. Pretty colors!
LEVIATHAN – I definitely think that the picture alone does not give it justice. Seeing the actual book in your hand is a lot prettier than seeing a picture of the cover online. Love the embossing on the cover. It really gets the reader into a steampunkery state of mind!
HUSH, HUSH – One of my all-time favorite covers. Gorgeous.
HARRY POTTER – I really can’t pick just one. I love Mary Grand-Pre. Fabulous illustrator. One of the first things I did when I got the newest Potter book was to spread out the cover jacket and try to figure out what the title meant just from the cover jacket’s illustrations. Beautiful work.

In terms of site updates, I really failed to get any reviews posted. I read some galleys this week so I can’t post the reviews up until the publication dates near and that will be in 2011! Wow! A new year coming up already… But its Thanksgiving weekend so we’ll see how many books I can read until Monday!


  1. Oh I love your cover picks!

    I couldn’t make a small list for my answer! I just love too many different covers!

    Might I add that I love your blog name! Muggle Born!

    I’m a new follower :)

  2. How could I forget about the covers for Across the Universe and Hush, Hush! And the cover of Splendor as well, in fact I love all of The Luxe series covers. I just need to read them now…
    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I’m a new follower and I love your background !
    Have a great weekend :D

  3. Hello my dear,
    Stopping by from the Friday Follow.

    Great book picks! Hush Hush is one of the covers I swoon over.

    Stop by for a spot of tea and a chat any time. Right now I have a giveaway for Soulless & Changeless. I also plan on hosting a 2011 Reading Bucket List Challenge. Please do sign up if you find it worthy. :)

  4. Hello! Love your blog. I’m also a big Potter nerd and love the covers used for the series. :]

    Oh, and I’m a new follower as well! Have a great weekend.

  5. Oh wonderful choices. Leviathan is a definite favourite cover, I really don’t know why they changed it in the paperback. Across the Universe is also very pretty and my fav cover in the Luxe series is -thinks- Envy I think the one with the white and red dress and I’m with you on the Harry Potter covers. They didn’t appeal to me before I started reading the books but then once I did I loved trying to figure out what scene in the story was on the cover :)

  6. Just hopping on by! I know what you mean about a weakness for ball gowns…they’re just so pretty! :) Love that Splendor cover (well, all the Luxe covers feature amazing dresses, really).

  7. I’m not hopping (just in case you checked).

    I absolutely love the cover of Across the Universe. Actually, no, I shouldn’t single any out because all of them that you picked are really amazing! If I had hopped this week, I definitely would have picked Wither, though. That cover is absolutely goooorgeous.

    Anywho, thank you for the birthday wishes! You know what’s ironic? My second official (legal, lol!) drink was a long island iced tea! (My first was a sunset passion colada – yum!) I think the fact that we shared a similar drink tonight means we’re soul mates. ;)
