Literary Addicts Weekly Meme: Favorite Book Covers

It’s Wednesday! And that means it’s time for the Literary Addicts Weekly Meme! Every Wednesday, they suggest a fun theme to write about. The theme of this week is “favorite book covers.” It can be one coming out soon or an old favorite!

I can’t say that any one cover really stands out for me. I do know what I DON’T like: covers with real people on them (unless it’s a memoir or biography, of course). I just hate those romance novel covers that have photos of bulked up men on them. They look so cheesy! I’d rather imagine my own hero, thank you very much.

I think I’m most attracted to covers that tend to appear on historical fiction novels. I looked up some recent sellers on Amazon and came up with these covers that I like:

As you can see, I’m most attracted to covers that are mostly scenery because they set a mood or tone for the book. They make me feel like the novel is going to transport me to the place shown on the cover, and often this place looks very mysterious and interesting.

What kind of book covers do you like?

  1. Those are some beautiful covers.

  2. Oh I think the Anatomist's Wife is so beautiful. The others are nice too.

  3. Beautiful covers. The Anatomist's wife is my favorite out of them all, but i agree with covers and scenery. It makes you believe the author will take you there.

  4. There is definitely a theme with these choices...
