Top Twelve Book Covers I’d Frame As Pieces of Art

“Top Ten Tuesday” is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!



This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is the Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame As Pieces of Art.

So, this week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is a dream come true for me because if there’s one thing I have a weakness for, it’s a beautiful book cover. After compiling twenty-eight editions of Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover over the course of ten months, it’s safe to say that I’ve seen my fair share of colourful, creative, and downright astounding book covers. The twelve covers below are what I consider to be the best of the best. If there were prints made available tomorrow, I would snap them up in an instant!

As always, these choices are listed in no particular order.

1) Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

2) Mad Women by Jane Maas

3) This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

4) No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale

5) Moonglass by Jessi Kirby

6) This One Summer by Jillian Tamaki & Mariko Tamaki

7) Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

8) Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

9) The Cavendish Home For Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand

10) Tell The Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt

11) Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

12) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

  1. I don’t think I’ve seen that version of the Moonglass cover – it’s so much better than the other one!

    I love how you’ve arranged the books with similar color themes together. All good choices!

  3. YES to all of Rainbow Rowell’s covers. I still haven’t read any of Jackson Pearce’s books, but I dig the covers. Great picks!

  4. I haven’t read a lot of these books, but based on their covers, I really should! The cover of Moonglass is so pretty!

  5. You have fabulous taste in book covers, Jen! I’ve always liked TSWSYL, Tell the Wolves, and Morgan Matson’s covers. (Seriously she and Rainbow Rowell are so lucky with their cover art!) This One Summer is super cute too, I really like First Seconds’ covers.
    Nicely done and gorgeously arranged as always 🙂

  6. I LOVE that every one of Morgan Matson’s covers made it on your list. Some pretties 🙂 Second Chance Summer was on my short list, but there just wasn’t room (I narrowed it down to 19, HAHA.

  7. The only cover that speaks to me is “No One Else Can Have You” by Kathleen Hale. It is just so original that it actually drew my eyes to it. The title is great, too. But the sweater? I now need to read this book. Have you had the chance to do so yet?

    This weeks theme really was a dream come true for you, I am not surprised you couldn’t limit your choices to the normal 10, I am surprised you managed to restrain yourself at 12. After all the beautiful covers you post each week you must have had an array of stunning and framable covers to choose from. I love the chooses you made, especially all the Morgan Matson books, whoever designs those covers is a genius.

    I love that you couldn’t choose between Morgan Matson’s gorgeous covers and just went with all of them. That cover designer is pretty brilliant, because they are so far from what I usually like yet I still find them beautiful.

    I love the Sisters Red cover, the new one just isn’t as cool. Fangirl made my list this week, too. I just love how simple yet perfect Rainbow Rowells covers are. =) Great picks!

  14. Rainbow Rowell has such fantastic book cover! I love Fangirl. The love the background color, and the little bubble.

    I also love the cover of This One Summer. I think that would be awesome hanging in a kid’s room.

    I’m a fan of your Do! Judge a Book by Its Cover, so I was a little bit excited to see which covers you’d chosen. I was sure they would be the prettiest and yup, they are! Great choices! 🙂

  16. I love the covers for Mad Women and Sisters Red. Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour is on my to-read list. I love the idea of the road trip and it sounds like a great summer read!

    Great choices! I love the This Song will Save Your Life cover 🙂

  18. Alexa S. says:

    It makes my heart happy that all of Morgan Matson’s books made it onto your list of awesome covers to be framed as art because (1) I love her books oh so much and (2) I could totally hang them up in my kitchen for something pretty. Other than that, I too am a huge fan of the Sisters Red cover, as it’s so striking and cleverly accomplished.
