Libbeth Sorry, I added a book without taking into account that it was published pre 2009. Can't see a way to delete it, sorry again


message 2: by Leila (new)

Leila I hope it's okay if I added Jane Eyre. I know the actual book wasn't published in 2009 of course but that specific edition with that cover is going to be published in April 2009 by Vintage and I absolutely love it.

That's fine and dandy - it's the cover art for this year not the content that is looked for here

:O)

Go into the full list page and over on the right is your pick and there is a cross in a box next to it - it is a very pale motif that is probably why you didn't see it.

:O)

Thanks for that, glad my new glasses are coming next week!




Shannon (Giraffe Days) Leila, that's a gorgeous cover of Jane Eyre - one of my favourite books!


message 7: by David (new)

David I voted for 'View Points and Points of View', a square format with an extremely striking image. The title has been written in the form of an artistic logo and the sinister emu staring at you out of the darkness, dares you to undo the bolt to its shed/the book, and look inside. I did dare to look inside the book and was only too glad that I plucked up the courage.


message 8: by Antoine (new)

Antoine I removed the DA VINCI CODE as I couldn't see how that could possibly be considered "of 2009." I love the new Jane Eyre cover. Kudos to whoever picked that.

Some of this cover art is great, but a lot of it strikes me as pretty ho-hum. But we are entitled to our choices, I suppose.

So glad you did! I agree with you about many of these covers - and am I the only person who finds the cover to Dan Brown's new book to be extremely ugly??

There are some other books here that came out pre-2009 but I don't know how to remove them.

Name them, and I will make them go away.




message 11: by Liz (new)

Liz I think Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick has the best book cover of this year, but it's not on the list =(


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Why don't you add it?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The link to add to the list is over at the right side.


message 15: by Daniel (new)

Daniel Same here. Added a few books that weren't 2009 at all, no way to delete, but I blame the list's fault: It should be a lot shorter if it's just 2009 (a lot of those are not "good covers," like in the case of "Grave Goods" by Ariana Franklin)


message 16: by zara (new)

zara I can't believe shiver is ahead of hush, hush and fallen. while its obvious that both have a better cover then shiver.

Agreed, but we can't be the judge of other's good (or bad) taste. We can all agree on what was published in 2009 though. And there is a way to remove them, if anyone wants to say what those titles are.




message 18: by Keegan (new)

Keegan Chao Those are some great covers. My favorite cover of 2009 was "The Stolen Moon of Londor" a fantasy book by A.P. Stephens. Very nice artwork. Dark and mysterious.


message 19: by Pamela (last edited Jan 13, 2010 06:36PM) (new)

Pamela Was this all of 2009 books, or just some? I know, as an author who had couple books come out in 2009.


message 20: by Antoine (new)

Antoine Books from 2009 do not automatically appear on the list, if that is what you mean.


message 21: by Betty (new)

Betty My favourite cover turned out to be 2008. I didn't post it though.


message 22: by Selena (new)

Selena Garcia I posted one that came out before 2009. sorry.
(But "Living Dead Girl" had one of the best covers ever.)


message 23: by Alex (new)

Alex Yates I think that hush hush and the hollow are so far down the list! I did really love shiver's cover (and the book)


message 24: by Antoine (new)

Antoine It looks like someone cleaned out the non-2009 book. Kudos to you, whoever you are.


message 25: by David (new)

David McCleary How often does the list "Recalculate" and reorder ?


message 26: by Antoine (new)

Antoine Every 500 seconds, it says, so every 8.5 minutes or so.


message 27: by David (new)

David McCleary Antoine wrote: "Every 500 seconds, it says, so every 8.5 minutes or so."

I know that is what is says - but the list doesn't seem to be reordering


message 28: by Antoine (new)

Antoine That is strange. Usually the lists are quite responsive.


message 29: by The Goodreads Project (last edited Jan 30, 2010 03:25PM) (new)

The Goodreads Project Yesterday, someone chose the top 25 books in this list and gave them all one star. That person only has 26 ratings. The 26th is a five star rating...of David's book. Interesting.


message 30: by David (new)

David McCleary not just interesting - weird and uncalled for.


message 31: by Mariya (new)

Mariya i think we've been getting some pretty good covers end of 2009 to starting of 2010.


message 32: by Yvonne (new)

Yvonne Pierre Wow, it's hard to choose. These are some really great covers.


message 33: by Alexis (last edited Apr 20, 2010 10:02AM) (new)

Alexis Nosic There are a lot of books. I don't think I have a favorite yet. And I've been reading for 7 years.


message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

None of these book covers really grab me, it is about the covers right? They probably look much better when you can see them very large tho. I have bought books due to intriguing art on the cover! sigh....


message 35: by Evan (new)

Evan Lang i love this book


message 36: by Calimie (new)

Calimie I love this list, seeing the covers in thumbnails really bring up the unique ones and their composition. I must admit I added a few books to my "to-read" list because it.


message 37: by Breanne (new)

Breanne The tiger series has the most amazing book covers. It caught my eye and now it's my favorite series. They deserve an award :)


message 38: by Celise (new)

Celise I don't understand The Dark Divine being on this list because the original version is off of Kelley Armstrong's No Humans involved canadian edition. Exact same photograph with colour editing.
