I love a great book cover almost as much as I love a great book. Here is one I discovered in delivery this morning. Although you really have to see the actual book to fully appreciate the cover. It has dimension that you lose in a picture.
Ghostgirl (Ghostgirl, #1) by Tonya Hurley

Great idea! Here's one of my favorites- a book that I like more the further I get from it. The cover evokes exactly the same response as the story, by making you both afraid to look and unable to look away.

The Monstrumologist (The Monstrumologist, #1) by Rick Yancey

Patricia | 15 comments I have to agree with Jen- I don't usually like horror stories, but this one is just soooo good! It is a Printz Honor Book, but it gets overlooked, I think. It's a good read for teens and adults- reminds me of classic horror stories like Frankenstein, etc.- written in an "old-fashioned" style.

Jan (libraryhag) | 64 comments Got to say the cover of Glimmerglass (Faeriewalker, #1) by Jenna Black is really nice.


message 5: by Danette (new)

Danette | 14 comments Yes, that is a great cover. In my next life I want to design book covers--and I have no artistic talent in this life, so we will see how that works out!

Jan (libraryhag) | 64 comments One of my favorite knitting book covers is Romantic Hand Knits 26 Flirtatious Designs That Flatter Your Figure by Annie Modesitt . It reminds me of a romance cover.

Susan- you can add a book cover by clicking the "add book/author" link that is directly above the comment box. It links up the cover and the book's page automatically.

Thanks that is good to know. I really like the cover for the children's book Lincoln and His Boys by Rosemary Wells. Lincoln and His Boys by Rosemary Wells

Jan (libraryhag) | 64 comments I really hate to see this thread drop. I really love the Blackbird Sisters mysteries. This is my favorite cover How to Murder a Millionaire (Blackbird Sisters Mystery, #1) by Nancy Martin

Aphrodite's Kiss (Time of Your Life) by Julie Kenner

Nice and spooky.

message 22: by Jan (new)

Jan (libraryhag) | 64 comments Oh, yes, The Nightmarys by Dan Poblocki on my list to read already. Love the title too.


message 23: by Jan (new)

Jan (libraryhag) | 64 comments In a totally different direction, Murder Past Due (A Cat in the Stacks Mystery, #1) by Miranda James . How could I not love a book cover with books and cats. Just needs a dog and it would be perfect.

message 27: by Jan (new)

Jan (libraryhag) | 64 comments This cover is a winner. Mysterious and definite shades of Indiana Jones. Warrior Warrior (The Blades of the Rose, #1) by Zoe Archer by Zoe Archer

I love the covers (and the content!) of this series:
If I Stay (If I Stay, #1) by Gayle Forman
Where She Went (If I Stay, #2) by Gayle Forman
The cover of If I Stay really conveys the fragility of the situation of a girl deciding whether to wake up from a coma into a brutal, heartbreaking life. And the girl on the cover of the second one actually looks just like she did in my head. Great books!


message 29: by Jan (new)

Jan (libraryhag) | 64 comments I love this cover too Wither (Chemical Garden, #1) by Lauren DeStefano


message 30: by Angie (new)
