Carolyn F. | 270 comments I love Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate, #1) by Gail Carriger , I love the posture and the umbrella and the cover of the dress. It was the reason I grabbed the book in the first place and then I neded up loving it.

Diane | 70 comments I have loads of faves here are some I own and have read.

The Bitten (Vampire Huntress Legend, #4) by L.A. Banks The Wicked (Vampire Huntress Legend, #8) by L.A. Banks Devour (Institut Scientifique, #1) by Melina Morel Prey (Institut Scientifique, #2) by Melina Morel Ghostland (Ghostland World, #1) by Jory Strong Silk by Caitlín R. Kiernan

Dark Fire (Carpathians, #6) by Christine Feehan Skinwalker (Jane Yellowrock, #1) by Faith Hunter Blood Cross (Jane Yellowrock, #2) by Faith Hunter Dragonborn by Jade Lee Dragonbound (Love Spell Fantasy Romance) by Jade Lee Black Ships by Jo Graham


message 12: by T.L. (new)

T.L. Gray (tlgray) Of cource I think my own cover is awesome, especially since I rejected all suggestions from my editor and designed one of my own. Without reading the book, it looks ominous. But, after reading the story... it makes perfect sense.

The Blood of Cain by T.L. Gray


message 13: by Lin (new)

Lin In regards to Black Ships by Jo Graham - I love the art of John Jude Palencar. There are books on my to read shelf that are there simply because i want to own his beautiful covers. Particularly:
the Newford books (though i hear they're very good anyway),
The Mystery of Grace by Charles de Lint
the Samaria books (which are brilliant)
The Alleluia Files (Samaria, #3) by Sharon Shinn
Kushiel books
Kushiel's Avatar (Kushiel's Legacy, #3) by Jacqueline Carey

message 19: by Tenoko1 (new)

Tenoko1 Keep in mind, just because I love the cover doesn't mean I love the book. Some of these books are deeply resented. Some I've never read.

Fallen (Fallen, #1) by Lauren Kate Nevermore by Kelly Creagh Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman Halo (Halo, #1) by Alexandra Adornetto Sunshine by Robin McKinley
Nightshade (Nightshade, #1) by Andrea Cremer Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride The Reapers Are the Angels by Alden Bell The Phantom of the Opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber The Chronicles of Narnia (#1-7) by C.S. Lewis

and.... I can't think of any others though I know there are tons. I judge a book by it's cover, and will walk away from a book if I don't like the cover. lol

message 26: by Barbara (new)

Barbara Elsborg I like the JR Ward covers for the BDB series - simple and effective. I also like Nalini Singh's archangel books - the two covers I've seen so far.

Kelli Barrett Shadowfever (Fever, #5) by Karen Marie Moning
You can't really tell just by looking at this how awesome the cover is but it has different layers and is beautiful. Of course, I love this book, too!

Jess (otherstories) Nightshade (Nightshade, #1) by Andrea Cremer Firelight (Firelight, #1) by Sophie Jordan Wolfsbane (Nightshade, Book 2) by Andrea Cremer Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1) by Jeaniene Frost and pretty much all the covers in that series.
