Top 10 of 2013 copyIt’s that time of year again! Thanks to Jaime @ Two Chicks on Books,  Mindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads & Rachel @ Fiktshun for hosting the TOP TEN OF 2013!

So today’s topic is Top Ten Best Book Covers of 2013; I love nothing more than a pretty cover. So here are my favourite covers of books released in 2013 that I’ve actually read and at the very bottom will be honourable mentions for ones I haven’t read but still love the covers for (: So in order of when I happened to read them:

(01) Winterblaze by Kristen Callihan – This was the reason why I even ever discovered/read the darkest London series. This gorgeous cover!

Winterblaze - Kristen Callihan

(02) Blaze (or Love in the Time of Supervillian)  by Laurie Boyle Crompton – I like the text and the colour and hair.Blaze - Laurie Boyle Crompton

(03) Scarlet by Marissa Meyer – Another winner for the Lunar Chronicles! Love it! A perfect red-riding hood.

Scarlet - Marissa Meyer

(04) Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger – Simple yet perfectly themed for the steampunk/gear look. I love the & sign incorporated into the title.

Etiquette & Espionage  - Gail Carriger

(05) Seraphina by Rachel Hartman – I love the details the cover and it fits the feel of the book so well. I’m a big fan of the purple version especially the “S” that has a cool dragon feel to it.

(06) Cinnamon and Gunpowder  by Eli Brown – okay, another one of those books where I totally would have read it simple for the cover, because damn, I love this soooo much. [The book is also super awesome. Badass female pirate + chef + high seas adventures = awesome]

Cinnamon and Gunpowder - Eli Brown

(07) The Distance Between Us by Kasie West – I like the fonts! And the colour. And her shoes. I may have bought shoes just like them…

The Distance Between Us - Kasie West

(08) These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner – So pretty right!? The dress! The pretty stars!

(09) The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine – The cover is just so cute, the font is cute too.

    1. That was a main reason why I ended up picking it up in the first place haha, but it’s totally worth reading!

  3. I was just mentioning how much I love the Finishing School series book covers. I really want posters of all of them.

    1. Me too! They would look very pretty on the wall (:

  4. Gorgeous. I love those covers! The Program is a pretty good one. I like how simple it is.
