I am a little bit Cover Crazy

Sunday, October 31, 2010

Do pretty covers suck you in?  I love pretty covers and I love to share them.  Here are some of the best Aussie titles with a beachy/summer type theme. 

The Byron Journals                                                      Saltwater Moon

Rose By Any Other Name                                            Guitar Highway Rose

My personal favourite cover is Saltwater Moon.  I love the artistic border, the beautiful font and mostly the romantic feel it has to it. 

I try not judge a book by it's cover as I have been burnt a couple of times but with covers like these it is hard to resist.  All these books are on my to-be-read list for this summer which is fast approaching here. 

I am going to trying a make this a regularly meme at my blog to share the Aussie book love.  I also will be doing one for debut authors as well.  So check back for those.

Which cover is your favourite?

I am always judging books by their covers :) I think my favourite covers this year have been Plain Kate and The Unwritten Rule.

Of these I like Guitar Highway Rose best. I like the titled horizon and the font and the girls skirt and hair.

Nice covers. I think I also favour Guitar Highway Rose out of those covers. Thanks for the list of some Aussie books. I need to read more of them, too.

Btw, my interview for Jess Shirvington has been re-scheduled for the 1st of November. I'm capped and have been trying to upload the images to Blogger, but it won't fricken load! So yeah...have to wait for the new month to come around.

I always judge books by their covers! I'd say highwater moon as well. Dark border is a nice contrast :)

You're blog is beautiful too btw :)

Yeah, I totally judge books by their cover, too :)

I love the Guitar Highway Rose one, that's probably my favourite. But I love Highwater Moon, too -- that comes in a close second. All of these are gorgeous, tho.

I'm going to have to agree with everyone else and say that Guitar Highway Rose is my favorite out of the bunch. I really love the script style, the color of said script, and the model that they used for the cover.
And yes, I too judge books by their covers--pretty much all the time, unless the buzz behind a book is insane and the summary is just that interesting. I'm terrible at playing favorites though, so I don't have a favorite cover for this year--at least not yet. xD

I think Guitar Highway Rose is too. I love the beach and the clothes the girl is wearing.

Thanks for all the comments. Glad to know that I am not the only sucker for pretty covers. Guitar Highway Rose is gorgeous too!

@ Cass - Thanks I will go back and check it out :)

@ Nomes - Will have to order Guitar Highway Rose immediately if it is one of your favourites :)
