Aussie Cover Crazy

Saturday, March 12, 2011

If you are new to my blog, I like to do a feature every now and then on Aussie book covers to help promote all the great books we have hiding down here.  The following covers all have a touch of dusty yellows, oranges and browns.

Enticed                Exile


Desert Fish            Yellow Cake


My personal favourite is Desert Fish.  From the cover it makes me think it is going to be a beautiful and heartwarming story.  Also I prefer if a cover has a face on it that you just get a glimpse.  So you have an idea but not set imagine in your head before you read it.  My runner up cover would have to be Halo.  I just love the romantic feel.

Which cover is your favourite?

*waves* Hello, blog newbie here - love the idea of this feature! I'm an Aussie too but I've only seen a few of these before (I need to brush up on my book titles!), so it's good to see what's out there.

Have to agree that 'Halo' is beautiful. The silhouettes and lens flare/sun are great. I like 'Exile' for those reasons too. 'Enticed' I'm not sure about - it sort of looks like a Next Top Model photoshoot for Covergirl!

I usually do not like yellow. But these covers are stunning! I love the cover of Halo.

Oooh, I love this feature :)
My favourite is Halo. I just love the contrast between the shadows and the rays of the sun. The wings are really pretty, too.

It reminds me of beaches and sunsets, sheesh, soo purtty. Much better than the paranormal vampire shiny shiny ones here xD I like the Desert Fish cover the most too :)

My personal favorite is Enticed! Gorgeous! :)

Halo has a gorgeous cover but i also like the ones for Enticed and Exile.

Leanna (Daisy Chain Book Reviews) said...

I love the Exile cover, and Enticed too. So pretty!

I also adore the cover of Halo, but that book was a major letdown for me!!

Love this feature! :)

I love the colors on these covers! My kind of colors. :D Exile & Desert Fish look really nice.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

I'd say Halo is my fave. Has the best composition IMO.

You know...I was just saying the other day that I hate yellow covers, but I think I need to rethink that now! These are ALL gorgeous! I especially love the one for Exile :)

Vee said...

Desert Fish is my favourite as well, followed by Yellowcake, but omg, all of these are so pretty :)

Kat said...

Beautiful bunch of covers-- I love the sunset tones. I love the covers for Exile, Desert Fish, and Halo, but Yellow Cake intrigues me more than anything. Margo Lanagan is such a brilliant writer-- I never realized she was an Aussie, and hadn't heard about her new book yet! Very cool, Nic. :)

Missie said...

Awe Mate! I know you don't do it on purpose, but you really make me crave Aussie books like no other. I think the cover for Halo is gorgeous. And I love the one for Exile too!

Thanks for sharing. I'm excited that I finally discovered Fishpond, so now maybe I can get my hands on some of these. :D

Miss Page-Turner said...

Very bright and friendly covers! They look like fantastic summer reads and I still have to get my hands on HALO:)

I didn't realize Halo was an Aussie book. I'm not so sure I want to read the book, but I've been coveting the cover majorly.
