It’s another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Top Ten Book Cover Trends I Like
This Tuesday’s topic encompasses two more things I love: books and art. This week, I’m showcasing some book cover trends I like. I’ve come up with way more than 10 books that fall into different categories. In fact, some of these books fit into multiple categories.
Okay, before you think that sentence is creepy, check out these examples of beautiful covers where the model character’s face is not visible. This adds more mystery to his/her identity, and allows you to develop your own picture of the character in your mind.
A Lady at Willowgrove Hall by Sarah E. Ladd
Home Another Way by Christa Parrish
Scenic and lush. Whether it’s the main part of the cover or just the background.
Wishing on Willows by Katie Ganshert
Seagrass Pier by Colleen Coble
A Thousand Tomorrows by Karen Kingsbury
The Last Sin Eater by Francine Rivers
This one is fun and girly. I love covers which feature a beautiful dress. Some of these could fit in the “faceless models” category, too 🙂 .
A Bride Most Begrudging by Deeanne Gist
The Colonel’s Lady by Laura Frantz
Forget Me Not by Amber Stokes
Sometimes simple is the best. There’s something personal and pretty about closeups of people’s hands – especially when they are holding an object important to the story.
Stones for Bread by Christa Parrish
The Disappearing Key by Wendy Paine Miller
Eye-catching text – whether totally featuring text and graphic design, or just prominent overlayed text.
It Happened at the Fair by Deeanne Gist
When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell
