Top Ten Favorite Covers of all Time

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They love to share lists. 

I think covers are so awesome. Most of the time it is what draws me to the book. These 10 are the ones in the recent years that I think are the best of all time. =]

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

I think this one is so creative, I love the different symbols for the different factions and I can't wait for Insurgent to come out. =]

Sisters Red (Fairytale Retellings, #1)Sweetly (Fairytale Retellings, #2)
Jackson Pearce's Fairytale retellings are amazing and the covers look so good and magical. I love how the sisters intertwine with the wolf. And I love how the face is in the branches of the trees of Sweetly which I still need to read and can't wait to.

Pure (Pure, #1)
I just read Pure and I love the cover with the dome and Pressia's butterfly. It kind of gives you a sense of deeper meaning. Especially once you read the synopsis. =]

Eragon (Inheritance, #1)Eldest (Inheritance, #2)Brisingr (Inheritance, #3)Inheritance (Inheritance, #4)

The illustrations of all the dragons on these covers really make the world of Eragon come to life. I can't wait to start Inheritance and dive into the last chapters of this world.

The Alchemyst (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #1)The Magician (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #2)The Sorceress (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #3)The Necromancer  (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #4)
The Warlock (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #5)The Enchantress (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, #6)

The covers of this series really what got me interested in the books. I love all the elements and symbols going on with the covers. It states that the world inside the book is exciting and magical and very interesting.

Tempest (Tempest, #1)

This cover just invites you to delve into the story of Tempest. It asks the question why are these two people falling in the sky and what will happen to them. You have to read to find out and it is a very exciting read indeed.

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)
Hunger Games simplistic covers really says it all. Awesomeness.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
How could I not put Harry Potter on my list. It was one of the first covers of my childhood and I loved looking at them trying to figure out what was going to happen in the book.

Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)

Across the Universe is awesome and so is its cover. I mean the stars mixed with Amy and Elders first meeting. You just have to know what this book is about. Then you find out the cover is reversible with a map of Godspeed on the back. The map plus the thrilling, awesomely written first chapter solidified how great this book is.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
Creepy and weird. I just had to read this book from the cover and pictures inside it. I mean a girl floating on her own how can you resist not reading this book. I just had to find out what happened and I am glad that I did. =]

Thanks for visting my Top Ten. Link me up to yours and I will come visit once I am out of work tomorrow. =]
