RTW: Oooo, pretty!
I would say I generally prefer illustrated covers to photograph covers. I’m not sure why, really. And not all illustrated covers are created equal. But my favorites are the ones that have a graphic feel to them. Like Maggie Stiefvater’s Wolves of Mercy Falls series.
I haven’t read these books yet, but you better believe they are at the top of my TBR pile, which I will tackle once my semester ends in November. The covers are absolutely beautiful. Simple, yet colorful. Sophisticated, yet mysterious. Ah, I could stare at them all day.
Walmart is selling some new editions of classics like Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland in the YA section and I cannot for the life of me find a picture of them, but they are beautiful! They are graphic prints as well, but kinda … I dunno, funky is the word that comes to mind. Maybe I’ll run to Wally World today and snap a picture. Does anyone else know what I’m talking about?
What kind of book covers do you drool over? Pictures of girls in the arms of their hunks? Just words? Graphic gorgeosities, like me? (I swear that’s a word.)
