Crazy for Covers!

AbeBooks compiled a list of 25 iconic book covers they love. While these books are modern classics (like Catch 22, Brave New World, A Clockwork Orange, etc.), it got me thinking about book covers I really like.  I love beautiful, whimsical fantasy covers...the type the gets you daydreaming about living in another world, saving the someone's life, fighting for something righteous, or falling hopelessly head-over-heels in love. So with that in mind, I compiled this collage of my favorite book covers that I've seen lately.


  1. All these marvelous choices really do make me wish I was living in the worlds the books take place in. From the whimsical fantasy feel of 'Wildwood Dancing' to 'A Matter of Magic' to the artsy realism of 'Marcelo' (I read that book, it was great :D). I think I'm in love with the Swan Maiden cover art, as well!

  2. Thanks Linna! I'll definitely add Marcelo to my TBR list. I love it when covers reflect the beauty of a story.

  3. Oooooooooooooooooooo I <3 the Swan Maiden cover :)
