Top Ten Tuesday: Book Covers

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists! 


 Ten Book Cover Trends (or just elements of covers) I Like/Dislike {can stick to one or the other or both!}

I'll start by saying that I am a book cover snob, yup I will skip a book because of the cover and not even read the blurb, I'm sure that I've missed great books because of this.  On the other hand I have picked up some wonderful covers, and was so disappointed with the book.

Words only, no picture, just the title and author.  Do I like it?  Not really, Jojo Moyes book looks to 'chicklit' to me (not a favorite of mine).  Thankfully I read the blurb on netgalley for this one and it is one of my favorites.  It made me realize not to judge a book by its cover because I would have hated to miss this one.

Cover that leaves no question who the book is about.  I love it when its an authentic portrait.




3.  Back of women.  You can just feel a great story hiding in there.


Art Historical Fiction. I love learning while I read, I love the painting being shown on the covers.


Symbols.  Yea love them (especially on this series)


Dislike covers with movie stars on them.
 


 Ok so I didn't come up with 10, but close enough.
