Top Ten Tuesday 30 - Cover trends

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's theme:  Book Cover Trends I Like/Dislike

I honestly can't think of 10 different trends, so here are a few that I've noticed.

1. I've been noticing a lot of red and black making an appearance on covers lately. I kind of like it - it hints at the darker elements of the stories without making it too freaky or dark.


2. I also really like the trend of water on book covers.


3. I love the 2D/silhouette look of these covers:

4. I think it's really cool how these covers have faces but with a twist. Either the face is part of something else, or it's the illusion of a face made up of other things...

  1. I didn't think about red and black covers, but you're completely right. There are a lot of red and black covers creeping in and I love them!

  2. Great covers :) Being as shallow as I am, I've added a few to my TBR based solely on the covers :O

  3. haha no worries, I've definitely picked up books just because I was intrigued by the cover. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I've been noticing a lot of them lately, and I hardly ever notice cover trends!

  5. I love the cover of The Perilous Sea and totally agree with you about faces that have some sort of a twist! Great picks!

  6. Looove the illustrated silhouette covers the most!! The red and black really catches the eye, as well.

  7. I like the "face with a twist" covers too. It was so boring when they just stuck a generic girl's face on them.
