Top Ten Book Covers of All Time: Collab with Lilian from Green Tea with Books

I’m so excited to post this collab with Lilian from Green Tea with Books. We each found our ten favorite book covers, which was really fun, and we’re sharing them on each other’s sites. Lilian is a wonderful blogger, and I’m so happy to have her here today.

Once you finish admiring her Top 10 Favorite Covers of All Time (and they are beautiful), be sure to hop on over to her site to see my top ten favorite covers.

Hi, I’m Lilian! I’m a teenager who can be found immersed in a book. I write reviews of clean, Christian books and other book-related posts frequently on my main blog as well as design-related posts on my design blog. I also started a website with my friend Maddy to support indie authors, if you want to check that out. I really don’t do anything else besides that.
Okay, no, I’m just kidding. What do I do besides book-related things? I love gymnastics, snowboarding, skiing, unicycling, Ultimate Frisbee, painting, designing websites and blogs, and playing instruments, to give you a roundup of my favorite hobbies. I would definitely encourage you to come over to my blog, check out some posts, and chat with me! Hope to see you there. 

Eagle Eyes: Descendants of White Wolf

Eagle Eyes by Tammy Lash
I had the honor of reading this book for review a couple of weeks ago. It’s such a beautiful heart-wrenching story of a boy who is going blind, and I loved it so much. ❤ AND. THE COVER. heart eyes I have my fair share of favorite covers, but this one (especially the back cover) beats all others. This book is a must-have, even if you’re buying it just for the cover.

London In The Dark (Light of London #1)

London in the Dark by Victoria Lynn
I’m not sure what London in the Dark is about since I haven’t read the blurb yet, but I do have a physical copy of it and it’s so pretty! Julia Erickson, the cover designer, did such a fantastic job. I’ve heard so much about the book itself from my reading circles, and I can’t wait to read it!

A Time to Die (Out of Time, #1)

The Out of Time trilogy by Nadine Brandes
All of these books have stunning covers (I mean, they are designed by Kirk DouPonce himself). They fit the feel of the book so. well. and I highly recommend you read them- they taught me so much about faith when I was reading them.

The Mysterious Benedict Society

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart
I can hear y’all groaning now, right? I mean, I never fail to mention The Mysterious Benedict Society in my cover-related posts. ;D For those who have been around my blog for awhile, you’ll know the obsession I have with these books. They have so much humor integrated into them, and it’s always fun seeing how the children in the books solve puzzles. Stewart’s a genius and will always be on my auto-buy list.

Live Without You

Live Without You by Sarah Grace Gryzbowski
This extraordinary cover is designed by Miss Sarah Grace herself. She’s sister to author Victoria Lynn (mentioned above). I had the privilege of beta-reading Live Without You a couple of weeks ago, and it. was. A M A Z I N G. It comes out in a few days (January 22nd, 2019), and I absolutely can’t wait to grab a copy when it does!

At Her Fingertips (The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy, #3)

At Her Fingertips by Kellyn Roth
I absolutely adore this cover! I love how well it fits the theme of the book, which, might I mention, I LOVED SO MUCH. Kellyn’s also now on my list of auto-buy authors, and her covers (designed by Willowy Whisper) are to die for.

Flight of the Raven (Ravenwood Sage, #2)

Flight of the Raven (Ravenwood Saga #2) by Morgan L. Busse
I love the look of this cover so much! It really fits my personal color scheme and it was also designed by Kirk DouPonce, so, um, of course I love it. I read Mark of the Raven (Ravenwood Saga #1) and really enjoyed it, so I can’t wait to read this new release (April 30th, 2019)!

Dead Drop

Dead Drop by Perry Elisabeth Kirkpatrick
okay I don’t know why this cover honestly creeps me out a bit (I think it’s a children’s book so I honestly have no idea why it’d creep me out) bUT IT’S SO PRETTYYYYYY. I don’t own this book myself, but I’ve heard amazing things about it!

Reintegration (Reintegration #1)

Reintegration by Ashley Bogner
*flails**FLAILS* I CAN’T. This cover is seriously one of the prettiest I’ve seen. ever. You see that water droplet? It looks so interesting and it makes me want to read the book immediately. Which I haven’t gotten the chance to do yet, but each time I look at the cover I want to so badly.

Martin Hospitality (Martin Generations, #1)

Martin Hospitality by Abigayle Claire
I have a huge penchant for watercolor (my friends will all tell you I’m kinda obsessed with it), and guess what? This cover was painted in watercolor. And it’s so amazing. I love the different shades of blue in the sky and the calm + peaceful wheat field- I love that it embodies the story itself so well.

Bitter Winter (Ilyon Chronicles, #5)

Honorable Mention. Bitter Winter + all the rest of the Ilyon Chronicles by Jaye L. Knight
Okay, I don’t know who designed Miss Knight’s covers, but they’re incredibly staggering. When I first came across these books on Goodreads, I stared at the covers for solid minutes on end. I’ve heard the best things about this series and I’m so excited to start reading the first one (Resistance).

I haven’t read many of these books, so now I have a few to add to my TBR. 🙂 I hope you enjoyed this post, and don’t forget to visit Lilian and say hi!

Let’s Chat!

Aren’t all those covers gorgeous? What are your favorite book covers?

  1. These covers are so aethetic! To be honest… they are what kind of prompts me to read a book, I admit it. “The Mysterious Benedict Society” is one of my favorite books- their covers are so detailed. And “Eagle Eyes” looked super interesting, the art was kind of unusual.
    Sadly, “On the Dark Sea of Darkness” isn’t at my library 😦 BUT the ebook might be there.

    • Aw, thanks, Vaishnavi! Me too- I LOVE The Mysterious Benedict Society. I actually didn’t mention On the Dark Sea of Darkness, but most of the books listed here are independently published books, which might be why you don’t find them at a normal public library. 😉 Thanks for commenting!

    • Thank you! I agree, Lilian’s covers are so beautiful! I know, for some reason I hadn’t heard of many of the books on this list, so my TBR just had a growth spurt.
      Thanks for commenting!
