So much to my husband's delight, going to the bookstore is even more of a lengthy ordeal than it was in the past, because now I have to stop and admire all the gorgeous YA covers and dream up what my cover might look like. As a result of my most recent scouring of Chapters, here's what I came up with as my hands-down favorite YA cover:
This choice is ironic, because I normally dislike covers with close-ups of faces. But what's not to love here? The colors are striking! The girl is so pwetty! And I love the font for the title! It's exactly what I'd love for my book cover to look like (except for different, 'cause, you know, that whole copying thing.)
Runners up, whose covers also inspired feelings of jealousy:
Common theme I'm noticing here is color. Lots of color! And bold lines. And things that are pretty! And that last one, which admittedly doesn't have a lot going on, yet I love just as much anyway.
Feel free to disagree with my choices. I promise to only hate you a little bit for it :)
So, what are your favorite YA book covers?
