Just look at that cover by one of my favorite artists, Jason Chan. It’s beautiful. Such a variety of awesome looking characters.
Loved the Blackbird cover, and love this one as well. Both remind me pleasantly of Death from The Sandman. I still need to read these.
Beautiful, Russian-inspired cover art.
Deceptively simple, but instantly recognisable. Click the link above to read a review.
An all-round wonderful sci-fi YA cover.
There’s something wonderfully tense and dramatic about this scene. I adore the colour of the sky as well, and the slight “Hush, Hush” style to the poses.
Super-cute, love the restricted colour scheme and how neatly they worked in such a long title.
This is the story of a boy with an abnormal face. What a tricky book to think up a cover for, but this simple image really blows the concept out of the water.
This is a brilliantly illustration – it captures the title perfectly.
To finish things off, another Jason Chan – and this time it’s the story of Widdershins, a young thief. This is another cover which uses a restricted set of colours to beautiful effect, as well as negative space. I really like how confident and intelligent the young thief looks.
A few runner-ups that didn’t make the cut:
“Cinder” by Marissa Meyer. The cover sums up the story perfectly: Cinderella, with cyborgs.
“A Million Suns” by Beth Revis. “Across the Universe” had a fantastic cover, and it’s sequel is just as artistically well-off. This spells out the sci-fi and romance clearly, and the covers fit well with the previous book’s cover.
