    OMG Sarah!!! I can’t believe you picked Sabriel as one of your faves! I was going to pick it as well… but I think I like the cover of Lirael just a tad bit more for some reason.

    Oh, and Sav… I LOVE the cover of Rant! One of my faves as well! Out of all of Chuck’s novels, that one has the best cover IMO.

      I was PISSED because you picked LIRAEL for one of your faves! I was gonna list both of them! But at least we covered both books (I hate the ABHORSEN cover)!!!

    The copy of Sabriel I have is much more plain… I feel gypped!

    I really love the covers of “Wicked Lovely” and “Fragile Eternity”. 🙂

      Oh, I love the Wicked Lovely cover! I read that book for the cover, haha

      I really like the Wicked Lovely cover as well! If only I liked the book as much as I do the cover…

      And Kat, I totally picked up Wicked Lovely just because of the cover too!

    All of you made such amazing choices! Jenn: Mr Darcy, Vampyre… fabulous pick! Vanessa: Flight… holy moly what an image! Rachel: Love the Nancy Drew! Sarah: The Black Swan cover is enchanting! Savannah: I almost picked the Lovely Bones but I’m most impressed with your Animorphs choice! June: Atonement… what can I say? That simple cover captures the book perfectly! GREAT CHOICES!!!

      All of the Flight books have gorgeous covers. Course, they’re graphic novel anthologies, so I’d be pretty bummed if they didn’t all have gorgeous covers! But Volume Four has such an amazing image… It makes me so happy looking at it! :p

      And I’ve always loved that cover for A Wrinkle In Time!

    I love how our favorite covers reflect our writing styles! Sarah’s all into fantasy, Rachel’s into modern lit, Julie and Jenn obviously like classics, Vanessa likes spec fic, and I’m just random. 🙂

    OMG TOBIAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*dies of first love*

    And Jenn, I love that Mr. Darcy, Vampyre cover. Wow.

      I love everybody’s covers! We have such a range of great pictures 🙂

      Also, I’ve never read Mr. Darcy, Vampyre, but every time I see that cover I want to

    • svonnah April 16, 2010 at 3:44 PM #

      That is the book that made me fall in love with Tobias, yes. 🙂

    A couple of my favorite covers are…



    and SABRIEL. That book was so intense 🙂

    Aw, thanks for answering my QOTW! I thought that you guys wouldn’t get to it until later in the year since I’d only asked a few weeks ago! 🙂 I got such a thrill when I saw it!

      It was a great question! It seems book covers are a passion of many people – writers and readers alike.

      I enjoyed your picks, too. Thanks for sharing them. 🙂

      A SONG FOR SUMMER – I really like that cover!!

      And when we decided to do the QOTW Week, we just couldn’t pass up your awesome question!

      Maybe next time we should post our least favourite book covers… haha

      I really like the Mara, Daughter of the Nile cover! It looks like it’s done sort of in the old travel poster style that I love.
