Hey book lovers! Today is Couple Covers!! YAYY! Keep in mind since I am a US book blogger, I did not include any UK/AUS/Other covers. Also keep in mind I am mainly a YA book blogger, so these are all YA novels (:  Now lets get on to those top covers..todays catagory is couple covers (:

Top 5 Couple Covers of 2011


Audition by Stasia Ward Kehoe-add to goodreads here

Why this book made top 5 covers?

  • This book made the top 5 for me because it really is a very simple cover, but I love it. It is I wanna say a very simple and classy cover, I love the cursive font, I love that they put a section from the book faded into the background. Another thing pretty about this cover is the couple, they are both beautiful and they just look so ..well in love! I know I know..I sound cheesy, but honestly I can't help but say awhh whenever I look at this cover!


Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari-add to goodreads here

why this cover made the top 5?

  • I love this cover, I have read part of this book and honestly that picture of the city is exactly how I imagined it while reading, it is so detailed and just looks awesome, the way the characters are dressed also looks exactly like how the book states they are dressed. I love the blueish gray tint that is over the picture, and I love the big bold yellow font. This cover just looks awesome.


Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick-add it on goodreads here

why this cover made top 5?

  • okay, now I know most of you are probably like...why isn't this cover number one!??! Well the only reason is I am not a huge fan of it...I love all the work they must've put into creating the image of Patch and Nora..but I feel they should've done more with it, it is just the black and white I think that mainly bugs me..I know all the covers do this theme..but really how pretty would these be if they were in color? Gorgeous I tell you!


Ashfall by Mike Mullin- add to goodreads here

why this cover made the top 5?

  • I LOVE this cover. It is so unique and so detailed! I love all the ash that is everywhere, I love the back of the girls hair, I love him wiping off the ash on the mirror , I just love this cover. I don't even know what to say about it, but it is awesome! I seriously need to invest in buying this book once my ban is up. I need this on my shelf! 

#1-Top Couple Cover of 2011

Across the Universe by Beth Revis-add to goodreads here

why this cover is number one?

I LOVE THIS COVER! It is one of my favorites of all time, mind you I am a huge sucker for any sci-fi looking covers! I love the stars! I love the font! I love the bright star that is right on the I, I LOVE their faces! I just love this cover!! It is...ugh it is just so beautiful!

Well that is all for today's stop of Top Couple Covers of 2011, please keep in mind I do not know about every book in the YA world, so I am sure I am missing some equally awesome couple covers, but to me these ones take the cake of 2011! Come back tomorrow and check out the top 5 Indie/Self Pub covers of 2011! (: 

What would be your top couple cover of 2011? (:

This is so funny and I feel really dumb but... I totally did not realize that Across the Universe was a pic of two people's faces until I looked at it one day-- after it had been out forever-- and was just like, "Wait a minute? OHHHHH....." Haha! Until that moment of epiphany, I thought it was a giant, pink amoeba thing. **slaps forehead**

It is such a great cover, especially now that I realize what it actually is lol! ;)

Haley @ YA-Aholic said...

hey guys this is just for covers that have couples on them, not to do with the actual couples! If it were actual couples The Iron Queen would TOTALLY be on here! (:

LoveOfBooks said...

I totally agree with you about the Silence cover. They could've made it REALLY beautiful. Of course Across the Universe is a great number one.

Jennie said...

I love all these covers! But I agree completely. Across the Universe is just amazing! (I actually can't believe they changed the cover for the paperback).

roro said...
