Top Ten of 2013: best book covers

Welcome back to another post for the Top Ten of 2013 event!

Today is about the best covers of books released in 2013!

Again, this was really hard, though not as hard as I had feared. There are quite a few beautiful covers I haven't included though, partly because I think they'll be getting enough exposure elsewhere and partly because I've already featured many of those books (and their covers) elsewhere.
I have read most of the following ones, though not all of them. There is no particular hierarchy to the covers. 


Dance of the Red Death, by Bethany Griffin
Splintered, by A.G. Howard
Paper Valentine, by Brenna Yovanoff
Ashes and Ice, by Rochelle Maya Callen
Winter Queen, by Amber Argyle
Delia's Shadow, by Jaime Lee Moyer
Ink, by Amanda Sun
MILA 2.0, by Debra Driza
Sins & Needles, by Karina Halle

Honarable mentions:

Phoenix, by Elizabeth Richards
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, by April Genevieve Tucholke
Pivot Point, by Kasie West
Chantress, by Amy Butler Greenfield

What do you think of my pics? Are there any glaring absences? And what book covers of 2013 do you find most beautiful?


  1. I love the covers for Splintered and Winter Queen! Also, my friend is in love with the cover for Ink, I got it for her as a Christmas gift!

  2. I wanted to include Chantress in my post as well but I read it in 2012 so it didn't count D= I also just love the covers of Between The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and Paper Valentine, so lovely!

  3. Beautiful covers! Great picks! Thanks so much for taking part in the Top 10 of 2013! Looking forward to seeing the rest of your Top 10’s :D

  4. Oh wow, this is the first time I've seen the cover for Paper Valentine and that is gorgeous. I always love the high contrast covers. Ink is another one of my favourites :)

  5. So.Much.Pretty.Eye.Candy. *drools* Oh wow, you picked some true lovelies here Carmen!! All of these are stunning. I think my favorites are Winter Queen and Chantress though ♥ And I still need to read both of those...and Splintered, Mila 2.0 and Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea ;)

  6. The covers for BtDatDBS and The Beautiful & the Cursed would definitely both be on my list, too. I have a thing for those with gothic themes, though. :) Chantress' cover is pretty, too, but I started that one and wasn't amazed...haven't picked it back up yet. :(
