2014 has been the year of the young adult. Series have ended, new series have begun. We've swooned, we've cried and squealed our way through our favourite reads. Each week I'll feature a new list of my favourites for 2014. Want to join in on the fun? Post your own favourite covers of 2014 and link me up in the comments section.
This week I'm featuring eye catching, beautiful covers.
Without a doubt, one of the biggest book releases this year has been The Winner's Curse, renewing our love of beautiful covers featuring lavish gowns. Honorable mentions to both The One and Evertrue.
The Minnow was by far my favourite artistic cover of the year, but followed closely by A Thousand Pieces of You and Rain. I simply love watercolours.
Bird by Crystal Chan was simply beautiful, and the cover is a perfect representation of the simplistic and magically storyline. Chasing The Valley Skyfire wrapped up one of my favourite Aussie series and I simply love the cover on The Body Electric.
Cooper Bartholomew is Dead By Rebecca James is not only a phenomenal book, but I love the furious font used on the cover. Honourable mentions to both Belzhar and Cracked.
Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor is about as badass as you'll find in young adult fiction. Close behind is both Spark and Heir of Fire.
Not all covers need to make sense. Some are pretty just for the sake of drawing your attention. Both The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender and Breaking Butterflies were both beautiful covers without any substance for me. Snow Like Ashes is a title that is high on my to read list.
The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl could have featured in several categories, especially badass covers. I simply adore the retro comic style cover. Slip and Searching for Sky also made the list.
What would a beautiful covers list be without one of the titles in the Starbound series. This Shattered World follows the same theme are is one of my favourite covers to date. I also love the silhouettes featured in the Dust Lands Trilogy, Raging Star being the final edition of the series and Take Me On. The Australian release Katie McGarry covers are always edgier than the international releases.
