my 5 favorite book covers

I wanted to put together a post today of my top five favorite book covers. Here they are, in order starting from my most favorite:

Wildwood by Colin Meloy. I just adore this cover. It makes me smile. It is so...full and folksy.

The Secret Magdalene by Ki Longfellow. This is just a beautiful cover for a beautiful book.

Three Theban Plays by Sophocles. Even though this is not my favorite translation, this is by far the best cover. It is just gorgeous.

Le Morte D' Arthur: King Arthur and the Legends of the Round Table b Sir Thomas Malory, this rendition by Keith Baines. This is the most striking cover I have seen for this book. How can you not want to crack it open?

The Official Quotable Doctor Who: Wise Words From Across Space and Time. I can't say why I like this cover so much. I just think it is so crisp, clean, and neat. My only complaint is the pop of red. Why the red? It makes no sense. A red Tardis? They should have had the pop of color be a bright blue instead, it would have enhanced this cover a lot.

And there you have it, my most favorite covers of the books I own. what about you?


  1. Those are all great! The Theban Plays cover is especially striking:)

    1. I do love that cover! I think a lot of the Barnes and Noble classic covers are beautiful.
