I've decided to do the top ten challenge from the blog "The Broke and the Bookish" http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com/p/top-ten-tuesday-other-features.html#
So, I thought I'd go through their list and do the different challenges, the first being "Favorite Covers"
Just so you know- if I post a cover, it doesn't mean I like the book of the title(or have even read it); it just means that I thought the book had a cool cover. (If you look, you'll see that I love book covers with people on them )
1: Secrets of the Jedi - I love how it has four of my favorite characters on the front cover(I love how they made Siri Tachi look*she looks like Dianna Agron*), and I love the planet and space on the front and back of the novel- it's beautiful and spacey. :) Definitely a beautiful cover for an amazing story :D :)
2: Jedi Apprentice: The Followers - Even with the weird image of the Sith scientist, I love the crossed lightsabers and the images of Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan and Obi-Wan and Anakin reflecting each other.
3: Jedi Quest: The School of Fear(Japan); Japanese covers for the Star Wars books(and other works) are usually very cool looking, and sometimes I even prefer them. I absolutely love this cover- without it, we wouldn't have gotten a good idea of what Siri looked like when she was older or such a good image of Ferus Olin.
4: Leviathan(Japanese) - While I like the American covers, this Japanese cover is simply stunning- I love how they drew both Deryn and Alek and the ship and water behind the two figures frames them nicely.
5: A Million Sun - I wasn't a big fan of the first books(I liked the plot but the two leads were bleh) and I have yet to read the second(cover below) or the third one, though I probably will since the last one sounds interesting. This cover is WAY better than the last one; while that one was gross with people about to kiss(yuck!), this one is so pretty! I love the galaxy and stars surrounding the two figures who appear, due to the transparent walls around them, to be standing among-st the stars-space.
6: Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - I think it's pretty obvious why I like this one. It's got a fantasy, peaceful feeling to it with its pretty river, the cliffs rising up around it, and a small glimpse of buildings nearby. Perfectly sets up the peacefulness of the beginning and what they hope to preserve by defeating Sauron.
7: Young Jedi Knights: The Lost Ones - While the Young Jedi Knight series, like the Jedi Apprentice and Jedi Quest books, always has really great covers, I especially like this one. It's got a good picture of Jaina Solo and Tenel Ka looks like such an awesome warrior on the cover. I also like the purple cover scheme :)
8: The Land of the Silver Apples - I loved the cover of all three books in this trilogy, but this one was my favorite. I love the Nothern Lights glowing down from the starry sky and the symbol right above the red-robed boy's head. It really shows the book's story off.
9: Junior Jedi Knights: Promises - Another easy one; it has Tahiri attacking a Krayt dragon to save her friend, Anakin Solo. I love seeing the girl rescue the guy in stories so seeing this on the cover is really exciting :D.
10: Wicked Kiss(YUCK for the title) - Even though I haven't read this book and I don't like the title at all, the cover art is very beautiful and caught my eye very quickly- I love the color scheme as well as the girl on the front cover, she looks very cool.
What are your favorite book covers?
