My Favorite.. Book Cover



My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info: My Favorite Meme.

There are many beautiful book covers out there. A book cover is the thing most people see first, and which makes most people pick up a particular book. Although I’d love to say I pick up books even though I don’t like the cover, I’m definitely a book cover groupie. I love book covers and I definitely pick up some books much faster because they have a great cover. But which book cover is my favorite?

Well, that’s a hard one to pick. There are so many amazing looking covers. But one book cover has stayed with me for a long time. The cover of ‘Twilight’ by Stephenie Meyer. I just love that cover. The black cover, the hands and the apple. There’s just something mysterious and magical about that cover and I still love looking at that one. The simplicity is what I like most about it I think. 

Since the Twilight saga is one of my favorite book series I own several versions of the books. But the first one I own is still my most favorite one. I love rereading those books, and although I definitely enjoyed the movies, those books are so much better. I’ve read the books several times and I still remember feeling completely fascinated by the story and the characters. I even had a song I listened to on repeat in my room while reading. (Yiruma - River Flows In You)

Which book cover is your favorite? Do you still look at it sometimes?

  1. I love the cover of Twilight. (It is also a favorite series of mine, too!) It was hard to pick just one cover.

    If I'm in a book store, the cover most often determines if I pick up a book to check it out. Online or review requests, I always go by the description first.

    1. It definitely was hard picking just one! I love so many covers. But this one really stood out for me.
      I totally agree.. With online review requests it's the description that makes me want to read it!

  2. I like the cover of Twilght as well. Very simple and clean. :) In a bookstore covers are a huge selling point for me. And even still on my bookshelf if I am going to reread books.

    1. Yes.. a beautiful cover really does half the work of selling a book I think. And I also remember books with beautiful covers more easily. :)

  3. I like that cover. I actually don't judge much on covers anymore. I read a lot of ebooks and audiobooks so the covers don't matter and when i'm at a bookstore, I usually have a list of potential purchases and rarely stray from it.

    1. With buying ebooks and audiobooks the cover definitely doesn't matter as much. But I still look at those covers and form some sort of opinion about them. But in bookshops I really browse those pretty covers!! :D

  4. It is a good cover. Never read it but it's kind of iconic now. :)
