Today is my turn to post for the Teens Can Write, Too! Monthly blog chain. This month's prompt is: What are some book covers that grab you? Why?
My taste in covers is pretty varied. Anything with a dragon will capture my attention. For example, the covers of the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini.
I like some covers with people on them. I don't like ones with kissing or holding hands or other romantic yichk on them.
These are the covers for the Dark Mirror novels by M. J. Putney. (Sorry about that weird border around Dark Destiny. Also, Dark Destiny is number 3, but The Blogger Formatting Demons won't let me put the photos in the correct order without causing other problems).
I like these covers. They hint at magic and mystery. And of course the castle on Dark Destiny is awesome.
Other covers with people on them that I like are the covers for the Paranormalcy series by Kiersten White.
(First from Wikipedia, 2nd and 3rd from the author's blog)
I'm not sure why I like these covers, but I do. Maybe it's the colors. Or her hair.
Another series with covers I like is The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flammel by Michael Scott.
I think that's all for me. Be sure to check out the rest of the blog chain!
