Favorite Covers: November 2011

Here are some of my favorite covers for November 2011: The Black & Blue Edition

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting Crossed by Ally Condie Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting
I'm starting to develop a THING (in caps) for black book covers. I want to buy a lot of books that are mostly black and line them all in a row. I especially like it when black covers have the white contrast, and not much more in terms of color. The lips are pink, and the hair is barely blonde enough to be not quite white. I want to buy this and put it next to The Night Circus, and then buy some more books that are mostly black and white. To put in my row.

Crossed by Ally Condie
Aside from the fact that I just don't think the hole Cassia just punched through that bubble could have POSSIBLY made that much shrapnel spew forth, I really like this cover. I love the bubble theme going on in this series' covers, and the stark, clean background that reminds me of their Society. It's simple, interesting, and pretty, and still appropriately science fiction.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
What is going on?!! OMG, she's going to killlll meeeee! That's what I think when I look at this cover. This bitch is coming after me. Look. She's like RAWRRRRR. And it's got the black and white thing going on. I think there's probably too much white for me to put it on my black row, but I love the photography effect that is happening here. Like she just blew something the frack up.

Do you also like any of these covers? Are there any books being published this month that you're tempted to buy for the cover alone? What new little works of art will you be picking up for your shelves this month? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I liked the cover for Crossed! Must get around to reading this series :)

  2. Some great choices. And I agree with you about the colors used on the cover of The Pledge, looks really great.

  3. I'm experiencing cover love for all three of these. Can't wait to grab a copy of them and devour them one by one. LOL
