Inspired by a post at Book Chick City - at http://www.bookchickcity.com/ - here is a Top Ten of my favourite book covers of 2010. Always one to fall for a beautiful cover, I just had to do a list like this!
10) Freedom by Jonathan Franzen
I just love the black and white
9) Torment by Lauren Kate
Again black and white. And I like that it is a woman from the back - leaves room to imagine her face. Fits well with the content of the book as well.
8) Shanghai Girls by Lisa See
I like the soft, pale colours and the way that the girls' skin looks perfect.
7) The Passage by Justin Cronin
Again black and white - sense a pattern? :-) I like the close-up, it looks really eerie and a bit worrying but I really like it!
6) The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman
Three colous, keeping focus on the title and author name. Like it.
5) The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell
Again only three colours but lovely oldfashioned picture with lots of fine little details. I caught my eye straight away.
4) The Early Years by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Love the colours!!
3) The Crow's Wow by Susan Briscoe
2) Money by Martin Amis
Cool cool cool. I want to read it just for the cover
1) Life by Keith Richards
This cover tells a story and it makes me want to discover what is inside. An iconic cover, if you ask me.
