YA Book Covers = Arthouse Movie Posters?


At least that's what hubby said when I showed him my favorite 2011 upcoming (mostly debut) covers featuring teen girls.

They are breathtaking, modern, and sophisticated.

Let's take a look:


LUMINOUS



THE NEAR WITCH


SHATTERED SOULS


SUPERNATURALLY


POSSESS


HOURGLASS


THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER


A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL



Who am I missing?


SEE YOU ON THURSDAY!

These covers what me running to my current YA WIP and tearing it apart! I'm dying to have a cover as gorgeous as theres! BREATHTAKING!

I've had the priviledge of reading one of those "THE NEAR WITCH" and I can tell you the cover isn't even the half of the inside... the story is SO FLIPPING AMAZING!!!

The last cover is so intriguing! If I was judging a book by its cover, this one would win hands down!

these are all super fluid too - you know?

Mary Lindsey said...

Thanks for including my cover of Shattered Souls. They are all so beautiful.

These are all amazing. I remember hearing people complain about the move to photo covers, but I LOVE the trend.

Nisa said...

Very sophisticated, lovely!

Gretchen McNeil said...

Thank you SO MUCH for including POSSESS in this amazing list! I totally love my cover and I'm so glad you do, too!

I agree with Very Married about the fluidity of all the covers. Seems to be a common theme. Although the last one seems to be closer to an old Breck ad of the late 1960s or early 70s.

So gorgeous! I hope one day my name will be on a cover as fabulous as any one of those!

I'm sensing a cover theme this year. A beautiful, breathtaking one!

Super artsy fartsy. Seriously though, they are truly gorgeous.

Those are gorgeous. Hourglass is my favorite image.

Melissa said...

SO freaking gorgeous....I can't even stand it... except I can because I have a vain streak. ;)

I love those! I'm a huge fan of the cartoony covers popularized by chick lit. I'm not seeing so many of those anymore.

All these amazing covers--it's making trips to the bookstore like trips to the museum! I would totally frame those and hang them on my wall!
