Nominate the best people-free YA or NA book cover

Looking at my Pinterest account made me realise what a sucker I am for a cover with a pretty boy or girl on it. I’m not sure whether that’s because I look at a lot of YA covers, and most of them feature people, so my collection is reflective of what’s out there—or whether it’s due to my own biases. But to try and address this, my post over at Aussie Owned and Read this month will be a poll where we vote for the best YA or NA cover that has no people on it. I’m extending this to include bits of people, such as eyes, or silhouettes of people. (Animals, however, are fine.)

But in order to vote, we first need covers to choose from, so I’m asking you guys to nominate your favourite covers first. Post in the comments with your favourite cover, and make sure to include a link to the cover you mean so I get the right edition. Then on 25 July come on over to Aussie Owned and vote for your favourite! The winner gets bragging rights.

Here are a few gorgeous covers to get you started.

Divergent  Order of the Phoenix

The Fault in Our Stars     Raven Boys

The Sky is Everywhere

Beautiful Disaster

  3. A couple of nominations from Twitter, via Dahlia Adler:

    “Ooh well it’s not out til March but I LOVE the cover of SIDE EFFECTS MAY VARY by Julie Murphy. On the pubbed side, the whole Covenant series by Jennifer Armentrout, especially HALF-BLOOD. So stunning!”

    Posting them here so I don’t lose them. :p
