MsBuff’s Bout of Books mini-challenge for today is to share your favorite cover and/or the funniest cover you’ve seen. Here are a few of my faves!
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: 75th Anniversary edition. I got this for Christmas, and it looks way more gorgeous in real life. The insides of the covers have Thorin’s map and a smaller-scale map of Mirkwood and surrounding lands. It’s awesome.
Conrad’s Fate by Diana Wynne Jones. DWJ’s books don’t always get great covers, but when they do, they’re damn fabulous. This is my ultimate favorite.
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan. I generally hate YA covers with photos, models, photomanips, etc. The new-ish silhouette trend makes me incredibly happy, and Unspoken has my favorite so far.
