  1. That cover for No Place To Fall is gorgeous! Makes me want to read the book even more.

  2. Ever since I first saw them I’ve thought the covers of Hope is a Ferris Wheel and Ava Lavender were super pretty. And, I’ve always LOVED the typography on the cover of Everything Leads to You. Too pretty, I cant. GREAT LIST!

    My Top Ten Tuesday!

  3. First of all, I love that you thought to place a picture frame border around each of your choices. That is such a cute touch! I’m currently kicking myself for failing to include a few of the covers you’ve chosen on my own list this week, particularly Everything Leads To You, which I think is absolutely stunning. From the colour palette to the use of typography, that’s an image I would be more than happy to have framed as a print. Although I hadn’t seen them before today, I’m also really taken with the covers for Bird and Hope Is A Ferris Wheel.

    These are all such wonderful choices, Lucy, and I love the way you’ve arranged them! 🙂

    You have got some beautiful covers on your list. I love the cover of Bird. So simple, yet really effective!

    Some definite lovelies. Ava Lavendar and Everything Leads to You were on my short list. Hope is a Ferris Wheel looks amazing (the cover), but I haven’t even heard of this book! Great pieces of art you chose 🙂

    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday.

  6. Some of these I wouldn’t have expected them to look that rad with just the idea of having them framed–but with the addition of those actual borders/frames… I can totally see why they’d work! Great decision on the addition, it really sells it :D!

    Be-U-ti-FUL. I like the surreal aspect to Bird a lot.

  10. BermudaOnion says:

    They all look lovely in their frames.

  11. Candice says:

    These are perfect!!! I especially like Hope is a Ferris Wheel and Nowhere But Home. Too bad they don’t make book covers for us to use as art! Other than just sitting them around our houses. 🙂

  12. Caitie F says:

    I LOVE the covers of Bird and Hope is a Ferris Wheel. Those designers are brilliant.

  13. I love Smart! I would hang that on my wall!

  14. There are so many pretty covers on your list today! That Ferris Wheel one is absolutely gorgeous! I’m not a fan of the No Place to Fall one though. It looks cool, but it reminds me too much of one of the covers to Paper Towns which I have mixed feelings about. haha 🙂

  15. Kristin says:

    These are all so stunning! I need to get my hands on Hope is a Ferris Wheel!

  16. So I haven’t read any of these books, but I love all the covers. Especially bird. I’m a big fan of simple covers.
