Covers, covers, covers. I love covers. I have to admit, as much as I try not to, I do judge books by their covers a lot. I am much more likely to pick up a book in a shop if it has a really eye-catching or unusual cover. I figured since I like contemps, and I like covers, I'd show you some of my favourite contemp covers! Enjoy :).
Because the moustache is hilarious! And because traffic lights are unusual things to have on a cover. But how awesome do they look, against that creepy smokey background?
Because I want to eat the heart cookie. And because the snowy city makes it feel like Christmas.
Because I would like to be that girl standing behind the painting and because I love covers that are part drawing part real life!
Because I'm a bit morbid, and that grave intrigues me. And because that mask is awesome (and I think there's blood splattered on her arms...)
Because it's so cool and colourful and eye-catching! And because a road trip detour looks like a lot of fun.
Because those sunglasses are AWESOME. And you can see stuff reflected in them. And because I wish my garden/neighbour/fence looked like that.
Because it's just so...spy-y! And I like green apples. And because I love the colours and the rain and the green jacket!
Because I think it's impressive to make a swing look that creepy. And because it makes me feel like baking!
Because yellow should be used more! And I love how they're holding a map for the title. And because it's supermegafoxyawesomehot! And everyone knows red telephone boxes are just amazing.
Another case of drawings mixed with real life objects. Love the little vase the most :). And because HOW adorable is that binocular smile?
So colourful! Awesome t-shirt and cool sunglasses! And because she's floating in the sky, which is awesome.
Because it makes me believe airports aren't that bad (even though I know the are :P). And because that is the cutest marshmallow snowman I have EVER seen :).
