Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Illustrated Covers


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme by The Artsy Reader. This week’s topic is a cover freebie! This week, I’ve decided to make a compilation of my favorite illustrated romance covers. Illustrated romance covers has been a growing trend over the last couple of years – one that I love. I much prefer illustrated covers to real people on a cover.

  1. I’m very into the illustrated cover trend! Hoping it hangs out a while. Also, Jen’s covers are dang cute, and “Tweet Cute” is another favorite. 🙂

  2. I LOVE illustrated covers. They always make me stop and check out a book I might not have picked up otherwise. I read almost all of the books above, ONLY Cactus and FanGirl I haven’t read yet.

  3. I recently saw both The Cactus and Red, White, and Royal Blue at the used bookstore and like a dumby passed on them both. I’ll have to acquire them soon because they are essential for the beauty of my shelves haha 🙂 Great post!

  4. I’m loving the trend of actual illustrations on book covers too (not just romance.) For years it was mostly stock photos meant to represent the main character which always seemed lazy. 🙂

  5. I have a soft spot for illustrated covers and it’s one bookish trend that I will happily back and you’ve reminded me of how much I enjoyed Fangirl. I’ve read some amazing things about Red, White, and Royal Blue and I cannot wait to get my hands on that book. Brilliant post. 😀
