Best Book Covers of 2012

Swoony Boys Podcast Top 10 of 2012 Young Adult Best Books We've Read
We’re ending the year teaming up with the lovely ladies at Fiktshun, A Life Bound By Books, Confessions of a Bookaholic, Two Chicks on Books, and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads to feature our Top 10 Favorites all week long. Today, it’s all about cover love.

Stop by tomorrow to see our favorite debuts of 2012.

This list was a lot harder for us to make. We both admit to being huge cover h00rs and easily get drawn into all the pretty covers. Ultimately, we decided to break it up into two lists–books we’ve read and books we haven’t read yet. The rules for this post were that the book must have been released in 2012. So here goes:

Best Book Covers of 2012 (for Books We’ve Read)


Black City by Elizabeth Richards The Boy Recession by Flynn Meaney Daylight Saving by Edward Hogan Glass Heart by Amy Garvey If I Lie by Corrine Jackson Incarnate by Jodi Meadows Insurgent by Veronica Roth Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo The Selection by Kiera Cass The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E Smith
