Top 10 of 2019: Cover Love (Favorite Covers)

Posted December 28, 2019 by Lisa Mandina in / 7 Comments

Top 10 of 2019 is hosted once again by Kimberly Faye Reads, and this year she has a co-host Ginger @greadsbooks.   So today’s topic is a fun one, but a hard one!  There may be a couple of the numbers on this list that include more than one book, maybe a series, since that is the best way I could do this.


The librarian and book lover in me adored the covers for the Green Valley Library series from the SmartyPants Romance books this fall.  They had the library card background for each of the different faces with different beards/mustaches/hairstyles.  And at least one of the books even had each chapter based on a Dewey Decimal number/category matched to what was happening.


While the story itself didn’t blow me away as much as I’d hoped, that cover, wow!  And if you’ve seen the cover to the second book, they’re not backing down on awesomeness!


Now this is one I haven’t read, but I loved the cover so much I went ahead and am sharing it.  Because I honestly wasn’t sure what it was at first, and it took me awhile, I don’t know why, to realize it was a girl’s head!


Again with the SmartyPants Romance books, I loved the covers of the Donner Bakery series as well!


So, I love all the covers of the books in the Winston Brothers series, and I’ve read all but I think one or two of the earlier ones, and one or two of them I’ve read in past years, but I had to share all of them.  I was lucky enough to get this magnet set at Book Bonanza back in August as well.

Hmm, I’m seeing a trend of beards on my favorite covers this year, did you notice that?


I kind of like the new trend of kind of comic-ish looking covers, and this series definitely had that!


A great story with a great cover!


Again, a great story with a great cover.


Again, this is totally the librarian/bookseller in me adoring this picture!  Plus it totally reminds me of the movie The Mummy.


I just really like the way the basketball is peeking out of a heart-shaped “tear” in the paper/cover of the book.

What do you think of my cover choices?  Would you agree on any?  What covers blew you away this year?

  1. I think the Bookworm Crush is a very cute cover, and it plays up the bookish nature of the heroine. Penny Reid always has interesting covers, and I think she designs them, no?
