YA Wednesday - Favorite Book Covers

Don't judge a book by its cover...blah, blah, blah.  I may not judge the book, but I absolutely judge the cover (how can you not?) and this month there are a couple really cool YA book jackets that caught my eye.  Below are the hot January covers and a couple faves from last year. What is your favorite YA cover?  Tell us here on Omni or add a link to your book of choice in a comment on our Facebook page so we can check 'em out.

 

Crash   Crash by Lisa McMann--the first in a new 4-book series, Jules is having a recurring vision that she can't get away from and it's not pretty...

 The jacket has this great pearly-foil treatment and the eye filled with a city on fire (remember that recurring vision?) looks incredible.  Here is a close-up of the eye:

PaperValentine

 

One of our Best YA books of January--I think I would have had to pick this up no matter what because the cover is both beautiful and haunting. I say nicely done for giving a little hint about the fabulously creepy story inside:

Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff--it's one of the hottest summers on record and Hannah has a lot going on between the constant presence of her best friend--who died six months before, a bad boy with a heart of gold who sets off sparks when they meet, and The Valentine Killer who has started murdering young girls in their town. Again.

 

 

 

Cinder 

 Cinder by Marissa Meyer was a Best Teen Books pick when it came out a year ago and for a cyborg Cinderella story I think the red stiletto with that tattoo make this one of the most memorable covers (and books) of 2012.

 The next book from Marissa Meyer, Scarlett is coming in February--can you guess which fairy tale this one is about?

 If there were a prize for best trilogy covers I would give it to the Matched series :

Jessica Therrien's Oppression - and the upcoming sequel Uprising - have gorgeous covers.

Any of Jessica Sorensen's books! They really compliment the stories she tells!
