Some of My favorite Illustrated Book Covers / #toptentuesday 225

After recently having done a Book Cover Freebie for Top Ten Tuesday (as always, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) which I focused on 2019 covers, I realized I would also just really love to share with you some of the illustrated covers I have been really loving.

This week’s topic of book hangover does not really work for me since I don’t really have book hangovers like that. So it just seemed like the best time to throw this in the mix.

Middle Grade

ttt 225 mg

Die Duftaphotheke / A Pinch of Magic / Worldquacke Sequence / Nevermoor/Fortunately the Milk

Young Adult

ttt 225 ya

Seraphina / Tess of the Road / 9 From the Nine Worlds / The Hidden Oracle/ The Whispering Skull / Iskari (Dutch Covers) / Howl’s Moving Castle / Firebird


ttt 225 adult

Enchanted Inc / Realm of the Elderlings / Priory of the Orange Tree / The Bone Ships / Uprooted /Spinning Silver / Gods of Jade and Shadow

I find it interesting to note that I seem to have different preferences per age category. With middle grade I am all for the very adventure seeking, active covers. With YA I still like them to display adventure but they are less dynamic. And for my adult covers I like white a lot with more scenery or a lone image on it.

  1. I’m absolutely loving all of these covers 😍 I’ve been realising lately that I’m such a sucker for so many of the MG book covers and that’s 100% the reason why I end up gravitating towards them in the first place. Also, the Firebird series are some of my favourite covers–the colours though 💞 Great post!

  2. Prachtige selectie. Ik denk dat ik bij volwassen boeken vooral fan ben van het styllistische zoals die mooie cover van Uprooted. Bij jeugdboeken vind ik het betoverende dan weer net heel fijn of de dromerige illustraties van Benjamin Lacombe. De cover van Heroine Worship vond ik trouwens ook heel leuk getekend en dat was dan weer iets helemaal anders.
