Cool Covers

If you've been reading some of my book reviews then you'll notice that I am a sucker for a great book cover. I get annoyed when covers are misleading. For instance, a book with a girl by a pool when a pool is never mentioned in the story. Alternatively, I love when a book cover is given greater meaning after reading the story. That and just the color, the texture....I just love a good book cover.

So while Rachel and I were at the book expo we found a publisher whose covers I LOVE.

Europa Editions

Check out some of my favorites:

Ok. How cool are these? And I really like their titles. I haven't read any of them but I really want to. Have you read any Europa Editions books?


  1. the covers are lovely. I have a thing for covers too and they have a big influence over the books I purchase.

  2. i love great covers (even if the book isn't the greatest) LOL where did you find these? very cool

  3. those are cool covers. I've never heard of any of those books.

  4. Those are great! Love the design. I too am a sucker for book covers. I don't generally mind if the book cover has anything to do with the story if it is a cool cover. However, if it is cool and does manage to reflect something of the story, I am really thrilled.

  5. The cover for The Most Beautiful Book in the World is great- it makes reading look sexy!

  6. How ironic - a coworker of mine was just finishing "The Elegance of the Hedgehog" the other day and showed it to me. And then I see it here on your blog, just days later! It must be a sign...guess I'll have to add it to my TBR list.
