#SixforSunday – Six Favourite Covers

Why are all of these SO hard? Choosing just six covers is tricky SO I’ve picked ones that I currently have in my TBR pile!

I am one of those people who will wander round Waterstones plucking books off the shelf just based on their cover alone. There’s no rhyme or reason to it either – some covers just stand out to me on that day. I could look at the exact same shelf the next day and other covers will shout out to me; it’s all based on mood!

So, based on my current mood today and what’s sat in my TBR pile, here are my top 6:

1) Oh My Gods – Alexandra Sheppard

Cover Illustration: Paul Oakley

Bright, bold and exciting this cover stands out on any shelf!

2) Breathe – Sarah Crossan

Cover Design: Christian Fuenfhausen

I love a dystopia-style book and this cover screamed out at me for that reason!

3) Charlie Changes into a Chicken – Sam Copeland

Illustrated by Sarah Horne

It’s glittery, it’s shiny, it has orange sprayed edges. Plus, I loved the previous two!

4) Pine – Francine Toon

Jacket design by Beci Kelly

Simple, clean but draws your eye in. Plus, a ‘signed by the author’ sticker is always a welcome sight on a cover!

5) Orphans of the Tide – Struan Murray

Illustrations by Manuel Sumberac

There’s so much detail on this cover which gives you an inkling about what the story will be about. I’m already captured by the tale…

6) Big Bones – Laura Dockrill

Cover Illustration by Laura Callaghan

I saw this on the shelf and put it straight in my basket without even reading the back. Then, when I did read the blurb, I wasn’t disappointed. This looks like a brilliant story.

And there you have it! If you asked me again tomorrow I suspect my favourite covers of the day would be very different!
