All-Time Coolest Fantasy Book Covers


Hey, young bloods! Today, I'm linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday (which I really should do more often?? wtf Ellie??). This week's prompt is anything about book covers, so today I'm sharing my favorite fantasy book covers!



8. Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater - I'm not a fan of most Stiefvater covers, but this one really speaks to me for some reason. I love how artfully obvious the brushstrokes are <3


7. Merrick by Anne Rice - This cover is so striking in its stark simplicity!


6. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab - For some reason, I really hate the US covers of this series?? But those UK covers. Man oh man.


5. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valante - This is such an beautifully old-fashioned looking book; it looks like the kind of thing someone put serious time and love into creating.


4. Exiles by Jaye L. Knight - This isn't coming out until July (cry), but lOOK AT THE GORGEOUSNESS.


3. Windwitch by Susan Dennard - Although this book itself was pretty underwhelming, that cover nearly gave me a heart attack when it was released. lOOK AT IT.


2. Trick by Natalia Jaster - Like Merrick, the beautiful simplicity of this cover is what really strikes me. Also, how cool does that title look?!


1. The Thief Who Pulled on Trouble's Braids by Michael McClung - liTERALLY LOOK AT THIS. I'M DYING. OH MY GOD.

  2. I think my favorite HAS to be The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making. But...WHAT IS UP WITH THAT NAME??? I mean, don't get me wrong--I love it! But it's so LOOOOOOOONG??? I must read it now... I am all the intrigue...

    All of these covers made me drool, though... I LOVE book covers!!! And this post was amazingly awesome!!! Eek!

  3. I love all of these covers, but I think my favorite is Windwitch. It's just so dreamy and pretty....bummer that you didn't end up enjoying it more tho. That's always a giant letdown. Great list!

  7. THESE ARE SO BEAUTIFUL I CAN'T EVEN. Obviously I'm addicted to all the Raven boys covers but BLLB is definitely my ultimate favourite. *pets it and loves it and marries it at dawn* 😍😍 And I actually love BOTH versions of the ADSOM series...hehhhhh. Or maybe I'm just obsessed with the stories. Who can know.

  10. Do you like the cover for Windwitch more than Truthwitch? I think I'm more for Truthwitch.

    1. I do prefer Windwitch, simply because I think the Truthwitch cover sexualized Safiya a lil bit. It had some cool colors, though!
