From the Forums: I’mma Let You Finish, but This Is the Best Book Cover of All Time

What’s the best book cover of all time? That was the question last week on the forums, and we got all types of answers. Some of you love childhood classics, others celebrate minimalism–but most of you can’t narrow down your favorites!

Kelly O’Connor says: “It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini. I loved this book cover because it’s eye catching and not like most run-of-the-mill young-adult covers. Also, the cover shows kind of what the main character draws as his “brain maps”. It captures the essence of the book perfectly.”


Samantha Misasi, like many other Figs, says: “Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. It’s breathtaking.”




Wither and Fever were popular answers, too. Annabella writes: “My favorite book cover of all time would be Fever by Lauren Destafano. With all the intricate lines and the drunken-looking but still desiring-love girl on the cover, not only does it draw me in, but I immediately feel as if I have shared a private moment with that girl. That she needs me to read her story, so I can understand her and be with her.”


Kayt Hinman picks a new release: “I’ve actually thought a lot about covers while writing my own books… my favorite cover has got to be The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. It’s so simple yet elegant.”



G.Lightning cites the ever eye-catching: “Zombies vs Unicorns.
