Road Trip Wednesday #14: Book Covers You Love

Welcome to our 14th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the question on your own blog and leave a link in the comments. We'll be adding our own links here throughout the day!

Topic #14: What are your favorite book covers?

Kirsten: "If my cover could be a blend of Sea and Hold Still, I would erupt into spontaneous backflips..."

Kristin M: "Covers that are complicated and rich and full are my favorites . . ."

Kaitlin: "I am very easily enticed..."

: "I'm a sucker for a good cover..."

Kristin O: "I love it so much that I can barely form a coherent critique of it..."

Michelle: " I could waste hours browsing Amazon for awesome book covers..."

Leila: "For me, the best covers are the ones that drop a few mysterious and wonderful hints..."

Kate: "I have no explanation other than armadillos are funny."
Road Trip Song of the Week:
"Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen

Last but not least, we've decided to announce the following week's question each week. This will help you (and us!) get a head start on next Wednesday's topic.

February 3rd's topic: What's the Next Big Thing in YA?
(feel free to go wild with this one...)

Kirsten Hubbard

Kirsten is the author of Like Mandarin, Wanderlove, and the middle grade novel Watch the Sky.

  1. I'm the first.... if no one else comments before me of course. :)

    I love this topic. Sort of went wild then had to cut my list to five...

  2. Teehee. Love that you guys used one of my old posts. Thanks!!! *goes to read everyone else's posts*

  3. I love this topic! So much, in fact, that I have already blogged about this TWICE. So, instead of writing a third post on the same topic (and especially since the last one was only 2 days ago), I will just link to those posts.

    Here are some covers I adore.

    Here are some books I have bought/will buy largely based on the covers.

    Ah...I love wonderful covers.

  4. Ooh, nice topic. There are so many pretty covers to ogle!

    My first Road Trip Wednesday:

  5. Posted them here!

  6. You guys sure know how to pick 'em. :) Check out my response here please:

  7. Interesting question- took me a minute to come up with some answers, but I scraped by :) Check out my response here:

  8. Took me a minute to think of some answers too, but once I did I couldn't STOP thinking of examples!

    I eventually narrowed it down to ten...

  9. Until I get on the ball about reading more YA this year, all you're going to get from this post is adult romance. LOL Have a look-see

  10. This is a fun question, so I think that I'll add my first comment to this site.
