In no particular order, here are my favorites:
Soulless by Gail Carriger. I love this one because it truly captures the character and the grey background really gives a fell of foggy London streets.
When you are engulfed in flames by David Sedaris. It is just awesome.
A skeleton smoking. Book is hilarious, too.
Deathnote by Tsugumi Ohba. the placements of the characters
on the cover gives clues to the dynamic between them. I love the crazy way
the title goes across the cover.
Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher. I love the sickly green on this cover. The street depicted behind Harry has a real feel of abandonment. Also it’s an interesting
pose like he’s just heard a noise behind him and is turning to look.
Nightlife by Rob Thurman. So this cover is done by the same artist who does the Dresden covers. I picked it up for that reason then it turned out to be a great book.
Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I don’t know why, but I love this one.
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff. It’s really creepy. Sharp metal objects hanging over a baby carriage. The smokey background reminds
me of the "Silent Hill" video games.
The Snowman by Jo Nesbo. I like the way this cover reminds me of a kidnapper’s ransom note without being cut out letters. And the small blood stain is a
great clue to the kind of mystery you are going to get.
Slice of Cherry by Dia Reeves. I haven’t read this one yet, but I will, based solely on the cover. Bloody Tea cups. Hopefully it is not about English vampires.
And now some bonuses:
What about you? Do you have a favorite book cover? Does it influence what you read?
