9) The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig

8) Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn

7) Mystical Warrior by  Janet Chapman

6) Lakota Love Song by Madeline Baker

5) Twilight by Stephanie Meyer (I bought this when it first came out, I thought the cover was cool and my friend told me it was "an okay book", who would have thought?)

4) Lily of the Nile by Stephanie Dray

9, 8, and 4 are some of my favorite covers. I am completely bummed that they haven changed the cover styles of the Pink Carnation books.

I love the Kushiel covers. Never read any of them, but their covers have made me want to!

P.S. I have a giveaway up for The Crown in the Heather! Go enter!

Blodeuedd, yeah, usually the cover draws me and then I read the back and want it. =D

Svea, I love those covers too! I kind of like the classic "painting" look and I agree. I'm bummed that they changed the cover styles.

Allison, me too! They are so fancy and cool looking. I read the first one. I didn't like it that much but I have a lot of hope for the next book in the series (you can read my review for it). And OF COURSE i'll join in on your giveaway!
