Top Five Friday (2): Book Covers

Top Five Friday is a weekly meme hosted at Katieemay which lists our top 5 choices based on a bookish theme.

This week's theme is top 5 YA book covers, and they are in no order because it was hard enough to limit it to 5! I feel as though I've left out so many amazing ones but here's my favourites as of today.
Apollyon (Covenant #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout: I absolutely love the bright and beautiful but dark covers so this is pure perfection. The black background makes the orange flame show up beautifully and it's vibrancy immediately catches your eye. I know I've already said it already... twice... but this cover is truly beautiful!

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge: This cover is so damn gorgeous! I love how the staircases wind together with the rose petals, it creates a depth which is ever present in the story. You can immediately tell that it is a fairy tale retelling, and truth be told I read it more for the cover than this fact!
Heaven (Halo #3) by Alexandra Adornetto: A lot of authors overdo their covers trying to cram in different aspects of their book, but Adornetto stuck with a simple prospect for her cover; and this simplicity is what makes it so stunning. The heart shaping the sun in the center is a great focal point and captures your attention, until of course you see the wings which are breathtakingly detailed. If only the story was as good *sigh*.

Breathe (Breathe #1) by Sarah Crossan: This is the perfect example of a cover made with shades of the same colour which look stunning lined up on your shelf. But not only that, you can actually see what the book is going to be about with the cracked ground outside a city in a bubble (the title also helps I'll admit), and if you're the kind of person who doesn't read the synopsis (aka crazy (no offense)) you can understand part of the story while looking at something pretty :D.
Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1) by Robin LaFevers: Once again this cover is a clear indication for the book's content. I mean come on, she has a fucking crossbow! What else could it be but a bad-ass female assassin? This cover is simply awesome, and a nice twist to the typical pretty girl pouting that's been on so many YA books recently.

Leave a comment with what you think I should base my Top Five on next week.
