Top Ten Favorite Book Covers of 2011

I must admit, I am a cover HOOR. (And if you scan to the pics below, you'll notice I'm a fan of tatts, 6-packs, and sculpted hawt bods)

If I see a cover that makes me cringe, I typically don't pick it up. If the cover makes mah girly bits shiver, it's a given that I will pick it up and read the blurb on the back.

The first thing we see is what draws our attention, right? A picture is worth a thousand words, and blah, blah, blah...

But, honestly--it's what in between the pages that makes me come back, especially with a new author. One friend defines these types of books as "Hot With Plot", and I totally agree.

Today's Top Ten focuses on book covers--and since I read many different genres, I decided to split it up into 2 different categories:  Young Adult and Adult.

Here are my Top 10 picks for the year 2011 in Adult Romance:

1.  Hearts In Darkness ~ Laura Kaye (READ)

I swear I bought this only because of the tatts--and rated it a 5 Star read on my blog. Awesome novella.

2.  Hidden Away  ~ Maya Banks (READ)

He has a very nice, er...gun. And the sweat look totally works for him.

3.  Rock Hard ~ Olivia Cunning (READ)

Jeans and sans shirt? YUMMY-The title is a very apt description, no?

4.  Blood Rights ~ Kristen Painter (READ)

Shocker, no nekked man...but my eyes were immediately captured by this original cover.

5.  Changing The Game ~ Jaci Burton (READ)

Two words for you ladies--Jed Hill. 

6.  Drink Deep ~ Chloe Neill (READ)

This is an example of how I love my heroines--KICK ASS! 

7.  Second Grave On The Left ~ Darynda Jones (READ)

I swear, its the wardrobe--Charley Davidson shops at DEMONS R US--Kewl.

8.  Devil Without A Cause ~ Terri Garey (READ)

Again, jeans sans shirt--and a kick-ass leather duster **shivers**

9.  Belong To Me ~ Shayla Black  (READ)

Love the pose, the color and lighting---and its damn sexy.

10. Mesmerized ~ Lauren Dane (TBR pile)

UNGH--my tongue stuck to the roof of my mouth and I forgot how to speak when I saw this--Cammies-ripped wife beater, sliver of muscled abs playing peek-a-boo with my uterus...GAH!

  9. Jay--thanks for stopping by. I read the ARC of Changing the Game and loved it. I related to it with the fact that my father also had heart surgery--so I felt that Jaci did a fantastic job capturing that emotion.
