As many books as there are out in the world, that’s how many cover options exist. From a young age we’re always told not to judge a book by its cover–but it’s the cover that’ll grab your attention, whether in a good way or in a cringe-worthy way. Today’s Top Ten is all about both the things I love on covers and cover trends that make me cringe.

Movie tie-ins are probably the one thing I cannot stand about covers. BUT these are the ones that I think did it right.
