Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blogging meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is your favorite/least fave trends in YA covers.
My favorite recent cover trend is the close-up portrait. The’re always of girls, and often feature alterations, designs, or magical elements along with the portrait. You get a really good idea of what genre the book is and what the feel of the book might b. Having such a detailed portrait of the girl on the cover really creates a connection between the reader and the book, before they even open it up and start reading.
