There’s a stereotype about young adult covers: that they all involve a girl (often with her face obscured), wearing a ballgown and looking gorgeous. And I love a ballgown cover as much as the next girl—maybe even more, looking at my favourite covers on my Pinterest account. But there are a ton of YA covers out there that don’t have people on them at all!
I collected some nominations over at my personal blog (here, if you’re curious to see who picked what). The rules were that animals were okay, but people weren’t—not even an eye or a blurry face. We also had a couple of nominations for multiple books by the same author; in those cases, I picked my favourite to show you here.
Please, have a look and vote at the bottom for your favourite. (They are listed in alphabetical order by title, if you’re wondering!)
*NB Graceling has been removed from the poll because there was an eye reflected in the sword’s blade.
Voting ends at 11.59pm, Sydney time, on 31 July. The results will be posted on 1 August. 🙂
