Top 10 of 2013: Best Covers of 2013

Welcome to day 2 of the Top 10 of 2013, hosted by Rachel @ FiktshunJaime @ Two Chicks On BooksLisa @ A Life Bound By Books, and Mindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads! Join this event and share all the bookish awesomeness from 2013.

Today is one of my favorite covers and today I get to share my favorite from the year 2013! Yes I am one of those people that judges a book by its cover. Let's be honest here, we all know that we eat with our eyes first! Ha! Okay, cheesy I know, but after all I do call myself the devourer. Ready to see what covers made the cut? I know I am....

Just a note all the covers featured on my list are also books I have read in 2013 except for one (I will tell you about it when I get there). 

1. Endure (The Protector #4) by M.R. Merrick 

I know no one is surprised this one made the list. 
But just look at that cover! It is absolutely gorgeous and fits perfectly with the story. I just love all the covers for this series. M.R. Merrick has some of my favorite all time covers.

2. Wings of Nestor (Solus #3) by Devri Walls

Do I really need to explain why this one made my list? I mean come on just look at that cover!
It's magical, breathtaking and gives the appearance of movement. And who wouldn't want
to get to know the guy on the cover?!

3. Sweet Escape (Sweet #2) by Bailey Ardisone

Gorgeous right?! Breathtaking, elegant and serene!

4. The Witch's Eye (Blood Skies #5) by Steven Montano

I love this cover. Smokey, gorgeous and mesmerizing. The eye draws you in and doesn't
let you go. Absolutely fitting of the story within!

5. In the Blood by Sara Hantz

The cover is very haunting and full of emotion. The minute I saw it
I knew I had to know the story and it didn't
disappoint either.

6. Defiance (Affliction #3) by Raven 

*sigh* I was so happy when I saw this cover, finally Dean (the hot guy on the cover, 
who is also the best vampire hunter around) was getting a cover
dedicated to him!!! *le sigh* 
Look at him? I wouldn't mess with him, not if I were a vampire anyway! ;)

7. Psion Alpha (Psion #4) by Jacob Gowans

I love this cover. It's edgy, dark and screams danger, like a warning sign. 
I have not read this book yet, but I have read and 
loved every other book in the series. I will read this one very, very soon!

8. Semblance (The Midnight Society #1) by Logan Patricks

I really don't know what to say about this one other than wow! It is so different.
How many other people put a woman as a diamond?
I love the symbolism that she represents, just beautiful, like the story within.

9. Immortal Heart (Few Are Angels 0.5) by Inger Iversen

Heart-stirring, dark, sort of creepy, stunning!

10. Death of the Mad Hatter by Sarah J Pepper

This one is quirky and fun. It is totally different and is Wonderland!
