Top 5 Tuesday: Top Covers of 2019 (thus far!)

This week I decided to switch back over and participate in Top 5 Tuesday, hosted by BionicBookworm!

This week's topic is: Top 5 covers of 2019

This is a particularly difficult task since I've read a hundred books already this year and a lot of them have had some truly beautiful covers! I wasn't sure if I should go off of 2019 releases or all books I've read this year, so to make it easier I decided to go with only 2019 releases (and of course I'm only sticking to books I've already read because if I opened this up to unread also, well...chaos would like y ensure.)

A few of my favorites (in no particular order):

The Grand Dark
The Grand Dark by Richard Kadrey

The House of Sacrifice (Empires of Dust #3)
House of Sacrifice by Anna Smith Spark

Darkdawn (The Nevernight Chronicle, #3)
Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff

Wilder Girls
Wilder Girls by Rory Power

The Hod King by Josiah Bancroft

The runner-ups (which are really just as beautiful)!
The Unlikely Escape of Uriah HeepGods of Jade and Shadow
The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep by H.G. Parry
Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Sword and Pen by Rachel Caine

And a sneak peak to a beautiful 2020 release cover....

What do you think of these books and their covers? What are some of your favorite covers from 2019 releases this year?


  1. Oooh... The Grand Dark and The House of Sacrifice look good!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  2. There have been so many good covers this year. It would be hard to narrow down. I do think Wilder Girls is an awesome one. I have that to read next too haha :)

  3. I really like The Grand Dark cover!

  4. These are all wonderful covers. I agree, picking five favorites would be a daunting task!

  5. So many gorgeous covers. I especially love the one for Gods of Jade and Shadow.

  6. OKAY, honestly, all of these are SO BEYOND BEAUTIFUL. I think my favourites are the detailing of Wilder Girls and Dark Dawn, but then cover design as a whole for Gods of Jade and Shadow is SO breathtaking. The colour combos kill me in the best possible way. Ah, just ALL OF THESE cause me to burst into spontaneous heart-eyes.

  7. I love the UK covers for the Nevernight series. I've only read Nevernight so far but I really liked it :)
    The Wilder Girls cover is gorgeous!

  8. I LOVE the cover of House of Sacrifice!!
