  1. Love the Vintage National Parks collection covers because I’ve been to some of the places and dream of going to the others. Love the cover of The Heart Between Us because I loved that book. After reading the book, the cover just jumps at our with meaning. Love all the covers – so pretty! I do like this type of cover. It’s imaginative and makes you think more or at least I do.

    Can’t wait to read “Wooing Cadie McCaffrey” by Bethany Turner. Adorable cover and I can see where everything shown would be use to woo someone. On top of that pink always catches my eye. 🙂

  2. I do enjoy the illustrated covers, especially All Things Bright and Strange. I like these covers because artists can show us more details that hint about the books and get me intrigued. And there are only so many covers I can take with women in dresses.


  3. Definitely noticing an increasing in the illustrated covers and not complaining one bit, love them! My fave from this post are where the fire falls and bookishly ever after


  4. I’m starting to see the illustrated covers more and more. I think it’s a nice change of pace for romances. Very adorable. And trust me, when you have to go traipsing through stock photos for a couple to use on the cover, this alternative grows even more appealing. Lol


  5. I think the illustrated covers are a nice change, but I like a lot of different types of covers. Variety is the spice of life!


  6. I love the illustrated covers. They immediately catch my attention and make me want to pick that book up and start reading.


  7. I like some of the covers but others don’t give any idea of the story, which I find a very helpful aspect of a book cover. I do like the Karen Barnett ones.


  8. I’ve certainly noticed the shift. I am a fan to a certain degree – I find a lot of them to be quite similar looking. The vintage national parks style and the What Blooms from Dust stuck out to me, though! I like those both a lot ?
