It was a lot easier to find covers with Big Ben on them than you would think it would be, even when sticking mostly to sci-fi and fantasy. I mean, I knew this would be a topic at some point, so I started bookmarking any covers I stumbled on with Big Ben, so that made it easy when it came time to make the post, but still, there are more out there than I would’ve thought!
Anyway, I’ve never been to London or England or even Europe, so I don’t really have anything to say about Big Ben. So I’ll just stop talking now and let you enjoy the pretty covers!

Books Covers featuring Big Ben
Supernatural Freak Series by Louisa Klein
The book itself was too much on the chick lit side for my tastes, but the covers are still pretty!
Inconceivable by Tegan Wren
I’ve always thought this cover was pretty in an artsy way. I’ve also always just liked collages, and that’s what it looks like.
The Jekyll Revelation by Robert Masello
This one isn’t particularly exciting, but it does set a tone, and I like how the worn, dirty look of the font matches the rest.
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
There are about a million covers for Peter Pan, but I didn’t feel like going through all of them. These two will have to suffice :-P
The Ruby Red Trilogy by Kerstin Gier
These are just pretty, and I kind of want all of her dresses.
City of Fae by Pippa DaCosta
This one is bright and eye-catching, plus the colors make for nice contrast.
The Heartless City by Andrea Berthot
Even though I loved the original cover for this book, this new one has grown on me. It’s pretty, and I like the worn, historical feel.
The Carnival Keepers by Amber Gulley
This one is so, like, *SPLASH*! Did that make sense to anyone else? I like the colors and the whole design.
Surviving the Evacuation: London by Frank Tayell
I like how you can tell it’s a zombie book, and it’s got that dreary, apocalyptic look, but it’s also pretty and uses a cool perspective with the sign in the foreground and whatnot.
Incarnation by Emmma Cornwall
Honestly, I’m not sure I have a favorite for this topic? But I have always loved this cover. Her outfit is just FANTASTIC, and I love how the red stands out against the blue, and it all looks professional and nice.
