This week’s topic is hearts! And if you thought I was really crazy enough to base my post on actual, realistic-looking hearts rather than the cutesy heart shape… you would be correct ;-) Ten points to your Hogwarts House. And also ten points to Ravenclaw because this is my blog and I say so.
Anyway, I did use some with cutesy heart shapes, but I also used some with realistic-type hearts because that just seemed like more fun and more fitting for the types of covers that I like. So if you’re super squeamish, this is your warning (although there’s only one cover that looks particularly realistic). The rest of you, enjoy!
Heart of Thorns by Nicolette Andrews
This one looks all magical. I like the floating, glowy heart.
Risen by Cole Gibsen
The colors and the heart-shaped tree and the whole ominous, desolate look make this cover so striking!
Rasputin’s Supernatural Dating Service by David D. Hammons
This cover is just a lot of fun!
The Other Lamb by Katie Young
I actually like the realism of this one. (Is that actually a real heart? An animal heart, maybe?) It’s a very striking, attention-grabbing cover.
Time Weaver: Heart of Cogs by Jacinta Maree
That is a heart in her hands, right? This whole cover is just super interesting and pretty though, including the colors!
Ripper by Becca C Smith
Simple, but pretty, and such a nice shade of purple.
Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff
This one is a different style than the others, but no less interesting, and the red really pops.

The Passionate Queen by Jovee Winters
So much red! And all the covers in this series are stunning.
My Favorite #2:
Nefertiti’s Heart by A.W. Exley
This one is so pretty and unique with the steampunk, mechanical look of the heart!
My Favorite #3:
Heartsnare by Steven B. Williams
This is the most minimalistic one of the bunch, and technically it doesn’t have a heart on it (just an outline of one), but I think this cover is great! It’s so striking, and the colors and the crows and the thorniness of the vine things give it a dark feel. And the outline of the heart looks super cool.
