Pardon us for getting a bit shallow today. Normally we're not ones to judge a book by its cover, but... we blame the heat for frying our brains! We also blame the pretty for blinding us to reason. Because these covers? Are so, SO pretty.

Alternate title for this post: "Trend-spotting: Typographic Beauties."

The Chaos of Stars White Space (Dark Passages, #1) How to Love House of Ivy & Sorrow

All of these books have permission to join our bookshelf. Or heck, our walls! They're practically art.

We also love when series have covers that tie together. Such as these lovelies...

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1) The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2) The Archived (The Archived, #1) The Unbound (The Archived, #2)
Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1) Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2) Cress (Lunar Chronicles, #3)

And even though it's a standalone, we like how the style of FANGIRL's cover fits in with Rainbow Rowell's other books, all quirky and hand-drawn:

Eleanor & Park Attachments Fangirl

Please note: No girls in pretty dresses! It's not that we're anti-girls in pretty dresses. It's just that they so rarely have anything to do with the story contained within.

What about you guys? Do you like the typographic trend? Do you miss the girls in dresses? What other covers have caught your eye lately?

Though pretty dress covers tend to be my favorite (I know they'r enot going away-check out Marie Rutkowski's new release), I can still appreciate the beautiful covers collected here-love them all!

Rainbow Rowell's covers are the best! Also love House of Ivy, Chaos of the Stars, The Raven Boys, and the Cinder books!

I love the typography book series. I'm a sucker for good graphic design. Rainbow Rowell's covers are really gorgeous. I may need to buy all these books just to stare at their covers!
