  1. We have some likes and dislikes in common. 🙂 I listed where you only see the bottom half of their face, or the head is completely off the cover, which is just a different half-face cover.

  2. I love all of your listies!! It’s like you took these straight from my brain. I had big dresses and kissing as two of my dislikes as well 😀

  3. Typography is one of the main things I look for in a cover, which is why I loove how Love Letters to the Dead looks. I’m not a fan of the girls in dresses trend either, unless it’s in the background and not the main focus.

  4. I love the huge words on cover trend, too. It just makes the whole cover look so elegant! However, I actually like girls-in-dresses, if it’s done right, also if the girls in the book actually wear dresses at some occasion.
