Happy New everyone! The new year 2011 just started so we thought it would be great to look back at 2010 and the covers it gave us. Being the shallow cover whores we are we had a huge stack to chose from and it was not easy. As always there are the Good and the Bad but this time we tried to keep our explanations short because most of those covers already made it in our posts over the year. Let us know which are your tops ad flops.
Caroline’s Top 5
by Phillipa Ballentine
Caroline: I love the huge lion, I love the power radiating from her. I love how kick ass she looks. To be honest it’s what drove me to reading the book.
Susi: The cover looks like kick-ass fantasy- I love it.
Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs
Susi: Mr Santos rocks big time and I think his Mercy covers are some of the rare ones where I actually like the tattoos.
Caroline: I agree, I’m always excited to see what tattoos Mercy will have on every new cover. Fantastic cover as always in the series.
Sinful by Charlotte Featherstone
Caroline: I love his back, he looks powerful. I love how his hands are fisted. And the pants do remind us it’s a Historical. I also like the swirly thingies.
Susi: Still don’t like his back and his pants are weird. LOL
His at Night by Sherry Thomas
Susi: I adore the yellow so much and the background is enthralling- a cover I like to look at.
Caroline: I love how the dress is melting with the background. There position is very sensual.

Caroline: I think you said it all. I love the colors and the church in the background
Naked by Megan Hart
Susi: I love the arrangment and how the contrast plays a big role.
Caroline: I like the play of colors between her skin and the sheets.
Archangel’s Kiss by Nalini Singh
Susi: The way she is placed in front of everything and her pose are just awesome- great art this one.

Top 3 Worst covers:
Eternal Kiss of Darkness
by Jeaniene Frost
Susi: All I say is: this blood was added with MS Paint for sure- and he looks scary. *shudders*
Caroline: I don’t like the blue tints, and his face is weird. I’m not a fan of the pink font either.
Bonds of Justice by Nalini Singh
Susi: Looks like it was stolen from the 80s- the tattoo sucks so much.
Caroline: The tattoo is not pretty but what i really don’t like is the title font and the weird kitsch background. It’s a Meh cover.
Lover Mine (UK) by J. R. Ward
Susi: Poor John Matthew looks so sick- like he has to puke any moment. Poor sap!
Caroline: Exactly, looks like he has sweat on his face and the color makes me think he’s sick. The title font and swirlies are weird too. *gag*
