Cover Wars: 2013 Roundup

Cover Wars is a TSC feature all about showcasing beautiful covers. It started on my old blog, Tantalizing Illusions, and followed its way to The Sirenic Codex. Mari has been mostly running it this year, although we've been suggesting covers together.

One of the most fun parts about Cover Wars is the yearly roundup. This is where we get to see the truly fabulous covers; the ones that won the most battles. And, here we crown the Cover of the Year, the cover that won the most for the longest.

Here's a visual representation of your runner ups! Each of these covers won at least once. Undertow and Cruel Beauty won 3 times and are in a tie for second place. 


First place though, for the cover that just keeps on winning, is...


Here's the official tally if you're curious. Please ignore the wins for Love Letters to the Dead, I think it has seven by now.


It was a great year for Cover Wars with many beautiful covers. 2014 will be even better! We started our blog in June so next year's roundup should be much longer. Which were some of your favourite covers?

  2. I love this feature so much-a must-read for me every Tuesday! I look forward to seeing what unseats Love Letters...as my personal favorite from these selections is Cruel Beauty.

    1. Ha I remember your love of Cruel Beauty! Actually, Love Letters will end up being undefeated. Next Tuesday, we're starting Cover Wars completely fresh with two brand new covers. Still, Love Letters had an incredibly impressive run.

  4. Oh my God! I've been without internet these days, so I miss this and couldn't vote!
    I go for Dreams of Gods and Monsters and Undertow. They're breathtakingly beautiful!
    You somehow always find the best covers ever! :)

    1. No internet sucks! Glad you got it again! We browse a LOT of Goodreads lists to find covers. Also, lots of googling "Gorgeous new ya covers" ;p. Glad you like them!
