Cover Love: Favorite Fairy Tale Cover


February 14, 2013 by Alice in Readerland

Cover Love is hosted by Bookshelver’s Anonymous

Since it’s Fairy Tale February this month here in Readerland, I decided to have this Cover Love post feature one of my favorite fairy tale covers, Hero by Alethea Kontis:


I love how the girl on the cover gets to have both a sword and a pretty dress; after all, there should be no reason why a girl can’t have both! She’s obviously not the sit-and-wait-to-be-rescued type of girl, and that’s a fantastic message. I love book covers that feature girls taking action, but I’m also a sucker for colorful ballgowns on covers, so this cover combines the best of both worlds for me!

 Which book cover do you love?

Come back soon to Readerland to see Fairy Tale February posts!

    That cover is so pretty! I love when the colour green is used well.
    Just put the book onto my ‘to-read’ list on goodreads, who says we don’t judge a book by its cover.

    The sword is a very nice touch and since the color teal keeps grabbing my eye, I like her dress too. It just makes it even better that she has both :) Great pick!

    Okay I LOOOOOVVVVEEE this cover. I want to read it too, despite not knowing what it’s about! :)

  4. Yes, I like this one! It’s just as pretty as the first cover. I don’t know why, but I tend to love every cover from fairytale books. There is just something magical about them, with so many details :) And the dresses are always SO pretty, like Entwined <3
