T.G.I.F. (16)

Thank Great Illustrators Fridays is a book meme created and hosted by Owl Read It.

They say don't judge a book by it's cover, but a lot of the time the cover is what draws you to the book in the first place. This meme is to show appreciation to the artists who put their time and effort into creating the great book covers of our beloved series.

To Participate:
  • Pick a book cover you love (any book will do - released or not)
  • Post the picture of the book along with the author & publisher 
  • Post a brief summary of why you like the cover. 
  • Take the pic above and link back to us :)
This week's TGIF cover:

The Elite

Author: Kiera Cass

Projected Publication Date: April 23, 2013

Publisher: HarperTeen

Genre: Dystopia



Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.
America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.
Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.


This book cover was just released recently and it is just as pretty as the first one.  I cannot wait to read this book and the last one left me with such a cliffhanger!  The colour has shifted from blue to red (America's dresses too.  Anyone else foreseeing blue, red and white like the American flag - and wedding bells?).  That was just something that would be pretty neat, maybe lol.

What are your favourite book covers?  Leave us a link to your own T.G.I.F. :)


  1. I don't know who makes the covers for those series but he/she is really good! From photographer, the fashion helper or whatever to the final person who makes the cover. Simply wow!

    Great choice!

  2. OMG The cover is gorgeous!! Whoever designed the covers of both The Selection and The Elite should be applauded :)
    I loved The Selection! It was simply amazing! I wonder how Kiera will continue the story! :) I can't wait until next years release!! :D
    Great choice and thanks for sharing! :)

    1. I can't wait either, I am so excited I could burst~!!! :D

  3. This is a gorgeous cover! I don't think it's quite as lovely as the first cover in the series, but it's still awesome!

    1. I agree that I LOVE the blue cover dress, especially since it made America stand out! Thanks~
