Super Six Sunday: My favorite summery book covers!

Super Six Sunday is a new meme hosted by Bewitched Bookworms! This is my first time joining in with this fun new meme. Maybe I'll make it a habit. :)

This week's theme is all about summery book covers, and boy do I have a lot to say about this because I am a huge book cover fanatic.

This book is pretty much the epitome of the perfect summer beach read, so of course it's cover had to be on my list. It's simple, yet still manages to give off that beachy summer vibe. Plus, I've always been in love with the stylized title font. 

Yes, I do realize that I'm sort of cheating by putting all three of these books in the same category, but they're all Sarah Dessen so I figure it's okay right? Out of all of the covers for Sarah Dessen's books these four seem the most summery to me. I particularly love The Moon and More cover (can you say, summer beach house vacation?) and the original Along for the Ride cover. My reasons for liking the original Along for the Ride cover may or may not have to do with biceps.... :P

This cover totally reminds me of those late summer nights gallivanting about town with friends. Not that I've ever actually done that (I'm such a home body) but it makes me want to do that. Other cover designers should be taking notes because I absolutely adore the way the font is overlaying an image. More covers should look like this!

I just love this book and it's cover. First of all, the color scheme is gorgeous. Orange is my favorite color so I'm a big fan of sunsets on book covers. Secondly this cover totally has that easy breezy summer feel to it. It also feels strangely nostalgic, which makes sense considering what the book is about. Overall I just really love this cover and it totally makes me want to head off to a vacation house on a lake. 

I absolutely adore this cover! I do realize it's practically the same design as the Second Chance Summer cover, but I prefer this one for some reason. I don't know about you guys, but seeing this cover makes me really want to head to the beach with my besties. I really need a good beach day! 

This is hands down my favorite summery book cover. I am such a sucker for this book (if you like summer camp books read it) and I think the cover is just awesome. It encapsulates the summer camp vibe perfectly and just looking at it makes me want to immediately pack my bags and head down to camp, even though I'm too old to go to camp anymore. Why is there no such thing as college student summer camp? Oh right, that's called being a camp counselor. Why am I not a camp counselor?

So those are my six favorite summery book covers! Well, technically eight if you count the extra Sarah Dessen one's, but who cares, that's a technicality.

What are some of your favorite summer book covers? Leave them in the comments below and be sure to link me to your Super Six Sunday post so I can check it out!

  1. You picked some fantastic covers!!!! Love Second Chance Summer and The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life, but I think my absolute favorite is Sleepaway Girls. I just adore that open suitcase, it makes me want to pack for vacation!

  2. Great choices! I love Sarah Dessen's new cover designs - she's one of my favourite authors. The Summer I Turned Pretty covers have always been a favourite of mine too ^_^

  3. Love the ones you picked!! !The Best Night of your Life is a perfect book for sommer and it#s actually super fun :)) I have never heard about Sleepaway Girls - but it does sound fantastic and I'll totally adding it to my list! Thank you so much for joining :)

  4. OMG I love the cover to Sleepaway Girls :D I also included Sarah Dessen books, check out my other "summery book covers" here

  5. I have not read a Sarah Dessen book yet but I keep hearing how great they are. All of the covers are so sunny and make me want to go on holiday! Lol, the guy has verrry nice biceps ;)
    I have to agree with you on the 2nd one, it makes me want to go out with my friends on a cool summers evening. Cool post, it's finally getting sunny in the UK, so they're all making me feel so summery!

  6. What a cool meme! I'm going to have to start participating in this. Wish I had known about it beforehand because I'm a huge cover person too! And quite frankly, summer covers are the BEST! I love how you included those Sarah Dessen ones as one number :) I LOVE The Moon and More's cover. It's probably my favorite of all of them. It's so vibrant in person and is the epitome of summer. I completely agree with you girl. The original cover for ALONG FOR THE RIDE is way better than the new one. Really, aside from TM&M, I don't like any of the new covers. But I'm kind of stubborn when it comes to change.

    I've never heard of or seen the cover of SLEEPAWAY GIRLS but it's fantastic! I definitely see why you chose it as #1! I love summer camp books so will definitely be adding this to my TBR list. Did you review it on here? I need to hunt that down and see what you thought :)

    1. I am not a big fan of cover changes either. I'm definitely fond of all the old Sarah Dessen covers. There are a few of the new covers that I prefer (Keeping the Moon and Lock and Key) but I think most of them are inferior to the old ones. I feel like most of the new ones just look so super photoshopped and what not. They don't feel real you know?

      Unfortunately I did not review Sleepaway Girls. I read it before I started blogging. Maybe I should read it again and review it as a sort of summer throwback! :D
