Cover to Cover- The Fairy Edition

This is somewhat late.....the new blogger thinks it's so smart, or I'm so stupid, that it needs to repair my already perfect HTML. Which totally messes it up. Took me ages to get it to work. And then it didn't save....what happened to the autosave? Another twenty minutes re-writing it. Almost wanted to give up.

 But Cover to Cover is back. And like last time, it's books from a specific genre and compared. And it's fairies, a semi--common feature in YA. And because I've read absolutely none of these books, I can simply give my opinions on the covers and not be influenced by the book. And so, on to the feature...
((Picture heavy))

Iron King by Julia Knight
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
Tithe by Holly Black
  Lament by Maggie Stiefvater
  Wings by Aprilynne Pike
  Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev Glimmer Glass by Jenna Black
  Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
  Knife by R.J.Anderson

 So, onto my comments and opinions. Blue seems to be the colour for the fae, the predominant colour in all of these. With exceptions. Iron King is more green, but in the series the colours rotate around to blue. Lament seems to follow Stiefvater's design scheme, which is nice. The Artemis Fowl seems to be breaking the mould with not having any wings or pretty girls on the front, which isn't that suprising considering how the fairies are used in this book.

What do you guys think?
