Best Book Covers of 2013

Don't judge a book by its cover, eh? Here are my top ten cover designs of 2013. This list is strictly about design and not content, although it does include some of my overall favs (Anthony Marra and Susan Steinberg - huzzah!) it is not exactly a reading top ten. Surprisingly, a lot of my favorite books this year had really mediocre covers. Looking at you, The Interestings and All That Is. Honestly, I really struggle to pick a top ten of books based on content anyway--the agony of whittling down the list, for one thing, does not appeal to me. So, without further commentary, here is some bookish design candy:
