I like:

It's pretty and also symbolic, which I like :D I also like that you see a little more in it after you read the book.

The leviathan series has one of the bests book covers IMO, I just love the steampunkyness...

Also, Last Stand of The Wreckers. More of a graphic novel, but I love the cover just because it's made up of only blue, black and yellow, and yet looks really good.

I absolutely love that cover, but same for me. I didn't care much for the book.

Not enough character development, and the lack of symbolism in the dystopia itself kind of ruined it for me.
