Book Cover Trend

Magic Study by Maria V. Synder

The fact that more and more book covers are focusing on close ups of real people's faces or bust ups just smacked me on the face today. Maybe I just didn't notice it before, but I feel like a ton books that are coming out now feature faces or chest-up, like Soulstice, Candor, Blood Promise, and The Teardrop Collector to name a few.

Either way, new or old, I was wondering:
What do you think of books covers with close ups of faces/chest-up?

I think these type of covers are pretty freaking awesome and dramatic, so I say a definite "yes" to this trend, though I still love minimalistic covers like Shiver. It's all or nothing! :)
