Favorite Book Covers From Our Reads This Year #AMonthofFaves

Here are the book covers we loved the most from our reads this year – and more importantly we’re sharing if the book as good as the cover suggests.

KIM

Crooked Kingdom, Leigh Bardugo

I loved this book so much and the cover was the icing on the cake.

I adore how the cover designer injected some color into Sierra’s hair as a nod to the mural painting she does in the book.


TANYA

Children of Blood and Bone, Tomi Adeyemi

Children and Blood and Bone

In an interview with Teen Vogue, the author mentioned that the cover is by children’s book illustrator and designer, Rich Deas, which she wanted to convey the “power, beauty and blackness” of her teenage protagonist. The book was just as good as the cover.

Binti and Binti Home, Nnedi Okorafor

Binit Book Cover

Cover design and art direction by Christine Foltzer
Cover art by Dave Palumbo

Binti (Home) Book Cover

Both books were just as good as the cover.

Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows, Balli Kaur Jaswal

Erotic Stories for Punjabi Women

Book cover design by Holly MacDonald.

The book was good but a little cheesy at times .. still, I think the book as good as the cover.
