The Harry Potter special edition box set is amaaaazing and takes the cake for the year. I am so glad I picked up this set for #Potterbinge. I really wanted to read paperbacks, and these are wonderfully illustrated and very good quality. They can take a beating! Chamber of Secrets down below is my favorite cover of the set so far.
I read a variety of books this year, and their covers were just as diverse in style and tone.
While I didn't necessarily fall in love with the poems of Poisoned Apples by Christine Hepperman, I am a total sucker for the rich, red set against a bleak background.
I'm always a huge Lumberjanes fan (by Noelle Stevenson, et al), and their cover art has been nothing short of stellar this year.
I've seen a few different covers of Sara Taylor's The Shore, but I prefer this one. I can imagine the stories in that house. It sets such a visual tone for stories full of isolation and drenched in place.
While it was technically a listen, I have long been smitten with this Penguin edition of We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson. The black and white, cartoony, gothic style is perfect.
Finally, Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum...another novel that didn't totally wow me...nailed it with the cover in hardcover. Sadly, it was cheapened and totally screwed up in paperback. See below and let's all sigh a sad sigh together.
Ugh. Such a cop out from the publisher. Soooo not reflective of the book. Anyway...
Share! Share! What were your favorite covers from the books you read this year?
