Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 67: Contemporary (Part 14)

Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I pay tribute to some of the best and brightest the publishing world has to offer in the way of book cover design. This feature is inspired by Katie’s feature Cover Love on her blog One Page At A Time. The idea is being used with her gracious permission.

Happy Monday, friends! If you’re anything like me, you’ve likely spent the last two days consuming more hours of Olympic coverage than is healthy (or sane) and doing very little else. Quite honestly, I’m surprised that I was able to get anything done. I’m physically and emotionally exhausted, and I’m not even the one competing! 😉 That said, working on this week’s edition of Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover was such a joy for me, as we’re once again exploring one of my very favourite genres – Contemporary and realistic fiction! Some of my favourite covers this week include History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera, The Upside Of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli, This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills, It Started With Goodbye by Christina June, Break In Case Of Emergency by Jessica Winter, Invincible Summer by Alice Adams, Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley, The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close and The Regulars by Georgia Clark.

  1. I hadn’t seen it before this post but I have just absolutely fallen head over heels in love with the cover for The Hopefuls! I love how minimalist it is but it still packs a punch with the colours in the illustations. Absolutely gorgeous.

    There are some covers here that really catches my eyes! I have an arc for the romantics but I haven’t read it yet. My favorite from all of those cover must be The Art of Holding On and Letting Go 🙂

    I always judge books by their cover. I may not like certain cover designs or specific cover art but I can recognize and acknowledge when something is professionally done and just doesn t appeal to my taste vs. being unprofessional and poorly rendered.
