Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 94: Contemporary (Part 18)

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.

Some of my favourite covers this week include Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson, Sociable by Rebecca Harrington, Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata, Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds, The Summer of Broken Things by Margaret Peterson Haddix, Since We Last Spoke by Brenda Rufener, The Birds, The Bees, and You and Me by Olivia Hinebaugh, A Heart In A Body In The World by Deb Caletti, Fear of Missing Out by Kate McGovern, Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson, Sparrow by Sarah Moon, I Am Still Alive by Kate Alice Marshall and Pride by Ibi Zoboi.

Please Note: I’ve done my best to credit the designers and artists responsible for the beautiful covers below, but was unable to find this information for a number of those listed. If you know of an uncredited designer responsible for any of these book covers, please let me know and I would be happy to include proper attribution in this post. Their work is lovely and deserves to be credited.
