Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover – Issue Fifteen: Christmas & Seasonal

“Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover!” is a semi-regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader inspired by Katie’s feature Cover Love on her blog One Page At A Time. The idea is being used with her gracious permission.

I think we’re all familiar with the age-old adage “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. And you know what I have to say about that? Rubbish! Covers are an invaluable part of a book’s package. A truly great cover can tell you a lot about the novel contained within its pages. They can also catch your attention and attract you to a novel you might otherwise ignore. So go ahead, judge a book by its cover – We all do it!

For the fifteenth instalment of Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover, I’ve decided to use the upcoming holiday as my inspiration for today’s very special edition. It’s no secret that I absolutely adore Christmas, and there are few things I love to do more as the holiday approaches than settle in with a series of Christmas-themed novels in order to better get into the spirit of the season. As I began searching for the books I wanted to read this year, I was struck by how many beautiful seasonal and holiday-themed book covers there were on the market. Whether they were traditional like Diana Palmer’s White Christmas or Sabrina Jeffries’ ‘Twas The Night After Christmas or a little more modern, colourful and contemporary like Lisa Kleypas’ Christmas Eve At Friday Harbour or Jenny Hale’s Coming Home For Christmas, I loved the variety of interpretations I was able to find. Below, please find just a few of my personal favourites!

Now it’s your turn! What are some of your favourite Christmas and/or seasonal and holiday covers? Did I list one of your favourites here or is there one I forgot that just has to be included? Let me know in the comments!

    Beautiful picks as usual, Jen! I’ve never seen any of these books before (my ignorance in the adult genre is showing!) but their covers are so Christmasy and perfect for the seasonal theme! I love the cover of Winter Wonderlad and Christmas at Claridges the most!

    PS: So glad to see that you’re back! 🙂

    These covers are so purrrty! I want! 😀 I love how Christmas-themed books have all these curly fonts and intricate details of snowflakes and birds and whatnot. Great list!

    I really like the cover for A Fatal Winter – I’ll have to look it up. I also need to read a Jenny Colgan book. All of the covers are so adorable.
