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.
In light of recent events both in the world as well as in the online YA community, I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve been feeling a little melancholy and uninspired lately. As a result, I spent much of the past weekend with my family and very little time working on Pop! Goes The Reader. That said, I’ve been told that people look forward to and enjoy this feature each Monday and I had a great deal of fun collecting these beautiful fantasy-themed covers, so I’ll simply keep things short and sweet this week. Some of my favourite covers this week include A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston, The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury, City Of Thieves by Ellen Renner, A Whole New World by Liz Braswell, Rebel Of The Sands by Alwyn Hamilton, Ivory And Bone by Julie Eshbaugh, Passenger by Alexandra Bracken and The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi.
Now it’s your turn! What are some of your favourite fantasy 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!
