Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover – Issue Seven: Middle Grade (Part 2)

“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. Book covers 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 seventh instalment of Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover, I’ve decided re-visit the Middle Grade genre. While I was very happy with my selection a few weeks ago, many people were quick to point out some of the other positively delightful covers I forgot to include. Because Middle Grade covers are predominantly illustrated and extremely colourful, this is one of my favourite genres to highlight and I had an absolute blast finding even more to highlight in this week’s edition. I hope you’re able to enjoy it, too!

Now it’s your turn! What are some of your favourite middle grade 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!

  1. So much gorgeousness!!!! I don’t read middle grade books so much anymore but those covers are too pretty I WANT THEM ON MY SHELF. I particularly love the covers of Alaska, Wildwood and Kat. <3

  4. Middle-grade books get THE BEST covers ever. So much more creativity and love go into their design – almost 100% of MG covers are illustrated. No goofy stock images, no poofy, unnecessary dresses. Every time I’m in a book store I just want to take home one of everything from the young readers’ section. They’re all adorable and gorgeous.
