People always say: “You should never judge a book by it’s cover.” But here on Cover Stories, that is exactly what I do.
There are so many great books that are being published this year, but for me it’s not just the stories that I am looking forward to, it is the covers too. I love filling my bookshelves with pretty books and these are some of the best…
Black and white with a dash of colour, you can’t get much simpler then that. It’s bold and it’s powerful, just like the stories hidden beneath them.
(Check out my review of My Heart and Other Black Holes)
Firstly I LOVE the colour scheme for the Confess cover. Such pretty colours! The girl peeking through the title is really cool, and I like the addition of the paint splatters, totally in keeping with the story within. I really like covers that focus on the title, and Everything, Everything really does this too, I really like the addition of the doodles which, if anything make the title pop even more and also totally fit in with the whole theme of the book.
I am a MASSIVE fan of doodles and cute little images on covers and so I really do love these two. The colours and the whole layout of both are perfectly done, and done so cleverly that although there is a lot going on you are not distracted from the main title.
What do you think of these covers? Are you excited for the books to be released?
Which books and their covers are you most looking forward to this year?
