Top Ten of 2021: My Favorite Book Covers


Top 10 of 2021 is hosted by Books of My Heart.


It is hard to resist an attractive book cover, isn't it? It may not be the reason I decide to read a book in the end, but it certainly may be the reason I pick it up to take a closer look in the first place. Here are my top ten book covers of books I read in 2021 (in no particular order):  


The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo


The Russian Cage (Gunnie Rose #3) by Charlaine Harris


Swimming Back to Trout River by Linda Rui Feng


The Memory Collectors by Kim Neville


Cackle by Rachel Harrison


Witch Hat Atelier, Volume 3 by Kamome Shrahama & Stephen Kohler, translator


One by One by Ruth Ware


The Gilded Ones (Deathless #1) by Namina Forna


The Christmas Dress by Courtney Cole


Down a Dark River (Inspector Corravan #1) by Karen Odden

  1. Gilded Ones is magnificent, and Cackle is clever.

  2. My favorite on your list is definitely Gilded Ones followed by Poet X. I know we're not supposed to judge books by their cover, but a good cover is so wonderful and a bad cover can just wreck a book's chances.

    1. Helen - A good cover can make a difference in whether we pick up a good to take a closer look or pass it by, can't it? Sometimes at least. :-)

  11. Ooh, what a great post. The Gilded Ones' cover is truly beautiful -- I don't usually read fantasy, but that cover actually made me read this one, and I ended up really liking it.

    And shoot, The Christmas Dress looks like exactly the kind of book I was looking for a couple weeks back when I wanted a holiday read that wasn't explicitly romance. Maybe if I get to it quick I'll still appreciate the seasonal magic without having to wait a year...
