The Best Of: Beautiful Book Covers #6

When wondering what to post today I was thinking about all of the books I have read recently that have pretty covers. I think we all know by now that I am very shallow when it comes to books (six posts of this type definitely proves that) and I will always be a sucker for a good looking cover. 

Today I have talked about three more of the best YA covers I have come across in the last few months. I have obviously seen more however I like to mostly include books I’ve actually read. Anyway onwards to the post.  

A Dance with the Fae Prince (Married To Magic #2) by Elise Kova 

Elise Kova’s covers never disappoint. Every single one of her books has a completely stunning cover. So stunning that I wish I owned physical copies so I could sit staring at them all day. 

The colours are so eyecatching and the artwork is so beautiful. I look forward more and more for every cover reveal that Elise does. Purely because I know each will be as stunning as the last. 

Goodreads synopsis: Katria swore she’d never fall in love. She’s seen what “love” means through the cruelty of her family. So when she’s married off to the mysterious Lord Fenwood for a handsome price, all Katria wants is a better life than the one she’s leaving. Feelings are off the table.

But her new husband makes not falling in love difficult.

As their attraction begins to grow, so too do the oddities within her new life: strange rules, screams in the night, and attacks by fae that Katria never thought were real. When she witnesses a ritual not meant for human eyes, Katria finds herself spirited away to the land of Midscape.

Surviving the fae wilds as a human is hard enough. Katria must survive as a human who accidentally pilfered the magic of ancient kings – magic a bloodthirsty king is ready to kill her for in order to keep his stolen throne – and her new husband is the rightful heir in hiding.

The power to save the fae is in her hands. But who will save her from a love she vowed never to feel?

This Poison Heart by Kalynn Bayron 

Kalynn Bayron is another author whose covers do not disappoint. I’ve now mentioned her books in two of these posts back-to-back so that says a lot. 

Her covers are the exact art style that I just adore and once again I am sad that I do not own a physical copy of this book. The reds and greens look so nice together and paired with the gold font you’ve got yourself a cover that is beautiful. 

I cannot wait to see what the next book in this series will look like and you can probably guarantee that it will end up on one of these posts. 

Goodreads synopsis: Briseis has a gift: she can grow plants from tiny seeds to rich blooms with a single touch.

When Briseis’s aunt dies and wills her a dilapidated estate in rural New York, Bri and her parents decide to leave Brooklyn behind for the summer. Hopefully there, surrounded by plants and flowers, Bri will finally learn to control her gift. But their new home is sinister in ways they could never have imagined–it comes with a specific set of instructions, an old-school apothecary, and a walled garden filled with the deadliest botanicals in the world that can only be entered by those who share Bri’s unique family lineage.

When strangers begin to arrive on their doorstep, asking for tinctures and elixirs, Bri learns she has a surprising talent for creating them. One of the visitors is Marie, a mysterious young woman who Bri befriends, only to find that Marie is keeping dark secrets about the history of the estate and its surrounding community. There is more to Bri’s sudden inheritance than she could have imagined, and she is determined to uncover it . . . until a nefarious group comes after her in search of a rare and dangerous immortality elixir. Up against a centuries-old curse and the deadliest plant on earth, Bri must harness her gift to protect herself and her family.

Pastel Pink (Zadok #1) by Nikki Minty 

The cover of this book is absolutely gorgeous, it was just a shame that the story wasn’t as brilliant. When scrolling through Netgalley this book instantly caught my eye. It is stunning. 

Pink is one of my favourite colours so imagine my joy when I saw a cover that was exclusively pink and has my favourite art style. Painted/covers are my absolute favourite and I am definitely more likely to read a book if it has a cover like this. I’m such a sucker for them and it does backfire sometimes.

Goodreads synopsis: From one ending comes a new beginning…

Ruby was murdered on Earth eighteen years ago and reincarnated on Zadok as a Pastel Zeek named Harlow. To be born at the bottom of her race’s caste colour system to a middle-class family of Magentas has made Harlow a source of conflict amongst the ruling Purples, and a source of derision from all three colours.

When Harlow is attacked by a fuegor on Zadok, the effects of its slow reacting venom triggers an unforeseen phenomenon, and due to the strong connection she had with her former twin sister Jade, her human spirit is unexpectedly drawn back to Earth.

Now living a double life, she has plunged into a world of intrigue on both planets.

On earth, she watches on in horror as Jade reconnects with Lucas, the man who murdered her and got away with it. And to complicate things further, she’s being pursued by Alex, the ghost of Lucas’ twin. On Zadok, she becomes embroiled with Jax, the son of the Commanding family. He’s determined to bring about change to the colony’s colour system, but it’ll come at a cost.

As Harlow mixes with the political intrigue of the Zeeks, will she become a victim of those trying to rigidly maintain the status quo or will she usher in a revolution?

And will ghost Ruby resist the temptation of the handsome Alex or pursue an impossible relationship that could have dire consequences on both planets?
