Today’s best covers post is basically just books with pink on them. I’m very drawn to pink colour palettes, especially as I read a lot of romcoms these days and it’s really starting to show.
I did want to start a series about the best covers but grouped in colours i.e. best pink covers, but then I thought it would get a bit repetitive, so I’ve decided against it. Anyway, here are three more of my favourite book covers.
Some Girls Do by Jennifer Dugan
I’m not ashamed to say that the main reason why I brought this book was because of its cover. I’m such a sucker for this style of cover. I love everything about it; the colour palette, the character design, the overall softness of it. Does that last one make sense? Probably not but it does to me.
Synopsis: Morgan, an elite track athlete, is forced to transfer high schools late in her senior year after it turns out being queer is against her private Catholic school’s code of conduct. There, she meets Ruby, who has two hobbies: tinkering with her baby blue 1970 Ford Torino and competing in local beauty pageants, the latter to live out the dreams of her overbearing mother. The two are drawn to each other and can’t deny their growing feelings. But while Morgan—out and proud, and determined to have a fresh start—doesn’t want to have to keep their budding relationship a secret, Ruby isn’t ready to come out yet. With each girl on a different path toward living her truth, can they go the distance together?
The Drowned Woods by Emily Lloyd Jones
Now, I wasn’t blown away by this book, but it does have a really nice cover. I’m also a sucker for a pink and purple cover, which is probably obvious by now. I especially love a good gradient.
Synopsis: Once upon a time, the kingdoms of Wales were rife with magic and conflict, and eighteen-year-old Mererid “Mer” is well-acquainted with both. She is the last living water diviner and has spent years running from the prince who bound her into his service. Under the prince’s orders, she located the wells of his enemies, and he poisoned them without her knowledge, causing hundreds of deaths. After discovering what he had done, Mer went to great lengths to disappear from his reach. Then Mer’s old handler returns with a proposition: use her powers to bring down the very prince that abused them both.
The best way to do that is to destroy the magical well that keeps the prince’s lands safe. With a motley crew of allies, including a fae-cursed young man, the lady of thieves, and a corgi that may or may not be a spy, Mer may finally be able to steal precious freedom and peace for herself. After all, a person with a knife is one thing…but a person with a cause can topple kingdoms.
Lark & Kasim Start a Revoltuion by Kacen Callender
Again, I wasn’t blown away by this book, but I love its cover. It’s probably one of the main reasons why I wanted to read it.
The character designs are so good and they have so much personality for static images. The colours really make the cover and it’s so fun and interesting.
Synopsis: Lark Winters wants to be a writer, and for now that means posting on their social media accounts––anything to build their platform. When former best friend Kasim accidentally posts a thread on Lark’s Twitter declaring his love for a secret, unrequited crush, Lark’s tweets are suddenly the talk of the school—and beyond. To protect Kasim, Lark decides to take the fall, pretending they accidentally posted the thread in reference to another classmate. It seems like a great idea: Lark gets closer to their crush, Kasim keeps his privacy, and Lark’s social media stats explode. But living a lie takes a toll—as does the judgment of thousands of Internet strangers. Lark tries their best to be perfect at all costs, but nothing seems good enough for the anonymous hordes––or for Kasim, who is growing closer to Lark, just like it used to be between them . . .
In the end, Lark must embrace their right to their messy emotions and learn how to be in love.
