In society, we have been always taught to not judge a book by its cover. But today I am going to revolt for the greater good and judge the mess out of these book cover designs! Out of a great selection of books I found these 8 insanely great book covers that I will later read.

Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin

This book cover first caught my attention months ago when browsing the “New Fiction” section in Barnes in Noble. This cover has such a bold and retro font, that it immediately pulled me in. Additionally, in the background of the font I appreciate the sentiment of the “Great Wave of Kanagawa” print art by Hokusai a Japanese artist. I have somewhat of a connection with this art piece because, in my art history class in college I saw this print and it captivated me with intense emotion and a feeling of empowerment. So, with that all in mind I decided to take this book home with me!

My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh

My Year of Rest and Relaxation: A Novel

The first time looking at this book I was like, it’s giving “me” every time I wake up at 5 am for work! The woman on this page is a work of art, she is completely in her element. She looks somewhat bothered but also absolutely over the bullshit. Ladies and gentlemen this is why this book is why it is in my shopping cart.

The Courage to be Disliked By Ichiro Kishimi

The Courage to Be Disliked: The Japanese Phenomenon That Shows You How to Change Your Life and Achieve Real Happiness


So I know the whole point of this blog post is to talk about the book cover and to judge a book by it by its book cover. However the painting of this book does not phase me whatsoever, I am completely captivated by the title! “The Courage to Be Disliked” Yes! Yes! Yes! This is what our world needs this is what I need the courage to be disliked. The courage to not care about what people may think of you. The courage to not care about having so many followers and likes on social media. The courage to just be you and that’s it!

One Dark Window By Rachel Gillig

One Dark Window (The Shepherd King Book 1)

There is something eerie and mysterious about this book that draws me in. I have seen this book cover on multiple platforms and it just truly catches my eye. The mist that is in between the letters, and the character that is sitting below the title signifies to me that she is a woman who has fire. Someone powerful but yet alone. I think that can connect with a lot of women in this era of time and even in this world or era that this story takes place in. As women, we may have all this drive, passion, and courage living inside of us but it can be a lonely lost road to put ourselves out there.

Pineapple Street By Jenny Jackson


I think this book is eye-catching! The cover has a brightly colored room that looks very chic, with lots of personality and fun. You could easily spot it in a library, Target, Barnes, or wherever you shop. Judging by the cover, I feel like the book might be about an eccentric group of people, such as a family, a found family, or even a group of friends who have a lot of money. This is because of the personality that is reflected in the room and the display of expensive-looking statues and diamonds on the table. Overall, I think this book would be a fun and lavish journey that I would love to be a part of.


Jade City By Fonda Lee

I know this book has been out for a while but it’s been one that keeps coming back to me. For one, if I have a child I would want to name her Jade lol, and for two the bright bold green magic that this book exudes. It makes me want to cast a spell or go visit the emerald city of “The Wizard of Oz!” Also to mention on the cover says, that “family is duty, magic is power, and honor is everything” I come from a pretty big family and we spend so much time together I feel like I play a big role in my family and that in some ways it can be a duty. Something in me feels a connection with this book cover and I would like to read it and reveal its secrets!

The Unmaking of June Farrow By Adrienne Young

The cover of this book has a whimsical and beautiful allure. Its depiction of art, bathed in soft light and viewed from a skyward perspective, evokes notions of time travel and the splendor of space and galaxies. This book seems to encapsulate a world of wonder.

The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin

On this book cover the illustration depicts the city’s skyscrapers and buildings as if they are alive and breathing, with tendrils of energy emanating from them. The colors used in the illustration are bright and bold, with a mix of blues, purples, oranges, and yellows. With this representation, I believe this book holds themes of magic, and identity, and is embedded with creativity. I cannot wait to dive into this beautiful book!
