This is my weekly post where I highlight and appreciate cover designs and the general physical appearance of books. We all judge book covers to some extent. I can’t say that I’ve ever decided against a book with terrible cover art if I liked the sound of the plot, but I have purchased special editions of books or multiple editions of books based on their cover art. If book covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t put out so many beautiful editions!
This week I’m featuring several middle-grade titles because they all have gorgeous covers (and similar colors schemes) and I hope also to motivate myself to read them…because I’m horrible at that part. Pretty sure I picked up almost all of these at the last Scholastic book fair I went to…which was earlier this year. Anyway!
