Judging A Book

Judging A Book By Its Cover: Middle-grade & YA Books

This is my weekly post where I highlight beautiful books from my collection. We all judge book covers to some extent (don’t lie, you totally do!) I created this feature to showcase and admire the art and design elements of some of the books I own. If covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t make so many wonderful editions!

Today I bring you a group of middle-grade and YA fiction that I bought at the last Scholastic warehouse sale I attended. Unsurprisingly, I haven’t read any of these yet! But they all look good.

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson has jacket art by Charlie Bowater (whose work is amazing!) and jacket design by Regina Flath, published in 2018 by Delacorte Press, ISBN: 9780399555770.

Dry by Neal and Jarrod Shusterman has jacket illustration by Jay Shaw and jacket design by Chloe Foglia, published in 2018 by Simon & Schuster, ISBN: 9781481481960.

Front Desk by Kelly Yang has jacket art by Maike Plenzke and jacket design by Maeve Norton, published in 2018 by Arthur A. Levine Books, ISBN: 9781338157796.

Orphan Island by Laurel Snyder has jacket art by David Litchfield and jacket design by Amy Ryan, published in 2017 by Walden Pond Press, ISBN: 9780062443410.
