Judging A Book

Judging A Book By Its Cover: Still More Middle Grade

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!

I have so many middle-grade books in my collection that I could probably dedicate this blog to them for a year. I’m back today with three more books that I still haven’t read, but I’m really excited to (right guys? RiGHT?) I bought Cactus because, how could I not? The Scandalous Sisterhood was something I saw recommended on someone’s Youtube channel who enjoys MG. And Nevermoor is a book that seemingly everyone is praising!

Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus by Dusti Bowling was designed by Ryan Thomann and published in 2017 by Sterling Children’s, ISBN: 9781454923459.

Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend has cover art by Jim Madsen and cover design by Sasha Illingworth. Published in 2017 by Little, Brown ISBN: 9780316508896.

The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place by Julie Berry features a cover illustration by Iacopo Bruno and book design by Elizabeth Clark. Published in 2014 by Squarefish, ISBN: 9781250073396.

There’s an illustration of a tarantula at the end of the book, but I wasn’t about to photograph that >:[
