You know what’s even better than a book with a good story? When that book has an awesome cover!
Welcome to this color-coordinated YA book covers! Full of books that came out in 2019 with gorgeous covers! These are the covers that made me stop in my tracks and go “huh, let me stare at this gorgeous piece of work for a while.” These absolutely mesmerized me, and I wonder if they do to you too.

You ever want to know what people are buying in bookstores? Well, it so happens that I work at one!
During the last week of February 2018, I pondered about what type of post to make for “Books in Hand.” At first, I planned to discuss all the books customers came in asking for or buying, but that’s a bit too much because everybody came in asking for different books, and I didn’t remember all of them.

And that’s what this post is—seeing the top ten selling books of December 2019 (aka the books that people were also getting as gifts).
