I admit I’m a book cover snob. Who isn’t though?
Book covers are the first thing that attracts readers to a book. A good cover can draw someone is, just as a bad cover can easily draw someone away. It can essentially make or break a book. Holy, Mother Cover! is where I showcase the book covers that stand out (or make me cringe) and discuss cover changes.
Star light, star bright, you look mighty beautiful in that vast night sky!
I’ve noticed a book cover trend of the big night sky with people or structures below. I’ve picked the ones with stars on it because holy gorgeous stars! I love the way the stars twinkle and the way the covers are framed because you see how big the night sky is when you have the people and buildings at the bottom of the cover. It makes the scene even more epic, and to me, emphasizes how there’s so much out there in the sky, in the world, and in the books! It’s weirdly welcoming to me.
Let’s check out those covers!
TREND: Vast Starlit Night Sky
Best vast starlit night sky cover? They’re all sooo pretty. However, the ones that make me want to lay outside and look at the beautiful starlit sky are Station Eleven and The Language of the Stars. It just seems more realistic and beautiful.
