I don’t know if it’s just me, but the covers for YA (contemporary) novels have gotten more and more stunning over the past two or three years.
I remember when every cover had a random girl and / or boy on the front (who looked nothing like the MC by the way), and while those covers still exist, I’m glad we’re seeing other covers too. And THEY. ARE. STUNNING!
It’s gotten to the point where I’m buying books I’m not 100% convinced I’ll love them or books I’ve already read** but I buy them anyway because I NEED that book on my shelf. Please tell me I’m not the only one who does that.
(**Harry Potter special 20th anniversary edition, anyone?)
Here are 10 of my favourite covers for 2017 releases
Do you ever buy books because of the cover? Do you agree with my choices? Which covers do you love? Let me know in the comments!
