2014: The Pretty

Every year I bring you The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the books I’ve read, and then I feel guilty that I’m leaving out The Pretty. So I give you a bonus post for those cover designers who actually tried. This year, they are:

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

I really love the art style on this, that almost looks like paper cutouts. I also think it fits the kind of surreal nature of this book.

Geeks, Girls, and Secret Identities by Mike Jung

This book was kind of whatever, but the cover looks mad exciting!

To Be Or Not To Be by Ryan North

This book just won all of my awards this year. And how can it not? It’s a kickass choose-your-own-path book with badass illustrations.

SPEAKING OF BADASS, GET IT, ISMAE! I loved everything this book chose to be. Assassins? Check. Death as a character? Check. Interesting historical setting? You bet. LADY POWER TO THE MAX? You know it! And the cover portrays all these badass things too.
