2016 Books: The Pretty

Okay, so these book covers aren’t necessarily pretty but they are ones that drew me in. I put a * next to the ones that are also on my 2016 Books: The Good list. Winning all the awards!

prettyhername
Her Name in the Sky by Kelly Quindlen
I looked at this one for a long time. It works well with the wistfulness of the story.

wheredyougo
*Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
This kind of pop art really sells the whimsical nature of the story.

prettywomen
The Women in the Walls by Amy Lukavics
This book didn’t live up to the creepiness of the cover.

Habibi by Craig Thompson
Beautiful art style, suspect story
