Judging My Most Anticipated 2017 Reads by Their Covers


Covers are playing a more and more important role in today’s book industry (because who wants an ugly cover staring at them from a bookshelf) so today I’ll be discussing some recently revealed book covers…

*I’ll only be discussing books who’s covers have been released recently.
*This post is 100% non spoilery so don’t fear nerdlings.
*Click the book cover to go to the books goodreads.

THE DARK PROPHECY (The Trials of Apollo #2) by Rick Riordan
Release Date: May 2 2017
Rating: ❤❤


Okay I have no idea what’s going on here. The cover for The Hidden Oracle (Book 1) was really pretty, I don’t know what this mess is. Something about the color and the detailing is a turn off. Do you agree?

Release Date: May 2 2017
Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤


Excuse me a second… *walks off to scream into a pillow*… Guys I’m freaking out! I’m such a huge fan of the A Court of Thorns and Roses series and seeing the new covers always gets me because they’re always epic. Can I just say I totally knew this one would be green! It’s just so powerful, Feyre looks ready to murder with that wicked looking knife in her hand and the armoured dress!

IRON GOLD by Pierce Brown
Release Date: August 22 2017
Rating: ❤❤❤❤


Ok let’s be honest with each other for a sec; I haven’t even finished the Red Rising Trilogy yet 🙈🙈🙊 Hear me out! Red Rising is my favorite book (OF ALL TIME!) so I’m trying to go slow with the series and really enjoy it. Anyway Iron Gold looks epic, white covers always look regal but what’s with the burning feather?

DOWN AMONG THE STICKS AND BONES (Every Heart a Doorway #2) by Seanan McGuire
Release Date: June 13 2017
Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤


If you’ve been following me for any amount of time you know I absolutely, a 1000% loved Every Heart a Doorway and it’s cover so it’s no surprise I love this cover too. Its dark and intriguing – as it should be since we’re going to be exploring Jack and Jill’s sinster world. Mad scientists and vampires… So exciting!

THE WISH GRANTER ( Ravenspire #2) by C. J. Redwine
Release Day: February 14 2017
Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤


Let’s be honest again; I never really liked the first Ravenspire book but I’m willing to give C. J. Redwine another chance because this cover is gorgeous! And the synopsis of the book doesn’t hurt too; a Rumpelstiltskin retelling! Could be really good or really bad…

ROYAL BASTARDS by Andrew Shvarts
Release Day: June 6th 2017
Rating: ❤❤❤


Bastards, thrones and magical kindgdoms. (Sound familiar? 😋) Anyway this is one of my most anticipated reads and the cover is really…. underwhelming. I was just expecting more. Anyway it does sound like an interesting read and from what I could glean its mostly about friendship which is great!

THE BURNING WORLD (Warm Bodies #2) by Isaac Marion
Release Day: February 7 2017
Rating: ❤❤❤


I’m not even sure when this cover came out exactly because I was too busy squealing over the fact that Warm Bodies HAS A SEQUEL! Like what in the world!?? I read Warm Bodies way back in 2016 (totally loved it!) so I’m dying to read this. Anyway the cover: I love the red and black. Kinda sad to see a burning city in the cover because I thought we had a happy ending in the first book… Oh well…

What are some of your favorite covers/ cover reveals? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I cannot wait for The Burning World! I agree that we had some kind of a happy ending in Warm Bodies, but there was still more to it. It marked the beginning of a evolution, which I guess we’ll get to read more about in this one!

      1. Amen! I was OK with the ending and when I learned that there was going to be a continuation this year I wasn’t sure if I wanted to pick it up… But warm bodies turned out to be such a great surprise that like you, I plan on giving it a chance!!
