Favourite 2018 Book Covers

These are my favourite covers of the books that I have read over the course of 2018. They are in no particular order, more of a celebration of the importance that the cover of a book has to get noticed in a bookshop or library when people are browsing. The use of foil blocking on them makes some of these below, sparkle and glisten, so do take a moment to find them as the images are a pale shadow of the actual covers.

  1. That first one – for Black Sea – is so striking! I know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but some of them are just so eye-catching it’s hard to avoid…

    I love these. You’re so right – a good cover does make you pick a book up.
