Authors Kissed by the Cover Gods

Posted April 4, 2016 / Book Lists, Features / 14 Comments

HAHA Lauren are you writing about book covers again? Hell yeah, of course I am! I can’t get enough and you really should know that by now. There are some authors out there who have been #blessed with the BEST book covers. Most of their covers – if not all – have been great. If not great, at least VERY good. No one’s perfect, right? This post came to me because I saw the cover for Nicola Yoon’s newest book. i literally gasped at its perfection and thought “damn, she’s been kissed by the cover gods yet again.” Ta-da!


Today you’ll see all sorts of book covers I enjoy and the authors who were lucky to get them. Some authors (ugh I feel terrible about these) are not so lucky. But maybe that’s a post for another day… There are some here that are redesigns of existing book covers, but they’re worthy of recognition too. There’s nothing better than when a previously mediocre or bad cover gets a remake! You’ll see a couple Adult fiction authors make this list too 😉

I loved the typography for the first book and the second one? SWOOOON.emeryOpen Road Summer The Start of Me and You When We Collided
Summer sunsets – sign me up! Even though the third one is a bit different, still love it.emmaFirst & Then This Adventure Ends
Both of these covers are kind of beyond words for me. I love the texture on the second! Ugh.

tjrAfter I Do Maybe in Another Life Forever, Interrupted
I just am so obsessed with these simple covers – two are redesigns and the other is an original.
Plus, her not-yet-released book also has a gorgeous cover, but it’s a little different.

These just make me want/need summertime + ice cream like crazy.nicolaThe Sun Is Also a Star Everything, Everything
These two covers literally take my breath away, not even going to lie.stephMy True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories Summer Days & Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)
The illustrated covers for these anthologies make me SO happy, and I love the Anna series’ colors!jenny hanTo All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1) P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #2)
I love these covers. Her prior trilogy has a gorgeous Target-exclusive bindup too! There are shockingly no official cover images for it online, so click the other link to see Han’s picture!

  1. LOVE your choices!! The cover for This Adventure Ends looks BEAUTIFUL!! And I love how the font on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s books ties them together. I didn’t realize font could do that so perfectly! I can’t even imagine being an author and having to live with a cover on my book that I didn’t 100% love! That would be rough. I like when they redesign bad book covers, but I’m NOT a fan when they do it with beautifully, amazing ones. If you got it right the first time, please don’t change it publishing people!!

  2. What a beautiful collection of covers! I’m seriously obsessed with all of these, and I can’t wait to see the actual books for myself 🙂 Thank you for once again sharing such a visually pleasing post!

  3. Totally agree with these! It’s funny, some authors really do hit the cover jackpot over and over, and some… yikes hahah. I have seen SO many great ones lately (the Nicola Yoon one is like, cover goals). I even like the paperback of The Start of Me and You (fine, fine, I freaking love it) 😀 Thanks for sharing these!
