Happy Tuesday, book friends! I woke up with a sore throat and general tiredness, so I’m a bit out of this morning. I don’t feel too bad, so long as I’m sitting down, so here’s hoping it’s just a mild cold.
This week’s topic for Top 5 Tuesday is the top 5 book covers of the year! Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Bionic Bookworm, now hosted by Meeghan Reads. If you’re interested in participating, check out their blog to get the details and the prompts for each week.
I love this prompt because I feel like readers all have different tastes when it comes to covers, so I’m sure there will be a lot of variety. Here are my favorite covers (that I can think of at the moment) from the year.
Legends & Lattes (Hardcover Edition) by Travis Baldree
I read this book on audio, but am very tempted to buy a copy of this hardcover re-release. I just love the fun, chalkboard-inspired look of this one and how it ties in with the story.
Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus
This cover is so eye-catching, and I think it does fit the vibe of the book in a weird way, even if the book does tackle some heavier topics than the salmon-colored cover might imply.
I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy
I can’t decide if I love or hate this cover, but I can’t deny that it’s eye-catching and provacative. McCurdy smiling and posing with a bright pink urn, set against the yellow backdrop, just pops. There’s also a retro vibe to the cover design that somehow works really well with the fact that she was a child star on Nikelodeon (side note: in their reiews, a lot of people keep mis-identifying her as a Disney star and this really irks me, for some reason?)
The Kiss Curse by Erin Sterling
There’s just something about the covers for this series. They’re fun and a little bit witchy while still capturing that Bookstagram darling contemporary romance vibe.
To Get to the Other Side by Kelly Ohlert
When I requested this book on NetGalley, it was largely because of the fantastically fun cover with a woman chasing a chicken across the road. I mean, how can you not want to read that?
Have I forgotten or left off some phenomenal covers? I’m sure I have. What are some of your favorites from the year?

The cover for To Get To the Other Side is great. Love seeing Chick-Chick running about and Bear stressed out in the background
Yes! It fits the characters so well.
Love the Lessons in Chemistry book cover as well, so cool! Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow book cover is also a favorite of the year for me. I haven’t read either books yet, I’m waiting for the books to come out in paperback.
I like the Tomorrow x3 cover as well! I hope you enjoy both of them when you get around to them! Highly recommend them both, and not just for the covers lol.
I hope it’s just a minor cold, and you get much better soon. My favorite cover is Get To the Other Side, as I love chickens.
The chicken on To Get to the Other Side is so cute. I hope you feel better soon
Thank you! It’s a relatively mild cold so I’m doing just fine 🙂
Oooh, I haven’t seen that version of Legends and Lattes before — only the one with the orc. Thank you for joining this week (and all the other weeks I am yet to catch up on)!!
Thank you for the wonderful prompts!
