Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 63: Literary Fiction (Part 6)

Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I pay tribute to some of the best and brightest the publishing world has to offer in the way of book cover design. This feature is inspired by Katie’s feature Cover Love on her blog One Page At A Time. The idea is being used with her gracious permission.

Some of my favourite covers this week include Wreck and Order by Hannah Tennant-Moore, Tuesday Nights In 1980 by Molly Prentiss, Modern Lovers by Emma Straub, Ema The Captive by César Aira, Eleven Hours by Pamela Erens, This Close by Jessica Francis Kane, Cat & Fiddle by Lesley Jorgensen, In Some Other World, Maybe by Shari Goldhagen, The Association Of Small Bombs by Karan Mahajan, Hope Farm by Peggy Frew and The Maker Of Swans by Paraic O’Donnell.

  1. So many lovely ones! I hadn’t seen the paperback FATES AND FURIES before this. I love ALL MY PUNY SORROWS–the book and the cover! Miriam Toews is amazing.

  2. I really really love Literary Fiction covers — my recent favorites are Dear Fang, With Love; Dancing With The Tiger; Gold Fame Citrus; and Relief Map

    Of those above, I am in absolutely adoration with the covers for Mislaid, This Close and A General Theory of Oblivion

Hi! I’m Jen! I’m a thirty-something introvert who loves nothing more than the cozy comfort of home and snuggling my two rescue cats, Pepper and Pancakes. I also enjoy running, jigsaw puzzles, baking and everything Disney. Few things bring me more joy than helping a reader find the right book for them!
