Colored Snowflakes: 15 of the Pretty Christmas Book Covers

December 7, 2020 19 Comments

I’m all about book covers that are fun and bright and pretty. As a result of this I’m also 100% a cover buy kind of reader. Today we’re looking at some of the Christmas book covers and titles that immediately suggest Christmas-time!

LIST | A Simple and Sweet 2020 Gift Guide

Some of these are more festive than others, but all in all, this seems like a solid round-up of seasonal cover designs. There’s some that are more Christmas and others more winter-like, but either way, they fit the season we’re in, and who doesn’t love a good cover design? Let’s have a look at these ‘painted snowflakes,’ shall we? Plus, who knows! Perhaps you’ll find a possible new read to enjoy.

Christmas Book Covers and Titles

Note: I haven’t read all of these, nor do I like some of them I’ve read. Many of these are also secular fiction if you don’t care for that genre.

1: My True Love Gave to Me (Novella Collection)

This one is, mostly, cute. I don’t love every story, and some I even skipped by, but there are a few I enjoyed and so I do still own this winter wonderland covered book. Amazon | Goodreads

2: What Light, Jay Asher

I mean, the bokeh effect that looks like lights and the overall winter-y look makes this another ideal pick. Amazon | Goodreads

3: The 12 Dates of Christmas, Jenny Bayliss

I mean, is there anything much more reminiscent of the winter season than a cute figure skating moment? Amazon | Goodreads

4: 10 Blind Dates, Ashley Elston

Ok, yes, I realize I used this one a lot in these seasonal lists, but I mean, we have to admit the obvious. This cover is pretty perfect for this time of year. Amazon | Goodreads

5: Bespoke, Amanda Dykes

One has to add at least one elegant design. The pretty red cape ensures this one will be just that. (And this author is an award-winning new favorite, too!) Amazon | Goodreads

6: While it Was Snowing, Tari Faris

Again, a cover design that simply needs no explanation; it screams (in all of the good ways) Christmas-y festive! Amazon | Goodreads

7: A Royal Christmas Quandary, Samantha Hastings

I wanted to feature a book (or two!) that is unusual in that I don’t feature it here, and this YA historical seems a good bet. Oh! And it says it’s perfect for fans of A Christmas Prince (Netflix), so there’s that too… Amazon | Goodreads

8: Christmas in Three Quarter Time, Rachel McMillan

This surprise release by Rachel is another pretty winter scene; and I love the shades of blue the cover boasts. Amazon | Goodreads

9: Christmas at the Red Door Inn, Liz Johnson

It’s just festive and fun with the snowfall, and of course, that red scarf, too! Amazon | Goodreads

10: It Happened at Christmas, Christen Krumm

I really like this sweet cover, but really, I love the story inside. It’s just so sweet, and it’s a loose While You Were Sleeping (YA) re-telling, so there’s that too. Amazon | Goodreads

11: In a Holidaze, Christina Lauren

I love when Christmas colors aren’t of the traditional variety. This novel certainly takes that idea and runs with it with its lime green color, and the ornaments are a nice (appropriate) festive add on. Amazon | Goodreads

12: Second Chance Christmas, Bell Renshaw

Indie author Bell Renshaw releases her third Christmas novel this year, and it’s another sweet (and cozy) portrait of what is sure to be a fun romantic-comedy. Amazon | Goodreads

13: #AllIWantForChristmas, Yesinia Vargas

Don’t know a thing about this one or its author, but it sounds cute – sort of Let It Snow-ish? Plus, it’s a mere 84 pages, so it’d be a great mini road trip read! Amazon | Goodreads

14: A Match Made at Christmas, Courtney Walsh

This is one of those charming and swoony covers that just works. Plus I adore the “pop” of red. Amazon | Goodreads

15: Baby It’s Cold Outside, Susan May Warren

Haven’t read this one yet, but the whimsical winter scene of its cover makes it look all kinds of cozy! Amazon | Goodreads

      Isn’t it? Love that it’s Christmas-y, but not the traditional colors. :)

  • Greg December 8, 2020 at 3:49 PM

    I really liked My True Love Gave To Me. Like you said, not every story, but just the idea of a holiday anthology like that. I wish we’d get more! And I love love love the cover Holidaze- it’s so bright and festive haha!

    • Rissi JC December 8, 2020 at 7:02 PM

      YES! It’s such a fun read, and I agree. We do need more collections that feature Christmas-y stories. Oh, and I agree. ‘Holidaze’ is just such a cute and bright cover. Love it.

  • Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse December 8, 2020 at 4:29 PM

    I’ve always loved that What Light cover. The story is good, too. ;)

    • Rissi JC December 8, 2020 at 7:04 PM

      SAME! It’s just a really sweet (almost swoony) cover and like you, I like the story. :)

  • Christopher @ Plucked from the Stacks December 8, 2020 at 11:04 PM

    I can’t get over that cover for Baby It’s Cold Outside. How cute! I’ve seen it mentioned a few times this week and I’m looking forward to grabbing a copy.

  • Lindsey @ Lindsey Reads December 9, 2020 at 12:46 PM

    I love the look of these covers, they’re perfect to get into the Christmas spirit :) I read Ten Blind Dates and In A Holidaze and loved both, and really want to read The Twelve Dates of Christmas.

  • Aj @ Read All The Things! December 10, 2020 at 7:46 PM

    These covers are adorable! They look perfect for Christmas. Very cozy.
