When it comes to books, one of my favorite things to talk about is cover design! I’ve had the chance to interview cover designers (for online blogs) and am not above admitting that I’m a cover snob. Today we’re talking a specific kind of cover design in books with nature on the cover or as part of their look!
As I sat in front of my bookshelf to work up these titles, I realized that maybe I’m running out of books to put into a rotation so that there are new titles! It’s kind of sad because I like to feature books I own rather than pretty things I find on Goodreads but no nothing about. Still, that might have to happen because with these lists, I also like to try to feature titles that I don’t recycle. Ah, well! That’s a topic to wonder over another day. Let’s look at these book designs where scenes of nature play a big role – and some may be stretching things just a teeny tiny bit!
BOOKS WITH NATURE ON THE COVER
1: TO GET TO YOU, JOANNE BISCHOF
2: TO THE FARTHEST SHORES, ELIZABETH CAMDEN
Cannot remember if I’ve read this one, but I’ve loved some of Elizabeth Camden’s historicals and others I thought weren’t great. But either way, this cover is pretty dang pretty! Amazon | Bookshop.org | Goodreads
3: THE VIEW FROM RAINSHADOW BAY, COLLEEN COBLE
Haven’t read this one either (lots on this list I haven’t), but I used to read Colleen’s books all the time and I loved them. It’d actually be fun for me to read another of her books today to see if I still enjoy them. But that aside, isn’t this cover a stunner!? Amazon | Bookshop.org | Goodreads
4: THE SWEENEY SISTERS, LIAN DOLAN
Just added this one to my shelf, and I know little about it, but it’s pretty! I’m stretching the whole “nature” part a bit since this is more of a clip art kind of situation, but whatever. I like this design and it looks very “organic.” Amazon | Bookshop.org | Goodreads
5: TO LOVE A PRINCE, RACHEL HAUCK
6: TWICE SHY, SARAH HOGLE
This is another illustrated type cover so it may be stretching our theme, but as it’s a new addition to my shelf, I kind of had to include it (plus there’s a tree branch and some foliage, real or not!).
