For some reason when I think of colorful summer book covers, what immediately comes to mind is BRIGHT. A palette of bright tones and shading is my idea of summer covers. This even before the imagery of summertime. Not sure the why but there you have it. As we’re in summer, seems a nice day to look at some summer cover art, right?
However imagery of summer is always a plus too and I think I have quite the solid lineup from my shelf that features all of these things! Chances are I’ve read next to none of them but we love to look at the pretties! Let’s jump in.
COLORFUL SUMMER BOOK COVERS
SOMEONE ELSE’S SUMMER, RACHEL BATEMAN
Had this one for years and while its cover art is more carefree, I believe the pages of this novel feature a bittersweet story. But with the yellow shading and beach scene, I couldn’t not add this one. Amazon | Goodreads
NO WORDS, MEG CABOTCOLORFUL BOOK COVER ART OF SUMMER! #SUMMERBOOKCOVERS #COLORFULBOOKCOVERS #BOOKCOVERS #JENNYHAN #SUMMERTIME #TOPTENTUESDAY #READERS #READING Click To Tweet
HAPPINESS FOR BEGINNERS, KATHERINE CENTER
Seems like, based on coloring alone, almost any of Katherine’s novels would fit on this kind of list. I think beyond that, it’s all of the flower imagery that puts it squarely on the list. Amazon | Goodreads
THE SUMMER I TURNED PRETTY, JENNY HAN
PEOPLE WE MEET ON VACATION, EMILY HENRY
This is like the trifecta! Between the title, colors and imagery, it’s a SOLID look and makes anyone looking for a read to enjoy on the beach reaching for it. Or at least I’d assume so. Honestly, the more I read about Emily’s novels (reviews) coupled with how I felt about Beach Read, and I’ll likely ditch this one. Probably will list this (maybe this week) on eBay because I just doubt I’ll enjoy this author. Amazon | Goodreads
SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE, MORGAN MATSON
I’m pretty sure almost any of Morgan’s books would fit on a list like this simply because they are a whole summer vibe. This one may not be as bright with its color use, but there IS ice cream so that’s a win. Amazon | Goodreads
POSTCARDS FROM SUMMER, CYNTHIA PLATT
Don’t know much of anything about this title honestly. I saw it in an unhaul video and then next time I was out shopping it was sitting on, I think a Walmart shelf, so I grabbed it. Just cuz. Is this one any good? Amazon | Goodreads
THE MATCHBREAKER SUMMER, ANNIE RAINS
THE AUSTEN ESCAPE, KATHERINE REAY
THE OHANA COTTAGE, MEGAN REINKING
Saw this one somewhere – on a list maybe? – and decided to give it a chance. Luckily I found it in paperback on a smaller retailer site and so I went for it. It’s not perhaps as summer-y as some of these others, but it earns its place among summer covers. Amazon | Goodreads
DIAL A FOR AUNTIES, JESSE Q. SUTANTO
LISTEN TO YOUR HEART, KASIE WEST
IF I’M BEING HONEST, EMILY WIBBERLEY + AUSTIN SIEGEMUND-BROKA
