Favorite Book Covers of 2021

I got this idea from Rachel, who annually posts her favorite book covers of the year! It’s honestly one of my favorite posts that she does, so I don’t know why I haven’t done my own in previous years, but here we are!

To clarify: these books are all published in 2021, and I have not read all of them, nor do I necessarily want to read all of them. We’re going purely off looks here!

Onto the books!

  • A Desolation Called Peace by Arkady Martine (Tordotcom)
  • She Who Became the Sun by Shelley Parker Chan (Tor)
  • The Shadow of the Gods by John Gwynne (Orbit)
  • American Betiya by Anuradha D. Rajurkar (Knopf)
  • Everyone Dies Famous in a Small Town by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock (Random House)
  • After Alice Fell by Kim Taylor Blakemore (Lake Union)
  • A Master of Djinn by P. Djeli Clark (Tor)
  • Fault Lines by Emily Itami (Custom House)
  • Triflers Need Not Apply by Camilla Bruce (Penguin)
  • The Lights of Prague by Nicole Jarvis (Titan)
  • Revelator by Daryl Gregory (Knopf)
  • Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim (Hodder and Stoughton)
  • For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten (Orbit)
  • The Lighthouse Witches by CJ Cooke (HarperCollins)
  • Seven Deaths of an Empire by G.R. Matthews (Solaris)

I can’t really discern a clear theme here except that I seem to really appreciate fantasy covers.
