Welcome back to Lamon Reviews.
Every year I try to read a large number of books. And the number of books I see, but never get around to for one reason or another is steadily growing. I have seen several books with absolutely great cover art. And I have books that I can’t remember the cover, but could tell you the plot like I read them yesterday.
Today I want to talk to you about my favorite book covers so far this year. It is on Experimental Magics by Alex Evans. This is book one in the series, so I hope book two will be just as pretty. I think this cover art is gorgeous. If I could get this as a poster, I would hang it in my office!
If there is one book so far that has wonderful illustrations, my vote would be for the childrens book Eli and the Mystery of the Hallowshine Dragon by Eve Cabanel. I read this one about a week ago and have areview for this childrens book planned. I appreciate the art in the illustrations by artist Ekaterina Ilchenko.
I like the swirls, the colors, the ethereal nature to the characters. I think this is a wonderfully illustrated book.
I have two I just want to mention as I like the art. They have also been two of my favorite reads this year. While I liked all of these books, these two I liked most.
Those are the covers that really struck me this year so far. I know the year isn’t over just yet. Plus there are books that came out this year that I haven’t even seen. Most cover art doesn’t hit me as much as the words in the book, but these ones did.
You may notice both a similarity to a couple covers and a 180° turn from the colors to the wonderful steampunk vibes from Experimental Magics. What can I say, my ecclectic tastes vary from book to book.
Now I would like to hear from you!
What cover art has made the biggest impression on you so far this year? Is it a book from this year, or is it a book from a previous year, but you read or reread this year? Let me know in the comments below.
And As Always…
