7 Simple Book Covers of 2016 That Speak To You

When it’s cold out, the chill already leaves you a bit breathless, but there are some books set to come out over the course of the coming year that will really take your breath away, just with the power of their cover art! Here are some of my favorite book covers of future releases in 2016 that have left me speechless with their simplicity. Whether they’re graphic, old school drawn and painted or photographed, these covers say so much more than you’d expect upon first glance.

Cover_Shelter

Shelter by Jung Yun

Release Date: March 2016

A cover that beautifully complements the title and genre that it represents. It begins the story of the book before you even pick it up!

Cover_The North Water

The North Water by Ian McGuire (Paperback edition)

Release Date: February 2016

Nothing against the Hardcover edition, but I just don’t think it holds a candle next to the beautiful painted cover of the Paperback. This is a cover that I would pick up immediately and coo over for a good minute before I cracked it open.

Cover_The Nest

The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

Release Date: March 2016

There’s a lot going for this deceptively simple cover. The vintage design and empty family crest, the muted yet pleasant colors and, of course, the thumbs-up quote from my lady crush Amy Poehler.

Cover_Eligible

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

Release Date: April 2016

How much do I love that combination of script fonts? Almost as much as I adore the hand-drawn image of the ginormous diamond ring!

The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick

Release Date: May 2016

This cover definitely incites curiosity and a bit of wanderlust with just a few simple images. If you loved this cover as I do, you should see it in motion in this adorable new book trailer!

Cover_Conrad and Eleanor 2

Conrad & Eleanor by Jane Rogers

Release Date: June 2016

How can a cover have so little and yet say so much? If this wouldn’t intrigue you enough to pick it up and read the plot synopsis to see if it’s what you guessed … I’ll just do it for you!

Cover_The Runaway Wife

The Runaway Wife by Elizabeth Birkelund

Release Date: June 2016

OK, this is a total bias to my personal tastes, because I’m a self-professed mountain girl AND have always been a sucker for 2d graphic animation, but you have to admit this is a cute cover! I especially love the little house tucked away between the peaks up top. The plot sounds just as quirky and endearing as the cover too!

Gina studied both English and Criminology in university, so it should come as no surprise that some of her favorite reads are mysteries and crime fiction. If not with her books, she is most likely playing instruments (usually guitar) and singing obnoxiously or lost in the world of Pinterest with a cup of strong black coffee.
