Favorite Book Covers From Our Reads This Year – what did you like about each one?
I read lots of beautiful books this year. Here are some of my favourites!
Sugarbread – Balli Kaur Jaswal
I have to say that I just adore this one. I feel like Singapore’s publishing industry has evolved a lot in the past few years and I like that more attention is being paid to the artwork on covers too.
The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye – Sonny Liew
This isn’t the version of the book I have (see below). But I kind of adore this one, which has the look of a traditional Chinese ad in Singapore.
I love this one – both the simple cover and the stories that Lucia Berlin tells
Mercury – Margot Livesey (my thoughts)
The blurry horse in the background is a hint at what the story is about.
Flight – Oona Frawley (my thoughts)
Sometimes the simplest of covers work best
The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet – Becky Chambers
Who wouldn’t gaze at this image and wonder what the universe is like?
