I read lots of beautiful books this year. Here are some of my favourites!

sugarbread

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.

Mr Splitfoot – Samantha Hunt
An intriguing cover!

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

longway

The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet – Becky Chambers

Who wouldn’t gaze at this image and wonder what the universe is like?

What covers were among your favourites this year?

  1. My copy of The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye has finally come in to the library; I’m really looking forward to it. Thanks for the rec’s! (As always.)
