It can be hard not to judge a book by its cover...and maybe that's not always a bad thing! Some of our favorite books are paired with equally fantastic cover art which perfectly encapsulates the world, feeling, and characters of the story.
Here are five of our favorite books that live up to their stunning covers!
The Turnaway Girls by Hayley Chewins - The turnaway girls are cloistered outside of the city, turning the music of Masters into golden shimmer. When outspoken Delphernia is finally given a chance to leave, she discovers a world full of peril, trust, and hope--where telling the truth is no less important, and courage is a magic of its own.
Healer and Witch by Nancy Werlin - When Sylvie accidentally discovers the true reach of her odd powers--in the worst possible way--she sets out across sixteenth-century France to find someone who can teach her to use her gift. But who, ultimately, can she trust to show her the way?
Eva Evergreen, Semi-Magical Witch by Julie Abe - Eva only has a pinch of magic--and she'll lose even that if she can't complete her novice witch quest. But what if a little magic is all Eva needs to save the day?
Emmy in the Key of Code by Aimee Lucido - Emmy has always loved music, but she's never found a way to make her own--not until she stumbles across the computer lab at her new school, and discovers that maybe coding can be music, too.
A Wolf for a Spell by Karah Sutton - Zima, a wolf, knows to avoid humans and witches, like Baba Yaga. But when Zima's brother is hurt, she must appeal to Baba Yaga for help, and make a bargain that will have far greater consequences than she ever could have imagined.
