Trending Thursday: A Flurry of Feathers


Welcome to a new installment of Trending Thursday, a periodic post in which I discuss various YA trends. This week I'm looking at a cover trend that I've noticed recently:

FEATHERS!

I love the new trend of graphic feathers overwritten with text.

This is Where the World Ends Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender The Probability of Miracles

And I like the giant feathers floating across the cover.

Fire & Flood Antigoddess Salt & Stone

And I like it when feathers are incorporated in other ways.

  1. I think Fracture Me and The Probability of Miracles would have to be my favorites <3

    1. I love the Probability of Miracles. And the feather eyelashes on Fracture Me work perfectly with Juliette crazy metaphors...

  2. Wow. Interesting. Have you read any of these books? Are there birds or other feathered creatures in the stories?

    1. Girl at Midnight, yes. I can't remember about Fire and Flood. And I'm racking my brain about Antigoddess... Haven't read all the others.

  3. Ah yes, wonder which was the catalyst. But I do love pretty much all of these covers

    1. That's a good question. I think a couple of the covers are reissues or redesigns, so it's hard to say..

  4. You're right - I didn't notice how many feathers are in book covers lately. I particularly love the cover for The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. It's simple, but so pretty.

  6. I love feathers too! I have noticed them a lot lately…too bad my copy of Antigoddess (which I just got, btw) doesn’t have the feather on it.
    I even saw some really cool feathers I was gonna incorporate onto my blog but it kinda clashed with the others :)

  10. I remember doing a cover feature on this too. :) The three I picked then were Ava Lavender, Probability and Magonia, which I was surprised you missed on this list. :) Haha.

    I really love this trend. Especially with This Is Where The World Ends. It looks so amazing. Salt & Stone and The Girl At Midnight are super pretty too.

  11. How creative and gorgeous are these feather books? This trend is completely gorgeous and I love how they've been incorporated. I haven't seen the cover for the Probability of Miracles but that's probably my favourite here!

  12. I get bored when any type of cover becomes a trend but the feathers are so pretty on all of them!

  13. I didn't realise the feather trend until I saw this but I really like it and I think I may be drawn to books with feathers on them because I notice a few of these!

  14. YES! There are so many feather covers now, I've started confusing them! I won't lie, they are really pretty to look at!

  15. Woooowww... I never really noticed! You make a good point though, haha. They are pretty to look at! The Incarnate trilogy has the best covers ever! So beautiful!
