Cover Chat: Have YA Covers Got the Blues?



Hello and welcome to Cover Chat. Grab some coffee and let's talk covers!

Recently I did a post about green covers: how someone decided they're unlucky but how (it seems to me) that there are a bunch of gorgeous ones in YA lately.

I've also noticed something else about color covers: a lot of deep royal blue. Excuse me, Pantone calls it "snorkel blue" (which sounds a bit elitist but whatever. I'd call it "texting bubble blue"...)  

In any case, InStyle magazine says it's in fashion this spring:


I found the color in a lot of products around my house:


And, yes, because YA is where it's at, on a lot of 2016 covers too:

  6. I also noticed that so many great books have blue covers. In my own collection, the color of books I own the most is - you can guess it - blue!
    Here you spotted some really beautiful ones.
    And omG, The Raven King - tell me, can the cover be more beautiful that that??

  7. I loved the green covers (green's my favorite color so natch) but these are nice too. The blue makes a lot of these covers seem soothing, at least to me- I like Gold Fish and Meet Me Here a lot, and London Belongs To Us is nice too.

  8. Well the Raven King is here so I am IMMEDIATELY a fan of this shade of blue. XDXD
    Blue is actually the biggest colour that I own in my shelves! (It's easy to tell because I colour-code, ahahha ahem.) But I have 3 shelves of blue books!!
