Cover Trend Alert is a new feature hosted here at Books for Thought. It’s a monthly feature that discusses a young adult book cover trend (sometimes other age groups) we’ve being seeing within the last year or so. Each month there’s a new theme so make sure you come back to see what else has been trending!
The trend this month is: simple black designs. I don’t think this is a trend that will go away any time soon but I’m sure it’ll die down a little because we saw a lot of it in 2016 and I’m only seeing a few so far for 2017. I’m a big fan of simple book covers so this is a trend that I don’t mind seeing a lot of. Black seems to be a popular colour with book covers though so I hope that we start moving away from it this year and come up with some more colourful covers. Here are some recent covers I found that follow this cover trend:
