Top 10 Fall Book Covers

Happy #TopTenTuesday Savvy Readers!

It’s safe to say that winter is definitely coming (especially in Canada), which means you’re going to want to curl up with a good book (by the fireplace perhaps?). So we thought now would be a good time to look back on all the new books released over the last few months and make some TBR picks!

I’ve created a round-up of my picks for the Top Ten Fall Book Covers because, in my opinion, there are two types of people in the world: those who judge books by their covers and liars.

I’m certainly guilty of this, but I can’t help it I JUST LOVE AESTHETICALLY PLEASING THINGS.



So, without further ado, here are we go!

I’ll Take You There by Wally Lamb


Like I said, I’m a sucker for a good aesthetic, and I’m INTO the film reel vibes on this cover. There’s something so classic about the portrait, it makes me think of the photos of my parents and aunts and uncles my grandmothers keep on display. Which is excellent. Makes me feel right at home!

A Night in With Grace Kelly by Lucy Holliday


I’m also a sucker for illustrated covers! I’m in LOVE with Lucy Holliday’s A Night In With books (check out Audrey and Marilyn too!). Minimalism meets glamour in one beautiful package.


Hi, Anxiety: Life with A Bad Case of Nerves by Kat Kinsman


I love witty titles and bunnies. So I obviously love this cover. I also love books that address mental health and help everyone navigate life a little more easily. So there’s a lot to love here.


Moonglow by Michael Chabon


I’m terrified of fire, and all things necessary for the creation of fire (like matches), yet I’m somehow wildly attracted to this cover? The colours are fabulous (and very autumnal), and the title definitely catches my attention.


Lyrebird by Cecelia Ahern


Um, did I mention I love illustrated covers?? Because, my goodness this one is gorgeous! I kind of love that based solely on the front cover I have no idea what this book is about yet I’m still inclined to pick it up. I also really like feathers, so that could be part of it.


Leave Me by Gayle Forman


Horizontal stripes may be a fashion faux pas, but this cover sure makes it work. Again its simple, the colours catch my eye and the title intrigues me. It’s called Leave Me, but I didn’t want to leave this one off the list (…yikes, that was bad. Sorry!).


A Number of Things by Jane Urquhart


Not gonna lie, I like this goose. He’s mischievous and he knows it. I respect that. Plus, it doesn’t get much more Canadian than a Canada Goose, am I right?


Not Just Jane by Shelley DeWees


Love these repurposed silhouettes. L-O-V-E! The classic silhouette for these classic ladies with the added twist of bright pink accessories. What’s not to love?


Soulmates by Jessica Grose


I just really like the use of fingerprints to make a heart. Also there’s just something about the use of all lowercase letters in the title. Minimal design, maximum affect.


Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly


There’s almost nothing I love more than a fierce woman. And this cover has THREE. Needless to say, I’m kind of obsessed with this movie tie-in cover (available December 6th, and the movie is in theatres December 25—get reading)!

So Savvy readers, which of these covers do you like best? And which category of people do you fall into: cover judger or liar? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter @SavvyReader!
