TCL’s #T5T – Top Five Tuesday #5 – December 14, 2021 – Favorite 2021 Covers.


Top Five Tuesday was originally created by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, but is now hosted by Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads. To participate, link your post back to Meeghan’s blog or leave a comment on her weekly post.

This week, Meeghan asked us to put up our Five Favorite Book Covers of 2021!

Well, there were a whole lot of beautiful covers this year, and a few I didn’t like much, but I still loved the book. This is quite an eclectic collection, and interestingly enough, all these books got high marks from me. So without any further ado, let’s judge some books by their covers….

Rose Code#5 – The Rose Code by Kate Quinn.

I’m not a huge lover of yellow, but for some reason, this cover really captured my attention. You can read my review here.

SomebodyLovesYou_RGB_MR-994x1536#4 – Somebody Loves You by Mona Arshi.

Apparently, this is one of two covers where the only difference is the color scheme. I don’t know, there’s something very appealing about this one.

In the crypt with a candlestick#3 – In the Crypt with a Candlestick by Daisy Waugh.

I just adored the Art Deco design for this book, which surprised me since it is a contemporary murder mystery novel!

ever rest#2 – Ever Rest by Roz Morris.

I would have read this even if I didn’t know Roz’s writing, just from this very evocative looking cover. I think it is perfect!

A Betting Woman#1 – A Betting Woman by Jenni L. Walsh.

Normally, I don’t care for full-face pictures of women on the covers of novels, especially in historical fiction books. That’s because far too often than not, the woman looks far too modern. But this one… it looked just right, with that hat, the way the “A” makes a little mustache on her face, the lacy background… I mean, can you imagine a better cover? I can’t! That’s why this is my favorite cover of the year!

      1. I doubt it makes any difference, I just feel bad sometimes when I come up with twenty or more for our top TEN list. LOL

  2. I thought that The Rose Code was lovely too.

    I have far too many book covers that I could mention here, but I really liked the cover of The Tsarina’s Daughter by Ellen Alpsten, you have inspired me to do a similar post, perhaps as an end of year one. Thank you.
