Top Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes
Even though I’m in Australia and we’re firmly in Springtime now, I’m still doing this ‘Autumn’ themed cover list.
Boundless (Unearthly #3) by Cynthia Hand
The Australian cover of Boundless is just so insanely gorgeous and autumnal, like how can you look at that and NOT think ‘Hey, it’s autumn!”
Abhorsen (Old Kingdom #3) by Garth Nix
The colour scheme is just so vivid with the reds and oranges.
Sinner (Wolves of Mercy Falls #4) by Maggie Stiefvater
This colour evokes the yellows and oranges found in autumn, even though it’s set during summer.
Pointe, Claw by Amber J Keyser
Another gorgeous colour scheme using autumn colours of yellow and brown.
This Shattered World (Starbound #2) by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Even though this is a space background, the use of jewel tones and bright orange makes me think of autumn.
The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest by Melanie Dickerson
I think it’s the use of the colder pallet and jewel-green cloak that hints at the oncoming colder weather, along with the flower-coloured fancy thingy at the bottom that makes me think ‘autumn’ when I look at this cover. Do you know what the fancy thingy at the bottom is called? Let me know in the comments.
Dauntless by Dina L Sleiman
I think it’s something to do with forests that make good autumn-looking covers. Look at this colour scheme! Red-brown, bright green, paler green in the background. It really evokes autumn and forests at the same time.
An Uncertain Choice by Jody Hedlund
I think these medieval-themed books with white girls in gorgeous old-fashioned dresses really grab the eye, and my theory is that these historical dresses have the jewel-like tones we associate with autumn, because dresses set in thee historical times were less elaborate and more practical in use, but still eye-catching. The bright green of the grass and the cold glare of the sun help to evoke an autumnal feel to this cover.
A Daring Sacrifice (An Uncertain Choice #2) by Jody Hedlund
I’m sticking with my ‘jewel-toned dresses’ theory because this the sequel to the book mentioned above.
Heir to the Sky by Amanda Sun
I dunno, I just get a ‘fall’ feeling when I look at it. Get it? Because she’s falling? Ha.
