Top 10 Covers of 2018

Be Merry and Give Books for Christmas!

A book cover is the most important feature of a novel. I always wonder why the author or publisher chooses a particular image to represent the story within the book. Does it grab my attention from a bookshelf? Does it represent the author or characters, especially those of color? Does it really portray the plot? Is it appealing and public-friendly? Most importantly, is it true to the title? These are the factors I considered when choosing the best covers of books I've read this year.
