2021 Book Cover Preview

Hi Gemmies! As the new year approaches I wanted to do a recap of all of the beautiful book covers coming in 2021. Next year is going to be amazing and I am so excited to see such an abundant offering of diverse books. We have Black, Latino, Asian, and Gay representation. And this is just a short list! I'm sure more announcements and cover reveals are forth coming


All of these images are so powerful! I wish I had this variety of books with characters that look like me on the cover when I was growing up. I'm so excited for young readers growing up today! I cannot wait to read all of these gems and add them to my personal library. On a side note....I continue to pray to the book gods that we will also get the third book in the Children of Blood and Bone series by Tomi Adeyemi and a sequel to Legendborn by Tracy Deonn!!
