TTT: Best Book Covers of 2020 Part 1

 Hello, everyone! Today we`re going to chat a bit about book covers. I consider myself a book collector, at least when it comes to classics. I know it may seem silly to own the same book in several editions, but it`s one of the small joys I have in life. My favourites are the Penguin English Library, Puffin Classics and Modern Classics editions. Although, if I had the budget, I would probably buy classics in all the editions.

The discourse changes a bit when it comes to book covers of recent releases. Everyone likes different things, but I tend to gravitate towards dark covers. I love intense colours, and my favourite combination is the classic red and black. I`m not the biggest fan of faces on book covers, but if the artwork is good, I`ll make an exception. With this in mind, here are some books that were released in 2020, that I would buy solely on the cover. 

2020 Book Covers

These are all personal preferences, so I don`t expect everyone to like them. But to me, they`re gorgeous. Also, I`ve included only releases from the first half of 2020, cause I want to make a second part for books released from July to December.
