Happy 4th of July everyone. To celebrate we’re sharing some of our favorite red, white and blue book covers. YA covers are usually pretty, so we had a tough time picking our favorites. Did we miss one of your proffered book covers? Let us know in the comments!
1. Blood & Honey by Shelby Mahurin
Blood & Honey is one of the prettiest book covers. From the bright red background to the gold highlights, it shines just like a firework in the night sky.
Los Angeles: The California Dream. While it’s not our goal to be a celeb, it’s always a fun plot point. We listed our favorite books set in LA and can’t wait to share! Let us know if you’ve read any in the comments .
1. The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare
Set five years after The Mortal Instruments, we see Emma Cartiars and Julian Blackthorn at age 17. The Dark Artifices follows a group of shadowhunters at the Los Angeles Institute. Emma and Julian investigate a demonic plot, which takes through the city and around the amazing beaches. The Dark Artifices features old favorite characters, but has a completely different vibe from Clare’s other books. LA is a lot different from NYC and London. If you’re looking for a fantasy with California sunshine, look no further!
Books make great presents! No matter which holiday you celebrate, everyone could use a new book in their lives.
