Anna Ambrose is a newish author who works too many hours a day at her real job while also ruling the roost of a brood of rowdy children. When she’s not dealing with clients, tying shoes, or fixing snacks, she hides behind her computer screen to type out sexy stories about boys kissing boys, girls kissing girls, and every combination in between. Having to shield her screen from little peeping eyes keeps her up late most nights as she spins tales about characters who aren’t afraid to shed their inhibitions and fulfill their every fantasy on the way to finding their happily ever afters. It’s Anna’s hope that her readers can escape from their normal lives into deliciously naughty ones that cause pink cheeks and clenched thighs in public… and closed doors and one-handed reading in private.

Author Anna Ambrose’s Favorite Book Cover Trends

I am a total book cover whor…, well, you know, lol! Book covers are an author’s absolute first impression. Judging a book by its cover is a thing that most people (come on, admit it…) do on a daily basis. Scrolling through Amazon looking for a new book to read, do you stop on books that have drab or boring covers? No? I didn’t think so. Your friend tells you about this really great book she read, so you go look it up, but the first thing you notice is the lackluster cover. Do you have the urge to even read the blurb? Nope. People can’t help it. We want eye-catching, gorgeous, unique, or wow.

If a cover catches my eye, I am more apt to read it, even if the reviews aren’t amazing. I tend to pass over books, even if they have a good reputation, just because the cover is eh. And if a cover looks like a kindergartner made it (unless you can tell it is a professional cover made to be that way), then I’m probably not touching it. Font matters as well. If I can’t read it well, if it takes over and not in a good way, or if it is clumsy or not placed well, I tend to skip it, too. Believe me, I know it isn’t the best way to be. I imagine I miss a few hidden gems that way, but it’s just the way I am. Although, if a book is blowing up the book world with ‘oh my god, best book ever’ and I don’t like the cover, I’ll put the prejudice behind me and read it, but it isn’t often.

Lately, I favor illustrated, animated, bright colors that pop, and/or the new trend of artistic words with no pictures as well. Fantasy covers are usually gorgeous (though not my favorite genre) and PNR book covers have been dominating the top cool covers list. Although there aren’t really on my list, I love them.

Covers have to be unique and eye-catching. I like a wide variety of genres, so I’m always looking for something new to read, and I don’t discriminate on genres. One day, I could be reading a gay romance and the next, you’ll catch me with a young adult dystopian. Books are made to be read, and if I get stuck in one genre, I get bored eventually and won’t read it for a while, which is why I try to switch it up often.

Anyway, here are a few book cover trends that have really left an impression. I wouldn’t call them my favorite books or covers, just ones I remember whenever covers come up in conversations.
