I’ve always loved researching cover trends in YA, and have decided to finally make my own post on the subject! For now at least, I’ll be focusing on trends from 2013.
Girls Dramatically Looking/Walking into the Distance: Backwards Edition
Girls Dramatically Looking/Walking into the Distance: Forwards Edition
Covers that only show the shadow or outline of a girl.
Faces that are shattered or in pieces, with Mila 2.0 as the winner.
An in-your-face trend that’s been gaining popularity over the past couple years.
Partial bodies:Missing heads, cut-off parts, half-bodies, all that jazz.
