Judging Books by Their Covers #2: Candy

Judging Books by Their Covers is a feature I do every once in a while to showcase some book covers. Each post, I choose one category and some book covers that fit into that category, and talk about whether or not I like those covers. You can read some earlier posts in this feature here.

The links will take you to the Goodreads pages.

Today's category is: candy!

Sweethearts by Sara Zarr
Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler

The Summer of Firsts and Lasts by Terra Elan McVoy
Ex-Mas by Kate Brian

After the Kiss by Terra Elan McVoy
Love? Maybe by Heather Hepler

See You at Harry's by Jo Knowles
The Sweetest Thing by Christina Mandelski

Covers with candy seem very popular lately, especially candy-hearts. But I don't mind - I love books covers with candy! They always look delicious. The prettiest, in my opinion, is Bittersweet, but I like See You at Harry's best because of the connection to the actual story.

What do you think of book covers with candy? Which of these covers is your favorite?


  1. I like Bittersweet the best too! But I thank that Sweethearts is a close second. 

  2. Wow this makes me hungry! I've always loved the Bittersweet cover! <3

  3. I really like Bittersweet but I'm not sure any of these pull me over to them. I'm on the fence with this trend but thanks so much for highlighting all the covers!

  4. From the first time I saw the Bittersweet cover it made me want a cookie lol

    Covers with food on them almost always make me think of romance.

    I love the cover for Bittersweet too. These candy covered covers have my sweet tooth begging for something yummy.

    I loved SWEETHEARTS so I am going to have to vote for that one all the way!  I started reading AFTER THE KISS and that one is a good book.  But if I was choosing a book just based on the cover... I'd go with... SEE YOU AT HARRY'S.  I love small coffee/ice cream shop feel it has even though it really is just a checkered table cloth and an eaten ice cream cup. 


Please leave a comment - I love to hear what you think!
