Joyfully Jay Best of 2022 badgeHi all! So last week, we shared our Best Books of 2022 and today we are sharing my favorite covers. I am a firm believer that good covers can sell a book (and sadly bad covers can hurt one), so I always like to recognize beautiful covers that draw me in and make me want to read the story inside.

Here are my favorites from what we reviewed on Joyfully Jay this year. Some of them I chose because they so perfectly evoke the story, some because they are a unique or interesting style, and some just because I thought they were beautiful.
