Happy spring! We love a good book cover here at the Riot, and what better way to celebrate than with a collection of (some of) the great new book covers hitting shelves in April? Some of these are reprints or paperbacks, but mostly they are new books! Yay, new books!
We don’t want to endorse judging these books by their covers, but, we also wouldn’t endorse you *not* judging these books by their awesome new book covers.
