I’ll be posting the 2014 Overall Best Book Cover Winner (both Readers Choice and Staff Choice) very soon. But in the meantime, here are the 2014 Best Book Cover Genre Winners as picked by the New LDS Fiction staff (aka, me). Later this week, I’ll post comments on the individual genre finalist posts stating what I loved about each cover. (Feel free to do the same.)

I picked my favorites before the voting started. Sometimes the voters and I agreed, sometimes we didn’t. It’s always fun for me to see the difference in tastes.

Remember, these “best” covers are completely subjective and you’ll probably get a good idea of my own personal taste and style here. Just know that there are so many covers that I liked—a LOT—and it was really difficult picking these. Click here to see the Readers Choice winners.
