  3. The Portrait of a Mirror by A. Natasha Joukovsky (Harry N. Abrams)
  4. Ghosted by Jenn Ashworth (Sceptre, UK)
  5. Ghost Forest by Pik-Shuen Fung (One World)

    • Ooh I’m still catching up with everyone’s end of year posts so thank you for linking!! The Ghosted cover is SO GOOD, I really need to get a copy of that book.


  1. All the 2021 books I bought this year had pretty boring covers, and in at least one case, suffered from a boring North American cover (Civilizations by Laurent Binet… French cover is very cool, ours is blah). A Passage North and My Phantoms are the others that come to mind, pretty forgettable.
