10 YA Books as Christmas Sweaters | #YACountdown

YA Christmas Sweaters

Stay Bookish is counting down to the end of 2017, and counting all the awesome YA books while we’re at it. YA Countdown is a feature series aiming to not just recap the best books of the year, but also to have lots of fun with YA before the year ends so we can look forward to 2018.

To kick off our YA Countdown, with 10 days to go before the end of the year, we also have 10 YA books to share. The twist? I’ve revamped their covers to look like Christmas Sweaters. Except they’re not “ugly” YA Christmas sweaters– they’re rather cute.

I kinda patted myself on the back there, but I just had a ton of fun working on these covers! My co-bloggers were the one who came up with the idea of making Christmas editions of YA book covers, but I decided on creating sweater designs because I stumbled upon the awesome Christmas Sweater Effect on Creative Market.

I enjoyed experimenting, and I’m looking forward to sharing more YA Cover revamps come 2018 because my co-bloggers and I have decided to bring back and modify my old Cover Creatives feature. Consider this a preview of what’s to come!

YA Christmas Sweater - A List of Cages

A List of Cages by Robin Roe

I love the silhouetted cover of A List of Cages and I’ve decided to add some more flair (meaning a random reindeer) to it. I’ve yet to read Robin Roe’s book but I’ve heard so many great things. I definitely plan to grab a copy when I can!

YA Christmas Sweater - Alex and Eliza

Alex & Eliza by Melissa De La Cruz

What’s cuter than a Christmas sweater? A couple Christmas sweater! I can totally imagine Alex & Eliza wearing a couple sweater design of their book.

YA Christmas Sweater - The Love Interest

The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich

Who knew a spy book could totally work as a Christmas Sweater? At first, Cale Dietrich’s debut novel looked to cool and badass to be a sweater, so naturally, I added a pattern of Christmas trees and hearts.

YA Christmas Sweater - Turtles All The Way Down

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

Though, Turtles All The Way Down was one of my most awaited YA books this 2017 and I bought a copy as soon as it was released, I haven’t read it yet.

YA Christmas Sweater - Ramona Blue

Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy

This one is still on my TBR pile but I’m definitely planning to read it. And maybe wear it as a sweater? ;)

YA Christmas Sweater - Meet Cute

Meet Cute by Various Authors

I’m so freaking excited about this anthology. Several friends have read this one early and said it lives up to the cute part of the title, so I had to make a cute Christmas sweater out of it.

YA Christmas Sweater - Here We Are Now

Here We Are Now by Jasmine Warga

I fell in love with Here We are Now’s book cover the first time I saw it, and then later on fell in love with the book when I read it.

YA Christmas Sweater - The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

With all the success The Hate U Give has had this year, it deserves all the special editions, including a Christmas Sweater version! Seriously though, this book was amazing and I’m so hyped for the movie.

YA Christmas Sweater - They Both Die at the End

They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

I didn’t think it would be easy to make this one into a Christmas Sweater, but I had to try for Mateo and Rufus. Love those boys so much!

YA Christmas Sweater -  The Upside of Unrequited

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

Of course I wouldn’t miss making a Christmas Sweater for the 2017 book that stole my heart! The shade of blue of the background of Upside’s cover makes such a great color for a Christmas sweater!

  1. Wow, Turtles All the Way Down was born to be turned into a Christmas sweater. I can’t believe it took this long for all of us to realize that! The other designs are equally lovely, and if you ever decide on selling them as actual sweaters, I’ll be the first in line.

    Cheers,
