The Books for Youth department at Booklist has been positively flooded with books whose covers have things in bottles/jars/globes, etc. The two books in Alexandra Bracken’s Passenger series involve boats, one—Nicole Castroman’s Blackhearts—is about pirates, while Ally Condie’s Everlife series concerns warring factions in the realm of the dead.
Is this coincidence, or the glass-covered shape of things to come? You decide. Here’s a list of the bottled books pictured above, with links to their Booklist reviews when possible.
