Cover Trend Alert: Millennial Pink Is Stronger Than Ever

We’ve covered this trend once before but I think its continued presence warrants a revisit (you’ll notice a slew of 2018 and 2019 titles represented in this round-up). Plus, I recently learned that the Pantone color of the year is 16-1546, a.k.a. Living Coral. Plus, pink was clearly the color on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday.

So for those not wanting to be left out, here’s an über trend reading list (organized by publication date) to fit the aesthetic that just won’t quit. With plenty of shades—and genres!—there’s surely something for every reader.
