No idea but in things: A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside of it
Walking Through Fire by Sherri Cook Woosley – on the cover you have the mother and her son walking up on a flaming Baltimore City as balls of fire shoot from the sky and there’s something mystical in the fire… This scene is pretty much the start of the book and all you need to know going into it–a magical apocalypse occurs and a mother will do anything to protect her son.
Sugary sweet: A cover that is so sweet you want to give it a hug
Most recently, Half a Soul by Olivia Atwater. I really have a thing for more ‘abstract’ covers? Not that this one is really abstract but it doesn’t have people on it it, it’s not a scene, etc. But it still manages to convey the tone of the book somehow and the color just makes me feel happy and has a certain sweetness with the way it’s designed.
The simple aesthetic: A book that stuns with the most minimalistic of designs
I’ve always liked this cover of A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. It’s very minimalist and yet it feels….important? Maybe it’s the color or the way there’s a fade in the middle or the choice of such a bold font.
Cover envy: A book cover you wish you had on your shelf but you don’t
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow. I only have an audio copy of this and I’d really LOVE a physical copy for my shelves because look how pretty it is! ❤
Travelling Abroad; A book cover that features a country outside of your own
The Shores of Spain by J. Kathleen Cheney! This story takes place in historical Portugal but they travel to Spain in the last novel. Really great series of historical fantasy with lots of mystery thrown in and a bit of romance on the side.
Colour wheel: A book that showcases one of your favourite colours
I think my favorite color is indigo which is this troubling color between purple and blue. It’s deep and it’s cool and I painted a wall in my house this color. ❤ There’s a bit of it in the cover for The Fever King by Victoria Lee.
Switching gears: A cover change you absolutely adore
I don’t know if this counts as a ‘change’ but I LOVE the UK edition of Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa so much more more than the US edition. It’s color is so light and pretty. If I ever order physical copies of the series it will have to be through book depository I think.
‘Oldie but Goodie’: A favourite cover of your favourite classic
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this cover for Frank Herbert’s classic, Dune. It’s minimalist and the colors pop and I especially love the font. It’s just……so pretty to look at.
And the winner is: Which cover above is your favourite?
Oh geez. I think out of all of these….I’d have to go with the Dune cover. It just feels epic and soothing all at once? And that turquoise color is stunning against the orange.
So, that’s it for this tag. Not tagging anyone but if you like this one and feel like filling it out, consider yourself tagged!
