I usually don’t judge a book by its cover – and as an avid eBook reader, that’s even more so. However, we can admit there are some books that just take your breath away. It’s love at first sight! Publishers who really know their business always come up with beautiful book covers that add to the experience and enhance our expectations of the story, portraying feelings through images perfectly. Let’s enjoy it!
Part 1 – Books I’ve read
I find both covers for A darker shade of magic by V.E. Schwab gorgeous – one has mystery and shows you Kell’s cloack and its many sides – and the other one depicts moving between worlds as simply as it’s shown in the books. Awesome job!
I love these two because they’re so simple, but effective – in Wonder by R.J. Palacio we never get quite an accurate description of Auggie, but rather these awesome drawings of every character, with their “flaws” portrayed through their appearance. In Eleanor and Park, the cover sets the scene perfectly for what’s to come.
I just love this cover of To Kill a Mockingbird – it’s just beautiful. And Love & Misadventure, a poetry collection by Lang Leav has awesome artwork throughout – the drawing on the cover shows off perfectly how simple, romantic and dreamy the work is.
Part 2 – TBR List
If my favourites in the already read pile are quite simple, I’ll shake things up with the TBR list – detailed, gorgeous and interesting (click on pics for Goodreads link).
I hope you got some inspiration on what to pick up next if you’re looking to beautify your shelves! What are some of your favourite book covers?
🌟 Happy reading! 🌟
