“No Ideas But in Things” A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it
I realize a lot of people have a love/hate relationship with this series, but I was drawn to the cover of Divergent almost immediately! To me, the cover captures mystery, intrigue, fire, and adventure – All key components of this first book!
“Dark and Lovely” A book cover that is so creepalicious you just want to eat it up
I remember the first time I saw several of Anderson’s books lined up on the local library shelf. This one gave me instant shivers. It took me a while to actually read it, but it’s an impressive fictional account of the late 1700s and the fight against disease.
“Sugary Sweet” A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug
This one was hard for me. There was a book cover that I could picture in my head, but for the life of me, I couldn’t remember the title, or even the author! Yeesh. Fangirl is one of those books that I haven’t read yet, but I’ve heard many good things. This will be on my next TBR!
“The Simple Aesthetic” A book cover that stuns with the most minimalistic of design
I can’t really write a post about a book tag without mentioning The Great Gatsby. This cover blew me away.
“Cover Envy” A book cover you wish you had on your shelves, but don’t yet
The first time I saw this cover on a book blog (I can’t remember which one) – I fell in love. It pulled me in from the start. I didn’t even know what the book was about – I just knew that I wanted it. This cover is spellbinding. Now that I’ve heard amazing reviews about Caraval from several book bloggers, I definitely want to get my own copy!
“Traveling Abroad” A beautiful book cover featuring a country outside of your own
I’ve loved Paris and France for a long time. This cover showcases a classic novel, and a country that’s seen its fair share of triumph and turmoil.
“The Color Wheel” A cover that showcases one of your favorite colors
Purple has been one of my favorite colors, since elementary school. I love Sarah Dessen’s books, too.
“Switching Gears” A cover change you absolutely adore
While always attracted to Judy Blume’s books, I’m happy they’ve updated the cover for Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret. It’s more modern and fresh-looking. It’s a good way to grab the attention of readers today, since Blume’s books are still highly relevant and entertaining, years after being published.
“Oldie but Goodie” A favorite cover of your favorite classic
I was assigned to read Madame Bovary in high school. It was a challenging read, but it’s stuck with me all these years. I love this cover – The woman just has this intrigue about her in this pose.
“And the Winner is…” Which book cover mentioned above is your favorite?
Caraval wins, hands down. I’m going to look for this on Amazon this week!
I loved this tag!
As I get older, I find that I’m judging books more and more by their covers, but it’s hard to pick just one cover sometimes!
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
