5. List the rules
So here are my choices.
“No Ideas But In Things” A cover that perfectly expresses the Novel.
“Maybe Someday” by Colleen Hoover is one of my absolute favorite New Adult Romance books and it is one of my favorite covers, too. I think it sums up the story fairly well. It shows the music that brings two people together and it show the two relationships that are the center of the book.
“Dark and Lovely” A book cover this is so creepalicious you just want to eat it up.
You guys are probably going to think I am such a weirdo but the cover of “Coldest Girl in Coldtown” by Holly Black creeps me right out. I know that hand belongs to a dead person. My brain is not okay with that…at all. I am not a fan of dead things. REAL or FAKE. Dead things are not my thing.
“Sugary Sweet” A book cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug.
Leila Meacham. I met her randomly on a airplane from Texas to South Carolina. SHe was sitting right next me. She was on her way to a book signing event for her then new book Titan. I was on my way home from Colorado visiting family for my sister’s graduation. I was reading my kindle and she kindly tapped me on the shoulder and asked if I was a big eReader and if I could help her decide which one she should get. I know, Royalty asking a commoner advise! I was shocked too. She made my day.
Anywho, her first three books, The Roses Trilogy, all have these beautiful floral covers. Each book is titled a flower and the flower is featured on the cover. It’s gorgeous having all three of these books laid out. These books remind of a garden. Something I can’t grow if my life depended on it. But I love the smell and look of flowers.
“The Simple Aesthetic” A stunning cover with minimalist design.
Do not get me started on this book. We will be here all day! Brendan Reichs is an awesome person. If you ever have the chance to meet him, you will understand immediately. “Nemesis” is his first solo book. He co-wrote the Virus series with his mom, Kathy Reichs, the one who created Bones, the hit TV show based on her books following Dr. Temperance Brennan.
Sorry….getting side tracked again…..Nemesis is freaking awesome, but I love the cover. It goes perfectly with the story and it is so simple. Bullet holes and two colors. Really can’t get much simpler than that. Well, I guess you could…but still. It’s pretty minimalist.
“Cover Envy” A cover you wish you had on your shelves, but don’t…yet.
I can’t wait to get my hands on “Ash and Quill.” This is such an underrated series. But look at this cover! It is gorgeous. books one and two are just as gorgeous but this one takes the cake. I just want it so bad! This book will be released in July, I believe. Please correct me if I’m wrong!
“Traveling Abroad” A cover featuring a country outside your own.
“Wolf by Wofl” takes place in Germany. Follows a skin shifter through Germany. The story is based on if the axis powers of the Thrird Reich and Imperial Japan rule. Super erie but Ryan Graudin did a wonderful job. She always does. Book two is Blood for Blood. Amazing books. Definitely pick them up.
“The Color Wheel” A cover that showcases your favorite color.
TA-DA!!!!!! My three favorite colors in one cover! Pink, black and yellow. I can do without white but you can’t get away from that color. I love Jojo Moyes covers. They area all so vibrant and feminine. I guess this cover could have been used for the minimalist cover too! Moyes has six of seven books that are all a different color from the color wheel and they look so good standing next to each other on a book shelf!
“Switching Gears” A cover change you absolutely adore.
Do you like my photo shopping skills?? Ha-ha this took me 45 minutes to figure out how to do on my phone. The black cover on the left is the hardcover version of “The Walled City” and the right gray version is the paperback. The paperback is the one I own (favorite book ever, no joking) and I love this cover change. I think it showcases the story much better than the all black cover. Don’t get me wrong, I love the all black cover too, I just think they did better on the paperback. I mean, “knife” is in the tag line. Shouldn’t that have been in the cover somewhere from the start??
“Oldie but Goodie” A favorite cover of your favorite classic.
“The Princess Bride” is one of my favorite stories. I have loved this story since I saw the movie with my mom when I was twelve. I had no idea it was a book then. I fell even more in love when I read the book. Amazing. If you love the movie, I would suggest reading the book. So much better I think. This particular version of the story is the 30th anniversary edition and it is hefty. It probably weighs ten pounds! The publishers did not limit the budge for this one. The paper is think and glossy so the illustrations just pop out at you.
“And the Winner is…..” Which cover from above is your favorite.
I’m supposed to pick a favorite cover from this? I love them all….how do I pick a favorite kid? I can’t pick just one…..okay it’s “The Princess Bride.” There was actually no thinking involved. I just wanted to keep you guys waiting.
Thanks for reading!
Live Long and Prosper!
