5. List the rules
“No Ideas But in Things” A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell- I actually had a hard time coming up with a cover for this! I didn’t realize before how ambiguous a lot of covers are! Anyway, I think this cover perfectly captures the essence of Eleanor & Park’s love story.
“Dark and Lovely” A book cover that is so creepalicious you just want to eat it up
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake- A haunted house and a girl in a white dress dipped in blood has all the makings for a creepy cover! I think the title of this one helps with the creepalicious factor!
“Sugary Sweet” A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug
Miss You by Kate Eberlen- I had so many options for this one but I decided to go with one of my more recent reads. This cover is just so fun! I love all the colours and the drawings that reference the book! I also think it is so adorable that it looks like the authors name in written in pencil! I love little touches like that.
“The Simple Aesthetic” A book cover that stuns with the most minimalistic of design
Slaugtherhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut- This cover is simple but powerful. I know there are a lot of editions of this novel out there but this one is my favourite.
“Cover Envy” A book cover you wish you had on your shelves, but don’t yet
The Mothers by Brit Bennet- I don’t know what it is about this cover that appeals to me so much! I think it is all the colours and how it looks very abstract. I have also heard good things about this books so I need it on my shelves asap!
“Traveling Abroad” A beautiful book cover featuring a country outside of your own
All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr- This is one of my favourite books of all time. I also adore this cover! It is set during WWII in France and in Germany.
“The Color Wheel” A cover that showcases one of your favorite colors
The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney- This teal blue colour is definitely one of my favourites, especially during this time of the year. There is something about it that just screams summer to me! Also, gold- need I say more!
“Switching Gears” A cover change you absolutely adore
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins- This cover change was so necessary! The original cover was just too cheesy. I mean I know you should expect a book called Anna and the French Kiss to have some cheese factor but come on! The new covers are so much better!
“Oldie but Goodie” a favourite cover of your favourite classic
Cannery Row by John Steinbeck- Not only is this my favourite classic but it is my favourite book! My dad bought me this edition for Christmas and it is one of my most prized possessions!
“And the winner is…” which cover mentioned above is your favourite?
Cannery Row by John Steinbeck- I mean it is my favourite book! I have this edition displayed proudly on my shelf and I gush over it all the time!
