Hey everyone! Finally, finally I’ve finished this tag, now that I’m done with school. I’ve been pushing off publishing it until now, so, sorry about that! Today, I’m going to do the Dreamy Book Cover Tag! I saw this post on Sofii: A Book. A Thought‘s page and thought it looked like so much fun. Thanks so much for tagging everyone!
Also, I want to thank the creator of the tag: Tiana @ The Book Raven !!!
1. Thank the lovely person who tagged you, spread the love!
2. Mention me Tiana @ The Book Raven as the amazing creator of this book tag!
3. Use the original tag image in your post. (However, feel free to add whatever other graphics your heart desires!)
4. At least tag 1 fellow blogger for this tag.
5. List the rules.
Let’s begin! (While I was looking for books, I was reminded by how many books I’ve read with such beautiful covers. See the Honorary Mentions below!)
“No Ideas But in Things” A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it.
The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart. I read this series a long time ago, and I think that these two covers (and the cover of the rest of the books!) are quirky and perfectly describe the book. The fonts are also so beautiful!
“Dark and Lovely” A book cover that is so creepalicious you just want to eat it up.
Heartless by Marissa Meyer- The main reason I bought this book was for the cover. It is absolutely gorgeous in person, and even more beautiful without the cover on. It also doesn’t hurt that I love the author and really enjoyed the book! I also have to mention the Three Dark Crowns series. The first book’s cover is above, but the whole series has creepy and magnificent covers. It also could fit under the first category, but I thought it was best here.
“Sugary Sweet” A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug.
The Selection by Kiera Cass- This was one of the first YA novels I had ever read. I’m not ashamed to say that I really enjoyed these books, and that the covers are so beautiful. The dresses show really smart marketing and designing, and they are definitely the first books my eyes go to. The second fluffy book is Carry On – every time I even think about think about this book I just feel so happy, and I have literally hugged the book several times before.
“The Simple Aesthetic” A book cover that stuns with the most minimalistic of design.
The new cover of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is one of the simplest yet most beautiful covers I’ve seen. I read this book quite a long time ago, but I remember it being very interesting and a bit strange. I read The City of Ember, by Jeanne DuPrau in 3rd grade, or something like that, and I still remember it today. It had such an intriguing idea, and I think more people should read it. (also, the fact that the cover is gorgeous helps).
“Cover Envy” A book cover you wish you had on your shelves, but don’t yet.
There are too many of these! The main three books I really wish I had are: The Careful Undressing of Love, Strange the Dreamer, and Caraval. Strange the Dreamer (see below) was one of the best books I read last year, and I recommend it to everyone. I thought the book was fantastic, but to be honest, I wanted it before I had even read it because of its cover. The Careful Undressing of Love was a good book, but my favorite thing about it was really the cover. (link to my review here) And finally, Caraval! I haven’t actually read this book, but its cover is just to die for.
“Traveling Abroad” A beautiful book cover featuring a country outside of your own.
I read All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr a couple years ago. The book itself was lovely, and the cover features France during WW2, if I’m correct. If you’re looking for a more serious historical fiction novel, read this one!
“The Color Wheel” A cover that showcases one of your favorite colors.
This was the most difficult one for me! I ended up choosing the Throne of Glass series, because each book features a different color, and I love how they look together. I also love these books, and cannot wait to see the cover of the last one! (link to my series review here)
Switching Gears” A cover change you absolutely adore
This choice was also quite difficult for me, and I have a couple of options. First, I love the change of covers for Anna and the French Kiss. It looks so much prettier and much more classy. In addition, the British covers for all of Brandon Sanderson’s novels are absolutely beautiful, and I love the recent house cover changes for the Philosopher’s Stone.
“Oldie but Goodie” A favorite cover of your favorite classic.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen! The books look so good as a set, and each individual cover is so elegant. (these covers in the image above aren’t the ones I own)
“And the Winner is…” Which book cover is your favorite?
Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor! The book is stunning both with the cover and without. I need to buy it! It also doesn’t hurt that the book itself is fantastic.
- Red Queen (ALL OF THEM)
- An Ember in the Ashes
- The Lunar Chronicles
- Ember (the rest of the books)
Thanks so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed looking at the pretty books. Let me know what your favorite book covers are in the comments!
