This week’s topic was a free choice so I decided to talk about some of my favourite covers. I’m sure I am not alone when I say that beautiful covers are a massive weakness for me. They always say don’t judge a book by its cover but I think we all do to some extent.
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken- I love everything about this cover. I love the typography, the colours and the image. I think it is really interesting that the city is in the bottle and then a ship is on the outside.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins- I think all the covers in this series are really pretty. I love that they use bright bold colours and have an image of the city in the background. Each book takes place in a different city and I like that this is represented on the cover.
Winter by Marissa Meyer– This is another series that has beautiful covers but I think Winter is my favourite. I love the pink apple and I also really like the font that has been used for the title.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey– Although I didn’t enjoy this book I really love the cover. I love the colours that have been used and I like the way that the sun is setting behind the trees.
The Selection by Kiera Cass– I love the covers in this series. The different dresses are so pretty and I love the way that they line up on the shelf.
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas- The covers in this series seem to be getting better and better. I love that on the front we see Celaena in her assassin gear and then on the back we see her in a beautiful dress. I think that these covers really draw people in and I also really like the white background that is used on the UK covers.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell– This is such a simple cover but I think that it is really pretty and cute which sums up the story. I love the mint green background and the little illustrations that have been used.
The Neverland Wars by Audrey Greathouse– I love the blue that has been used on this cover and I like how the swords are used in a subtle way. The font really helps to draw you in.
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton- This is such a gorgeous cover and I can’t wait to see what the other books in this series will look like. I love the gold and blue colours that have been used.
The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare– I am not usually a fan of people on the cover but I love this image of Magnus and I think it matches really well with the picture I have in my head of him. Again I really like the blues that have been used on this cover. I also really like the Infernal Devices covers but I didn’t want to list too many Cassandra Clare books as I thought it might get a bit repetitive.
