Cover Love: Black, White, & Purple Book Covers

Cover Love: Black, White, & Purple Book Covers

When I was in high school, I was once on the phone with a friend, and he was trying to guess the color of my shirt. Purple used to be my least favorite color (I really don't know why, I've now realized the error of my ways and appreciate it for the beautiful color it is), so when he guessed it, I said, "Eww, I hate purple." He kept guessing and guessing, venturing into more specific and unusual...

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2021

I love pretty book covers! They can definitely entice me to read a book I probably wouldn't have been quite interested enough in otherwise. Or make me more excited for a book I already wanted to read. Or make me want a print copy, just so I can look at it whenever I want. So, as I think I've said before, this is a post I really look forward to each year. I included some runners-up, but I...

Bookish Tag Post: Christmas Book Covers Tag [Original]

I wanted to do something Christmassy and simple and fun today since Christmas is less than a week away. A few years back, I did a Halloween book covers tag, so I thought I'd do one for this holiday too. My tags are chill, so if you want to join, the only rule is to give me credit by linking back to this post! Some of the topics are difficult, so if you want to skip them or replace them or do your...

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Skeletons

In honor of spooky season, I decided to gather up some book covers with skeletons! If you regularly follow my blog, you may have seen a lot of these already, since I'm using a bunch of books I've read and a couple that I've used in other cover posts, like this Halloween Book Covers Tag, but there are a few new ones as well. There are lots of hand bones and skulls, but also a few full...

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2019

I haven't been able to put together book cover posts lately because of my headache problems, but nobody panic! I still managed to make this post to showcase some of my favorite covers from the books I read this year :-) Unfortunately I couldn't include ALL the covers I loved (there were so many!), and I couldn't make the collage, but I've still got some super gorgeous book covers here, and I...

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Flowers

Since I'm posting this on Easter, I wanted to do something slightly-but-not-overly Easter-y. This holiday makes me think of spring, which makes me think of flowers, so here we are, book covers featuring flowers! Honestly flowers are just so pretty on their own that I didn't have to try too hard to find pretty covers that featured them. These covers aren't the style that I usually end up with...
 
Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Faces

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Faces

I know a lot of people don't like book covers with faces, but sometimes they're done really well and are really beautiful or striking. I especially love illustrated ones because it gives me the chance to see the character exactly as they're meant to look and to connect with them before I even start the story, plus I'm a sucker for pretty artwork. Even photos can be great if it's not a photo I've...
