Hi guys and welcome to my third T5T! (three, aready?) this is a weekly meme hosted by Shanah over at BionicBookWorm the third topic for October was
TOP 5 BOOK COVERS
So, let’s get looking at some *in my opinion* beautiful covers. These are in no particular order because I suck at picking. To make this easier on myself, I’m picking 5 books that I’ve read this year, otherwise we’d be here forever.
THE LONELIEST GIRL IN THE UNIVERSE. This is adorable in all the right ways, the colours shooting out of the girl are metallic and look absolutely beautiful, the colours all mix perfectly and create such a colorful but not overdone image.
THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER. I am actually NOT a fan of people on the covers of books, but this one? I ADORE. The symbolism that you can see once you’ve actually read the book is amazing and honestly the colours are so beautiful and dark and really show the darker side to this novel.
THE MARTIAN. this is one of my all time favourite covers for it’s colours and simplicity. It manages to show how alone Mark is, and how RED, Mars is. Honestly this cover is so simplistically done but with the bright colours it is just perfect and I am in awe
DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE. This was a limited edition that was only made for the first two novels of this series and honestly they’re so eerily beautiful. This one is a photo of the bridge that is a major landmark in this novel and the eerie look that it gives the bridge, gives the idea of the world being abandoned which is semi aligned with the story.
finally, CRUEL BEAUTY this wasn’t my favourite book overall BUT it was the cover that drew me in, the rose unfurling to a staircase is so aesthetically pleasing and it actually portrays the story well. This is a beauty and the beast retelling and honestly I sort of got those vibes from the cover and I think the colours make it stand out even more.
Do you like any of these covers? if so, tell me your favourite below!
Until next time,
