I would love to start consistently doing a Top 5 Friday Blog! We will see how this resolution goes 🙂
For this Top 5 Friday I want to feature my current favorite book covers, and because I wanted you to be able to see the covers really well I took screenshots of the covers from goodreads.com rather than taking them myself. With that, let’s dive in and start admiring:
Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
This novel is gorgeous, one of my favorites, and I don’t even own it yet. There is going to be a slight trend with these books, in that I haven’t read a majority of them, even though I hear really good things. This cover is just beautiful and distracts me from the idea of dying from dysentery just enough to really want to start some adventure in the Wild West. The contrast of the orange/yellow with the black and white is perfect and does a great job of not overpowering with all the other things that are going on in this picture.
The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
Although this is another one that is on my TBR, I think it accurately portrays the historical fiction and magical feel this novel gives off. There are some editions that I have seen that has blue running along the page edges and I wish I had that copy with my whole soul, but in the end cost-efficiency won the day, and my paperback copy is still very lovely. 🙂
Made You Up by Francesca Zappia
This cover makes me wish I was some kind of watercolor genius and could make messy art look intentional and perfect, but I will just have to settle for using this as my art centerpiece. I love this cover and it also portrays the confusion and chaos the protagonist suffering from schizophrenia feels throughout this story.
Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
My photo does not do this book justice. The deep green of this cover is entrancing and something about it makes me want to keep looking at it forever.
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
My final favorite cover is simple and whimsical. It does a great job of conveying the attitude of the story, which is also amazing. I love how the font for the title fits the cover and is made a real centerpiece in the entire cover.
What are some of your favorite book covers?
