Good morning everyone!
I just want to start off by saying that I’m so sorry I keep missing Friday posts. School is swamping me and by Friday, I’m usually struggling to even get out of bed.
With that said, I’m going to do my best to post more and miss fewer days.
Now, I would like to thank Grace at Serendipitous Reads for posting this tag. While she didn’t tag me or Thrice Read, I thought it looked cool and like something I’d enjoy.
1. Thank the lovely person who tagged you, spread the love!
2. Mention Tiana @ The Book Raven as the 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
“No Ideas But in Things”: A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it
Strange The Dreamer by Lainey Taylor.
It’s whimsical and soft and kind of makes me feel a little sleepy when I look at it, which is perfect for the subject matter.
“Sugary Sweet”: A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
While this novel is depressing and even the
cover is kind of depressing, when I see this cover I just want to hug it and exclaim my deep-seeded love for it.
“The Simple Aesthetic”: A book cover that stuns with the most minimalistic of design
I know The Merciless II: The Exorcism of Sofia Flores is very simple, but I’ve been obsessed with this gold-pentagrammed masterpiece for years.
Honestly, I actually bought the book a few years ago, not because I was super interested in the story (though I’m so ready for a solid novel about witches!), but because I was always obsessing over the cover.
“Cover Envy”: A book cover you wish you had on your shelves, but don’t yet
I don’t have City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab yet because I didn’t preorder it.
But trust me, I will have it soon!
I love this cover and that it’s super spooky and the use of white, black, and red in it. I don’t know if anyone is really noticing, but Schwab is really into putting red on her covers.
“Traveling Abroad”: A book cover featuring a country outside of your own
While I wasn’t a massive fan of With Malice by Eileen Cook, I did love the cover work for this novel.
The book is sorta set in Italy and sorta set in America. With that said, I just love that the cover looks like a photo was that recreated with watercolors.
“The Color Wheel”: A cover that showcases one of your favorite colors
While my favorite color is yellow, the colors in Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman are some of favorites.
Honestly, the coloring and cover was what pushed me to by the book in the first place.
Something about the blues used just feel very calming.
“Switching Gears” A cover change you absolutely adore
I don’t know if you guys know or remember this, but the Shatter Me series had an atrocious cover originally.
I rarely like cover changes, but I can honestly say this was for the better and is much more aesthetically pleasing.
“And the Winner is…” Which book cover mentioned above is your favorite?
Strange The Dreamer is my favorite cover. I don’t know what it is about it, but it just makes me a bit nostalgic.
I’m going to tag:
Confessions of a YA Reader because I’m obsessed with her blog.
