Thanks to Tiana from The Book Raven for creating this tag, and thank you Melody, for tagging me!
“A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it”
I went literal with this one. These are two absolute favorite books from my childhood. I read Bud, Not Buddy when I was about 8-10 years old, and I read The Cay when I was 12. Both still have a huge impact on me. I need to revisit them again.
“A book cover that is so creepalicious you just want to eat it up”
Lololololol, I’m not interested in this at all, but it meets all the requirements for this category so……….. Here we are.
“A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug”
All of the Animal Crossing all of the time, please. I love this book.
“A book cover that stuns with the most minimalistic of design”
Both of these books are amazing and their covers are perfect. One is a painting cover for a collection of poems of living in the countryside. The other is a man, alone, on Mars. Seriously, check these out if you haven’t.
“A book cover you wish you had on your shelves, but don’t yet”
Haven’t read these yet, but I love the covers so much.
“A beautiful book cover featuring a country outside of your own”
I actually did not like this book. Magical realism is an amazing tool in literature, but this didn’t do it for me. Buuuuut, I can say I read it, and it takes place in Mexico.
“A cover that showcases one of your favorite colors”
Haven’t gotten to read this yet, but it’s great – A+ art and it’s blue!
“A cover change you absolutely adore”
This is one of my favorite series! All of the covers are wonderful, too, but this flip to character focus is both symbolic of the shift in plot and progression and story, as well as a change in aesthetic. Look at Redd. Killing it on that cover!
“A favorite cover of your favorite classic”
So, as much as I love the graphically beautiful, my absolute favorite type of covers are the takes on vintage/embossed/leather-bound books. Honestly, if I had all the room and all the money, I would buy every single favorite classic in their original, leather and embossed printing for $500 each and fill the shelves. Then I’d feel the gaps with modern classic reprinted as throwbacks to vintage bindings. Give me some gold or silver on the spine and I’m swooning.
“Which book cover mentioned above is your favorite?”
With everything I’ve said, this comic/graphic novel cover is my favorite art style in animation. And the pops of color really catch your eye. So for the sake of not just grabbing one of the classics above, I have to give it to this one. I have heard pretty good things about this series, and I can’t wait to eventually read it.
