I’m here with another tag and I’m ridiculously excited about this one!!
This fun tag was originally created by Tiana @ The Book Raven and the wonderful Ashley @ Book Tales was kind enough to tag me in this. Thank you, Ashley❤️ You guys should check out her blog if you get the chance. I always enjoy reading her posts and she takes the most stunning pictures of books.
Ahh like I said, I’m way too excited about this tag though. I’m a little (read: extremely) in love with book covers, so answering these questions is going to be great. Okay, here we go:
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
They Both Die at The End by Adam Silvera
Oops, sorry to start this post off with one of the saddest books on the planet, but I think this cover is pretty accurate. Rufus and Mateo spend this book hanging out around New York City but also… the scythe in the shadow. I never even noticed that until someone pointed it out and now I can’t unsee it.
“Sugary Sweet” A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug
A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall
I have to admit that the only reason I picked up this book was because of the cover. It’s ridiculously cute and fun. But… I didn’t actually like the book. I should probably learn to not to judge a book by it’s cover at this point, except I’m still guilty of doing it anyway.
“The Simple Aesthetic” A book cover that stuns with the most minimalistic of design
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
Oh I love this one. It’s simplistic and cute and the pastel theme makes me feel all happy inside. Whenever I’m at the bookstore, this cover catches my eye and I think wow I should get that book it’s so pretty but then I’m like Brianna, you literally already own it.
“Cover Envy” A book cover you wish you had on your shelves, but don’t yet
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
This has to be one of the most gorgeous covers I’ve ever seen, to be honest. I’m kind of in love with the colors. And the typography. And the whole thing. I do want to read this eventually, so I hope to get this book soon so I can stare at it at home instead of the store.
“Traveling Abroad” A book cover featuring a country outside of your own
Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
This book is adorable and it makes me want to visit Paris so badly. Also I actually struggled to find a cover for this question. Does anyone else feel like we need more YA books that are not set in the United States? I always get way too excited when a book doesn’t take place in this country because I want to experience other places and cultures. Any recommendations are appreciated.
“The Color Wheel” A cover that showcases one of your favorite colors
Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout
This is an intensely purple cover, but I love it because it’s one of my favorite colors. I really think all of the covers in the Covenant series are beautiful and go together so well. And also, this is a great series that never did get the hype it deserved.
“Switching Gears” A cover change you absolutely adore
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
I’ll never forget finding Shatter Me for the first time in my school library years ago. It was the cover on the left so I’m surprised I even picked it up in the first place. I mean, I’m glad I did, but I’m even more glad that they changed the cover to the one with the eye. I personally thought the original cover was quite unappealing.
“And the Winner is…” Which book cover mentioned above is your favorite?
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
I have to go with the only book I don’t own and haven’t read. It’s just so well designed and I can’t get over how beautiful it is.
Thank you again to Ashley for tagging me! This was really a lot of fun. I’m going to nominate these lovely people next:
I’d love to see your answers but no pressure to do this whatsoever! And anyone else who wants to do this tag, you’re more than welcome to. 🙂
Thanks for reading, you guys❤️
