Hey all, Dani here.
So today I’m doing another book tag, and this one is all about book cover aesthetics. Anyway, I saw this over on Jenna’s blog Bookmark Your Thoughts. She didn’t tag me specifically, but I thought this was a fun tag, so I’m going to do it anyway. Jenna is one of my favorite book bloggers, so you should definitely go check out her blog.
- Thank the lovely person who tagged you, spread the love.
- Mention Tiana @ The Book Raven as the creator of this book tag.
- Use the original tag image in your post. (However, feel free to add whatever other graphics your heart desires.)
- At least tag 1 fellow blogger for this tag.
- List the rules.
All right, let’s jump into the tag questions.
No Ideas But In Things: a book that perfectly expresses the novel inside it
To me this book cover showcases the vastness of space, and they cover a lot of space within this story. It also possesses so much in character diversity, and I don’t know, maybe I look into things too much, but with the varying shades of color in the cover, it could technically be an indicator to just the myriad differences in race, religion, culture, politics, etc. No matter what though, I think this is a stunning cover, and I like showing it off. –for the record, this is the UK cover, because I think the US cover is not as attractive.
Dark and Lovely: a book cover that is so creepalicious you just want to eat it up
This has a simple creepiness to it. I like the black, white, and shades of gray. Honestly I feel like the cover just makes me want to know why this cute and innocent looking little girl is with this tall, dark, and somewhat creepy looking man-creature. The story within has hints of cuteness, hints of darkness, and more, and I definitely think it is worth a read.
Sugar Sweet: a cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug
I love the color choices, the hugeness of the book on the front, and the two cute little silhouettes standing on the spine. The cover just makes me think that there is going to be a cute romance and that books will play a major part. I adored this book when I read it, and it is one I will probably re-read in future. I think it is just as cute as the cover, but it also has moments of serious emotion, and I like that.
The Simple Aesthetic: a book cover that stuns with the most minimalistic of designs
I think this is pretty minimalistic. Title, tag line, a little line of blood, and a cityscape. Not much too it. But there is so much going on in this book…and I can’t wait for the world to be able to read it in April. I can’t wait to have this book on my shelf. I was granted a digital galley, but I really want a physical ARC, so I’m hoping I can get my hands on one in the near future. But I also definitely plan to have a finished hardcover on my shelves as well.
Cover Envy: a book cover you wish you had on your shelves but don’t yet
This book will be released in March. I already have the other two, and was lucky enough to read both of them early. I’m still hopeful that I’ll be granted access to this final book in the trilogy on NetGalley, but if not, then I’m only a month away from having this one in my collection.
Travelling Abroad: a beautiful book cover featuring a country outside of your own
It would have been so easy to sort-of cheat on this one. I read so many fantasy books, and a vast majority of them take place in fictional worlds. But I went with this one, which takes place in a Russia with magic. I still need to finish this duology, but I rather enjoyed my time reading the first one.
The Color Wheel: a cover that showcases one of your favorite colors
I’ve talked a lot about how much I love this book series, and how I think each of the covers has been absolutely stunning. And since I don’t exactly have a favorite color, but enjoy many, I figured a cover that features many colors would be appropriate for this category. All of the book covers in the Colorworld series are photos of bubbles, which I find to be really interesting.
Switching Gears: a cover change that you absolutely adore
I have nothing against the original covers for this trilogy, but I love the new cover changes. So I’m planning on switching out my current copies for these new ones at some point in the near future.
Oldie but Goodie: a favorite book cover of your favorite classic
I had to look at several hundred different cover options before I chose this one. Actually I had a bid of difficulty choosing my favorite classic. I read a lot of them back in my school days and such, but I think this is one I’ve re-read the most.
I mean, unless you want to count Harry Potter as a classic, in which case I’m probably going to say that my Ravenclaw 20th anniversary edition is my favorite cover.
And the winner is: which cover mentioned above is your favorite
Well, okay, if you think I’m going to pick something other than Colorworld, then I guess you haven’t been around here long. Though, I admit that Wicked Saints came in a pretty close second place.
And I suppose that means that it is time to tag people. Man, I’m always awful about this section of the tag. I feel like I either always tag the same people, or I do a blanket tag.
Seriously, if you think this tag sounds fun and you’d like to do it, then by all means, I TAG YOU! Tags are fun to add to the blogging schedule, and I think they help to either spread the word about books, or they help us get to know each other, both of which are great. But I also don’t want anyone to feel obligated to do this tag.
So Tag, You’re It. I’d love it if you did do the tag though. Let’s gush over book covers together.
