Hey guys, so I wanted to do a new series where I talk about some of my favorite book covers and show some love to these beautiful books.
We all have our favorite covers and we hate it when a book gets remade into something a bit more lackluster, and so I wanted to go through the rainbow and share with you all some of my favorites from books I’ve read or will be reading soon.
My list will consist of colors that have the color of the day encompassing the majority of the cover; I’m thinking at least 75% of the cover OR it has to be a standout color, like a pop of color that draws your eyes in.
Today’s color: Blue
Blue is a very relaxing and calming color, and it’s a lot of peoples’ favorite color. It can mean the difference between a clear sky and an oncoming storm, or symbolize sadness and grief.
Here are my top five favorite blue covers:
1 . Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
I purposely picked up this copy at Barnes and Noble one day because of the colors. I had seen the hardcover version before, but I absolutely loved the colors in this one. The blue allows the red castle to really stand out, but the typography is simply gorgeous. Though I haven’t read it yet, I’m excited to, and the cover really helps with the excitement.
Though Celaena may encompass the majority of the cover as the focal point, the background that she’s against is simply stunning. The different shades of blue and white really help to show the intensity of the character on the cover and make it seem like she’s glowing. I love these colors so much.
This is one of my favorite covers of ever (and don’t be surprised when the rest of the trilogy makes an appearance). Not only is the typography clean and large, the models on the cover beautiful and totally encompassing the main characters in the book, but THAT BACKGROUND. It’s gorgeous! I love that this is a sci-fi novel and how that is really explained just by looking at the cover. The stars are beautiful and really showcase the characters.
4. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
I love all of the redesigned covers, for sure, and this is my favorite of the two bluer covers for the trilogy. I love the simple eye design, but how the artist really took it to a new level to show the freezing of the eyelashes, the clouds in the sky, and the bird in the iris. Everything about this cover is beautiful – even the typography. Simply stunning.
5. The Selection by Keira Cass
As I was looking at covers to choose from, I almost completely forgot about this series and its covers. They’re gorgeous! I’m pretty sure anyone who loves to wear dresses is envious that they weren’t able to wear this gown, because I know I’m one of them. I love how the dress is such a focal point because they are a big part of the series. Plus the pose of the model is nice.
And those are five of my favorite blue covers! I’m sure that there’s more to choose from, but these were the ones that stood out above the rest.
What are some of your favorite blue covers? Do you agree with my choices? Let me know some of your favorites and why you love them!
