Hey, remember this weekly thing that I was doing and I only had the color white left to do? Yeah, I don’t know what happened! But, here it is! The last color for Beautiful Covers that I’m going to talk about. I love covers and seeing what publishing companies and their teams can come up with, and I definitely haven’t been disappointed.
Today’s color: white.
White is a beautiful color and it can really make other colors stand out against it. It can mean the difference between a sleek looking, well put together cover, and a hot mess.
1 . The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I got the special anniversary edition specifically because of this cover. I’ve never read the story, but I really want to because so many people love it, and as soon as I saw this cover I just knew that I NEEDED it. It’s really beautiful in real life and it has a really cool texture.
2. The One by Kiera Cass
These covers are all beautiful, but this one is definitely my favorite. I love how it looks like a wedding dress and how the dress bunches and has curls and stuff. It’s so lovely.
3. Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson
Awesome female power! This is a book about being able to see colors with the magic of breath (not what you breathe), and so I love how the cover alludes to that detail from the book. (Yes, I got the UK cover specifically because it’s way lovelier than the US version.)
I’ve loved this cover since I saw it: how there’s nothing up top but everything down below. There’s so much color and vibrancy and it hints to a lot of allergies people have and what the main character has. It’s really lovely.
5. When We Collided by Emery Lord
Okay, this is more of an off-white kind of color, but I just love this cover, okay? The splashes of color make it stand out more and the “handwritten” title looks playful and fun against the background. So pretty.

I can’t believe Beautiful Covers is coming to a close! For now, anyway. I’ll probably do more in the future for different categories, but I thought that this was a fun little thing to do and share some of my opinions on some beautiful covers out there.
What are some of your favorite white covers? Do they have any splashes of color on them or are they all white?
