It’s Tuesday again, but today’s theme is a Freebie and because I am very fond of beautiful covers and it’s a very valid reason for me to actually buy books without researching them first, here are some books I read the past 1 1 1/2 years which had great covers!
#1 A Question of Holmes by Brittany Cavallaro
Nobody can deny that the cover of A Question of Holmes wasn’t the most beautiful thing ever. I loved every little picture, the writing and the color is even prettier when you’re holding the book in your hands.
#2 Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
Even though I am not able to call Truly Devious one of my favorite books (the ending really annoyed me), this epic, intense blue is really gorgeous. If the mystery was half as intriguing as the cover, I would praise this book until the end of my days.
#3 Geekerella by Ashley Poston
I did not enjoy this book, let’s make this clear. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not blessed with a beyond beautiful cover. If I remember correctly, the cover was the reason I bought this book in the first place. Probably shouldn’t do that anymore.
#4 The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
I am currently reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, and even though it definetely won’t be my favorite Hercule Poirot mystery so far, the cover is intense. My dad usually orders the paper bag editions so that I can collect them all, but this one was only available in this beautiful hard cover edition, so that’s that!
#5 The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Let’s not forget that John Green not only gave us a tragic yet incredible story to gush about, but also a brilliant cover. To be honest, The Fault in Our Stars was a random pick, because I adore all of his covers. Turtles all the way down and Paper Towns are amazing as well!
#6 The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall
Besides The Penderwicks being my favorite series ever and it playing a huge role in my earlier days, this series has the most wonderful covers in the world. The colors, the children and Hound playing in the garden – it’s peaceful only to look at the cover instead of reading the actual book!
#7 99 Days by Katie Cotugno
This cover is just too cute to watch. I loved 99 Days because the story was great, but because of the cover, I was able to love it even more…
#8 Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Actually, the cover of Caraval deserves to be number one. Not only is it astonishing simply because it’s dangerously beautiful, but also because it fits the story and atmosphere more than perfectly (that’s not possible, I know…).
#9 If We Were Villains by ML Rio
Because it’s not what most people would consider a beautiful cover (come on, it has a dead little bird!), it’s only number 9. But it’s a beautiful cover in its own way as it perfectly embodies the story of If We Were Villains and has a kind of peaceful atmosphere I can’t describe…
#10 Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
For all of you wondering right now: it’s number ten because I haven’t actually read this book, but OBVIOUSLY had to include it on my list! It’s —- just take a look and you’ll understand!
That’s it for today’s theme! I hope your eyes enjoyed my list of beautiful covers – anyways, enjoy your day!
