I was tagged for this wonderful tag by Tiana over @ The Book Raven, and it’s even more epic because it’s first ever original book tag! Trust me, for a first time, she created such a fun, cool tag, and I can’t wait to share it with you. Check out her post here, and the rest of her dreamy blog here! Heh, dreamy, see what I did there? Yeah? And it was lame? Oh, well, this is awkward. But seriously, check out her blog because it’s fantastic.
1. Thank the lovely person who tagged you, spread the love!
2. Mention me Tiana @ The Book Raven as the (insert adjective here) creater 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. Even if your like me sometimes and feel a bit lazy
5. List the rules
“No Ideas But in Things” A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it
Princess of Tyrone by Katie Hamstead. The glass globe that is exactly on this cover plays a decently large role in it, and this cover has a perfectly sci-fi, fairytale feeling for me. Therefore, it = perfection.
“Dark and Lovely” A book cover that is so creepalicious you just want to eat it up
I literally have no clue what’s going on in this cover, but Shutter does sound really interesting and creepy. While I can’t say I’m super in love with it or anything, it does have some sort of entrancing quality to it. XD
“Sugary Sweet” A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson. DO YOU SEE THE DOGGIES AND ICE CREAM? It’s magical. And the colors are super pleasing.
“The Simple Aesthetic” A book cover that stuns with the most minimalistic of design
This Is Our Story by Ashley Elston just really has the deer and some shadows, but I just find it so creepy and riveting.
“Cover Envy” A book cover you wish you had on your shelves, but don’t yet
DO YOU SEE THIS COVER FOR WILD BEAUTY? I’m in love with literally everything about it – the font, the little gold girl, THE FLOWERS, THE COLOR OF THE FLOWERS. Everything. I totally knew I was going to buy this for sure just for shelf candy, but it also has an epic sounding story inside with some great diversity and magic realism.
“Traveling Abroad” A beautiful book cover featuring a country outside of your own
Wellllllll, Luna from TLC is a country outside my own right. I just had to fit in a way to get TLC in here. 😉
“The Color Wheel” A cover that showcases one of your favorite colors
I do love a good purple, and the purple in Geekerella by Ashley Polston sure is purty. See what I did there again? Do I just need to stop? Yes? Okay. 😦
“Switching Gears” A cover change you absolutely adore
Okay, there hasn’t been a cover change that I really, really like quite yet. One of the ones that I don’t mind is The Rose & The Dagger by Renee Aldieh. I still really like the first one (and it’s the one on my shelf so I’m a bit more partial to it), but I do like the colors and graphics on the change.
“Oldie but Goodie” A favorite cover of your favorite classic
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier is one of my favorite classics ever – well, one of the few that I even actually enjoyed. I’m so not a classics girl XD But there is a special UK version that I want to add to my shelf so bad. It’s just so pretty! :O
“And the Winner is…” Which book cover mentioned above is your favorite?
It came down to Wild Beauty and Rebecca, but I’m going to have to say Wild Beauty is the winner. The flowers are just so insanely beautiful…although Rebecca has the perfect color combo. AH. Also, I may have a flower obsession I’m now noticing?
*In the most polite way of course! Feel free not to do it if you don’t do tags/not feeling it/etc.
Rendz @ Reading With Rendz / icebreaker694 / Zuky @ Book Bum / The Book Nerd Dragon / Birdie Bookworm / Everything Under the Sun / Olga’s Oddish Obsession / The Book Cover Girls (psstt…they do have an epic giveaway going on here too)/
What do you think? What are some of your favorite book covers? Do you agree with my final selection as favorite? Also, do you enjoy doing tags? I had a mind tally of those that like to do tags to tag them in the future, and my mind has gone super blank so help me refresh? XD
TODAY IS THE FINAL DAY FOR VOTING – and then I shall be quiet forever on it. XD
Inej made it to the final round of Book Madness – trust me, I did not see that coming, and I can’t think everyone that helped her get there enough. You’re seriously the best, and maybe say hello to her again one more time? And then you’ll never have to have these weird little messages again for me at the end…at least about Book Madness…for this year. You can vote here for the final round, and check out my original post here. Thanks so much again!
