It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah Bionic Book Worm and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
This week I’ll talk about my favorite covers of 2019!
King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo
I finally boarded the Leigh Bardugo fan ship. After binge-reading all of the Grishaverse books I can’t wait for more material from her. Although all the covers were beautifully designed, my favorite is King of Scars. It’s golden, it shimmers, it’s smooth, it’s almost hypnotizing.
I have a little confession to make: I have a new obsession. I am currently super into book subscription boxes. As, by now, I’ve accumulated quite a few of them, I also have some stunning new books to read. The boxes I ordered mostly contained special editions of the novels included (sometimes with sprayed edges), so that’s where I got all the following picks!
Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
I am currently reading this book and can’t help but to marvel at it every single time I pick it up. The cover is shimmering and I love the color combination. My copy came with sprayed edges in the same petrol color the background of the cover is and the edges glitter. Yes, you read correctly there is glitter.
The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen
Just look at the cover art. No more comment needed, right?
The copy I got doesn’t just come with this impressive image but also has some stunning artwork on the inside of the dust jacket. Love it!
Nocturna by Maya Motayne
The thing is, with book subscription boxes, they never tell you which book it is that you will be getting. That’s why I ended up with two editions of Nocturna from two different subscription companies.
That means I have one edition of the book that’s orange/red, the other one is blue with sprayed blue edges. Both of them are simply beautiful!
Wicked Fox by Kat Cho
While I’m usually not a fan of the color pink, on this cover it does have something enchanting. I like the composition, the artwork really draws you in! Also, my copy has sprayed edges in pink that look super dope!
