Lately I’ve noticed a lot of beautiful book covers out there that no one really comments on.
I totally judge a book by it’s cover 😂
Oh yes – I remembered to make an image! Go me! Do… well, what ever you want with it – and if you’re sharing it please credit to Rhiana @ marshmallow harmonies. Righty-o, let’s get into it!
But before I do, I would like to point out that this is NOT a book recommendation post. I am only giving my opinions on their cover – NOTHING ELSE. (with the exception of Words in Deep Blue and Legend – both amazing books 😃). Please do not assume that because it is on here I liked it. Ok, let’s gooooooo!
Words in Deep Blue:
This is quite possibly my favourite book at the moment, and the cover is absolutely gorgeous. If I ever write and publish a book, I want it to be at least half as good as that. And the font OH THE BEAUTIFUL FONT! (I’m a self described font junkie – couldn’t you tell?!) If anybody knows the name of it please hand over the goods. You’ll receive complimentary marshmallows.
36 Questions that Changed my Mind about You:
The little circles with little words ABOUT the book (quirks that you’ll only get if you read it) is actually such a unique idea that I, at least haven’t ever seen before, and don’t ask me how, but it relates to the book so well. I can totally picture both Hildy and Paul liking it.
Quite possibly one of the BEST BOOKS EVER WRITTEN (thank you Marie Lu (oh that rhymed! *does quiet cheer*)), and the cover art is astonishingly breathtaking. Especially the rose on Champion (the final book) oh my sugar cookies it is heart breaking. Read it. Please. For my sanity 😂
The Secret Science of Magic:
Haven’t read this one in a while (a whole lot of these I just plucked from my (extensive) bookshelves) but the hourglass that looks like a playing card is actually so crucial and relatable to the storyline. It’s ok – the banners are meh and the font *shudders*. The colour combos are aesthetically pleasing, and I do love that middle section (with the two faces in circles and hourglass).
The School for Good and Evil:
This– oh, I love this. The realistic yet obviously drawn characters are stunning. The castles Sophie and Agatha look onto are beautifully represented too! And the school crest with the swans, oh! *heart shatters into a million pieces (figuratively)*
I have three words.
Yes. Yes. Yes!
Counting by 7s:
The red fish is really such an accurate showing of Willow. It portrays her P E R F E C T L Y. And the fonts are well matched to the book – even if they aren’t that ‘haute couture’ (instead of fashion, think fonts 😉)
The Harper Effect:
Okay, first of all, THAT FONT IS DIVINE! I w i s h I could do that. The tiny tennis racquets are also so cute! Another thing is that everything looks hand drawn, which for some mysterious reason appeals to me 🤷♀️
The silhouettes are AMAZING. Just look at them. Batty with her wings, and Hounds little tail – oh, it’s simply exquisite.
I actually just looked up ‘synonyms for beautiful’ because I’m running out here! Thankfully we’re at the end…
So, here it
is was. Did you like it? Have you read any of the books above? Do you agree/disagree with me? Did you enjoy them?
Oh, and I have one more thing to say. I have been getting
one plus a lot in my brain from me quite a few questions along the lines of: what is happening with your blog? are you still posting? will you be continuing blogging?
Yes. As I said in my 6 monthsary (and that was my 57th post, so I think I’ve earned a tiny break) I AM NOT QUITTING. At least, I hope so.
What happened was I had a little bit of a, well, you could call it a burnout – where I had no ideas whatsoever. You’ll be pleased to know that time has passed *winks with joy* I am now fully recharged, and back bolder and crazier than ever! But I am changing my schedule a bit.
3 days was way too much posting – that’s how I got to around 10 posts a month – and since I stopped that, I’ve been trying to find a schedule that works. And now I think I’ve got it. Every Saturday morning (because that’s when I lie in) and SOME WEDNESDAYS. I’m going to aim for 5-7 posts a month – however that works out.
Thank you for sticking around and reading my extra long explanation of why I haven’t been posting lately! You guys are the best ever!
Oh, and for the first time in a games I haven’t used the scheduling tool! Part of this was pre-written – I’ve been working on it over the past few days, but I’m hitting publish now. As in, now. Thanks for reading xox
