This is a very late #sundaysoapbox post, but here are two covers I adore. Unfortunately the photos don't do them justice but they are so pretty, I sometimes take them off the shelf just to look at them 😍
Thanks for tagging me Sherri @Eggs 💕

#sundaysoapbox lol is it too late? These are my favorite covers right now. I think they are beautiful. Obviously, I love colors! I don‘t judge a book by its cover, but I think they can draw people in. If I saw these in a book store, I‘d pick up the book! Its also lovely to have a book that also feels like a work of art. And they look beautiful on your bookshelves! 😍

peanutnine Gorgeous colors 😍 12mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks It‘s never too late!! Love these covers! 💜 12mo

#sundaysoapbox @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks cover lust

I love the stark white and designs on the Verso Books Radical Thinkers series. Plus, look at these covers for the art deco and Chicago speakeasy mysteries, and steampunk adventure!

I do not usually decide to pick up based on cover alone, though.


Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks These are pretty 🤍📚 12mo

I'm a day late but didn't want to miss out on the fun! 😁 It would take me FOREVER to try and put together all my fave covers so here are a few recent favorites! I've especially been in love with the redesigned Lunar Chronicles covers and the redesigned ACOTAR covers. Apparently my aesthetic is bright, colorful, and preferably containing dragons! 😂📚🐉

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks These are awesome!! 12mo
rachelsbrittain Some really good covers! 12mo

RaeLovesToRead Also I've not heard of Midnight Water City but it looks like my beloved Rapture from Bioshock games ❤ 12mo
Branwen @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @rachelsbrittain I love all the colors! 😍 12mo
Branwen @RaeLovesToRead The Priory of the Orange Tree is hands down one of my favorite fantasy books of all time! So much dragon awesomeness and girl power moments! 🐉 12mo
Branwen @RaeLovesToRead I've never played Bioshock! 😲 I have to admit while reading this (it's a futuristic sci-fi police murder mystery) I kept closing the book yo stare at the cover! 🤣😂 I absolutely love it! 12mo

I guess I have an eclectic taste in book covers. I‘m drawn to covers like these, but they‘re all different. 🤷‍♀️ A cover will certainly draw me in, but it‘s not the deciding factor for me when choosing a book. I‘ve read books I did not like at all with great covers, and books I‘ve loved with terrible covers. #dontjudgeabookbyitscover #sundaysoapbox @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Great covers and books!! 12mo

I am definitely drawn to books based on their covers. Here are just a few examples...

I haven't yet read Stay up with me, Daughter of the Moon Goddess or A is for Arsenic but they are tantalising.

Things I am drawn to:
- Gold lettering & designs
- Lit up windows in the dark
- Deco style
- Steampunk
- Beautiful simplicity
- Lamplight / lanterns

tokorowilliamwallace Can't fault you for the art deco. 12mo
RaeLovesToRead @tokorowilliamwallace I love the Deco aesthetic 😊 12mo
Branwen YES to that whole list! Daughter of the Moon Goddess is 👌❤❤❤❤ 12mo

RaeLovesToRead @Branwen I popped into Meadowhall Waterstones today and asked if they had any sprayed ones... they said they were put out first so they're all gone 😔 If I don't manage to squirrel one out in the next few days, I'll send you the non-sprayed one (which is still absolutely beautiful - debatably just as lovely as the sprayed one, in fact... it's a close call!) 😁💕 12mo
Branwen @RaeLovesToRead YAY! Oh I am so excited! Thank you SO VERY MUCH! I am honestly just as excited now for the non sprayed pages edition because that cover is just...absolutely breathtaking and I am so in love with it! 😍 I'm BEYOND excited to get it and I can't thank you enough, my friend! 💕💕💕 12mo
Branwen @RaeLovesToRead In fact...I'd say to just give up the quest for the painted edge edition because my heart is already in love with the non sprayed one! 😍😍😍 I LOVE IT AND AM SO SO GRATEFUL TO YOU! 12mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks These are beautiful ❤️📚 12mo
RaeLovesToRead @Branwen Oki doki.. I will send you the non-sprayed one (honestly, when it arrived I genuinely thought it was just as nice)... if I happen to come across the limited edition one, I'll grab you a copy, but I'll get the other one in the post tomorrow! 😊 12mo
Branwen @RaeLovesToRead EEEEEEEEEE! THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH! 💕💕💕💕💕 You really are a book fairy! 😍❤📖 12mo
RaeLovesToRead @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Just a few of my faves! 😊😊😁 12mo

These were a few of the first covers that came to mind when I thought of favorites. I'm *definitely* drawn to books based on cover. I first picked up Nina Lacour's We Are Okay because of the cover.

#SundaySoapbox @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I bought Mexican Gothic because I loved the cover! 💜 12mo
Tera66 That Mexican Gothic cover is so gorgeous, I wish it had merch. I want it on a cup, a blanket, a t-shirt 12mo
rachelsbrittain @Tera66 if only! 12mo

Oh my, which covers should I choose? There‘s the Seasons Editions of classics, the Bloomsbury Modern Classics, the special edition Pratchetts or SOIAF special editions, the Harry Potter books, the Penguin Galaxy series or the Daughter Of Smoke & Bone series, I could go on. And on. Yes I know, I‘m a total cover whore! I‘m totally drawn to a beautiful cover. But if a book is good, I‘ll read it no matter what it looks like though!

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I love that! “Cover whore!” So am I!! 12mo
