Questions:

“No Ideas But in Things”
A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it

The cover of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is exactly how fangirls are in real life…

We have this amazing ability to completely forget about the world around us all while being utterly focused on the imaginary places and people we are head-over-heels fannish for. 😀

Fangirls FTW!


“Dark and Lovely”
A book cover that is so creepalicious you just want to eat it up

The Gardener be S.A. Bodeen has such an amazingly creepy cover that, years later, I still want to re-read it! I’ve got chills and they are multiplying.


“Sugary Sweet”
A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug

How could you NOT want to cuddle up with the two characters on the cover of Madeline Finn and the Library Dog by Lisa Papp?

He just looks so calm and fluffy and Madeline is absolutely comfortable with him! Ach, my heart! The feels!


“The Simple Aesthetic”
A book cover that stuns with the most minimalist of design

Yeah, I knew that Morte by Robert Repino was going to be perfect for the minimalist cover.

Honestly, the cover is a little deceiving in that it’s almost too simple for what the novel actually contains… which is an amazing story about an intelligent race of ants (yes, I said “ants”) looking to destroy mankind for good and the four-leggers who are trying to stop them.


“Cover Envy”
A book cover you wish you had on your shelves, but don’t yet

The cover for Dark Eden by Chris Beckett is so entrancing! I love the forest and the colors and what looks like snow and I really, truly cannot wait to see this on my bookshelves.


“Traveling Abroad”
A beautiful book cover featuring a country outside of your own

The Whale Rider by Witi Ihimaera is such a magical, heart-wrenching story about a young Maori girl who is trying to prove her worth to her family, to her friends, and to herself.

Kahu is such a great character and her story is one I believe everyone should read.


“The Color Wheel”
A cover that showcases one of your favorite colors

So, if you weren’t aware, I’ve consistently been sorted into Slytherin house since sorting quizzes became a thing… which is nice, because I love all things green.

Verdi by Janell Cannon is one of my favorite picture books both because the story is great AND that the art is amazing! From the cover to the last page, you will be absolutely entranced!


“Switching Gears”
A cover change you absolutely adore

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card so desperately needed an update and what better time than when the movie was set to be released? I enjoyed both the book and the movie, but I have to say that the movie cover is MUCH better than the original. 😛


“Oldie but Goodie”
A favorite cover of your favorite classic

Walter Farley’s The Black Stallion is probably my most favorite classic ever.

The story is one that my young, horse-loving heart couldn’t get enough of as a kid. Both the cover art and the illustrations within created in me a lifelong love of not only Arabian horses in particular, but of all horse breeds!


“And the Winner is…”
Which book cover mentioned above is your favorite?

For sheer creep-factor, The Gardener wins my favorite cover (of this post ;P)
