Dreamy Book Covers Tag

Thank you Tiana for tagging me for your own original tag! I’m sorry it took me so long to do! 

 The Rules: 

1. Thank the lovely person who tagged you, spread the love! 
2. Meantion me Tiana @ The Book Raven as the (insert adjective here) [awesome] creator 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 

The Tag:

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

Each of these books have a fantastic summary from the cover alone.

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

Am I the only one to have read the Death Note light novel spin off book? It’s considered totally canon by the writer…who even wanted the author of this to write more for DN. Anyway, it may be less creepy and more mysterious, but it fits the content somehow.

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

This is the only contemporary I’ve read in recent memory…I think.  But while it may flirt with dark topics, I found it a sweet read overall.

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

Love the book or hate it, there’s no denying that Looking For Alaska has a stunning cover. 

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

If we were going by book alone, I’d have chosen The Six of Crows. But cover wise…I’m interested in the book, but I really do think this cover is gorgeous. 

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

Even though this is blurry, I really want to go to England someday, so that’s why I chose this.

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

I have trouble finding purple covers, so I chose blue instead. And Jackaby‘s shade of blue is lovely!

“Switching Gears” A cover change you absolutely adore:

New – Old

While the font change bugs me, there is no doubt that everything else about the new TMI covers is amazing.

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

This cover matches True Grit‘s nature so well!

And the Winner is…” Which book cover meantioned above is your favorite?:

I was torn between this and Looking For Alaska, but the innovativeness (and the way it even gave me a bit of an Annarasumanara vibe) made The Night Circus my favorite cover on this tag.

 I tag:

James J. Cudney 





This tag was very creative and fun, I recommend it even if you weren’t tagged. And if you’ve already been tagged or done it already, sorry!

  1. Thank you so much for tagging me! I don’t believe I’ve done this tag yet, so I’m excited to do it!! Great answers! I love The Night Circus’s cover! Also the new Cassie Clare covers look a lot better than the old; I was originally drawn to the new covers when I was reading City of Bones. And I really like the shade of blue Jackaby uses, it’s one of my favorite covers. 😄

  2. I’ve wanted to pinpoint what Annarasumanara reminded me of for the longest time and you finally said it! I guess that was the main reason I found it so aesthetically pleasing, to be honest.
    Looking for Alaska is one of my favorite covers too (even though I didn’t care much for the book itself). It’s quite chilling and fits the tone of the story really well.
    Also, my favorite color is purple too! Though I’ve never seen any purple covers either… What a waste!
    Loved your post, Kate, and thank you so much for tagging me! 🙂 I’ll do it soon-ish… If I can!

    1. Oh wow, you read Annarasumanara? And the Night Circus? How was NC? I really want to read it!
      Looking for Alaska had a lot of potential, but I didn’t quite become invested in the characters, TBH. I liked the idea a lot, but the lack of character investment was a little off, as it was mainly character driven. But the cover matches the book so well, and adds a mysterious flare. And I want more purple covers!
      And no problem! I can’t wait to see what you do.

      1. I haven’t read either one yet unfortunately, but Annarasumanara instantly reminded me of the cover of Night Circus. I want to read it so badly too!
        Yeah, those were basically my issues as well. John Green’s characters are mostly all the same to me, and I can never connect with them. It’s like they’re part of a dream or a movie playing out before my eyes. It doesn’t feel real or relatable. Plus, they kind of annoyed me, too.
        Let’s see how many tags before I can get to this one! (Spoiler: too many!)

      2. You must read Annarasumanara! It’s one of the Webtoons I would call an absolute masterpiece.
        I liked The Fault in Our Stars (though not as much as on reread) but you’re right; all John Green’s books are like movies.
        Lol, take your time. It’s all good. I have a backlog of tags too.

      3. I refuse to read TFIOS. I don’t care much for the theme and would probably cry my eyes out! So yeah, that one’s a no.
        But I wanted to see what the fuss was about so I tried Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines. Wasn’t a fan of either, but didn’t dislike them either. They were just meh.
        I will read Annarasumanara, though, definitely! ^^

      4. I don’t blame you on that one, honestly… An Abundance of Katherines had potential, but sadly fell flat for me. I liked the story in Looking for Alaska, but it was mostly character driven, and I didn’t have a great liking for any of the characters. And OMG, Annarasumanara is a must read!

      5. Yup, I really liked the concept on AAOK! But then it just ended in the most uninspiring way… A complete waste.
        I guess I just don’t have much sympathy for the boring MCs whose main purpose in the story is to chase after these quirky love interests (coughmanicpixiedreamgirlscough) and find in them their passion for life. Ugh.
