  1. These are gorgeous covers! I think the pastel and illustrations ones are my favourite but the others are just as delicious. I know I shouldn’t judge a book by the cover but these are just too yummy to pass up…. those designers know what they’re doing!

  2. This post is so gorgeous! You always have the best taste in covers.

    I’ll confess that most of the books I bought this year was just because of the cover. I can’t help myself lmao.

  3. Sky in the Deep has one of my favorite covers even though I didn’t like the book itself. That lighting! Anyway, long-haired girl with dramatic lighting (SitD and Girls of Paper and Fire) is a cover trend I support and probably the only time I’ve ever liked covers that only had a face on them.
    Also, The Hazel Wood is so pretty! I almost want to read it just because of that.

    1. Yes! So intense and dramatic! Definitely the best version of “face on a cover” I’ve seen. I love the cover for The Hazel Wood, but the book I’m more ambivalent about. It’s pretty good, but I wanted way more creepy fairytale vibes from it!

    1. Thank you! I feel the same way, we can’t help being drawn to beautiful things! But I sometimes wonder about all the books I’m missing out on cause their covers didn’t capture my attention… Probably good for my tbr, haha.
