So, I've been doing a little more web-surfing, as always, and I found so many posts like this. And I was sure it'd as much fun to write as it was to read!
Before I start, I wanted to let you know I will not be writing anything about the inner content of a book, but only the cover. And I should also let you know that despite this post, you should never judge a book by its cover, so we are only going to be looking at a few beautiful book covers and NOT JUDGE the internal matter. And my cover reviews have nothing to do with the book itself, so don't judge me and enjoy the beauty of these covers. Now, in no particular order lets start.
Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince
This book cover, to me, is very eye catching because of the black background and the bright orange in contrast. The details on this are very immaculate. Right from Dumbledore's Elder Wand to his injured and burned-looking hand, everything is very well defined. Although the pensieve in the back makes no sense, we all have to admit it does add a nice touch to it. Overall, it's elegant (in some ways) and funky at the very same time.
The Fault In Our Stars
Where do I even start? The electric blue background coupled with the dull blue words on top is very soothing to look at. The black and white clouds along with the bright yellow circle in between, gives this a much more animated type of a look. And I don't know why but the font on the book makes it look much more attractive to me. As for the blackboard effect on the black cloud, I have no idea what's it got to do with the book, but it looks really good nevertheless.
Princess Diaries: The Crowning Glory
The simplicity and quirkiness in this cover is what makes it really striking. One thing that I am sure of is that many of you haven't read the book but if you have, you'll know that the image of Mia on the cover represents her personality really well. There are 9 more beautiful book covers of this series but the reason I chose this one is that, I really like the background colour and the way the shining white crown looks. Also Mia's face is the best in this one.
Looking For Alaska
Another John Green. I love the simplicity yet the complexity of this book cover. The jet black background along with the beautiful daisy losing one of its petals, The greenish-blue title in a messy font and the author name written in the simplest form possible. You can already tell I love black backgrounds from the Half Blood Prince part, but the elegance of this cover overpowers any. (notice how the paragraph underneath the title has a blackboard effect in this one too ;p)
Workhouse: A Victorian Girl's Diary 1871
As for this one, I love how it has a vintage yet modern look to it.
The background makes it look like it is a picture clicked in recent times, but the girl, Edith Lorrimer, is wearing the vintagest clothes possible (not sure whether 'vintagest' is a word or not, but what does it matter?) I am not sure whether or not I like the maroon (or brown?) author's name, but the the vibes from this cover overall are great.
Okay, now before coming at me, hear me out, I know this post is really short but that is because it is hard to describe book covers. I try to make it look longer but then it just ends up looking like I'm dawdling. But if you still like it, please let me know so that I can write a part two.
New post will be out soon. And it will be longer. It's a goodbye till then! (Actually it is not, you can reach out to me whenever you want, I'll be more than happy to talk)
