Chit Chat: What’s In a Cover?

My ever favorite topic – beautiful book covers.

Ever since Janel @ Keeper of Pages started teasing me on every possible platform about my love for pretty covers I decided that the only good way to retaliate is – TALK MORE BOOK COVERS. I thought long and hard (meaning I really didn’t) about what makes me love a book cover and here’s some stuff I came up with.

1. The Title Screaming at Me

I really enjoy covers where the book title is really prominent. For example:


2. Flowers Everywhere

Who doesn’t like flowers? Please don’t answer that. Just look at these:


3. Love a Good Theme

I love when a cover makes sense. When it tells a story and captures the book perfectly. Super into it. Like these:


4. Abstract

I also love when the books have some sort of a vague, abstract book cover. For example:


5. Vibrant Colors

I love books that really stand out and that mix really strong colors. Got to love them. Like these:


Bonus Category: This Cover of The Wrath and the Dawn

I mean what a blessing to the publishing industry. So much so that it deserves a category of its own:

And those are some things I love to see in book covers! Do you have any specific things you like on covers? Do you not care? *gasps in horror* Let me know!

  2. What a lovely post, I enjoyed it so much πŸ™‚ I’m definitely cover driven when it comes to book buying. It’s nice to see your categories like this. Happy reading!


  3. You are speaking to a cover junkie here! Colors are essential and fonts! I fell in love with Yana font that I spotted on Forest of a Thousand lanterns cover. Only after come the pictures πŸ˜‰

    1. Definitely. And it’s not like I would buy a paranormal or a historical novel just because it has a nice cover, because I never read those. If a book only midly interests me though, the cover might help push me into getting it 😊


  4. Ooh, yes, I’ve seen people hate titles taking up most of the covers, but I like it! I’m drawn to a nice font. πŸ˜‚ Also, for some reason, I’m very much attracted to flowers/nature and anything to do with fire on the cover, for some reason? I actually hated the new Wrath and the Dawn cover when I first saw it because I really liked the previous ones, but it’s one of those books that looks better in person! 😍

  5. I love simplistic covers. Usually a solid color with beautiful writing. That is what draws me into books. Like Wicked Charm and the Merciless to give examples. But I do have to admit, I am digging the covers in this post.
