I am super excited to do this tag today since I feel like I haven’t done a book covers tag in a long time haha. A slight disclaimer though: however much I love looking at book covers, I actually only own a small collection of physical books. Therefore, 86% of my answers to this tag (and yes that is an exact calculation) is based on my impression of the digital book covers!
Thank you Beth @ Reading Every Night for this tag! We’ve known each other for over a year now and Beth has always been very kind and sweet, and her blog has very awesome content, so do go and pay her a visit!!

No Ideas but in Things:
A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it
Because this book is about female Russian pilots who fought in the Second World War, I thought the cover reflects Among the Red Stars perfectly. Really, really loved the girl power in this book! (Check out my review here.)
A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug
Of course! How can To All the Boys not come to mind for this question? I loved the covers for each of the books in this series SO much. The story and the characters are just as cute and sweet. (Check out my series review here.)
The Simple Aesthetic:
A book cover that stuns with the most minimalistic of design
I LOVE minimalist designs and in particular I adore these covers for the Vicious duology by V.E. Schwab! Vicious is probably one of my favourite books by this writer, although I wasn’t as impressed by Vengeful which came a decade later. (Check out my reviews for Vicious and Vengeful.)
A book cover you wish you had on your shelves, but don’t yet
The cover of Girls of Paper and Fire was love at first sight for me! It is a book that I’ve read/listened to, although I don’t own a physical copy. (Check out my review here.)
I also really admire the cover of Descendant of the Crane, which is still on my TBR!
A book cover featuring a country outside of your own
Of the books that I’ve read that takes place in other countries, I realized that actually not many have a cover that features said countries hahahaha. For this question, I decided to go with Anna and the French Kiss. There are two versions of the cover and by a landslide, I like the first one (pink and red) so much more than the second. (Check out my review here.)
The Colour Wheel:
A cover that showcases one of your favourite colours
If you can’t tell already by the theme of this blog, I am a big fan of blue and red! So Emmy & Oliver will of course be my pick for this question! I love the simplicity of the design, so this was on my shortlist for “A Simple Aesthetic” as well. (Check out my review here.)
A cover change you absolutely adore
I was never too big of a fan of the original Harry Potter covers (please don’t hate me!!!!!! *shields self from thrown tomatoes*) BUT I really love the 10th anniversary edition which I own a copy of! (Check out my reflections on re-reading HP.)
And the Winner is…
Which book cover mentioned above is your favourite?
I’ll have to pick Descendant of the Crane. I love the intricate illustrations which remind me so much of the traditional Asian art style. The colour scheme is also beautiful. This book is still on my TBR but I definitely want to read it soon!
I won’t tag anyone this time around, but if you want to give this tag a try, go for it!! I would love to hear about your favourite book covers!!
