Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes. This week’s topic is top 5 book covers.
The Broken Earth Trilogy by N. K. Jemisin
I love these covers, they look so… stony, which goes so well with the content of the book. And they look so pretty, but at the same time kind of neglected. Like stonework in old houses. I love the aesthetic of this series.
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
It’s so wintry and fairy-taley, I love it. It goes perfectly with the story and you know looking at this book that it’s going to be one of those epic, fireplace fairy-tales. Ugh, love it so much!
The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
Another beautiful fairy-tale cover. Not much else to be said really.
Illuminae Series by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Specifically the hardcovers of this series are just so cool. If you’re ever going to splurge on hardcover editions, this series is worth it! (not my image, got it from here)
The Monsters of Verity Series by V. E. Schwab
Don’t you just love the aesthetic of these? Black and white, with just a splash of colour. And if you look at the spines side by side, the black splash continues from one to the other. It’s so cool.
