Prettiest Covers On My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday (21)

Hello my fellow book lovers!

I could honestly do nothing but posts about book covers, I love book covers! So today I’m going to share with you guys the prettiest covers of books I still have on my TBR! I do own physical copies of most of these books with the exception of two, so it’s worse because their pretty covers stare at me accusingly wondering why I haven’t read them yet….

Anywho! There are also a TON of beautiful covers for books I’ve read, because I’m more likely to read the book sooner if the cover is pretty and shiny. Why? I suspect I may be part Niffler…..

But I will be doing up another post in the future mentioning my favorite pretty covers for books I’ve read! Also probably another post about pretty covers on my TBR as well because there definitely are a ton more!

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

I’m not 100% sure if I’ll truly enjoy this book or not since it sort of has mixed reviews even though it’s such a hyped book! Although I have to say I’m willing to risk it for that gorgeously, dark looking cover!

Dreamstrider by Lindsay Smith

I remember seeing this before it was released in 2015 and HAD to have it because it’s got “Inception” vibes and this beautiful cover! Of course I still haven’t read it though because I’m a terrible person……But anyways it’s about espionage inside of dreams so it sounds awesome!

Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I love how the black contrasts the orange and purple and makes them pop so much more, plus that peacock is so pretty! I also really like how there are throwing stars mixed in with the flowers it just makes it a little bit more badass.

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

I pretty much love ALL of Rosamund Hodge’s covers because they’re always this gorgeous! I think the way the stairs wind into the rose petals is really unique and the font is also really pretty as well. I didn’t really enjoy reading “Crimson Bound” her other book but I’m hoping maybe I’ll like this one better.

After The Woods by Kim Savage

A huge part of why I ended up buying this book was because of the cover, I mean it’s just so beautiful and I love all the shades of green. It’s a mystery thriller and the premise sounds a lot darker than the cover would make you think!

Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto

Probably one of my favorite covers ever! I really love birch trees so that’s probably a big part of it but I also love the way the cover looks like it’s burning away. Very unique and very pretty! I have heard this book is quite the blend of genres too with some fantasy, paranormal creatures, western, and steampunk!

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

I really love the starry smoke (if that even makes sense?) that’s on here as well as the gorgeous orange sunset! I’ve also heard that the writing is very beautiful as well so really I think I could say judge this book by its cover.

Strange The Dreamer by Laini TaylorΒ

This is the UK cover even though the US one is pretty as well, I really love the blue and the sort of constellation looking patterns on it as well. Plus the back has some pretty galaxy patterns! I’m not a big fan of moths at all but the cover is so pretty that I can easily look past it.

Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios

It probably might sound a little weird to say that I find the dead flowers pretty? I think it’s really neat looking with them popping out of the frame and I think it fits the title really well since it’s all about a bad romance, hence the dead flowers.

Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde

I love, love, love the pink hair on this cover! I don’t know why but something about pink hair to me is just gorgeous and awesome. I also like how it weaves through the font too it just adds a little more to the cover. I’m currently reading and loving this book too by the way!

      Same! Also that’s one of the reasons I wanted to include “Dream Strider” is because it’s really lesser known but has a beautiful cover so I’m glad you loved it as well! πŸ™‚

    I love Flame in the Mist, The Star Touched Queen and Strange the Dreamer too. In terms of the latter, I actually prefer the UK edition with the blue and gold colouring. The yellow of the US cover seems too garish for my liking. Although, I could just be biased considering my copy of the book is the UK edition.

      I prefer the UK edition as well but like you said we may be biased haha! I love the blue and gold as well I think it looks a lot better than the US version with the yellow.

        It’s also minimalist and sometimes I prefer that over really fussy designs.

    I love the Caraval cover too!! And Strange the Dreamer is on my TBR. πŸ™‚ My current favorite cover has to be the Penguin Classics edition of The Island at the End of the World by Sam Taylor or the American Gods cover with the tree design. πŸ™‚

    I have never heard of Revenge and the Wild but that cover is just so cool! I looked it up on goodreads and its sounds so interesting. Instantly added to my TBR!

    Great post! Loved a lot of these covers!

    Strange the Dreamer was even more beautiful on the inside! Loved it! I still need to read the Star Touched Queen myself!

    Caraval was meh, the writing in Star Touched Queen wasn’t quite my thing. But I do still want to finish Strange the Dreamer and try Dreamstrider. Nice list πŸ™‚

      I’ve heard that Caraval kind of is meh, which is disappointing since it’s so pretty! I like the more purple prose so I’m hoping I’ll like The Star Touched Queen with that.
      Hope you enjoy Strange the Dreamer and Dreamstrider and Thanks! πŸ™‚

    I’m such a cover snob and I totally judge books by their covers 🌸
    I love the covers of Caraval, Flame in The Mist and Bad Romance! I usually love white covers with pops of colour! Also love gold & black covers.

      Same here Michelle, I always feel slightly bad but I just can’t help it!
      White covers with vibrant colors are so beautiful and I really love the black, gold combo as well! πŸ™‚

    I totally adore the Flame in the Mist and The Star-Touched Queen covers not to mention I’ve been really wanting to read those books for quite some time πŸ˜› Judging books by their covers is something I do quite often lol

    I love the covers for The Star Touched Queen, Queens of Geek, Strange the Dreamer, After the Woods and Bad Romance! I really want to buy a physical copy of QoG because I only have an ARC and usually I don’t care about having multiple editions but pink hair is my favourite, haha!!
