T5W | Favourite Covers

Welcome one and all to this week’s Top 5 Wednesday post! For those of you who don’t know Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme/challenge which was created by the wonderful Lainey from gingerreadslainey and is now overseen by the equally lovely Sam from Thoughts on Tomes. Every Wednesday, participants devise their Top 5 based on a given topic.

This Wednesday’s topic is Favourite CoversWe’ve done this topic in the past, but with so many new, beautiful covers, it is time for an update! 

As Sam has pointed out, this has been a popular Top 5 Wednesday topic in the past and I’m sure I’ve gushed about my favourite covers countless times in the past. So, for this Top 5 Wednesday, I’ve decided to focus on more recent favourite book covers, specifically my Favourite Covers from 2018 Reads. These might not necessarily be from books published in 2018 but they’re all books I read this year. So, without further ado, let’s see my favourite covers…

5. The Queens of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton
4. The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
3. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
2. Circe by Madeline Miller
1. The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry

I don’t think I really need to explain why any of these are my favourite covers from books I read in 2018 – they’re obviously stunning. Suffice it to say, I’m a sucker for any/all of the following: foiling, spot-on typography, and intricately detailed patterns.

What are some of your favourite covers? What do you look for in a book cover? Do you have a Top 5 Wednesday post for this week? Be sure to link me below if you do!

      I agree! And Circe is so much more stunning in person too because of the way the foiling catches the light. :)

      It’s gorgeous, isn’t it? I originally read an eARC of City of Brass but I loved the hardcover so much that I couldn’t resist buying myself a copy when it was published.
