Today I have decided to do another book tag, and I found this one on Dreamland Book Blog, which can be found here, https://dreamlandbookblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/07/the-aesthetically-pleasing-book-tag/. It’s called the Aesthetically Pleasing Book Tag, and you use your books located on your bookshelf to answer the questions.
Let’s get this book tag started!
1. Best color combo on a book cover
That would be Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim. The colors of gold and blue are so beautiful with the OwlCrate exclusive color!
2. Best typography/font on a book cover
Stain by A.G. Howard, I love how the letters fit perfectly with this amazing retelling of “The Princess and the Pea”.
3. Best simple cover
One of my favorites is Flight or Flight by Samantha Young. The picture shows our two main characters on a plane, which fits with their amazing journey in this book.
4. Best endpages
The House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig. These end pages are black with silver drawings of sea creatures and masks, which fit with the darkness and mystery of this book.
5. Best map
That would be The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh. Not only is the map on a bright red background, but it is actually directly on the inside once you open the cover.
6. Best naked hardback
The Girl the Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young. The hard cover is pure white with a simple quote of “The Stones Don’t Lie” in blue lettering.
7. Best back cover
The Lantern’s Ember by Colleen Houck. It is black with gold leaves around the description, which helps provide to this eerie origin of Halloween tale.
8. Best chapter headers
Romanov by Nadine Brandes, with the simple magical circle, it helps the reader feel the magic within every page.
9. Best illustrations
An old hard copy of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. The illustrator adds a certain element to this beautiful story by allowing the reader to look at the pictures of important scenes throughout the book.
10. Best spine
The OwlCrate exclusive edition of The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White. It’s a simple greenish spine with gold lettering that adds to the wonder of the story.
11. Favorite cover on your shelves
Now this is a hard question, because I have several covers that I love on my shelves, but if I had to chose it would be…Sea Witch by Sarah Henning. The way Ursula is depicted on the cover is just so beautiful, and it’s what drew me to the story in the first place.
This was a fun book tag to do, and I tag anyone who would like to participate in this tag!
