Dreamy Book Cover Tag

I did not get tagged by I saw it on SOFII @A BOOK. A THOUGHT. Despite the numerous debate and advice to not judge a book by its cover, I do judge a book by its cover. And despite the numerous occasion where the story is not as good as the cover is, I still buy a book based on its cover first. Therefore, this tag seems to be MY kind of tag, so without further a do, let’s get started!

“No Ideas But in Things” A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it


The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler. I didn’t enjoy the book when I read it, but the cover perfectly captures the story: the sand for the seaside town, PoC Elise with a scar on her throat, Christian Kane, notebooks, seaglass, sharpie… It’s the most accurate book cover I’ve ever seen.

“Dark and Lovely” A book cover that is so creepalicious you just want to eat it up

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black. The moss looks dark and menancing, but they also looks like chocolate moss cake that I love eating ahaha. I also recently finished this book (review coming soon!) and really enjoyed it!

“Sugary Sweet” A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug


To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. I love how sweet and fluffy it is and knowing what will happen to the girl on the cover (aka Lara Jean) makes me want to give her a hug and save her from the embarrasment.

“The Simple Aesthetic” A book cover that stuns with the most minimalistic of design


A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab. I love that it only use 3 colors that deeply contrast each other, so that it stands out when you see it among other books. And the design is not that complicated either, I just love it so much.

“Cover Envy” A book cover you wish you had on your shelves, but don’t yet

The Wicked Deep by Shea Earnshaw and To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo. I mean, look how gorgeous they are!

“Traveling Abroad” A beautiful book cover featuring a country outside of your own


Of course I need to find an excuse to include this series in my answers, right?

“The Color Wheel” A cover that showcases one of your favorite colors

8573642 16065584

Tbh I don’t have a favorite color, they tend to change overtime. I like all colors, its just I have different favorite shade. For example, I love all shades of blue, lavender, bright yellow, lime green, and blood red. Those are almost all colors but they all have different shade. I always have an affinity for blue-purple hue so I choose Incarnate by Jodie Meadows and Goddess by Josephine Angelini.

“Switching Gears” A cover change you absolutely adore

Harry Potter by J.K Rowling. This series seems to have all the amazing covers. The original ones are already very good, but then comes the scholastic editions, 10th anniverssary edition, collector’s edition…. They are all beautiful and they demand my money. So far my favorite is definitely the new scholastic edition, the 20th anniversary special, and of course, the illustrated edition.

“Oldie but Goodie” A favorite cover of your favorite classic

Vintage’s classic of Dracula by Bram Stroker. I love how simple it is, but the drops of blood are very eye catching and fits the story really well!

“And the Winner is…” Which book cover mentioned above is your favorite?


I knew a trick question was coming… Obviously I love all of them, that’s why I incorporate them in my answer, I don’t think I can choose! I would say Incarnate though, because it’s just so eyecatching and I love the color palette 💜

  1. Ahhh yes, To All the Boys has the cutest cover–although I didn’t like the book itself. D: And I totally neeeeed both The Wicked Deep and To Kill a Kingdom on my shelf! I’ve read TKaK already, but as an ebook, and the WONDERFUL story makes me want the physical copy even more!!! ❤

    – Aimee @ Aimee, Always


  2. Oh this is fun! Really anything that encourages us to share pretty covers is. I love the cover for The Wicked Deep- and I think it would look even more amazing in person. And SAME with the Lara Jean covers- they’re probably my favorite fluffies of all time.


  3. I didn’t like The Summer of Chasing Mermaids too, but i agree that cover perfectly captures all that the book was about! AND YES- endless hugs to Lara Jean for what she’d endure through the book! Loved your answers, and I think I’ll tag myself here too, lol! <33


  4. Ohhh I love the rainbow covers SO MUCH. I just can’t stop staring at the gorgeousness. 😍😍 The more colours the better, I always say haha. And I do love the minimalism ones too though, like ADSOM is just so so aesthetically pleasing. I also love the Lara Jean cover.😍And the book. Omg the book is so perfect.


  5. You want to know something super embarrassing? I’ve seen that cover for A Darker Shade of Magic a million times and I always thought it was hideous. But reading your post, for the VERY FIRST TIME, I realized that person’s legs are actually…well, legs. I don’t know why, I always thought it was a hat, like a pointy wizard hat, and that their head was a beard (envision it like the person is upside down). Wow. WOW. I guess I never bothered to find a larger version of it before, because my mind is kind of blown right now.

    Sadly, I still think it’s ugly 😦


  6. Ah, yes, I love the cover of ADSOM! The minimalism design is so stunning (and the Vicious duology covers are beautiful as well). 😍

    And I love the new covers of Harry Potter! I really want the special House editions. 😭 And there’s something about The Darkest Part Of the Forest cover that I really like, but it’s so aesthetically pleasing!
