Top 5 Tuesday is created and run by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm. You can join the fun by checking out the topics for the month here.
I think this week’s topic might be my favourite topic since I joined in with this weekly feature! Thank you Shanah for giving me the opportunity to scroll though Goodreads and look at all the pretty covers and then absolutely panic because I had so many tabs open and I couldn’t decide on five! So this week I’m giving you my EIGHT favourite covers of 2019!
Crier’s War by Nina Varela
This is one of my most anticipated releases of the 2019. I adore this cover – it’s so intricate, everytime you look you see something different. It also reflects different colours in the light which is just so beautiful!
The Deathless Girls by Kiran Millwood Hargrave
Need I explain why I find this so beautiful? Oh it’s just so pretty – the colours, the snake, the mushrooms, the hands, it is just stunning. I also here there are some INCREDIBLE
Like a Love Story by Abdi Nazemian
This is one of those covers which is absolutely stunning in person – careful spot gloss and embossing make this book an absolute joy to hold! I love the yellow and pink, it’s so warm against the intricate grey cityscape.
Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir
This cover just screams necromancy and will go down as one of THE most iconic book cosplays (I predict). The mask, the power in the stance, the daggers, the gauntlet GAH this cover is just so sexy.
Wilder Girls by Rory Power
This cover is just so beautiful – the softness interposed with the hard, haunting body horror, is so impactful! I also love the colour of this book, it’s so soft and mysterious.
Descendant of the Crane – Joan He
Another gorgeous fantasy cover – I just adore this. I find it very peaceful and calming. The colours are so relaxing, the font is lovely and the crane and the way the beak comes over the title, it’s stunning!!
I Wish You All the Best by Mason Deaver
This is one of the few books that sit face out on my shelf currently, and it’s because I find it so so beautiful. It’s beautiful in it’s simplicity. The way Ben leans against Nathan as if pulling strength is just gorgeous.
Slay by Brittney Morris
How powerful is the cover?! The way the model stares directly at you, her glasses, the strength in her gaze! I love the graphic effect on the right side, it really gives the gamer vibe, and the bright pink is awesome!
And that’s my choices this week – sorry I couldn’t narrow it further….And I won’t lie, you could ask me again next week and I’d have another 8 stunning covers I adore. 2019 has been so awesome for gorgeous covers and I can’t wait to see what 2020 brings!
