Book Design Tag

Books can be SUPER PRETTY and make you cover buy.

They can also be so creative. The book designs, especially nowadays, are BRILLIANT. Designers come up with such good designs, I get heart eyes.

I found this tag at A Little Haze Book Blog and thought it would be fun to do!


1. A book you bought primarily (or completely) because of the cover.

the crown by kiera cass

The Crown by Kiera Cass. I didn’t even want to read this book because The Heir (it’s immediate prequel) was SO BAD. But. It’s so pretty. So of course I bought it.

2. A book you want to buy that has a beautiful cover

six of crows collector's edition

Since I already own the Six of Crows collector’s edition, I’m going to say Crooked Kindgom collector’s edition! These editions are way too beautiful.

3. Your favourite series design

the selection series

The Selection series by Kiera Cass. All the books look way too good. The dresses, especially.

4. Dust jacket: a book with a beautiful dust jacket, or something unexpected under the jacket

I’m not a huge hardcover follower, so I’m actually not sure. I’m going to say.. A Darker Shade of Magic collector’s edition.

5. Naked hardback: a gorgeous book with no dust jacket

Going with Six of Crows again!

6. A beautiful paperback

Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore cover

Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew J. Sullivan! When I noticed it in the bookstore last year, I was struck by how beautiful it looks!

7. A nonfiction book with a lovely cover

I’m not a non-fiction person so I don’t keep track of this genre. Skipping this one!

8. A book with great endpapers

Okay I don’t pay much attention to this too. But I did see endpapers of The Shadowhunter’s Codex once and LOVED IT. So I’ll choose that.

9. Spine: a book that looks just as gorgeous spine-out as it does face-out

Circe by Madeline Miller! It’s very catchy showing the spine on my shelf πŸ™‚

10. Tag some friends!

YOU! Only if you want to do this too, of course.

  1. I’ve only bought one book I think in the last 10 years, and that was a nonfiction book. But I can see how attractive covers and designs can often persuade people to buy a book, as the blurb about the book doesn’t always give you enough to know if you’ll like it

  2. I am big on book designs – though, the ones that catch my attention the most are the ones that look drawn with an outline. Oooh! Six of Crows looks gorgeous! I love the red on the side. Thanks for sharing the tag!

  3. Pretty books are SO ADDICTING – I own too many that I bought because of the cover πŸ˜… I try not to judge based off the cover but… I definitely do! Which is funny, because some of my favorite books have literally the worst covers πŸ˜‚ Lovely post – have a comfy week πŸ™‚

    1. AGREED. So many good books have ugly covers, it’s not funny. I’ve especially seen this in romance where the cover has a shirtless dude or something but the story is so deep and meaningful?! Misleads and surprises me all the time.

      Thank you! Hope you have a lovely week as well πŸ™‚
