I judge books. BY THEIR COVER.



I like pretty books and I cannot lie. I am sorry but I can’t. Far too often have I went to the bookstore with the intention of buying a bunch of eye-candies. If the story turns out awesome? YAYYY! But EVEN IF IT DOESN’T, the books look fucking gorgeous on my shelf AND THAT’S ALWAYS A PLUS! *shrugs*

I am not even guilty about it. Nuh-uh. In fact, I am PROUD AS HELL of all those beautiful (if not so interesting) books adorning my shelf. (Red Queen comes to mind. Heh. xD)

And to celebrate this love of beautiful books (which I am sure ALL OF YOU SHARE AS WELL πŸ˜‰ ), I am starting a new series on my blog – COLOR OF THE MONTH – where I will post the prettiest book covers with new colors EVERY MONTH!

And we are starting off WITH MY FAVORITE (if a bit cliche) PINKKK!!!

[Note: I haven’t read any of these but I am planning to! <3]

🌸 A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall : Okay, do I even NEED to tell you why this is MY VERY FIRST CHOICE?! I mean LOOK AT IT! JUST LOOOK! It’s just tooo fucking gorgeous for words. Romantic, heartwarming, the RIGHT AMOUNT OF CHEESY – AHH!!! Can’t stop gushing about it! ❀

🌸 Dear Fang, With Love by Rufi Thorpe : This cover matches the story – about High school lovers turned distant parents – beautifully. I can feel the unsaid words, suppressed emotions, depression, trauma, anxiety, estrangement – EVERYTHING. An absolute beauty, wouldn’t you say?

🌸 The Royals by Rachel Hawkins: Okay, from the title itself I can tell that this will be one of those cheesy stories where the girl has no desire to be a princess or something but she is forced to and all. LIKE HOW CAN YOU SAY NO TO SUCH A LAVISH LIFESTYLE?! It will always remain a mystery to me. BUT that doesn’t mean one cannot enjoy such a one-time-read romance from time to time, does it? πŸ˜‰ If I do end up reading it, I won’t go in with high hopes, that’s for sure. If this book manages to capture my heart, that’ll definitely be a plus BUT EVEN IF IT DOESN’T, it’ll be nice to own such a pretty copy! ❀

🌸 The Awakening by Kate Chopin: Almost ALL of you must have heard about this book, haven’t you? I mean, you MUST have read a review or another floating around the blogosphere. Dealing with female infidelity in an honest-to-god way, there is NO WAY this book could end up being a disappointment. AND WITH A COVER LIKE THAT? NO CHANCE!

🌸 Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See: I’d be lying if I were to tell you that the cover captivated me more than the title. There is a certain mysteriousness, a certain complexity to the title of this book that I couldn’t help but add it to my TBR. The cover was definitely a plus and the fact that its Historical Fiction adds to the long list of reasons why I am dying to read this one. BUT OH THE COVER!!! *heart eyes forever*

🌸 The Idiot by Elif Batuman: The sheer simplicity of the cover would capture ANYONE’S heart really. You’d be FORCED TO WANT TO KNOW the contents of the book. Seriously. Just keep looking at it. No, no. Don’t take away your eyes yet. Focus on the pretty background, then the rock, then the title – rushing to the bookstore yet? πŸ˜‰

🌸 The Bed Moved by Rebecca Schiff: I am sorry but LOOK AT IT! It’s TOO FUCKING INTRIGUING! I know it isn’t all pink but I mean COME ON! How could you NOT want to read it after the first impression like THAT? It’s a collection of horror stories – as you must have guessed by the title and the font and all – and I AM WAY TOO EXCITED to lay my hands on it ASAP!

🌸 A Guide for Murdered Children by Sarah Sparrow: Stephen King says, ‘There is no safe place to read this book.” and I gotta say between the title and the fact that this is a psychological thriller, he is right! The only good that’ll come out of owning it – apart from it looking pretty on your shelf – is that people will stop leaving you in charge of their kids. (insert echo voice) FOREVER. EVER. EVER.

🌸 A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Bernard: When I first saw this cover, I immediately fell in love with it. The way it depicts silent AND chaotic states of mind – both at the same time – perfectly blends with the title. This is a story of quiet yet thunderous love and I have an inkling that I am going to adore every single moment of reading this beauty!

🌸 Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams: ”QUEENIE will have you nodding in recognition, crying in solidarity, and rooting for this unforgettable character every step of the way.” x.X I mean, for a cover as gorgeous, daring, and bold as THAT I am willing to endure ANYTHING! *heart eyes* ❀

  2. Hahahah I too judge books by their covers for sure! πŸ˜› Only some rare ones, especially classics, can get a pass though. πŸ˜› But damn, The Idiot by Elif Batuman has an insane cover hahahahah Imagine selling that design to the publisher. “Hey, I want a rock with a pink background yo. Thanks.” Looking forward to the rest of this fun series, Rain! πŸ˜€

  3. I like Snow Flower and the Secret Fan cover the best, but really, they’re all nice. My favorite color is eggplant because it’s dark and mysterious . . . but ask me tomorrow and I may like a different color because there are an infinite number of colors from which to choose!

    1. I LIKE IT AS WELLL!! The cover AND the title – so intriguing! 😍

      Haha! My favorite color keeps changing as well – show me a pretty pastel dress and suddenly it’s my favorite – show me newly formed leaves and I fall in love with green – show me the beautiful seaside and the varying hues of blue capture my heart like nothing else!! 😍😍😍


  4. They all look really nice together. No shade on judging books by their covers, I do it all the time ahahahah. I really love Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, keep wanting to read that one because I really enjoyed one of her other books. πŸ™‚

  5. I totally judge books by their covers too… whoops. These are all so beautiful ahh I love soft pink covers ❀ low-key the cover for Royals is probably why I picked up the book in the first place ❀

    (I have to admit A Guide For Murdered Children though is triggering me… not comic sans noooooo lol)

  6. This post was so pleasing to the eye πŸ˜©πŸ’•. I was honestly surprised that I’ve read a handful of these books – I guess I have a thing for pink too πŸ˜‚. A Little Something Different is such a memorable book (that bench is iconic πŸ™ŒπŸΌ)! And that cover for The Idiot!? It speaks to my soul πŸ˜‚. I’ve heard such great things about Queenie and need to read it ASAP!

      and hon! I AM SO SOOO GLAD YOU LIKED THESE COVERSS!!! PINK LOOKS SOOO PRETTY ON COVERSS!!! ❀ ❀ ❀ Also, I wonder – what's your favorite color? That you love to see on book covers?

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Well, technically my favourite colour is black. But I don’t know how fun the covers for it would be! πŸ˜€ Other than that I love emerald green, maroon red and deep purple. ❀


  7. Okay one of these is kind of freaking me out as the title is super disturbing but the cover looks like a kids book 🀨 anyway who doesn’t love pretty covers? Snow Flower & Quiet Kind Of Thunder are my favourite. I think I have a weakness for hidden covers. Like I love having a dust jacket with a book but for it to then be beautifully decorated beneath that too is superb.
