“NO IDEAS BUT IN THINGS” A BOOK COVER THAT PERFECTLY EXPRESSES THE NOVEL INSIDE IT

30303793

Dark Tales by Shirley Jackson. This probably seems weird but I think the cover of this short story collection is perfect! Jackson’s writing is always about mundane middle class lives that go wrong / have something spooky happen to them. So, a black cat is not only synonymous with witches (spooky) it’s also a very mundane (no hate!!!) pet to have as it’s so common, and then there is the big shadow (spooky!) and then the sneaky peak of the eyes of the cat through the slit of light, which is mysterious and also a little bit ominous, which totally represents the spooky twist we find in every one of Jackson’s stories.

Well… that’s what I thought anyway!

 

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

It by Stephen King. I need this cover for It. I refuse to buy the book until I get this cover!

“SUGARY SWEET” A CUTE COVER THAT IS SO FLUFFY YOU WANT TO GIVE IT A HUG

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. Can I just say, I only read horror, crime and thriller books so finding a “cute” book cover is so hard. I love the colour palette and design work on this cover though!

 

“THE SIMPLE AESTHETIC” A BOOK COVER THAT STUNS WITH THE MOST MINIMALISTIC OF DESIGN

32288096

The Watcher by Ross Armstrong. So, ignoring the big red sticker, this simplistic design really draws in your eye!

 

“COVER ENVY” A BOOK COVER YOU WISH YOU HAD ON YOUR SHELVES, BUT DON’T YET

The Night Ocean by Paul la Farge. Look at it! Ugh, so pretty, but ugh, £20.

 

“TRAVELING ABROAD” A BEAUTIFUL BOOK COVER FEATURING A COUNTRY OUTSIDE OF YOUR OWN

The Lonely City by Olivia Laing. New York on the cover, and not glamourous NYC. I like the realness & grittiness of this pic.

“THE COLOR WHEEL” A COVER THAT SHOWCASES ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE COLORS

Dolores Claiborne by Stephen King. On my screen I’m seeing this cover as a really vibrant hot pink cerise shade. Pink is my favourite colour and I like this shade of it! I don’t know if this is an actual released book cover or just someone’s freelance work, but I love it!

 

“SWITCHING GEARS” A COVER CHANGE YOU ABSOLUTELY ADORE 

I actually really like both these covers for My Sister’s Bones by Nuala Ellwood, but I prefer the second one because it fits in with the tone of the book so much better.

(I don’t absolutely adore this cover change but I couldn’t think of any cover changes I love, only cover changes I hate!)

 

“OLDIE BUT GOODIE” A FAVORITE COVER OF YOUR FAVORITE CLASSIC

Image result for classic book covers

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. I guess this is more of a “modern classic” but are we seeing this?! It’s so rustic and vintage feeling!

(UPDATE: I just re-read the question and this isn’t my favourite classic… I’ve never even read it)

 

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

Seeing double? Sorry! I love this cover though ❤❤❤

    1. Yes, it’s a very creepy cover, I love it! I would love to cuddles cats but I’m allergic to them. My own cat even has to stay away most of the time, which is why we had to get hypoallergenic dogs haha 😛

  1. Ooooh, I lovedddd all of your choices, Zuky! Me = hates clowns, but literally, that It cover is so creepily pleasing. I couldn’t not pick up that book without that cover either. And that Of Mice and Men cover is literally so unique but sooooo perfect for that book. And I agree about the Homegoing one. I love how they made it so perfect with the background. Wonderful post, Zuky, as always, but with such pretty pictures as well. XD

    1. Thank you! Yes, I hate clowns too, think that’s why I’m so drawn to It and this cover version. I read the question wrong for the classic one! I’ve never even read Of Mice and Men (on my TBR) but still, I love that cover. Thanks again for the tag 😀

      1. Haha, I’m pretty much thinking the same. 😛 The trailer looked really good, and I definitely want to see it, I just hope it doesn’t wind up being disappointing. I’m excited, but cautious about getting my hopes up too much. 🙂

      2. I don’t like the new clown tho! What was so scary about Tim Curry was that he looked a pretty normal clown (apart from the teeth lol) but in this one they’ve tried to make it extra scary and that does the opposite for me. Simple is better. 😋

      3. Yeah, that is a very good point. I like Tim Curry’s overall look better as well. 🙂
        I’m kind of holding out hope that they just focused on the parts they thought would scare people more in the trailer to grab people’s attention and that he’ll be more toned down at points in the actual film. We’ll see, I suppose! Here’s hoping though! lol

  2. Lovely choices, Zuky 🙂 I cannot look away from The Night Ocean, it’s literally hypnotizing and so beautiful!
    I also love the Dark Tales one and The Watcher’s. There’s just something about them that pulls me in.

    1. Thanks! Yes, The Night Ocean is sooo gorgeous. My boyfriend said he’d buy it for me if the cover impressed him and when I showed him it he just shrugged his shoulders, think it’s safe to say he won’t be getting it for me lol 😥

      1. Oh no! Bad boyfriend XD
        Let’s hope he changes his mind… Or, you know, try to persuade him. Not gently 😛
        You deserve to get that cover in your bookshelf, goddamn it! XD

  3. I’ve been looking around for that IT edition, but I am sorry to say it apparently is the kindle one, so no physical copy of it exists… but I found a really similar one from the same publisher!! Here’s the ISBN: 9781501142970
    I found it on amazon UK but is crazy expensive (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Stephen-King/dp/1501142976/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1491480034&sr=8-1&keywords=9781501142970) for once on my corner of the world is apparently cheaper! (https://www.amazon.es/Stephen-King/dp/1501142976/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1491480020&sr=8-1&keywords=9781501142970)
