Hey guys! It’s time for another book tag! I’ve been at an awful slump for the past few weeks – but don’t worry – I’ve started Nevernight and I hope that will bring me out of it! In the mean time, I’m gonna have a crack at The Aesthetically Pleasing Book Tag!
This tag was created by Book Syrup on Youtube, and you can find the original video here!
1. Best color combo on a book cover
Not gonna lie, I ain’t the biggest fan on pink/purplish colours, but the Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray totally SLAYED it with the watercolour artwork!!! All three covers look stunning with elements of different cities and gorgeous landscapes (they are crucial elements of the actual books too!).
2. Best typography/font on a book cover
I love the font of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo! This book and its sequel Crooked Kingdom are both fantastic fantasy books and I highly recommend them!
3. Best simple cover
I actually had to think a little while for this one, because I actually don’t own many books with simple covers! So I’ll go with Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell!. I love that mint colour with the pink lettering!
4. Best endpages
NEVERNIGHT by Jay Kristoff WINS – this is my current read and I’m in love with how beautiful this book is! This book honestly screams the word aesthetic!
5. Best map
NEVERNIGHT WINS AGAIN! This book actually has two maps!
6. Best naked hardback
I actually don’t own that many hardbacks (just to point that out) – so NEVERNIGHT WINS for the third time! (I ain’t even sorry about this) – but just LOOK AT THE BOOK! The reflective-looking raven is gorgeous right? It’s a beauty!
7. Best back cover
This one is easy – The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson! Cute dogs and puppies – what could be better?
8. Best chapter headers
When I first started reading Shadow and Bone (book 1 of Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy) – I have found my favourite chapter headers! Just look at it? How beautiful is the graphic? It has got Russian/royalty vibes which made it even better!
9. Best illustrations
Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff wins this one! There are so many stunning images and at times hilarious illustrations which I ADORE! If you haven’t read the Illuminae Files yet, I suggest that you do! (OBSIDIO NEEDS TO COME ASAP!)

10. Best spine
The Traitor’s Kiss has the most beautiful and unique spine. [You can fight me on this.]
11. Favorite cover on your shelves
Wrapping up this amazing tag feature my favourite book: The Raven Boys by none other than Queen Maggie Stiefvater! This cover is forever my love.
That’s it for today guys! Hope you enjoyed my post! Feel like doing this tag? I TAG YOU! xx
