Aesthetically Pleasing Book Tag

Hey you all! Today I want to share something new with you. I was browsing some of my favorite blogs and came across the Aesthetically Pleasing Book Tag on ReadInge’s blog, and it looked so fun and beautiful that I couldn’t resist doing one of my own too. So, I’m going to take you on a little tour through some of my favorite books ❤

1. The best color combo on a book cover:


I love bold colors that almost seem to pop of the pages. These two covers are my favorites when it comes to color.

2. Best typography/ font on a book cover:


Betsy Cornwell’s Mechanica has some of the most beautiful font I’ve ever seen. It suits the book to perfection and I love the steam punk feel of it! The rest of the cover isn’t too shabby either 😉

3. Best simple cover:

This one proofed one of the most difficult things to find on my shelves. I don’t own a lot of books with simple covers. Most of them have quite a lot of things going on, on the cover. But Jennifer L Armentrout’s The problem with forever fits the tag “simple” I think. It’s just letters and colors, yet it’s really beautiful despite its simplicity.


4. Best endpages:

Another hard one. I don’t own a lot of books that have endpages with pictures on them, or that have beautiful colors or something else that’s remarkable. But, I gave my little sister a copy of H.P. Lovecraft’s Complete Fiction last year and that book has the most beautiful endpages I have ever seen ❤


5. Best map:

When I was thinking about which map I love the most in my books I realised that many YA fantasy novels don’t even have maps which is such a shame. First I was thinking of using Tolkien’s map of Middle Earth because that’s one of my favorites, but then I remembered a map in an old children’s book of mine that I really love. So, I took a picture of Chris Riddell’s map for Beyond the Deepwood. Isn’t it pretty?


6. Best naked hardback:

Well, this one was easy as I own only one hardback that has something of an illustration on it when you remove the dustjacket haha. But, nevertheless, I really like the naked cover of Alexandra Bracken’s Passenger.


7. Best back cover:

I never realised that many books have a seriously dull back cover, until I was perusing my shelves for a pretty back cover. It took me a while to find one, but Rebel of the Sands has a beautiful one!


8 Best chapter headers:

Again, something most books don’t have. The only shelve where I could find a few books with chapter headers was my “retelling” shelve. A.G. Howard’s got the most beautiful ones I’ve ever seen so I took a picture of Splintered.


9. Best Illustrations:

Okay, I couldn’t choose. I love Chris Riddell’s artwork in Beyond the Deepwood, but I also love the drawings/ etchings in Alice in Wonderland so I took a picture of both 😉


10. Best spine:

I don’t really like spines that are decorated ornately. With a lot of books standing next to each other it gets kinda messy when you have too much spines that have all these things going on, on them. So, I chose a spine that is simple, but has a beautiful font.


11. Favorite cover on your shelves:

Seriously, are there people who can choose only one favorite? I couldn’t do it. I’ve got so many books with beautiful covers that I had to share a few with you all. So, here’s a little slideshow with some of my faves.

I’d really like to see more aesthetically pleasing books, so, if you want to post your most beautiful ones in a blogpost too, please do! Happy reading you all ❤
