Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week, she posts an idea relating to books and encourages other book bloggers to respond with their own top ten lists.
Since Top Ten Tuesday turns 10 years old this week, the prompt is to revisit an old topic and update it with new answers. I just moved into a new apartment and finally have no roommates so I’ve been on quite the decorating kick! Here are ten covers that I’d definitely frame for my new home. (Past answers can be found here.)
Covers that match my current (monochrome) aesthetic
The Night Circus and The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
While I was tempted to make my answer all of the different cover variants for The Night Circus, I showed remarkable restraint in only including the one. Erin Morgenstern is one of my favourite authors, so her books would definitely be the first to be framed.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
It should go without saying that I’d also want the rest of the series framed, as these covers are all gorgeous. I can’t resist minimalism, especially when it’s (mostly) monochromatic.
The Dark Tide by Alicia Jasinska
This cover is mesmerizing. If I don’t get it as a print, I would strongly consider getting something similar tattooed (if I ever work up the courage to get one).
Woven in Moonlight by Isabel Ibañez
I adore this animation style so much. The moon, in particular, catches my eye first every time I look at the cover.
Covers that would make great accent pieces
Dark and Deepest Red by Anna-Marie McLemore
The silhouette is absolutely gorgeous, and I love the subtlety of the dancing villagers within it.
Followers by Megan Angelo
This palette is much brighter than anything I own, but I just love the intertwined silhouettes and how well the colours complement one another.
Every Other Weekend by Abigail Johnson
The subtle couple, the symmetry worthy of an Accidentally Wes Anderson post, the “O” in other also functioning as a moon… I just love it all.
Sia Martinez and the Moonlit Beginning of Everything
The colours here are absolutely gorgeous! I love the cacti, the brightness of the sun, and the warm feeling that the cover brings me as a whole.
Love, Jacaranda by Alex Flinn
The water tower is very cute, and I love how the couple looks against the cityscape. It’s slightly similar to a painting that hangs in my living room from a Paint Night event, and I think they’d look lovely together.
What are your favourite book covers? Are there any that I should add to my home decor mood board?
