...and takes some with her afternoon tea as well.
I am a sucker for pretty covers, for books that catch my attention just by looking a certain way. I like my books looking good. Whether in my hand, on my bookshelves or in my bed, it is much more enjoyable reading if the book does not repel you.
I was honestly surprised at how little books there were in my house whose covers I truly enjoyed. I found a few, anyway.
The Snow Child - Eowyn Ivey
What I really like about this cover is the way the illustration is made. Also, I usually prefer covers that have something to do with the story, and this one does. So beautiful. Oh, and the colors.
On Beauty - Zadie Smith
This one got me the moment I saw it. I love how the brown goes well with the purple/pink and I really really like how there are flowers in the name of the author.
Persuasion - Jane Austen
Not much to say about this one. I like these editions a lot!
The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett
This one (and the next one as well) is from the Puffin collection. There are ten of them, with different colors and designs, and they are books aimed at children.
The Call of the Wild - Jack London
This one is my top favourite from the Puffin ones. I simply adore the blue and the dogs and the trees.. everything.
The Tales of Beedle the Bard - J. K. Rowling
I am so glad I own this copy of the tales and not the other brown one. I find this one so beautiful and the other one so ugly. Blue blue blue!
To the Lighthouse - Virginia Woolf
Two things about these editions - they are super cheap and they use beautiful paintings on the covers. This one is my favourite so far.
