Exploring My Bookshelves is a bookish meme hosted by Addlepates and Book Nerds
Here’s how it works:
- Post a picture of your bookshelf (preferably literal, but e-shelves work too).
- She’ll give you something about your shelf to write about. It might be your favourite cover, your favourite author, your book you most recently bought etc
- Then give the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it)
- And finally, go back to her post and send her a link!
So today’s topic is the prettiest book cover. Aaaaaaand, I have way too many options to choose from… 😛 So please be patient while going through this post!!
Firstly- A Song For Summer by Eva Ibbotson.
When Ellen Carr abandons grey, dreary London to become housekeeper at an experimental school in Austria, she finds her destiny.
Swept into an idyllic world of mountains, music, eccentric teachers and wayward children, Ellen brings order and joy to all around her. But it’s the handsome, mysterious gardener, Marek, who intrigues her – Marek, who has a dangerous secret. As Hitler’s troops spread across Europe, Ellen has promises to keep, even if they mean she must sacrifice her future happiness…
There is something so serene and beautiful about the smile of this girl on the cover, I don’t know why but I find myself smiling back whenever I look at the book.
Up next is Winter Song by Jean-Claude Mourlevat
In a gripping dystopian novel, four teenagers risk impossible odds to fight against tyranny in a world of dangerous choices — and reemerging hope.
Escape. Milena, Bartolomeo, Helen, and Milos have left their prison-like boarding schools far behind, but their futures remain in peril. Fleeing across icy mountains from a terrifying pack of dog-men sent to hunt them down, they are determined to take up the fight against the despotic government that murdered their parents years before. Only three will make it safely to the secret headquarters of the resistance movement. The fourth is captured and forced to participate in a barbaric game for the amusement of the masses — further proof of the government’s horrible brutality. Will the power of one voice be enough to rouse a people against a generation of cruelty? Translated from the French, this suspenseful story of courage, individualism, and freedom has resonated with young readers across the globe
To highlight my fascination towards this cover, I snapped a picture of the exact portion of the cover that grabbed my eyes.
Do you see the color of her eyes? Amazing, right?? The book wasn’t that good though.. 😛
The next books are ebooks, so I didn’t have the privilege of actually holding these books to read.. But they are beautiful all the same. I’m not giving the blurb for these books as most of them are 2nd or 3rd parts of a series..
Here’s the cover to Forever Jack ( Eversea #2)- Natasha Boyd
I love love love this cover. I just can’t explain why.
Next- This Girl (Slammed #3)- Colleen Hoover
😛 Cute right? C’mon, its a CoHo book..
Beautiful Disaster- Jamie Mcguire (This is the last one, I swear)
No explanations required as to why I love it…
So what’s your prettiest book cover?? 🙂
Till the next time…
