😍 Top 5 Most Aesthetic Books πŸ˜

Do you ever turn to the cover of a book and start internally screaming (occaisonally externally)? Sometimes this may be to mourn the death of my favourite character, or as a kind of shield between me and any cringeness occuring inside, but often it’s beacause the cover is so beautiful. So today I’m counting down my top 5 most aesthetic books – what would yours be?

5. The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

I recently finished this one, and it’s as beautiful on the outside as inside. There are also symbols printed down the side of the pages that all match up when you close it – it’s always very satisfying when you can see you’ve finished a shape! I also love how it’s so busy, and a bit mental, like the book – although I’m not sure I’m the biggest fan of the silhouette?

Salt to the Sea: Amazon.co.uk: Sepetys, Ruta: 9780141347400: Books

4. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

This book was one of my first posts on this site, and I think the cover was what really drew me to it. Ruta Sepetys is such a good writer (maybe a bit too depressing for lockdown!) but all of her books have great covers. And content.

3. Encounters by Jason Wallace

I LOVE the style of this cover. The creepy silhouette in her glasses is just perfect… although I do have to wonder if those freckles are real! Another weird thing is that this girl really wasn’t the main character, although maybe the only one of them who would wear sunglasses.

2. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

You couldn’t have an aesthetics list without including at least one of Bardugo’s books. Six of Crows’ cover is amazing, but Crooked Kingdom goes above and beyond – like the book. In my opinion.

My friend was trying to tell me that the limited edition covers were better, but I’m not sure. This one is pretty snazzy… and it’s about a tenner cheaper, so who am I to complain πŸ™‚

And Number One Goes To…

1. They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

This list couldn’t be complete without this gorgeous novel. STUNNING both inside and out, I implore you to read They Both Die at the End! Normally, I prefer the original covers of books – Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. Need I say more – but this second edition is beautiful. (I’m running out of adjectives!).

In short, this book is so great, the first cover’s ugly and this one I’d date.

I’m a teenager (and Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore, and books. Honestly, any books I can get my hands on but my personal favourites are fantasy, mystery or your classic teen romance (it’s ironic I know but you can’t really go wrong with 'Eleanor and Park'). And one day, I decided to try and share some of my opinions on some great – and not so great – books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it; I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of books (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.
