Hi everyone! I hope y’all had a good weekend! I’ve been studying most of the weekend getting ready for a final tomorrow and getting ready to go back to clinical next week!
Hopefully towards the end of next week, beginning of the next, I’ll have some time to read and get back to posting on here!

No Ideas But in Things – A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it.
Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore! I had recieved a copy of this book a couple of years in an OwlCrate box, and it was a really interesting book because it this family of women who live in a place that is close with nature and practice a type of magic that is so close to the land that they live on!
I just feel like the flowers on the cover is a great insight into the book with a group of women who live with the wildness of nature and trying to preserve the beauty of it when you work in harmony with it.
Dark and Lovely – A book cover that is so creepalicious you just want to eat it up.
Another book that was included in an older OC box which is The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd Jones. This is the paperback version of the cover, but I feel like this particular cover fits the prompt better than the hardcover one. I’d pitch it as a modern contemporary gothic book, and I don’t normally read horrorish books, but there was something about this book that drew me in. Essentially the story is about this group of teenagers that sold their heart to get out of bad situations.
Sugary Sweet – A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug.
I love the new cover for American Panda by Gloria Chao with its colors, font, and the MC sitting at a table with a cup and couple of books. I haven’t read this book yet, but it’s one that I’ve been wanting to read for a while now.
The Simple Aesthetic- A book cover that stuns with the most minimalistic of design.
I feel like this is a book cover that I always talk about, but I love the simplicity of The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I love that this book cover is just like these colors that are just floating in water and the blending of the colors. It’s just a simple cover that had me picking it to see what it’s about. (and yes, I read it years ago!)
Cover Envy – A book cover you wish you had on your shelves, but don’t yet.
So, this book hasn’t came out yet, but I can’t wait to get a copy of Crush by Tracy Wolff. This is the sequel to Crave, and I can’t wait to continue Grace and Jaxon’s story. The cover for Crush has been changed since the original cover reveal, but to be honest, I love this cover with the crystal and the amount of empty space that makes you look at it.
Travelling Abroad – A beautiful book cover featuring a country outside of your own.
The only book that I can think of at the moment is Kiss Me in Paris by Catherine Rider. I have only read the first 100 ish pages and put it down. I don’t know it I had yet to hit the hook or the book or it it wasn’t for me.
The Colour Wheel – A cover that showcases one of your favourite colours.
Prince Charming by Rachel Hawkins (although I normally call it Royals since that was the time before it was republished as a paperback). I read this book about two years ago when I bought a copy on a beach vacation trip after graduation. It took me a little while to get into it because I was hoping that Daisy would get with Sebastian before Miles was really introduced into the story, but once I got into the story, I feel love with it!
Switching Gears – A cover change you absolutely adore.
Cover changes isn’t something that I really keep up with, but I love the covers for the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi. I like the blue-grays in the cover along with the little things that hold so much meaning within the story itself. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the original cover as well, but that one could have been the cover for any dystopian book.
Oldie but Goodie – A favorite cover of your favorite classic.
Classic books is not my thing by any means, but I love the covers (mainly the spines because it’s what I see the most) for the Puffin collection of Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, Heidi, and A Little Princess with the flowers and foliage.
And the Winner is… Which book cover mentioned above is your favourite?
American Panda! There’s something about the mix of colors on the walls with the MC sitting and looking off with her cup of coffee (tea?).
Bookshelf Tour Tag
I was tagged by Danni @ _forbookssake to do this tag!
How many bookshelves do you have?
I have 4 bookcases in my room (2 full sized and 2 half sizes) with a total of 11 shelves between them!
How many books are on your bookshelves?
Bookcase #1: 121
Bookcase #2: 136
Bookcase #3: 100
Bookcase #4: 70
I wasn’t even about to begin to count all of my unread books around my room!
How do you organise your books?
I organize my books based on how much I like them! So, my first bookcase on the left has all of the books that I rated 5 stars and it gradually goes down in rating to the 4 star books. Then bookcase 2 has the rest of the 4 star books that then transitions into 3 stars. Then bookcase 3 has my books that I read and didn’t really care for and the books that I read in middle school and the ones that I didn’t like at all.
What is the oldest book on your shelf?
Oldest as in publication date or book that I had the longest?
Publication: I’m thinking off the top of my head (I’m also not counting the books that I haven’t read), The Vampire Diaries which I think came out in the early 90s.
Book I had the longest: It’s between The Hunger Games, Sarah Dessen’s books, or The Vampire Diaries. I’m trying to think back to middle school because that’s when I started to buy books, but I was also reading from the library and later bought some of those books in the later years, so I’m taking a wild guess.
What is the newest book on your shelf?
I recently bought some books back in July that you can check out the full list on my July Wrap-Up/Haul, but basically I bought a bunch of cheap reverse harem books to see if they were good.
What is the longest book on your bookshelf?
I believe it’s the 10th anniversary Twilight book with the reimagined book or one of Cassandra Clare’s books. Ok, apparently (according to Goodreads) it’s apparently Beginnings by JLA that has both Obsidian and Onyx in it.
What is the shortest book on your shelf?
I’m wanting to say Omega Secrets by A.C. Wilds because it’s like 70 pages.
What is the most predominant genre on your bookshelves?
I’m willing to put money on it and say that it’s contemporary with fantasy as a close 2nd.
Have you done a bookshelf tour?
Use a random number generator and talk about the book that corresponds with that number.
8: Save the Date by Morgan Matson. This is Morgan’s latest book that came out a couple of years ago that follows Charlie and her family as her sister gets married. It was supposed to be the hurrah for the Grant family before Charlie goes off to college with everyone under the same roof for one weekend, but everything that could possible go wrong does in the events leading up to the wedding.
Do you have fan merch or decorations on your bookshelves?
Of course! I have a bunch of stuff from different book boxes, so I have things items from bookmarks to mugs to prints sitting on my shelves! My bookcases have also became that place where I put random things like mail and such… basically it’s organized chaos.
Show us your bookshelves!
Ok, my shelves have changed a bit since this photo because I had to try and fit more books on there, but for the most part the books are in the same area just rearranged to squeeze a few more books on there!
If you’d like to do either (or both) of these tags, consider yourself tagged! Just link me in the post so I can see it!
A huge thanks to Danni and Ellie for tagging me!
Happy reading until next time,
