Hey there, hope you’re all good & had a stress free weekend.
Today is the start of something i’m calling Monday Mix, on my blog, where every Monday i’m going to talk about some of my favourite things – that aren’t books! From TV Shows and music to apps and makeup.
I’ve Seen this tag floating around the blog-sphere, I have no idea who started it though, so credit to the original maker. As I was going to do a ‘favourites’ post anyway, this tag is the perfect way to sum everything up.
First question is..
It’s nearing the end of December you know what that means, time to join in and write about my favourite books of the year. Granted this year I haven’t read as much as I have the past couple of years (mainly because I’m in my third year of university, so my life is basically just work) but I have still managed to read some pretty great books this year. Having a top 16 for 2016 is a bit much in terms of what I have read this year, so I’m going to do a top 6 instead. This is in kind of an order..I guess
Okay My Top 6 of 2016 are:
Good morning, hope you’re all good.
Decided to do this random post today (Shelf Candy Saturday), which is where you talk about your favourite book covers. I have no idea who originally created this (apologies).
I just spent about 15 mins standing in front of my book shelves pondering, TOO MANY PRETTY BOOKS. I’m only going to talk about one this week and this one is just stunning. I’ve chosen And I Darken by Kiersten White.
This is the hardback editon/design. I think its ridiculously pretty, and aesthetically pleasing. For starters, how badass is that sword? its so striking, i can’t stop looking at it. The fact as well that the title text overlays the image in such a sleek way, it blends in perfectly.
Now how about those petals! I love the layering of these, specially with the way they look like they are floating/falling.
I’ve just seen the cover for the next book in the series Now I Rise
and I think it’s just as beautiful?! (I think I like the first one that tiny bit more though).
I think the designer (Alison Impey) did such a great job, she also designed The Serpent King, All The Bright Places, the Daughter Of Smoke and bone (US covers) and many more stunning covers, so it’s so no surprise why I love these so much.
I hope to read And I Darken soon.
Have any of you guys read this book yet? what did you think of it?
Whats your opinion on these covers?/what are your favourite covers?
