This week I decided to do something different and participate in Top 5 Tuesday which is hosted by the amazing Bionic Bookworm! I love the topics this month and I’m looking forward to drafting more Top 5 Tuesday posts in the future.
This week’s theme is Top 5 Book Spines and I think it’s an amazing topic. I think that book spines are just as important as the cover because the spine is usually the first thing a reader sees when they’re browsing for books.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer: I included this series on this list because I love the illustrations on the spines of these books. The illustrations make the books standout on my shelf and I like how they’re tied to the classic fairy tales that the books are inspired by.
Charlotte Holmes books by Brittany Cavallaro: I had to include the Charlotte Holmes books on this list because I love everything about them. I like the colours of the spines, the font used for the title, and the little drawings on the bottom.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: I haven’t finished reading this series yet, but I love the spines because they show that the main character is a badass. I also like that the spines match the cover of the book and that they show how the main character evolves throughout the series.
Flavia De Luce Series by Alan Bradley: I included this series on my list because I love how colourful the spines are. I like how bright they are and how they standout on my shelf. I also love the little drawings in the centre of the spines and how they relate to the mystery inside.
Foolish Hearts, First & Then, and This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills: Emma Mills is a cover buy author for me because I love everything about the design of her hardcover books. The spines are gorgeous, colourful, and they stand out on my shelves. I also love the inlays underneath the dust jacket, and I appreciate how it matches the design on the dust jacket.
