Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! For this week, I tried to pick the books I own with colourful covers–but realised thanks to Instagram that I actually have more of an appreciation for series with colourful spines. (Think about how they’re displayed on the shelf; we see them more, no?)
1. The To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series by Jenny Han
These books are so photogenic anyway, but there’s something perfect about how well the colours of the spine line up with the signature colour palette of the movies.
2. The Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld
You’d never know from the pretty pastel spines how disturbing the covers are…
3. The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot
This series has always made the most delightful rainbow on my shelves–as if I needed any further reason to adore it.
4. The Anna/Lola/Isla series by Stephanie Perkins
These might be some of my favourite covers of all time. They’re just so pretty.
5. The 20th anniversary editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
I know these have colourful edges, not spines, but LOOK AT THE EDGES AND THE HOUSE SCARVES THEY’RE SPRAYED IN. LOOK AT THE MAGNIFICENCE.
Do you like your covers bright and colourful, or more serious?
