This is Welcome wondrous Wednesday, a weekly feature where I showcase covers fitting a certain theme or aspect.
This week my theme is stars. It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that I love stars and the universe and basically everything involving night. Minus storms, I don’t like storms. For this week’s post I wanted to showcase three amazing covers that all feature stars in them. All three of them are breathtakingly gorgeous.
Written In The Stars by Aisha Saeed
True story, when I first discovered this cover, I almost died. Okay, so I exaggerate, a little. Nonetheless, this cover is completely gorgeous. I love the sky, the framing, the colors, the simplicity. I really love how the frame is two different colors, it brings the cover together nicely. The deep purple tones are so gorgeous. The girl seems to be looking for guidance that’s “written in the stars” and I just love it.
Rules For Stealing Stars by Corey Ann Haydu
This is a MG cover and I adore it. The girl with the star reminds me of the Stargirl cover by Jerry Spinelli. I love how the girl is in silhouette and holding a star. I love the sky, the colors are all blended together so well. I love how the girl is framed between the title, author’s name and what looks like weeds of some type. 🙂 This cover would have definitely got my attention in middle school. I like how there’s a variety of fonts and “Stars” is actually made up of stars. ❤
A Thousand Nights by L.K. Johnston
When I first saw this cover, I thought about the cover for Written In the Stars. They share the same color theme from the deep blue to the gold lettering and even the font style is the same. That’s definitely not a complaint because I just want to buy both of these books and display them next to each other. 🙂 I love how the title really swirls around the picture and centers in on (what I assume to be) a kingdom. I love the light that revolves around the palace. They remind me of the aurora lights. This cover really displays the magical aspect of the story so well. It seems enchanted.
