Hey guys, it is Tuesday and time for me to get back into the Top 5 Tuesday posts, I missed last weeks which I am very sad about but I was just way too busy to be able to post and actually completely forgot about it, I might just do the topic later on in the year because it was a really good one and I have loads of series that I need to finish 😀 So if you don’t already know this meme was created by Shanah over at BionicBookWorm, and each week we get a bookish topic to talk about. This weeks topic is top 5 covers of 2019. Covers are definitely what first draws me into a book, if I am at the store and I see a beautiful cover I am definitely going to go and look at it, but I also need to be interested in the synopsis to buy that book so it’s the first thing that draws me in but it needs to actually sound like something I would read. There have been some awesome covers so far this year so lets get into it;
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow
When we talk about beautiful 2019 covers this is the first one that comes to mind because it is so beautiful!!! And I am also really excited to read it. This book is about a girl named January who finds a book that ovens door to other worlds! This sounds incredibly interesting and one of my favourite things in books is getting to see these fantastical worlds so I am hoping to love this one.
Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
This is Margaret Rogerson’s second book and this cover is just as beautiful as the first one. This is one of my most anticipated books of the year and I actually have a copy of it but just haven’t gotten around to picking it up yet. This one seems to be full of magic and sorcery and if I am being honest I don’t remember the synopsis but just the fact that Margaret Rogerson wrote it means that I will read it 😀
In An Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire
This is the most recent book in the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire and it is just as amazing as the previous books. The covers of this series are also always beautiful and interesting because they are about these magical worlds so they need to seem quite whimsical and interesting to show what the books are really about 😀 This is the forth book in the series where we follow Lundy into the Goblin Market, I would recommend reading these books in order although with some of them you don’t technically have to but it just makes more sense that way 😀
Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin
This one I am a little sceptical of I actually just bought it a couple of days ago and the cover is beautiful and the synopsis does sound like something that I would read I am just really hoping that I like it. It does seem like a book that could just fall into a lot of tropes but I am hoping that it doesn’t or that if it does that it will be done well. This book is about witches and witch hunters and are two main characters are one of each and they are made to get married, I don’t really know the circumstances of why they have to get married but I am sure we will find out.
Into the Crooked Place by Alexandra Christo
I loved Alexandra Christo’s debut from last year To Kill A Kingdom and that was what instantly made me interested in reading this book, but if I had seen this book in a book store I definitely would have been interested. Once again I don’t remember much from the synopsis of this one, but it was really just the author that made me want to read it anyway, I do remember that it was full of magic and criminals and that’s all I need to know.
Thank you for reading!
