Top 5 Wednesday 7 | Book Covers You'd Live In




Hello one Wednesday more! I am probably flying to Paris as you read this (or at least as this is posted), which is SO exciting! I am going to be there for six days with my sister :) We'll surely be doing a lot of touristic things, but I also plan to do some book-related stuff (aka book buying 😎). I'll keep you guys updated via Twitter

Anyway, let's get to the bookish stuff. Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads meme created by Lainy and now hosted by Sam in which we are given a topic every Wednesday for us to write out top 5 of :) This week's topic is:

Book covers you'd live in

Passenger - Alexandra Bracken

This cover is just too beautiful not to include it in this list! I'd love to live in that mini city inside the glass bottle that travels everywhere! I have not read Passenger, but I've heard it is about a girl who discovers that her bloodline (and thus herself) can travel through time. Apparently this book also follows the story of a boy, and both their lives intertwine somehow. As you can see, I don't really know much about this book, but I've been wanting to read it for a while now - and I am not gonna lie, the cover had a lot to do with me wanting to read it because I didn't even know what the book was about before writing this post! 


The Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Oh, Carlos Ruiz Zafón! I will not get tired of saying he is one of my all-time favourite authors. I read The Shadow of the Wind a long time ago, and I absolutely loved it. It is a historical fiction novel set in Barcelona in 1945 - just in the aftermath of the Spanish civil war, and it follows a boy named Daniel who is the son of an antiquarian book dealer. Daniel is therefore a huge fan of reading, and he particularly loves this book by Julian Carax called The Shadow of the Wind, but discovers something weird is going on with this author and his book. Honestly, I read it so long ago I didn't even remember what exactly it was about, but it is one of my favourite books, so I got a new copy just yesterday as the fourth and last book in the series was published last October. My plan is to read them all again in preparation, so I will be reading it pretty soon! 

I'd love to be inside this book cover because it reminds me of the great time I had reading it, and I love the time it represents and the story it contains. Also, I chose the Spanish edition of the book because I think it is pretty poetic how the boy and the father are the only two people represented in the picture, and their clothing pretty accurately represent Spain's past. I just love it :)

A Thousand Pieces of You -  Claudia Gray


This cover is just freaking beautiful! I love the design, how colourful it is, and the fact that it represents part of the story in it - because this book is all about dimension travelling. Wouldn't you want to live in a book cover that pictures two different places in one?! It's awesome! A Thousand Pieces of You is a fantasy YA about a girl named Marguerite whose parents, two renown scientists, invent a small machine that allows people to travel to different versions of the world. One day, her father is murdered by one of his trusted assistants, who escapes to a different dimension. I wrote a full review of this book, which you can find here :)

The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman


I love this book cover since I was in middle school, which is when I read this wonderful fantasy book by Neil Gaiman. I even drew a graphite copy of it which got printed in the school's magazine! It is about a boy whose parents were murdered by The Man Jack when he was just a baby, so the good people of the graveyard took him in as one of their own. I'd love to be in The Graveyard Book's cover because I love the story behind it, and would really like to talk to the ghosts living in that graveyard :)

Wintersong - S. Jae-Jones

Wintersong is another book I have not read and don't know what it is about but it's still in my TBR just because of its absolutely beautiful cover. I guess this cover is not exactly a nice place to be - inside a snowball with a white rose? But it's just so beautiful! I'd love to be... around it? 😁 All I know is it is a historical fiction, YA, and I've read a lot of not-so-good reviews on it, so I guess it will stay in my TBR for quite some time until/if I decide to pick it up.


And that is my T5W for this week! Would love to know what you guys are talking about in your T5W posts, so you can definitely leave me a link to yours down below for me to check out :)


Happy reading!

  1. "The Shadow of the Wind" has such a stunning cover... it feels like it might be a bit dangerous to live in though!

    1. It does, doesn't it? It's right after the Spanish civil war, so I guess it must be pretty dangerous still! I love it nonetheless :)

  2. These are such wonderful picks. I especially love the cover of Passenger, that'd be an awesome one to live in. Awesome post! I just stumbled upon your blog, and I'm greatly enjoying its content.

    I'm a teen who's new to blogging and book reviewing, and I was wondering if you had any tips for newbie bloggers and book reviewers.

    If you have the time, please check out my blog @breenysbooks. I'd love any feedback. Have a wonderful day.
