Random Quote of the Day: “Never stand begging for that which you have the power to earn.” – Miguel de Cervantes

Hello sunshines! 🔆 Captivating Covers is a meme created by me — @JBelkBooks. Every week or so, I share a cover of a novel that I find to be Captivating. It doesn’t have to be one you’ve read, just one that you enjoy! You can add your own twist to it, but I like to include the book synopsis & book details. So, I created this meme to share my findings with you all! 📚

Title: Eliza and Her Monsters

Author: Francesca Zappia

Genre: Young-Adult, Contemporary

Published: July 13th, 2017

I love, love, love how there’s so much going on on this cover — there’s a female figure on the front, yes, but she has hands covered in paint!! As a fellow painter, this excited me because we don’t see many MC’s that have that artistic/creative ability. Also, the clash between realism & fictional aspects on the cover really caught my attention.

Title: Bad Romance

Author: Heather Demetrios

Genre: Young-Adult, Contemporary

Published: June 13th, 2017

Guys I’m telling you, every time I look at this cover I am continuously in awe. The cover reflects the synopsis of the novel finely and I enjoy how almost…”raw” it looks? It’s so simple yet very complex in meaning and I love that about this cover. I’ve personally never seen a cover like so, so that’s also a plus! 🌱🌾

Title(s): Pride and Prejudice, Emma, & Sense and Sensibility

Author: Jane Austen

Genre: Classic, Fiction

Okay, if you don’t think these covers are beautiful then we can’t be friends and you are crazy I happily except your opinion. I love anything watercolor, and these are so simple yet very complex in the sense that they aren’t your average graphics. Watercolor is a troublesome medium (at least for myself), so I highly respect the illustrator of these classics!

Title: We Are Okay

Author: Nina Lacour

Genre: Young-Adult, Contemporary, LGBTQ+

Published: February 14th, 2017

Another 2017 Diverse read that should definitely be on your TBR! I had the chance to hear Lacour talk about this novel in person AND see the ARC, and this novel sounds amazing! The cover has almost a comic-feel to it, but I love the artsy representation and the contrasting pink-ish and blue colors. If you are looking for a way to treat yourself this Valentines Day, be sure to check this one out! ❤

Random Fact of the Day: It takes 17 muscles to smile, 43 to frown. (so, smile more!!)

Hello sunshines! 🔆 It’s been SO long since I’ve shared a Captivating Cover! I think it’s partially because of all the giveaway/promo posts I’ve been doing. But besides that, today I am here to share another cover in our book community that is just a pure beauty. As always, feel free to recommend some in the comments! (:

Captivating Covers is a meme created by me — @JBelkBooks. I don’t know if it’s just me, but sometimes I buy books just because of the cover. So, I created this meme to share my findings! 📚

Once a week, you can showcase ‘captivating’ book covers that you came across! They do not have to be purchased by you and they could’ve been found anywhere — bookstores, libraries, online, etc. Have fun with this and make sure to comment a link below to your own Captivating Covers!

💭 IMAGINE THIS: A watercolor-ish cover with such a great color scheme. A cover that makes you think of something…magical? Almost like a dream. Two lifestyles coming together in one cover — urban & rural. Just to think that the cover has SO much to do with the synopsis of the book itself (my favorite type of covers)! What book am I referring to?

Title: All We Have Left

Author: Wendy Mills

Genre: Young-Adult, Contemporary, Historical Fiction

Published: August 9th, 2016

WHAT DID I TELL YOU??! I would love to buy this book just for the cover, but I actually found the book itself to be pretty intriguing! This book currently has 4.39 stars on Goodreads! And in case contemporary is a turn-off for you, it is about historical fiction, so feel free to read the synopsis below to find out if this book is for you! 😉

Check out the synopsis below for ALL WE HAVE LEFT!
