Top 5 Tuesday | Book Spines


Hey Guys! It’s time for Top 5 Tuesday! This week’s topic is about book spines. Book spines don’t get as much credit as book covers so this week I will be showing you a few of my favorite book spines from my own book collection. I’m not that great at taking pictures so instead of taking individual pictures I took one picture with all of the books I picked.

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Shanah @BionicBookWorm. Each week we respond to that week’s topic and link back to her page. Go check out her page to join in! 




I picked Lady Midnight because I really like the black and white color. I want to get this whole series in this edition. If I’m not mistaken she has also done the rest of the Shadowhunter this way as well and I would love to have them all. I also like this spine because there’s a fight scene going on which makes it look like a cover itself.

I haven’t actually read Ring and Crown yet, but I like the spine because of the pretty red color. I like how it mixes white the white and black colors. It looks like it’s marbled and I think it’s really cool.

I like the font on the spine for Turtles All the Way Down. It looks like someone just wrote it on there with a marker, but it still looks official. I also like how it’s just really simple, nothing fancy, just a plain background with black and orange writing.

Blue and green are my favorite colors and that’s why I like the spine for An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. I like how the almost neon green is a stark contrast to the dark blue. I also like the fat of the letters. 

To be honest, I only chose The Heretic’s Daughter because it’s kind of creepy. Like you couldn’t have moved her face over just a little bit more so I would have one creepy eye staring at me from my bookshelf. I’d also like to add that I hadn’t noticed it until my mom pointed it out to me the other day and now this book is on a different shelf.

    Love your choices! There’s one book on my list that represents the Green brothers’ most recent books’ cover aesthetic ^_^ And that spine for The Heretic’s Daughter is indeed creepy. Imagine walking down a badly lit library aisle and finding yourself eye to eye with it…Yikes!
