One of my favourite feelings in the world
arguably the universe is when see a book… and all you can think is …. well…. don’t really think you just feel, getting away from the point …. that the book you have set your sights on……… is simply the most beautiful thing you have ever seen, more beautiful than a world only illuminated by stars and moonlight, more beautiful than a tiny baby flower growing into the most extravagant of sunflowers…..
And rationally the first thought to enter your mind while you are within this staring-at-that-book-like-there’s-nothing-else-in-the-world
I mean what more do you need really haze is……. I MUST HAVE YOU!
So, naturally I have a few books that I bought first; because the cover stole my attention from afar
like the little thief it is….. what’s next gonna steal my heart???? My soul????Hmmmmm? *sobs ’cause I know it will* and second; because I was interested in the story… based on the synopsis on the back…. I don’t really care much for the quotations on the back that are all “WOW! BEST BOOK YOU’LL EVER READ! PICK IT UP NOW!” Like no thank you I’ll decide that for myself…. I have read some pretty good books in my time… you can’t boost your way to the top without being read, though you may try you sneaky, sneaky minx. (I’ve watched too much Ice Age, oh no). Although I do read them occasionally, especially if the quote is written by an author I trust….
Here are five books that I have currently on my shelf that to me… are gorgeous or bring forth all the happiness, and make me cry a little. Just a little.
1) Strange the Dreamer – Laini Taylor
I think it’s the blue……
It’s a really blue…. a real nice blue mind you.
Every time I think “Pretty book” I automatically go to this blue beauty. CAN WE PRAISE HOW GOOD A COLOUR COMBINATION BLUE AND GOLD IS?!?!?!
I have yet to read it…. but I have the second book in this series(?) in my sights… it looks as though it will be orange… I wonder if it will match the vibrancy of this blue… if so…. I will be one happy bean. I will be the happiest of beans.
Plus, look at that moth. It is a moth, right? It looks like a moth…. I don’t like moths. They scare me… they just fly around and come in my room at night and scare the life out of me, because there’s a dark spot on the wall and oH MY GOD IT’S A SPIDER! But it’s not…. it’s just a less threatening, twice as scary BEAST THAT CAN FLY!
Moths are scawy….
2) Long May She Reign – Rhiannon Thomas
*sigh* I have actually read this one…..
considering all my post seem to just be me crying about the books I haven’t read and it was pretty good. I wouldn’t say it was my favourite books but I enjoyed it, because SCIENCE. Which brings us back to the cover…
So very sciency and niiiiiiiice. I thought it was pretty unique…. there’s a castle…. in a flask…. which isn’t realistically possible unless it’s a very small castle
or you have a ginormous flask… which I doubt…. PLEASE DON’T HURT ME…
The colours too though… blue and purpley… beautiful…. also I find that the cover is very relevant to the book (story wise)…. I am very pleased…. both by this fact and to have it on board my shelf….. ‘
cause now my shelves are pirate ships…. NO ONE TOUCHES MY LOOT!
3) The Waking Land – Callie Bates
THE LEAVES! If you didn’t know already… I really like nature… more specifically plants… super specifically trees…. and LEAVES….. DON’T GET ME STARTED ON HOW MUCH I FRIGGIN’ LOVE LEAVES!! Such colours! Such Crunch! Such Happy!
Also there are extra leaves?!? With no colour?!?! That are more or less invisible unless you tilt it like a see-saw in the light?!?! ME LIKEY! SECRET LEEEEAAAVES FORRR MEEEEEEE!
Also the sequel comes out this year and ….. it is also beautiful… also…… I will be purchasing it at the first opportunity that presents it’s self….
SOOOOOOON! MY PRECIOUS! SOOOOOON!
Soooooo PREEEETTTYYY! I. Need. It. Now.
INSTEAD OF GREEN!!!!
I STILL LIKEYYYYY!
#BETTER NOT BE MY PRECIOUS LEAVES ON fIAH
3) Warcross – Marie Lu
I know what you’re thinking…
’cause I’m and extremo skilled psychic who can read your mind through a screen It doesn’t look like much.
I thought that too when I got it, I mean the title is written in a cube…. and it’s embossed, which is always fun and exciting… but the real treasure….. the real reason it’s on this list….
SO MUCH COLOUR! AAAAAAAAAAAAA! SO MUCH EXCITE!
I know…… it’s too beautiful…. I may have cried a little…..
I was surprised, okay?
Colours make me happy. 😀
Plus…. it’s a book about hacking…. within a video game….. Me double likey.
5) An Enchantment of Ravens – Margaret Rogerson
I mean beside the fact that the artwork is gorgeous….. it isn’t the reason it’s on the list…. oh no….. it would need something drastically beautiful to make onto this list…
It’s the Ravens.
THE ONE ON THE FRONT ISN’T EVEN MY FAVOURITE!
LOOK AT HIM!!
HE’S SO PERFECT!
WHY IS HE ON THE BUTT OF THE BOOK?!?!
HE SHOULD BE FRONT AND CENTRE!
HE’S TOO BEAUTIFUL TO HIDE!
Are there actually ravens and birbs in this book though? I haven’t read it….. I want there to be birbs….. which admittedly is why I’m avoiding it….
Another post… about books… that I haven’t read…. although I’ve read one of them….. this is new.
Usually I just cry…. but I feel some accomplishment…. I read a book… which I DO EVERY DAY IT’S JUST NOT THE ONES ON MY SHELF!
Wattpad can be very distracting… There are some good writers on there… Tooooo good… *suspicious*
Which book is the most beautiful on your shelves at the moment? (Mine literally changes all the time, if you ask me tomorrow… this list will be different)
Till next time! 😀
Good Night! Or Morning ❤
