Guess That Book By The Cover

Have you ever looked at a book cover and found it so stunning that you feel you could stare at it for a thousand years? Have you felt like that about almost every book?
Well if you answered yes to either of those question then you’ve got a bit of luck on your side.
Today we’re gathered on my blog to play a very interesting bookish game that is going to test your memories(uh oh) and how much attention do you really pay to book covers(wohoo!)

HOW DOES IT WORK?

So I will basically be describing the book covers in a few sentences and you will be trying to guess which book I’m talking about! Almost all of these books are 2019 releases but a couple backlist books are present as well. You click on ‘show answer’ for the correct answer to be revealed. Here’s an example of how it would go.

Description: ‌Supernova half-naked golden boy covered with tattoos is standing behind dark buildings. There are emerald ruins in the front.

  2. It was so much fun to try and guess the books!
    But I only got two right, so umm guess I don’t spend enough time staring at book covers?
    (in my defence I haven’t read/own a lot of these books – like Aru Shah and Eliza and diff cover for One of Us is Lying)

  3. This was SUCH a fun post! I was so proud of myself for guessing so many of them! The one that tripped my up the most was Eliza and Her Monsters. I know that cover and I’ve read the book and yet I didn’t guess it! I got Priory of the Orange Tree and With the Fire on High Pretty quickly though, so to me that’s a fair trade!
