Top 5 Wednesday| BOOK PORN!

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog group that comes together to discuss that week's topic. The idea was first curated by the wonderful Lainey at GingerReadLainey and is now run by Samantha over on ThoughtsonTomes. 

If you wish to participate, either on your Blog or Booktube channel then, please, join the group on Goodreads for all the relevant topics.

Okay, this week isn't what you think it is. Rather than the smut, that I'm sure you're thinking about, I'm talking about all the amazing covers that have come out since I last wrote a post like this. 

All this 'don't judge a book by its cover' malarky is a little bit ridiculous. We all know we do it, and so do the art departments in publishing houses - its why there are so many good ones!

1. Vicious/Vengeful (Villans)
V.E. Schwab


Titan Books have stepped up their Schwab cover designs, and the redesign for Vicious is no exception.

2. Under the Pendulum Sun
Jeanette Ng


If this doesn't read like a Gothic Fae story than this cover has lied to me. I love how it feels like it's been mirrored and intwines everything into one image. 

3.  Other Words for Smoke
Sarah Maria Griffin


I'm cheating with this cover slightly (and with the next book on the list), Other Words for Smoke doesn't come out until March 2019, however, I am in love with the cover already and with what I have read in the sampler that was handed out at YALC this year. 

4. Priory of the Orange Tree
Samantha Shannon


Another book that isn't out until early next year, and although I'm not getting an ARC - it already owns my entire being.

5. The Ninth Rain (The Winnowing Flame Trilogy #1)
Jen Williams


I need to talk about this trilogy more, just know its amazing and more people need to pick it up. There's something really modern about these covers, which fits and ties into what Williams does with her world building and blurring of the SFF genre.
