Are there any book covers you just love the texture of?
I love books whose covers have embossing and similar features. As I’m reading, my fingers press lightly into the structure of it, mentally cataloging the hills and valleys as I lose myself within the world on its pages.
I read quite a bit on my Kindle and listen via Audible almost as much, but there are some books you must have a physical copy of to fully appreciate its semblance and impression.
The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo is one such book for me. I haven’t read all of the stories within it, I’m taking my time to savor and reflect upon each one individually. However, I marvel at the cleverness of the writing and the elements of well-known classic fairytales woven into something else altogether wicked and otherworldly. The ambiance it creates makes it the perfect Fall read to curl up with, coffee at my side while tucked under a blanket.
Please share your favorite covers in the comments, what qualities do you love the most about it?
