Top 5 Wednesday – May 3rd, 2017


Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at Gingerreadslainey and is now hosted by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes. Every week, book reviewers all over the world are given a bookish topic and respond with their top 5 books (or elements of books) that relate to that topic. Click here for the Goodreads group if you would like to learn more about Top 5 Wednesday and join in!

This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is your top five favorite science fiction and fantasy cover art. This topic is pretty similar to my Top 10 Tuesday topic yesterday, but for this list, I did not reuse any of the covers from the other. So this will be a rather short and sweet post today. Here are some of my favorite SFF covers! 🙂

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden


The Evaporation of Sofi Snow by Mary Weber


Spellslinger by Sebastian de Castell


Tyrant’s Throne by Sebastian de Castell


A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab


Which SFF books have some of your favorite cover designs? Let me know in the comments!

  1. You have a great taste in book covers! My favourites among the ones you listed are Spellslinger (I love the playing card format and the contrast between the reds, whites and blacks) and The Evaporation of Sofi Snow (the stunning beehive pattern).


  2. The Greatcoats series by Sebastian de Castell has such beautiful covers! And also Spellslinger is beautiful as well, apparently the covers of de Castell’s books are simply great. 😉 Also YESS to the Shades of Magic series, those covers are simply gorgeous as well.


  3. The UK edition of Strange the Dreamer for sure. Also, Six of Crows/Crooked Kingdom are gorgeous. The UK edition of the Mistborn trilogy and the covers for A Court of Thorns and Roses/Fury/Ruin are also striking/nice. Not much for Sci-Fi but I like the look of Illuminae.
