Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Lainey. You basically get a new topic every Wednesday, and you list your Top 5 books related to that topic. Head over to the Goodreads group, and add your name to the list of Wednesday-ers if you’re interested in participating!
Today’s topic is “Top Five Title Fonts.” I’m going to take this opportunity to showcase wonderful typography of books I may or may not have read. I’m a sucker for beautiful typography- and if a book is great typography, the chances are sky-high that I will buy it impulsively and then probably hate myself for it.
5. Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour
I have not read this, but that cover really makes me want to get on it asap.
4. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before #1) by Jenny Han
3. Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma
That’s some fabulous font-choosing. Kudos to whoever designed the cover.
2. The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell (UK version)
This is one of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen. The only reason it isn’t number one is because the font – on its own – wouldn’t be #1. But if we were rating the cover as a whole, this would take the cake.
1. The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle
I hate including this book in these posts. I hate it, because this book was absolutely awful- perhaps one of the worst books I have ever had the misfortune of reading. But that fucking cover. It’s BEAUTIFUL. Especially the font- the font is everything.
