I love fonts. You can say I’m obsessed with collecting them all. It’s no secret to those who know me. You’re Just My Type is a new feature where I showcase the fonts I absolutely adore and use. And hopefully, you will love the fonts I pick. Add all of them to your font collection! Let it grow!
Can you guess the reason why this cover is here?
You: Is this—
You: Are you really—
Me: Yes. IT’S HAPPENING. Similar and free alternatives to the Wild Awake title font! ALKSJFASJIUWDJSADS. Are you excited as I am?
Over the weekend, I decided that I really needed to do a font post where I search for similar looking fonts of book titles. Rachelia @ Bookish Comforts (and a few others) gave me some books and I picked Wild Awake because the title font is something that would be fairly easy for me to search for. Wild Awake utilizes a brush-esque font, so I hunkered down and scoured through font sites for similar looking brush script ones. And success, people!
If there are any covers with gorgeous title fonts you’d like to see me attempt to search for, tell me in this month’s Do Me A Favor. I am open to suggestions.
Serial Sue is the EXACT font that’s used in Wild Awake. THE EXACT ONE. JUST LOOK. When I found it, I proceeded to shriek in joy. Who knew my font sleuthing skills were legit? Not I! This surprise and excitement is the best feeling in the world. I will get my official font sleuth badge soon. I can feeeeeel it.
Serial Sue is such an odd name because it makes me think of serial killers. D: (Yes, because of the “serial” in it.) However, that’s not the feeling you get with this font. The brush strokes paint a totally different story.
(This font is only a trial, so only the alphabets work. You have to buy the premium one to get all the benefits of the font like numbers and symbols.)

Devonshire is a similar brush font to Serial Sue (from the way some of the letters are shaped), but it has a heavier weight to it and isn’t quite cursive. This reminds me of my handwriting whenever I wrote in a thick pen when I was in middle school. It somehow turns into that.

Look how nice and clean Olivier is! I love the roundness of letters and how it flows beautifully. No sense of hesitation in the way the letters is shaped. When I read words in this font, my eyes easily slide through it. It just works. I’m pretty sure I make no sense and I’m embarrassing myself for describing how much I adore this font weirdly, but y’know, fonts always leave me in awe.
Which font is your favorite? Do you like the original? What did you think of this post? Is this type of font post something you’d like to see more of?
