March 4, 2016 • Cee • Holy Mother Cover


Inspired by What She ReadsPure Imagination Blog, and Stacked.

I admit I’m a book cover snob. Who isn’t though?

Book covers are the first thing that attracts readers to a book. A good cover can draw someone is, just as a bad cover can easily draw someone away. It can essentially make or break a book. Holy, Mother Cover! is where I showcase the book covers that stand out (or make me cringe) and discuss cover changes.

(A big special thanks to Georgie at What She Reads for bestowing me this fabulous name and to Charlotte at The Simple Tales for creating the beautiful feature banner you see before you.)

If you had a magical lamp, what would you wish for? How would you use your three wishes? (You can’t wish my more wishes. That’s cheating!)

That is what the magical lamp covers make me think of—those questions and Aladdin. I don’t even have an answer to those questions for myself. :P It was difficult finding covers that had this theme. I mostly found covers of Aladdin or of people with no magical lamp in sight!

Let’s check out the magical lamp covers I did find!

TREND: Magical Lamps

The Fire Wish The Forbidden Wish • The Blind Wish

Wishing Moon • Eden’s Wish • Be A Genie in Six Easy Steps

Best magical lamp cover? It’s between The Fire Wish cover because of the way it’s set up, the old cover of The Forbidden Wish because I love smoke coming out of the lamp, and Be A Genie in Six Easy Steps because of the details on the lamp!

What about you? Which book cover do you think has the best magical lamp? Can you think of any other books with this theme?

    I like the left forbidden wish one the best

  4. I don’t think I would use all my wishes right away. I would definitely save one for a rainy day, because you never know what will happen and when you need some magic in your life.
    It might be really materialistic, but I sure would like to have more money :’) and it would be great if I could make sure I and the people I care about will never get terribly sick? The two cover versions from The forbidden wish are SO pretty.

    I’m always intrigued by a novel with a lamp on the cover! And you’ve shared some of the most beautiful ones in this post. I’m particularly loving The Fire Wish as well :D

    The Forbidden Wish covers are wonderful and mysterious. I like the other covers but these are my fave. Are all these books recent ones? Just curious about the tend :)
