December 24, 2015 • 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.)

Star light, star bright, you look mighty beautiful in that vast night sky!

I’ve noticed a book cover trend of the big night sky with people or structures below. I’ve picked the ones with stars on it because holy gorgeous stars! I love the way the stars twinkle and the way the covers are framed because you see how big the night sky is when you have the people and buildings at the bottom of the cover. It makes the scene even more epic, and to me, emphasizes how there’s so much out there in the sky, in the world, and in the books! It’s weirdly welcoming to me.

Let’s check out those covers!

TREND: Vast Starlit Night Sky

Station Eleven Written in the Stars • The Smell of Other People’s Houses • All We Have Is Now

The Language of Stars • Meet Me Here • The Infinite Moment of Us • Where the Moon Isn’t

When The Night Comes  The Last Place on Earth  Watch The Sky • There Will Be Lies

Best vast starlit night sky cover? They’re all sooo pretty. However, the ones that make me want to lay outside and look at the beautiful starlit sky are Station Eleven and The Language of the Stars. It just seems more realistic and beautiful.

What about you? Which book cover do you think has the best vast starlit night sky? Can you think of any other books with this theme?

  1. All of these are so gorgeous ahhhhhh!
    I’d say that Station Eleven and The Smell of Other People’s Houses are probably my favorites though :)


    I love covers with stars so much, I have to force myself to ignore them and read the synopsis to very seriously decide if it’s a book I truly want to read. Otherwise I would just hard them all for their starry nights. Heh.

  3. This is one of those cover trends that I can whole heartedly get behind. SPACE!

  4. Those book covers look beautiful! I definitely love looking at “The Last Place On Earth” and “Where The Moon Isn’t” the most. :)

    I have noticed this trend lately and I love it! It gives me the feels that there’s something more to the story, that we are all pieces of a story. My favorite are The Infinite Moment of Us and Meet Me Here!

    I’m a sucker for a starry night sky cover. I’ve always loved stars and the night sky and I can’t resist checking out a book that features either one on the cover!

  9. I love all the starry skies! It is so hard to pick a favorite! I am going to have to choose The Last Place on Earth. It makes me want to go camping!
