Let's get into it.
Waiting by Ha Jin
I really like the simplicity of this cover with just the red background and the bottom of a long, black braid. Even though it's simple, it already speaks to it being about China during the Cultural Revolution, when a single black braid was the hairstyle for women.
Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi
I just like the feeling of this cover. I've always enjoyed the illustration style of this graphic novel, and I like seeing little Marjane on the cover.
Dracula by Bram Stoker
This book is not the best for reflecting the story, but I just think it's so pretty. It almost looks like velvet to me, so that is why it's on this list.
Vicious by V.E. Schwab
I think that this cover is so cool looking, but it also has a lot from the book on it. You've got Victor looking out over the city from his balcony, his hand still bloody from crushing a glass. And he's staring out, knowing that Eli is out there somewhere.
This cover makes me wish the book were a graphic novel.
The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo
This is easily one of the most beautiful books in my library. I know that there are quite a few other colours on it, but the spine and back are entirely red, so I'm counting it.
I haven't read this book yet, so I can't say how the cover reflects the book. It's just so gorgeous that it gets the top spot on my list.
So, those are my top 5 red covers. What books am I missing? Share your favorite red covers with me in the comments below!
