Top 5 Book Spines

Hello there. It's time for another Top 5 Wednesday (T5W) post and this week's topic is Top 5 Book Spines. I haven't put the books in the right order for the picture, I hope you can forgive me and still know which book title belongs to which spine.

5. Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
I really love the colors for this book and the font is beautiful. It just looks really lovely on my shelf and I'm in love with the whole design.

4. Paper Towns by John Green
The little details like the pin and the cloud that are included in this book spine made me choose this for fourth place. Also the font matches the design perfectly and I love the somewhat haphazardly designed spine.

3. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
I love this cover of Eleanor & Park and the spine is one of the best bits of the book design. I think the color arrangements are beautiful, and again the font is amazing and perfect for the book. The door also adds some special effect to the spine, I always enjoy when there is not only the book title displayed on the spine.

2. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
When I first read the topic for this T5W, I immediatly thought of this spine. I love how different it is from the book cover and the simple design and the beautiful pastel colors of the spine made me think this was going to be number one easily. But even though it turned out I like one other spine even more than this, I still think this is an amazing design.

1. Paper Swans by Jessica Thompson
I haven't read this book yet and bought it solely for it's beauty. Not only the cover is super pretty, but the spine too. Look at that absolutely cool font they used and then there's the paper swan at the bottom and I just love it so much. If this book turns out to be not as good as the cover promises, I'm going to be super disappointed. I love the green-yellowish colors of the whole thing and it is just so beautiful.

So these are my Top 5 Book Spines. Let me know if you agree with my choices and sorry these are all contemporaries but I couldn't find any books from other genres with outstanding spines.
