Top 5 Wednesday #13: Fonts I Like

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by GingerReadsLainey. For more information on this meme, visit the Goodreads group. This week’s topic:

Title Font on Covers

Since this post is on book covers and fonts, I went overboard and selected 7 books.

I haven’t read any of the books above but I have looked at them once or twice because of the cover design and the font. Of the lot, my favorite is Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour. I like how all the letters point to the girl in the middle and I also like how thin and fragile they look.

The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski comes in second because that font is similar to the one used for LaCour’s book though it’s a bit thicker. I also like that the girl is holding the R.

The Assassin’s Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke is third. Whenever I see this title, I’m reminded of Arabic script, which I love and wish I could read.

Next is The End Games by T. Michael Martin. The font stuck out to me because it grows into the weird tree/root creatures above it. Plus, the font is thin. I think I have a thing for thin fonts.

Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell and Wasteland by Susan Kim and Laurence Klavan are next because I like how the font matches the word.

And then there’s Thirteenth Child  by Patricia C. Wrede. I like the variety of lines and the font makes me think of times past.

If you’ve read these books, please share your thoughts on them below. Or, let me know what book covers have fonts you like.

  1. Love these choices! I particularly like the design of Mechanica, Thirteenth Child, The Winner’s Curse, and The Assassin’s Curse. I haven’t read any of these yet, but The Winner’s Curse, Mechanica and The Assassin’s Curse are on my reading list! 🙂


  2. I like all your choices, good descriptions too.
    I haven’t read any of them but I’d definitely give them a go.
    The assassins curse or the thirteenth child i think maybe look the nicest.
