10 Bookstagrams That Prove Fantasy Book Covers Are the Best on Shelves


10 Bookstagrams That Prove Fantasy Book Covers Are the Best on Shelves

Fantasy Book Covers: Banner

YA fantasy, y’all. So many sub-genres, so many fantastic characters (you know our love for Evangeline will never die), so much world-building FOMO (who else wants to be a Cerulean??) From epic, multi-book arcs, to powerful and succinct standalones, we cannot get enough fantasy.

One of the best things about fantasy books, besides the battles, royal feuding, and romance galore, are the breathtaking and unique covers! And since we love admiring stellar cover art almost as much as we love reading wonderful books, we’ve put together a lil list of some epic fantasy bookstagrams. Happy scrolling, fantasy fans!

(And since you (okay, we) brought up Evangeline, DID WE MENTION THE BROKEN THRONE COVER IS OUT AND IT IS GORGEOUS? Take a look, read Victoria’s letter to fans, cry a little (or a lot), and head back here!)

Have you seen the cover for Broken Throne by @victoriaaveyard! Swipe to see the cover. I’m so obsessed with the look of this cover, I swear this series was blessed by the book gods. I’m really digging the purple, I feel it’ll look stunning next to the other books, but also make it stand out. . Broken Throne is a collection of short stories in the Red Queen universe. It’ll feature two previous novellas (glad I waited before buying those), three brand new novellas, maps, flags, bonus scenes, journal entries, and more exclusive content! . I think I’m most excited about Evangeline’s short story! She quickly became my favourite character from the series, and I loved her character arc. I can’t wait to read something solely about her (I also hope this is a teaser for a spin off novel/series featuring her, a boy can dream 😏)! . Are you excited for Broken Throne?! Thoughts on the cover?!

I recently finished Circle of Shadows and loved the magic system and idea of bonded warriors! Circle of Shadows is a thrilling new fantasy series full of magic and betrayal – from @evelyn_skye, New York Times bestselling author of the Crown’s Game series. ⠀ This was one of my most anticipated 2019 releases and I want to thank @EpicReads for sending me a copy through my partnership with @storygramtours. Thank you! ⠀ QOTD: Who are some of your favorite warrior pairs? ⠀ Mine is definitely Julian and Emma from #TheDarkArtifices. Sora and Daemon from #CircleofShadows reminded me of those two! ⠀ In Circle of Shadows love, spies, and adventure abound as Sora and Daemon unravel a complex web of magic and secrets that might tear them—and the entire kingdom—apart forever. To learn more or to purchase a copy click on the link in my bio! ⠀ Summary: ⠀ Sora can move as silently as a ghost and hurl throwing stars with lethal accuracy. Her gemina, Daemon, can win any physical fight blindfolded and with an arm tied behind his back. They are apprentice warriors of the Society of Taigas—marked by the gods to be trained in magic and the fighting arts to protect the kingdom of Kichona. ⠀ As their graduation approaches, Sora and Daemon look forward to proving themselves worthy of belonging to the elite group—but in a kingdom free of violence since the Blood Rift Rebellion many years ago, it’s been difficult to make their mark. So when Sora and Daemon encounter a strange camp of mysterious soldiers while on a standard scouting mission, they decide the only thing to do to help their kingdom is to infiltrate the group.Taking this risk will change Sora’s life forever—and lead her on a mission of deception that may fool everyone she’s ever loved. ⠀ #CircleofShadowsTour #CircleofShadowss #EvelynSkye #YAFantasy #EpicReads #storygramtours bookstagram #bookworm #booknerd #bookphotography #bibliophile #booklover #bookaddict #instareads #bookblogger #bookish #beautifulbooks #booktag #prettybooks #goodreads #bookdragon #yabooks #bookstack

✨Q: What’s your favourite flower? And do you get to grow any of them if you have a garden? . 🌹 I love so many – especially roses. I also think wisteria, daffodils, cherry blossoms and hydrangeas are beautiful! Luckily we get to have most of them in our garden 😍 (I mean, I don’t personally look after them or they’d be dead, but I get to look at them 😄) . 🥀 Today’s prompt for #finnfuryrevolution is ‘bread and roses | books & flowers’ and the stunning cover on Damsel was just screaming for a photo featuring a mass of flowers 😁 . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #damsel #bookspiral #bookpile #booksandflowers #bookphotography #bibliophile #thebookstagram #bookish #igreads #booklover #fortheloveofreading #booknerd #bookworm #homedecor #bookdragon #bookblogger #booklife #rainbow #bookaesthetic

7. This shot from @betterwithabookinmyhand is a conspiracy to capture our hearts

📚 Series vs. standalone || #creativebookstagram 📘 . 😅 Well I have this sickness, you see. It’s where I pick up lovelies like A Conspiracy of Stars, and I think, thar she blows! 😍 A beautiful standalone that don’t need no sequels to surpass her! 💃 And then I look into Goodreads, and! …it’s a gorgeous series. 🤦‍♀️ . 🦋 Yes I will get over-invested in these characters and follow them to further books. You win! 😂 . 💙 Ha, but no, I love some sweet standalones, but they tend to be contemporaries, because fantasy standalones are mythical unicorns. 🦄 . ❓Are you addicted to series or do you seek out more standalones? 🤓📚 • • • #bookrainbow #bookgram #booknerd #yalove #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookworm #bookish #booksofinstagram #booklove #bookaholic #yagram #yafantasy #yareads #yalove #yalova #yalovin #bookishrainbow #booknerdigans #rainbowspines #prettyspines #bookspines #bookcovers #bookaesthetic #bookchevron #rainbowchevron #aconspiracyofstars
