Top Ten Tuesday: Books With Cool Fonts on the Cover

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Books with [___] On the Cover. As I brainstormed what to focus on for this week, a lot of my initial ideas have already been done with past prompts. I started looking through pretty book covers I keep track of on a Goodreads shelf and I realized how many have such cool fonts! Here are ten I like.

Grishaverse books by Leigh Bardugo

At this point, this font is the Grishaverse. Nobody else can use it.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

I might not be a huge fan of this series, but that font choice is perfect. It just screams “magical carnival.”

Warcross by Marie Lu

The font, the rainbow colors, the way it’s 3D on the cover, all so freaking cool.

Renegades Trilogy by Marissa Meyer

The font choice for this superhero trilogy is perfect.

An Ember in the Ashes series by Sabaa Tahir

I love when fonts have subtle details added to them. Like swords or daggers or other things. Plus, this font has such a sharp point that it fits so well with the rest of the cover design.

Storm Siren trilogy by Mary Weber

The elegant flourish of this font makes me think of storms, which is fitting.

Aurora Cycle by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

I love this font! It fits so well with the space adventure theme.

House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig

Another font that adds little details that fit with the theme of the book. It just looks so cool and works so well with the rest of the cover design.

Small Spaces by Katherine Arden

I love that the words look like they are part of the tree. It’s just the right amount of spooky to fit with the book.

Clash of Kingdoms series by Erin Summerill

I think part of the reason I put these on my TBR way back when was because that font choice is so eye-catching. The shine of the gold, the flourish and fanciness. I love.

    • I was joking. I have no idea if it’s copyrighted. I just meant that if anybody else tried to use the font for their book it wouldn’t work because it would just been seen as copying!


  1. I love a good font! Fonts can really make or break a cover, the nicest art will like terrible with a bad font. I love the font on The Winner’s Curse where it looks like she’s gripping the R, I think it works really well but I don’t like the size of the text on The Other Side Of The Sky, I think it distracts from the art.
