Top 5 Wednesday: Book Cover Fonts

 Yes, today will be another book post!
I recently joined a group on Goodreads called Top 5 Wednesday. 
 It is a group that started a couple of years ago. The moderator, Lainey, posts a topic each Wednesday that you are then to use for your Top 5 post or video. 
It looks like a lot of fun so I am excited to do my first post!

Today's topic is 5 favorite Book Cover Fonts. 
This was a little hard for me to decide as there are a lot of book covers that I really like. But I narrowed it down to the books that I own that, in my opinion, have the best font. 

They are, in random order: 

Harry Potter:


 I love how the P in Potter uses the lightning bolt of Harry's scar. 
It is instantly recognizable. 

The Beautiful Creatures series:


I used the second book in the series for the picture because the first one has the dumb movie cover... but they all use this same font. It is so pretty. 
I love how the letters extend so far and almost feel like vines. 

This Dark Endeavor:

This series is a prequel re-telling of Frankenstein
I love the feel of this font. It perfectly fits the dark, slightly gothic feel of the story. 
I loved these books the last time I read them. Now that I have actually read the original Frankenstein, I need to go back and read them again to see if I still like them as much!

The Shadow and Bone series: 

These books all have a variation of this same font. I think it is beautiful, eye catching (in fact I love this whole cover!), and foreshadows the tone of the book. 

The Incarceron series: 

This one might be my favorite with all the gears. 
I mean, take a closer look. 

So cool!

Do you have any books that use a cover font that you love?

Thanks. I really love it when a book cover tells you something about the story inside with the picture and/or font.
It was really fun to look through my books to decide what I wanted to use.
