BOOK COVER DESIGNS THAT KNOW HOW TO PARTY! (EVEN IF THE STORY DOESN’T)

by 

The plan today was to skip this week’s booklist. I just didn’t feel the whole let’s-find-a-topic ask we had going on and so I decided, take a week off! Enjoy the break. Post something random on this Tuesday. However then I realized that since it’s my dad’s birthday, why not use that and inspiration struck! Find party book cover designs! Sort of. I mean in theory, this sounds fun, but we all know that a book cover can be somewhat deception, too. So while these look kind of party-esque, not all are.

Like any of the book lists I’ve been curating here, this is going to consist of the books on my shelf. It just seems like a good idea to give myself some sort of limit. Plus using Goodreads or any other book database just feels exhausting and extensive and maybe endless, too. That all to say, let’s get started searching my shelves to find all the titles we can find to fit into this list. Let’s go.

TURN IT UP!, JEN CALONITA

ALL. THE. CONFETTI! Here for it. This is all about an a cappella group and I suspect was a release during the height of the Pitch Perfect franchise. Amazon | Goodreads

THE BRIDGE, JILL COX

I read about this when I bought it, but don’t ask me to remember what it’s about. It’s all those twinkle lights strung in trees that made me think of a “party.” I mean what party is complete without one (or several) strands? Amazon | Goodreads

10 BLIND DATES, ASHLEY ELSTON

Read this one years ago thanks to the publisher sending me a copy. It’s dang cute though the ending did make me a little salty. Nonetheless, this one gets a place for its golden confetti and that title is balloons, too. Amazon | Goodreads

LOVE FROM SCRATCH, KAITLYN HILL

A piece of traditional birthday cake is a favorite of my dad’s. So of course, I did have to find a book that features the baked confectionary. Also, what’s YOUR favorite kind of cake mix? Amazon | Goodreads

HOW IT FEELS TO FLY, KATHRYN HOLMES

Pretty sure there’s nothing “party” like about this novel. If memory serves, it’s was more of an emotional story though I haven’t read it, that’s just what my memory of the plot read is. However, the balloons made me feature this. Amazon | Goodreads

A CHARMED LIFE, JENNY B. JONES

We love a glitter moment! Amazon | Goodreads

WHEN YOU GET THE CHANCE, EMMA LORD

I mean there’s ALL the sparkles. I had to include this one even if it does stretch the theme just a tiny bit. Amazon | Goodreads

NEW YEAR’S KISS, LEE MATTHEWS

Not quite the same vibe I’m going for in comparison to the other books but it IS a NYE story with fireworks and twinkle lights so we’re rolling with it. Amazon | Goodreads

SAVE THE DATE, MORGAN MATSON

Another one I just had to add (despite it being wedding themed) because of the cake. Plus, the haphazard, crazy-ness of this book does seem like a fun time. Amazon | Goodreads

THE SECRET TO HUMMINGBIRD CAKE, CELESTE FLETCHER MCHALE

At one time I did have a copy of this book. I’m not sure if I still do because it was one I’d had on my shelf for quite a while, so I unhauled it and now I’m too lazy to look and see if it’s still in one of my have-to-get-rid-of boxes. None theless, there’s cake and I hear the story is good too. Amazon | Goodreads

THE MEET-CUTE PROJECT, RHIANNON RICHARDSON

This one doesn’t have “party” on it in the same way of others, but I do think the overall vibe is pretty party-esque. Plus I love a fun girly cover. Amazon | Goodreads

WINDFALL, JENNIFER E. SMITH

ALL THE CONFETTI (AGAIN) and a great one to close with. Plus this story is about winning the lottery. What’s cooler or more party worthy than that? Amazon | Goodreads

Have you read any of these? Would you? What types of books are they? Are my guesses right that the cover doesn’t fit the story tone? What did you write about today? What’s your favorite kind of free topic to discuss? Let’s chat, all!

  1. Hummingbird Cake was excellent but not a “party” book. Too much angst and sad topics. My book club loved it though. And one member made hummingbird cake to eat at the meeting!

    1. Totally get that. I had to add the “even if the story doesn’t” because I knew some or most of these weren’t party stories! ;) Glad you stopped in, Beckie and happy to know your book club liked that one. I do hear great things about it.

    1. SAME! It seems to really convey the whole chaos thing which I think is what the book is more about. :) As I put this together, I had to add the “even if thestory doesn’t” party title because I realized several of these weren’t about parties. ;) And thanks! It was a fun, random list to put together.

  2. I love the cover for 10 Blind Dates, having the title done out of balloons was a genius idea! My favourite kind of cake is chocolate cake, specifically my mum’s homemade chocolate cake because it is the BEST. We also have something here in the UK called “Colin The Catterpillar” which is basically a chocolate swiss roll decorated like a caterpillar, it was the cake everyone always used to bring in for birthdays at school and it’s SO GOOD.

    1. I agree! It’s just so fun and cute. Your favorites sound so good! And I would need your mom to teach me all of her baking tips. I always try homemade but usually end up needing a cake mix instead because I never get it quite right. Guess what’s important is that we keep trying. :)

  3. Nice list! It’s interesting how some book cover themes change depending on the story. Like, someone posted “wintry covers” and it was just interesting how some of them were quaint and cozy and others were menacing, depending on the story inside. Parties are the same way since some are happy and fun and others are dramatic and end badly (especially in certain genres). Anyway, great list!

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!
