Pretty Books: The Theory of Everything

Pretty-BooksPretty Books is a randomly occuring feature where I show you books that are especially pretty, both on the outside and the inside.


The Theory of Everything was one of my favorite contemporaries last year. A SHAMAN PANDA and the most adorable characters put into a wonderful story by Kari Luna. A story that’s filled with fun ‘How to…’ lists and awesome playlists.

“One part Libba Bray’s Going Bovine, two parts String Theory, and three parts love story equals a whimsical novel that will change the way you think about the world.”


I LOVE this cover! The cutest pandas ever! (I would give that one a long lasting hug instead of that kiss on the nose! :D) A girl in a a cute dress! The colors! The font! This cover perfectly represents the story.


The actual book is a pretty green color. Again the lovely font and a cute little tree. And you can’t overlook that bold black spine with the pink part on the top.


Left: I love the striped black and white background and that the summary comes as a list just like the ones Sophie Sophia always writes.
Right: See those little drawings under the title? They are all over the book and these cute little icons fit the story so well.


Some examples of those icons = cute chapter headings. And look how pretty these page numbers look like.
