We Prisma-ed some of our fave book covers and fell in love all over again

Prisma is our new favourite app. It turns silly selfies into master portraits, our cheesy sunset shots into glorious landscapes and bookstgrams into still lifes. We’re total heart eyes for it.

But what does it do to our favourite book covers?

‘We Were Liars’ by E Lockhart

We Were Liars

This was a tough one to start off with! But we’re big fans of pop art so the Roy filter was a must, It’s almost so distorted that we can’t quote tell those are people. Totally works with the mystery behind this powerful little novel.

‘The Sin Eater’s Daughter’ by Melinda Salisbury

Sin Eater

Okay, we’re totally in love with this one. ‘The Sin Eater’s Daughter’ is so BEAUTIFUL it’s hard to improve on, but the Gothic filter is totally working for this cover. The colours are completely glorious and we just want a new set of this series in these ones. Pretty please?

‘The Graces’ by Laure Eve

The Graces

The Paper Art filter may be one of our faves. Serious love for what it’s done to ‘The Graces’ (which is out in next week and you NEED in your life). We also totally want shells to look like that in real life.

‘How Not to Disappear’ by Clare Furniss


This is ON POINT. Though the Wave filter didn’t change the colours, we love what it did with the textures. This filter is practically like having your fave book covers painted on canvases. Can that be a thing, please?

‘Fangirl’ by Rainbow Rowell


The Mosaic filter totally gets ‘Fangirl’. In fact, it gives it a colour scheme of one of the special editions! This version would look amazing on our shelves and we’d like it to be real please and thank you.

‘Waiting for Callback’ by Perdita & Honor Cargill

Waiting for Callback

Watercolours are basically the best thing ever and we’re obsessed. Coloured Sky is def a filter we’re going to be using for all of our attempted arty pictures of sunsets and shots down long streets.

‘The Raven King’ by Maggie Stiefvater

Raven King

This is possibly our favourite cover of the year so we honestly weren’t expecting to be pleased with any of the filters. But then Caribbean came along and we fell in love all over again. It looks like a painting and we want so bad.

‘Red Queen’ by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen

We weren’t sure anything was going to work for ‘Red Queen’. The simplicity of this cover is what makes it so striking, but Marcus D did good. It legit looks like the crown is about to melt. So very cool.
