Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there is a new topic & all future topics can be seen here!
This week’s Top Ten deals with book covers & titles. I think it coincides nicely with yesterday’s Monday Musings post on judging books by their covers.
Raising Stony Mayhall. I discovered this one at work one day. The cover isn’t elaborate or “beautiful,” yet something about it really struck me. The blurriness of the character I think.
Don’t Breathe a Word Another book I discovered at work. The plot was so deliciously creepy and the cover worked perfectly. I’m normally not a fan of models/real people on book covers, but this worked. So, so good.
The Sisters Brothers The second I saw the cover I immediately fell in love. Unfortunately, the book didn’t quite hold up to my expectations.
Misfortune LOOK AT THAT COVER! Awesome, right?? The book sucked. I don’t became angry at books, but that one developed such a rage within me. I hated it. Hated it.
A Fraction of the Whole One of my favorite books ever. Love, love, love. & those little blue dots are actually holes! So cool!
Darkmans Another favorite book. I don’t like the other covers for this one at all, so I’m extremely glad this was the one I stumbled upon. I know I definitely wouldn’t have given the others a second thought, which is sad since this is such an amazing novel.
Shade Despite having bought this one years ago I still haven’t read it. The cover was so pretty though that I needed to have it.
Sisters Red This one has been making the rounds lately; everyone seems to be talking about it. That cover is simply stunning.
Daisy Buchanan’s Daughter It wasn’t the cover that did it for me, it was the title. I worship and adore Gatsby with every fiber of my being.
