Top Ten Tuesday (28)


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s topic:
Top Ten Favorite Book Covers of Books I’ve Read

I don't think the topic was specific to this year, so I'm not sticking with this year alone or else I would've never had a full list. Ha. And this doesn’t necessarily mean I enjoyed the book if it's on the list. There have been some seriously hot covers, but disappointing reads. I did try to make sure I picked covers of books I loved though.

The Wicked Lovely Series was full of gorgeous covers actually. I liked pretty much all of them. But the Darkest Mercy cover is my favorite of the bunch. The coloring is amazing. I want this cover as a poster on my wall.

I liked the Days of Blood & Starlight cover better than the first installment because of the pop of red. It also just seemed like an overall cleaner cover than the other. Of course, I still loved the Daughter of
Smoke & Bone cover, but not as much as I did this one.

Oh Distant Waves, I loved your cover, but didn't really enjoy the content. Damn cover tease.

I haven't liked the other covers in the set much, but Wither had me immediately looking forward to the book when it first came out. Even though the pretty dresses can get cliche at times, I still adore them anyway.

I like the Ashes paperback cover better than the hardback cover which is unusual. I tend to like the original images better if they do a redesign. But this yellow pops and I loved the way they did the font.

The Radleys is just really a different cover in my opinion. Bats? Totally cool. I looked at this and immediately wanted it.

There's something peaceful about looking at this cover. Bright. Especially since you can see from above that a majority of my cover love seems to fall into darker covers with just pops of colors. But I really like New Girl's cover. A lot of the underwater-themed covers are pretty to me. I just can't add them to this list because I haven't read many. Ha.

And that's all I have for now. Well, I'm sure I *could've* showed off some more I really loved covers for...but I can't take all day to create a post. Ack. :P Hahaha... I know it's not a full ten, but it's close enough. These are probably as close to my top-fave covers of the moment in the recent few years at least. They always change though. :) Thanks for dropping by!

What's your Top Ten?



  1. I totally agree about the Days of Blood & Starlight cover - I haven't read either of the books in that series, but the cover of the second one looks really polished in a way that the first one doesn't quite match. They're still both beautiful though. ;)

    My Top Ten

    1. I adore the books and can't wait until the next comes out! If you're interested, you should read them. :D I'm looking forward to seeing what the next cover will look like!

      Thanks for stopping by!


  2. Many greats covers:) Love your list:)

  3. The Wicked Lovely covers are GORGEOUS! They would have made it onto my list too, but i haven't read them. :)

    1. I love them so much! The books too, of course, and I always recommend them to friends and bookish people--especially if you like fairies, that sort of thing. Usually though it seems most people love them or hate them. Haha.

      Thanks for stopping by! :)
