Top Ten Tuesday – I’ve Been Framed – My Favorite Book Covers that Feature Eye Glasses
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is a Book Cover Freebie (choose what kind(s) of covers you want to talk about: prettiest, most unique, most misleading, weirdest, most memorable, creepiest, ugliest, etc.).
I decided to focus on book covers that feature eyewear. I don’t know if it’s because I wear glasses myself or what, but I’m always drawn to covers with glasses. Regular glasses, sunglasses, goggles, you name it, they all grab my attention. I’ve put together a collage of some of my favorites to share with you today. If you want to know more about any of the books I’ve featured, use the links below.

Oh this is brilliant, Suzanne! I love this — and the topic is such a great take on this week’s TTT. Also — Bernadette, with those glasses? Totally got me!

How cute!! What a great idea!

What a great idea, Suzanne! It’s amazing how many covers you found. I never really paid attention to glasses on covers before😁

This is such a fun twist on this week’s topic! I really like the colours on the cover of The Bookish Life of Nina Hill, and Slay’s one I really want to check out. That edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is pretty!

You seem to have a preference for books that feature people wearing glasses or sunglasses. 🙂 I think it’s cool to figure stuff like that out.
My TTT .

I think so too. 🙂
Where’d You Go Bernadette has such a distinctive cover. I like The Bookish Life of Nina as well.

I probably never would have picked up a copy of Where’d You Go Bernadette if not for that cool cover.
These covers all looks so good together, like they’re some kind of awesome squad 🙂 I really love the cover for Nina Hill especially!
Nina Hill was one of my favorite covers from all of 2019.
Hi Suzanne, well this is impressive. I don’t know if I’ve read any book with glasses on the cover…hmm, must look at my Read list on GR. Great collage and all the covers are quite beautiful. Love the color and illustrations.

I love the glasses on Maria Semple’s book. It always makes me smile.
Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse recently posted…Review: Heartland (Sarina Bowen)
Me too. 🙂
omg I love this post! I feel like I have a very old Pinterest board with covers with glasses. Yes, I found it. I also had Heist Society, Between You and Me, the Disenchantments…
Thank you! I’ll have to check those covers out because those books are new to me. 🙂
What a fun take on this week’s topic! 🙂 I’ve always like the covers of Fumbled (and Intercepted). Although Blitzed made my least favorite covers list today. Ha! One, because by now I am sooo tired of all the illustrated covers. And two, I’m sure my feelings about the book now taint how I view the cover.

Oh no! My whole post is basically illustrated covers, lol.
I am so sad that Helen Hoang’s book was pushed back, but it is a great cover. That woman looks like someone, who could go toe to toe with Quan. Death Prefers Blondes really captures the cheekiness of that book, so I like that a lot
Sam@wlabb recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday: Getting Personal
I’m sad about that too. I’m so ready to read it.
Awesome and unique take on the cover freebie! I love these covers (especially Heart Principle, eek I’m so excited for that book)! Slay looks really amazing as well and Nina Hill is one of my favourite ‘gives-me-happy-vibes’ covers! Great list 🙂

That’s so original Suzanne! I never pay attention to glasses on covers LOL

Love your choice this week!

These topics are the best! To be honest, I’ve never noticed covers of people with glasses, but it makes me want to go through my bookcase to see if I actually have an, particularly since, like you,I wear glasses.(lol) Hugs, RO

It’s funny how everyone notices different things when they look at covers. Glasses are definitely my thing, lol.
Illustrated covers don’t seem to be fading away, they seem to have become the “in” thing… They’re pretty cool. Some I adore, others are a bit blah. Either way, they’re interesting to look at!
Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books recently posted…Mini Review: How Winston Delivered Christmas by Alex T. Smith
I agree. They definitely seem to be the trend right now.
I really enjoyed My Sister the Serial Killer. And I was just gifted a copy of Slay for my birthday and I am SO EXCITED to read it, you would not believe. I have always had interest in Where’d You Go Bernadette as well… And I have the bookish life of nina hill and should probably read it sooner rather than later. American Royals looks good to me too ^.^

I still need to read Slay. I’ve heard great things about it so I’m hoping I’ll love it.
